    How do I send texts back to the UK when at disney. Last time I tried it and it just came up everytime saying could not be sent. Yet a friend could text me every time. It looks like they have their numbers in the phone with 44 in front where as I have 020 is that it?

    If I recall, you dial 044 and then the number here in the UK omitting the first "0" of the number. ie area code 01785 would be 1785....at least I think that`s correct!
