In general, it should work, but there are no guarantees. There's always the possibility of the caller id getting lost somewhere along the way, but it should usually work from Canada - from other countries it'll be less reliable. I would expect either the correct number, or "out of area/unavailable". Now, if you're calling a toll free number they will probably get a number ...

And can AT&T tell how many cellphones are in range of a specific tower and can AT&T tell how many cellphones are connected to your network throughout an entire city? It's complicated. For 2G, ...

But AT&T voice calls do not use 3G, 3G is used for data transmission I believe. That is not correct. In UMTS (3G GSM) voice and data is carried on the same channel. That's why you can have an active...

Sorry to tire you redpoint73. The original poster was asking about calling internationally from his AT&T phone. I thought it would be helpful to point out that there are easy ways he can bypass the very expensive rates AT&T is charging, as he may not be aware of this option. Note that I didn't suggest he should change carriers to get better international rates; I'm well a...

Justanother, AT&T's rates are downright awful, even with the discount plan. You can find many services that allow you to call a domestic number and then dial out internationally (many not even requiring a PIN, they recognize your number), that cost a fraction of AT&T's rate. Not as convenient as being able to dial directly, but the rates AT&T charges are highway robbery an...

Yes, you will get charged. Your US carrier doesn't know or care where your friend is roaming, the messages you send will still get delivered by your carrier to the Netherlands, and your friend's carrier will deliver them to him wherever he's roaming.

That sounds like the behavior of the conditional forwarding codes on T-Mobile. Rather than disabled them, they are accepted, but they immediately enable everything again and set it to their default number. In my area at least, AT&T just disallows the codes altogether, which is still annoying but at least they are upfront about disabling them. Maybe AT&T has done the same t...

Thanks for the confirmation. Unfortunately the different destination number doesn't tell me much as in our area I've seen several different VM deposit destinations in use. It's just that I've once seen some strange behavior from an iPhone in response to GSM VM codes, but it could also have been a result of incomplete migration of the account from a BJ to iPhone. I'm curio...

Visual voicemail only differs on how you access your voicemail, but calls are forwarded to your mailbox the same way as with regular voicemail. You can easily confirm that by checking condition...

I found this reference with a quick Google search: http://www.accesscomms.com.au/Reference/gsmcodes.htm Not everything is supported by every carrier of course, so don't be surprised to find that most of them don't work on AT&T.
