    Does anyone on this web sit no about mobile phone technology?. You see I have a friend in Mexico, they try too text me but it never arrives at my end here in the uk. They put +44 before they text.

    Thank you

    do they drop the 0?

    international calls to the UK drop the leading zero

    so a london number moves from 020 to 0044 20 (0044 and +44 are the same, not all phones understand + though)

    That's right mate or 00 if the mobile does not understand +.

    This is the case for any phone call either a mobile or land line
