SOLVING THE RIDDLE OF
WORLDWIDE COMPUTER AND MODEM USE
Guide to Index
The index is below our phone products. Blank areas mean there is no relevant information. Your help in building a complete worldwide phone resource would be much appreciated by not only us but other travelers. Also, we've made every attempt to make this a comprehensive index of the world's phone systems, access numbers, and so on. However, we cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions. (And if you find one, please let us know!) Thanks to those who have contributed information to make this index as complete as possible.
The RJ-11 is the closest telephone jack to being universal, and is spreading rapidly. (It is the one found in North America.) If your computer/modem is designed for it, you do not need an adapter when visiting a country with the same system. The product numbers for other telephone adapters are given for countries with different systems. Some countries have two or more possibilities. Of course, if you know you will be staying where there is wireless access, no phone jack adapter is necessary.
