    Or
    63 xxxxxxx

    Some time back I ran into a few hiccups with my banking back home. Many, many banks can give you immediate international help or assistance with in their business day hours through Messenger on "Farce book".... You may know it as "Facebook". They will even call you within a moment or two. Been dare, done dat. Cheers!

    to call US customer service numbers (like wells), on skype, we call:
    +1 800 xxx xxxx
    it's always free, never had a problem, only when the number is not 24 hr and we get the 12 hr diff screwed up. Am i missing something ??

    "+63" effectively replaces only the "0" in Philippine phone numbers. +63 is used internationally but it can be used domestically in the Philippines if you care to dial the extra digits. The call still goes through as if you dialed simply the "0". If the next digit after the 0 is a 9, then you are calling a cell phone and you incur charges (unless you qualify for one of the gazillion confusing promotions that Smart and Globe cook up daily to keep the system as confusing and annoying as possible.)

    I think you can make US calls (+1) for free using Google Phone, too.
