The problem of how to call Belize from the US is now out of the way but you may still find some difficulties popping up, as international dialing can be fraught with difficulties.

Check the settings on your cell phone.

Many if not most cell phones have settings to help you avoid accidentally calling international destinations and accruing huge bills. Just be sure your phone has the proper settings in place and all should be fine.

Area code? Not necessarily.

When calling international cell phones you won’t need an area code in every instance. Leave it on or remove it depending on which country you’re trying to hit up.

Dump the trunk.

The 0 found at the start of a few phone numbers in countries around the world is called a trunk code, and it’s only used when calling from within those nations.
