There is one final tricky part here. We have done our best to correct this issue in almost all of our numbers, but you may still run into this, if you had gotten a phone number from some other agency. In the countries of former Soviet Union, one dials "8" before the area code to get a long distance line. It's much like dialing "1" in the US. Therefore, a lot of users put an "8", or "+8" in front of their number, and that makes it look as a country code. However, the country code for Russia is "7". So you need to replace the digit "8" in front of the phone number with the digit "7", if only digit "8" is not part of area code.
To start using your service in an unlocked GSM phone simply:
- Travel to Russia
- Set your cell phone to the GSM 900/1800 frequency
- Be sure the battery on your international cell phone is charged
- Insert the Russia SIM chip into the cellular phone
- Turn on your phone
- Enter PIN1 code*(Only if your phone asks you to enter a PIN)
- Add the included recharge voucher by dialing *110#(18-digit voucher code)# and then pressing the Send or Yes key
- Start calling
*Your Russia SIM card may require a 4-digit PIN code which can be found under the black tab located under the Russia SIM card. The PUK is only required to unblock you phone if you enter in a PIN code incorrectly. Follow your cell phone manual instructions to correctly use the PUK to unblock your phone.

To call abroad from your Russia cell phone simply dial 00 (or '+') followed by the country code and phone number.
