I have iPhone 6 with international $40. I can text but I can't phone. The carrier here is Movistar. When I phone the msg says I am not dialling correctly. I can't call back to Canada

This could help:

Dial 00 for international access
Dial 1 (country code for Canada)
Dial the number (should be a 10 digit number)

Doesn't work. All my Canada numbers are entered as 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx

If you have your contact numbers saved as +1-xxx-xxxx, you'll always be able to dial out, no matter where you roam.

I figured it out. The + has to go first! Then 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx
