I'm wondering if anyone might be able to help me. I'm here in BA for a month, getting my ESL certificate. I brought my GSM phone with me, bought a Personal SIM Card and can phone home back to Canada. The problem is that my family is having difficulty calling me. Whatever additional country, city codes, etc.(in front of my eight digit local number here) that I have been given for them to use to reach me here don't work for them. (And a few of them are trying to call me from THEIR cell phones).
Can anyone solve this mystery for us? What exact codes need to be used prior to the eight digit number from Canada? (The operators there have been no help.)

Mariposa, if calling from abroad they can only reach your cell by replacing some digits as follows:
011 54 911 + local cell number without the initial 15.
So they must first drop the 11 from "5411" and replace those 2 digits with 911, then drop the "15" from the standard cell numbers 15-51406792 would be:
011 54 911 51406792
See if that works.
