    I've only used the Skype app to call the US and didn't have to dial anything other than 1 & 10 digit number.

    My understanding is that if you're calling from a USA number to Aruba you dial 011+297+phone number. I have never tried it as we use face time or wifi calling. Check to see if you have wifi calling available on your cell phone and you'll avoid any charges.

    I do have wifi calling on my home phone app but in another country you must call as if you were sitting in your living room. If I was calling home, I just hit the speed dial button or whatever, same as if I was sitting in my living room. so if I was home and trying to call Aruba, what would I dial, lol? Don't I have to dial 011+297+number???

    Yes, I would think so. 011 for overseas, 297 for Aruba + number - however, I suggest contacting your carrier to confirm.

    if you are using Skype, there is a drop down menu lists country codes then all you do is add in the area code and number.

    this morning i clicked USA, and typed in the area code and my friend's number.

    i called Bavaria restaurant yesterday using Skype. i clicked on Aruba and typed in the area code 297 and the number.
