I'm on Optus Pre-Paid. I need to be able to recieve one phonecall in Thailand, from Thailand.

I've activated auto-roam through optus.

My number starts with 0431.
The person needs to call 61431 instead of the above, right?

in thailand? yeah id assume so.

As the '0' in a phone number simply means 'no area code'

hence it becomes 61 in some cases (aus country code).

Just like when you dial home from overseas, its (im in brisbane) 61 7 0000 0000. Normally the area code is 07, not just 7, but I already told the phone im in the country with the 61.

That's pretty much what I though too. Sometimes I get numbers on my phone as +614xxxxxxx rather than 04xxxx, so I figure it's right :)

I lost my roaming enabled phone in thailand once, and called it from a net cafe because i thought it had been nicked...

called 0011 61 + my phone num as you would in aus, but Thailand is 001 to escape...
So that number connected me to someone in Denver(4am there), who I proceeded to abuse for stealing my phone!
He was a little confused.

Which is why mobiles have the + before the country code, it replaces the International dial out code no matter where you are.

Depending on the make of phone you usually double press * or zero to get it, some phones you hold it down.
