international calling

I went to Scotland for 2 weeks and added on the international calling ($35 for 7 days 2x}. While there I could not call home to the US, but my text and data worked. Do I use the Scotland country code and US country code to call, or just US code? I tried each individually, and combinedbut still couldn't get through. Wondering if its something i did wrong or if add on is not up to snuff

You do need the +1 when dialing a US number from abroad. The +1 is the US country code.

When you are calling a US number, you dial it just as if you were still in the United States.

The number you put in is who you are calling. So you put the United States country code if you are calling back home. You use the Scotland code if you are calling some place in Scotland.

(Also I envy you. One side of my family came from there. Haven't had the opportunity to travel yet).
