Making calls and phone usage
Hi!! I am writing to find out how to use phones in the United Kingdom. (Both in Scotland and England.) I am from the United States and I'd like to know if I could use my regular cell phone while visiting there or if it is recommended to buy an international phone for making calls. If an international phone for making calls is recommended, how do they work, here can I get one and how long do they last? Lastly, when dialing in the U.K., what numbers do I dial? Thanks, Nichonar
