Have you tried 01?

In the UK we use 44 then take the first 0 off the number, you could try something like this?

If my number was 012345 and I was calling from outside the UK i would phone (44)12345

It was just an idea anyways, like the guys above say best idea is prob Hobbyking live chat or forums, good luck!

I just tried a new account and I just used my area code and no country code. You have to pick your country in the shipping section.
The account I have doesn't show a country code either.

On the upper right hand corner where the live chat button is check that your country (USA) is showing. The site's default is now Hong Kong...click that button and a drop down will appear, select USA. Also click on the next button to the right (currency) and select USD instead of HKD.

You should now be able to place your order using your telephone number.
