An international call is a call to a number dialed outside of your country.
Dialing International Numbers
To make calls to another country, lift the handset to receive a dial tone and enter your "Outbound Dial Digit" followed by 011, which is the international access code, and then the "country code" followed by the local number. In addition to country codes, some countries also have city codes that you dial after the country code but before the local number.
- Note: Beginning March 13, 2015, all new users added to the ShoreTel Sky phone system are restricted from dialing international phone numbers by default. This does not affect existing users added prior to this date. To enable international dialing, an Authorized Contact can create a Support Case to communicate the necessary information to ShoreTel Sky Support. Just provide the name and phone number of the user who needs to be enabled to dial international phone numbers.
