The codes required depend on where you are calling from as well as the destination of your call; in addition,
each country has a different dialing protocol. If you need assistance in determining which codes to use,
contact a local or an international operator.

are most often used to call long distance within your own country (not internationally)—in other words,
when your call originates in the same country you are calling.
