Yes +6427...

+ = the countries international dialing code.. most countries are 00 (so they dial 006427...) but not all countries

Thanks

EG: Australia would be 00116427XXXXXX as dialled locally

give them 6427xxxxxxx and tell them to add the normal international code for their country. and +6427xxxxxxx if they wish to send you an SMS.

simple rule, Drop the  leading 0, add 64 and the IntDirectDialCode to the beginning which is usually 0011 or 00

0011 64 27 1234567

Hi

The Country was Canada and I gave them +6427MyCellNo.

I think I should have given them 006427MyCellNo.

Oh Dear..

Nope, that is correct, they should be able to figure out what +64 means, if they don't know already. For North Amercia the IAC is 011, so 0116427XXXXXXX.

No. You give them +6427.  Each country uses a different long distance code, which goes in place of +. In New Zealand it's 00. In US and Canada is 011. They know what code to dial instead of +.

The country code is 64, the area code is 27. Whatever comes before that is dependent on the country they are calling from and you don't have to know it.
