International Dialing Codes
Also known as IDD (International Direct Calling) or ISD (International Subscriber Dialing). These codes are used when calling international numbers. For example, to call from Japan to the UK, you need to dial 010-44-(+phone number). That´s why having a cloud international phone number is so important.
In this case we are talking about local prefixes, also known as trunk codes, which usually consist of one or two numbers. This code has to be dialed when calling certain countries; however, usually it is not required when contacting foreign phone numbers.
