    i have been trying to text someone in antigua, guatemala and have checked various forums which say that i need to have the cel carrier code -- 3, 4 or 5, plus the 502 area code, and one said to add a 9 -- in order to send a text. one site said to use the + sign instead of the 00 exit code, but so far, i see no indication that the person on the other end has received any of the messages i've tried to send. how do i do this? surely it can't be that complicated. can you help me?

    Thanks for your question.

    It sure isn't complicated to send a text message internationally.
    Guatemala uses 8 digit cell phone numbers starting with either 3, 4 or 5. To the 8 digit number you would add either 00502 or +502 when calling or texting from Costa Rica. 00 is the code used to call or text internationally from your country and 502 is Guatemala's country code. The plus sign replaces the 00 exit code, but both should work fine.
