Two dialing codes for long distance phone calls are 10-10-987 and 10-10-100. Not requiring monthly fees, both services only charge the user for each minute he places calls via the numbers.
To call a long distance number via 10-10-100, you must dial a number that consists of 10-10-100, 001, the country code, the area code and the telephone number. Replace 001 with 1 if calling a number in North America, and remove the country code if calling a number in the United States. For instance, you should dial 10-10-100-011-353 followed by the area code and the telephone number of the receiver to call a person in Ireland. In comparison, a number in the United States should follow 10-10-100-1.
