@rossputin , you might not like it. I was checking so old posts and I think you asked this question before about if Ireland is included in the Holiday give-a-way
The "400" minute bonus from December 2019 and the "500" minute bonus from December 2020 was said to cover Canada, United States, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Italy, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom, and Venezuela.
But.. the best way to find out is to try it out. You have so many mins left still, try it out.
Discussing with a friend today, we wondered why can't it just me like any other long distance call?
That is Dial "011" plus country code and city code then 999 (or applicable number).
Happily pay charges for an emergency.
999 isn't a regular phone number. Please don't try dialing this for information purposes unless you pre-arrange a non-emergency test. I suspect that variations of 911, 999, and 112 may all go to the same place and be answered by someone relatively local to your geographical location. I also think that if you had an emergency with a family member in a different country such as the person you're talking to starts slurring words, 911 here might be able to help you, or to at least get someone on the line who can. You could call your local police department's division/precinct to ask for information (do not call 911 for this; call a regular phone number to contact them).
@rossputin : I'm not sure _any_ provider can do that. I suppose technically the world could allow that but I don't think anyone does. Perhaps it would be a language thing. Imagine the time wasted getting around language barriers.
But I go back to what circumstance would make it that someone in a whole other continent would be needing to call 911. On the phone and the other end stops talking and you hear a banging and thudding and no further talk from them. Maybe.
As for charges, they don't do after the fact charges here.
Just did some research online:
As mentioned above, directly call police station near person. Call a friend or family in the same country.
Hopefully, this does not happen often. Stressful situation.
Had a family emergency today in Europe. The problem is that I am Canada.
Any suggestions on how someone here can contact 112 or 999 over there?
You'll need a long ditsance add-on to call the country in Europe if it's a country included in the add-on. Call a regular non emergency number of the police or fire department for that place. They will connect you.
