You might still be stuck, though, with your attempt to call Algeria. To be blunt, there are a lot of strange and not so well-known rules to international calling you are probably not familiar with, so double-check and make sure one of the following isn‘t causing you grief:

International calls get blocked

Some cell phones come with the manufacturer‘s default settings. If your phone is one of these, it may be set to auto block any incoming or outgoing international calls.

Trunk codes and you

If you are trying to dial a number that has a zero as its starting digit, you‘ll need to drop it. When a zero is the first digit of a phone number, it‘s referred to as the number‘s “trunk code,” and it‘s used in few circumstances, in particular when calling within a handful of countries. Chances are you should leave the trunk code off.

Internet phones

Some VoIP or Internet phones make it possible to skip using 011 as your exit code altogether. So if you‘re calling from one of these, go to Settings and find out if this feature is on... and dial accordingly.

Are you finding, though, that while it‘s great to be able to call to Algeria, it would be even better if your relatives back there could call you?
