What are exit codes, and why do I need them?

We've all been there. Your friend or family member overseas is waiting for your call. You've double-checked the phone number a hundred times, but for some reason the call just won't go through. Meanwhile, in your loved one's time zone, the clock is ticking and it's just about time to leave for work.

Most of us know we need a country code to call our friends overseas, but did you know you also need an exit code to dial out of your country?
