    Default Calling a 1-800 number from Nicalandia to the USA

    I am about to pull my hair out trying to order some things from WW Grainger in the USA...

    Can't figure out how to dial a Blasted 1-800 number; I have tried every combination I can think of and the locals are no help, all they know to do is call family asking for money...

    The Blasted internet thang of sending them a message even when I put all the correct info as I know it in all the Blasted boxes marked with a *

    And IT DON"T GO....

    This is so frustrating I could SPIT....

    HELP!

    AFAIK, 1-800 numbers cannot be used outside the USA.

    Who phones in mail order stuff these days, anyway?

    That's been my general approach--go online and find a non 800 number to call. One time I was told to go thru the ATT operator in Managua, but that led nowhere.
    Social Security has a 800 # that works( but they keep you on hold for an hour and then don't have an answer to your question).
