Two questions:
Were living in BA for 3 months and arrived 2 wks ago but are having a lot of confusion on how to dial cells phones as well as some landline numbers. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
We have a prepaid phone card that has worked except we dont always understand the prefixes required to reach a number. Cell phones have a 15 then an 8 digit number, but when (what) do we need to precede the 15 with some other numbers. For example, someone wrote a cell phone number like this (XXXX) 15X-XXXXXX , so after the 15 there arent 8 numbers. Maybe they omitted a digit? And how do I dial the parenthasized 4 digits? Were in the San Telmo area if that makes any difference.

2nd question: Private tango lessons. Were are trying to find some but the price seems to keep going up and up and seem outrageous to what were used to paying in the US. I know the qualtiy is probably far superior here, but we have been quoted anywhere from $55 - $90 US$$ and up for an hour. Any recommendations or advice?

Trish, all the cell numbers from my friends are (15) + 8 digits.

For tango lessons, check this post and see if you can contact any of the teachers listed. Those priced you posted seem a bit high.

Thanks for the info re cell #s. It appears the person omitted a digit when she wrote it down for me. In BA I should just have to dial the 15 and 8 digit # (assuming I have a prepaid phone card). No other prefix like for a certain neighborhood, correct?

And, Im sorry to be dense but when I click on the link for the post it takes me to Scientific American.com.
