Generally because if you include the country code in a number, it will work anywhere...

In case you're calling from overseas I would think? +44 will still work uk to uk...
0044 or +44 is the international dialling code from overseas to the UK, it is used as a prefix to a UK number replacing the first 0.

0034 or +34 is the one for Spain.
+44 mean 0 as some people say but I have tried it and it dose not work. I tried it 3 times and it wouldn't accept it at all

Check the rest of the number you're dialling then... +44 is the international dialling code for the UK. Just remove it and replace with a 0, that's all you need to do.
If your number already starts with a 0, eg 02567892, then for international calls to the UK where you have a +44 you remove the 0 so it would be +442567892 for calling from the Uk or overseas. If you only want uk to uk calls, then you can remove the +44 part completely if you want and then just have the 02567892 number.

Uk number? Replace the 44 with a 0


"+44" is the country code for UK but there are different ones for different countries obviously and you don't need to replace the +44 you can just add the number your dialling instead of placing the "0" just start with the next number.

Well, it was back in 2009.

I wonder if it is still the case now this thread has been resurrected.
Resurrection of perhaps the most stupid question ever submitted. Google did exist back then.
