    How to convert mobile phone number to international format?

    I've got kids ID bands for on holiday to put my mobile number on but how do I convert it to international format?

    it starts 07779 but I assume I should write it starting 44

    Double-check before you go that you can ring and receive calls when abroad using the phone service you've got. My Swedish sim card doesn't work in the UK, but my ex-OH's does.

    The number would be like the others have said: 00 44 7779

    FM

    If you're using a mobile, you can dial/text either 00 44 7779 or + 44 7779. I got a text from a friend in Australia and the number came up as +63xxxxxx but if I called him on the land line I would dial 00 63 xxxxxx. Does that make sense?
