Example: if you wanted to call 970-543-6800 from Manila, you would dial 0+961+0+970+543+6800. The international code for the Philippines is 632.

Calling from outside the Philippines is an international example. When calling from outside the Philippines, dial the nation's exit code, followed by the country code "63" and the local phone number. An operator will hear you over the phone network that tells her which city or town you are calling from.
When calling internationally, first check with your carrier to find out how much it will cost you. Most have a minimum charge for all calls made from your phone number - usually $10-20 per month. This is called "outbound calling" and can only be done from certain phone numbers. Other people may try to sell you special packages that include long distance calls - check with these companies instead. They might offer lower rates than your carrier does - especially if you talk a lot.
Once you've found a good deal, ask your carrier to connect your call to the country you want to call. Some countries require you to pay an additional fee to call from the Philippines. These fees can range from $0.05-$0.15 per minute - so keep that in mind when making calls. If a foreign country codes into the system when you make an international call, the connection is free. Otherwise, you'll need to pay extra.
Now that you know how to call from outside the Philippines, give it a try!
