thanks for your feedback, I'll forward your comments along @Sajidbaloch
How do we get thing added to the international calling list? I would love to see Costa Rica added to this list. Myself and many other Canadians have homes there or expat communities could benefit from this for sure. How do we request or vote on such additions?
Good questions and it's not as easy as it sounds. All we can do, as mods, is forward your comments along to our back-end team @
These are Americans, when they say "international" what they mean is America. I'm not sure they realise the rest of the world exists!
1. Who are replying to?
2. Who are you referring to?
3. I hardly think they would think international would mean inside the US. Oh hey would it be an international call to call South Dakota from North Dakota?
4. They are generally thought of as pretty insular. But those are stereotypes.
I was replying to the guy who wants to call China. I am irritated that I was fooled by by Public Mobile with their wording "international". I also can't phone or SMS home, and that is horrible when one is travelling. Almost all bank accounts need to get PIN numbers. I ended up living without money because I couldn't contact my bank - without pins I could not prove I was me.
I am still having a problem with public mobile ITSELF, because they are now sending PINS to my Canadian phone now I am in South Africa and I can't receive them.
Yes, it's a stereotype. So are jokes about Scots being mean (the ones I have met aren't), Germans being organised (ok, mostly they are), British being polite (mmm). Don't be too sensitive about it - it's just the way, in general, that the USA thinks about it's place in the world. Don't take my word for it, just ask Google.
When the rest of the world refers to "America", we include the whole of North America and South America, and not just the United States of America, which is a country. South and North Dakota are states, not countries, so no, I wouldn't call that international.
Maybe this could clarify the situation:
