How to Text A Cuban Cell Phone?

We have just returned from Brisas Guardalavaca and while there we met some local new friends who we spent alot of time with and they left us their cell numbers to text.

I am trying to figure out how to do it! I have tried alot of different methods but realy not sure if they are going thru.

Could someone tell me how i would punch in these 2 different cell numbers to send a text to them?

one they gave was 0152390xxx (hiding the last 3 numbers for privacy)

the other one was 58-39-79-xx (hiding last 2 numbers for privacay)

any ideas whats missing?

Texting depends on your provider. But for Cuba, you have to add 53 (code for the country) then either 53 or 52 or 58 (code for a cellphone).

So for the first number, it's 53 52 39 0x xx

And for the second, it's 53 58 39 79 xx

Not sure about the second number, but the first seems to be missing a number, try 01152390xxx

Edited, sorry I meant 0115352390xxx

Forgot to add, your friends may not respond to you if they recieved your text , because it cost them 1CUC a message, but tell them to "miss call" you (ring onces, or twice, to let you know, but DON'T ANSWER the call , or they will pay even more !) .

Lenny is right - 011 53 then the 8 digit phone number. That's it.

01 = international call

1 = long distance call

53 = country code for Cuba
