    Hi,

    My friend seems to have the same problem. I am using a Blackberry Curve 8900 on the O2 network and he’s got an Blackberry 8100 on ‘Orange’. It works on mine.

    If you are getting messages with +44 and an English number, your Argentinian friend must’ve sent you a text first (?). You should be able to simply click ‘reply’ as this works for me. However, what is odd is that if I text this friend in particular by using her own mobile number, her reply appears with an English number. Must be something to do with who texts first.

    Re: delivery reports. I had a tick next to one of my texts and I know for a fact it didn’t get to Argentina. I rang O2 and they said that the tick only means it’s gone as far as the English network, not Argentinian one.

    SUCCESS!!!!

    I forgot to mention that to call Argentina you need a ‘9’ between the country code and the code(11) for Buenos Aires. Sorry. I removed the ‘9’ and can now send texts to Argentina. You were right 😉 Thanks.

    To sum up: CALLING BUENOS AIRES FROM UK 0054 9 11 ???? ???? but omitting the first ’15’of their 10-digit mobile number.

    SENDING TEXTS (SMS) FROM UK TO BUENOS AIRES: same as above but remove the ‘9’.
    0054 11 ???? ???? (remove prefix ’15’)

    HAPPY TEXTING!

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I have several Argentinian mobile numbers now and didn’t want to have to ring them at great cost to explain that they need to text me first. It would also mean I have to store 2 numbers for each of them. I’ve tried texting using the same number as the calls and it doesn’t work. I wonder if it’s their frequency band or something like their messaging centre works differently to ours in UK. The texts definately leave the UK as I have a tick next to the text as a pose to a cross which I’ve had with other attempts.

    Thanks, Jez
