    Calling a cell phone in Argentina is a bit tricky hence the need for this post.

    Facts we should point out:

    • Dialing an Argentina cell phone requires adding the region/city area code to the mobile number you want to call.
    • Digit 9 (nine) must be added between country code and area code.
    • If the cell number begins with 15 these 2 digits must be dropped.
    • Area code + cell number must total 10 digits.

    Example: You are given this cell number from Buenos Aires: 15 ???? ????. Let’s say you are in the United Kingdom so you will dial the following: 00 (UK exit code) + 54 (country code for Argentina) + 9 + 11 (Buenos Aires area code) + ???? ???? (cell number). As you can see we left out the 15 used for calls within Argentina and we added 9 before the area code.
