Phoning a landline in California

I need to phone a landline number in California, from my mobile, the number is (503) 356-xxxx last four digits redacted obvs, what do I need to type in to my phone to get through. I am fully aware that in this country at least,
not many people use landlines, so the number may not work. All I have tried so far is +00 then the full numbe, it doesn't work. I got the number from Whitepages. Its a friend I haven't had contact to for nearly 20 years.
TIA

Thanks, just tried that after your suggestion, number not recognised. The listing may be well out of date of course.

It does have a "fixed voip"number which is different, but I have no idea what it is or how to call it.

Did you know that Jim Rockford, of the Rockford Files, had the same number as Ghostbusters, 555 2368.

Area code 555 is used in fillums and teevee as it doesn't exist.

If it's from your mobile it's +1 then the number.
The "+" replaces the 00 for an International call made from the UK and 1 is the US country code.

Can you still use 00 on a mobile? Or is the "+" the only way?

If it's a time saving feature, I would spend more time looking for the "+" symbol than it would to hit 00!

I'm not sure but I think most mobiles are set up for "+" only. This is because if you are roaming internationally the code for an international call is different from country to country. So you can use 00 in the UK but when in the US it's 01 etc (IIRC). So the number in your phone memory (with 00) wouldn't work if you called it from the US.
The "+" overcomes that issue by replacing the the different international access codes worldwide.

Looking in my contacts in the UK, it looks like I have +44 for mobile numbers, but 001 for land lines. Probably never called any of them!
