About Me

TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. One of my joys in life is helping others get ahead in life. Content here will be focused on that from this date forward. John was a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2018) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). I used to write a variety of articles (that you can still find here) on technical issues with a smattering of other interests. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

International Call Test Number

Do you need to test outbound calling to international numbers but your customer doesn’t have anyone just sitting there waiting for your call (how dare they)? Well, Australia to the rescue!

This number is an automated time of day announcement from Australia,so you won’t be harassing anyone.  Keep in mind that your test will incur at least some charges to your customer, so make sure they know ahead of time.

Calling from the US:  011-613-966-94916

You may need to mod the international access prefix for your country, or make sure that your Dial Plan rules do what is needed.  Most users who make these calls will know international access numbers, after all, they are already making these calls.  Your PBX counterparts will also know the appropriate codes – or, they should know.

 

YMMV

@Claus-Ole - thank you. I knew they existed, but had never taken the time to look them up or even use them for this purpose.
