Communicating by phone in Buenos Aires is very easy. Local mobile phone, fixed phones, prepaid cards and locutórios are the four options for anyone around in Buenos Aires, including tourists. We have prepared some tips to make you more relaxed and able to talk with your family whenever you need.
Fixed: If you will choose one of the Expanish housting options probably your home will have a landline phone. With it, you can make local calls (to get a taxi or ask for a pizza, for example) and also to make calls to other countries. In most cases you will need a prepaid card to use the phone.
Prepaid cards: With these cards you can call to anywhere in the world. The card has a toll-free number. When calling this number you will have to nter the code that is marked on the card itself and then the phone number of the person you want to talk to. It will take you a bit of time to actually do this but it´s worth it because the prices are low. This system can be used with public and fixed home phones
