Problem with Official Eiffel Tower Site

I'm trying to purchase tickets on the site http://ticket.toureiffel.fr. This is the official site for the Eiffel Tower Ticket office. When I try to register an account and choose the country (it should by U.S.), there is no listing for the U.S. Therefore, when I attempt to list my cell number (required) and use the codes "00 1" before my number, it doesn't allow it. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding this?

I'd really like to get tickets ahead of time rather than wasting so much time waiting in line! Thanks for any help from anyone. I cannot believe that this site doesn't allow purchases from the U.S but it seems that way.

The United States is included in the list of countries, but in French: Etats-Unis.

When entering your phone number, just use your area code and phone number, ten digits, no characters.

Nick is absolutely right - I just did this this week. It helps to know a little bit of French, especially the French name of your own country :-)
