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.
