Hi Liz,

El número de teléfono en España no tiene 9 digítos como he puesto arriba. Tiene sólo ocho. Me equivoqué al escribir. Sorry! ;-)

Sorry again


Explanation:
Hola Liz,

Creo que mejor me voy a dormir porque mi cabecita ya no da para más. El número de teléfono en España tiene 7 digítos, però recientemente han cambiado el sistema y todos (incluso cuando llamamos dentro del país y aunque sea la misma provincia) debemos marcar el código provincial. De aquí que me he liado con los 9, 8 y 7 dígitos. Así queda 4 dígitos prefijo internacional + 2 dígitos para el prefijo provincial + 7 dígitos para el número de teléfono propiamente dicho.

Espero no haberte causado mucha confusión.
Saludos de nuevo,

Explanation:
The right way to write it is by placing
the international country code then the area code and at the end the 7 digit number you wish to send.

Some countries don't need a code for international, for instance central america only needs the area code, if you call from the US only need to dail o11 then the code for the country and then the number, some countries need diferent codes and city codes.

I hope this helps you. SERGIO

(+54-351) xxx-xxxx, or (054)-351) xxx-xxxx


Explanation:
You also put the country code, if you are sending the information out of the country, or only the city code ifyou are sending the information within the country. + means that before the 54 you have to dial the international dialing code (011 in the USA, or 000 in Argentina. This code varies from one country to another, and is not used when dialing with phone cards).

Explanation:
and in Argentina you only put two zeros before the country code for international dialing in Argentina (000 only if you require the operator's assistance)
