What dial tone will my UK caller hear if I'm abroad in Italy?

As the Subject says...if I'm in Italy what dial tone will somone calling from the UK hear? Im guessing it will be an international tone that sounds different?

@curiouscallerI assume you mean ringing tone? Then yes, they will hear the more European sound when calling you.

 

Their dialling tone remains the same as that is generated locally.

oh, is it called ringing tone? You know, so they dial me and it starts to ring...but will it sounds like the regular ringing noise or will it sound different?

Thanks for your help!

They are likely to hear a different ring, and know you are not in the UK.

 

I've had callers know I'm abroad from it, and some haven't noticed.

Ok so I'm going to level with you... a Girl has told me shes abroad, but when I call her it rings normally...so she isn't abroad is she? Just want to be certain before I sound like I've gone mad lol

Oh, well I was interested, just too polite to ask Robot LOL

 

There are always going to be exceptions, E.g calls may be routed thorugh a different path that gives the UK ringing tone, so I wouldn't go just on that, just in case!
