One must remember that those numbers (except the 3 digit emergency numbers) are Tunis numbers and would be no good for people who live outside of Tunis.
I understand that the three digit emergency service numbers would only work in Tunisia - in country - like 911 works hereOne must remember that those numbers (except the 3 digit emergency numbers) are Tunis numbers and would be no good for people who live outside of Tunis.
Here is an example of the different city codes in relations to phone numbers (of course this is not a complete list!):
CARTHAGE/TUNIS/TUNIS SUBURBS (Capitol) - 71
BIZERTE/HAMMAMET/NABEUL (North/Northeast) - 72
KNEISS/MAHDIA/MONASTIR/SOUSSE (East coast) - 73
CHEBA/SFAX - 74
GABES/MEDENINE/TATAOUINE (Southeast)- 75
GAFSA/SIDI BOUZID/TOZEUR (Southwest) - 76
KAIROUAN/KASSERINE (Midwest) - 77
BEJA/KEF (Northwest)- 78
TAXI PHONES (Pay Phones) - 79
TUNISIE TELECOM CELL PHONES - 9 (90,91,92,94,95,96,97,98,99)
TUNISIANA CELL PHONES - 2 (20,21,22,23,24,25,26)
from my cell phone, to my hubby in the states. the card went too fast. in the States a $5 dollar card gives me 20-35 minutes to Tunisia.Where are you calling? I spent 3 dinars last night calling my grandma in Texas and we talked for about 5 minutes. 5 minutes 20 seconds to be exact (my phone times the calls).
When I first moved here, there was an older woman. Tunisian. Very rude. She made everything very difficult for us and would not give us a straight answer for the documents we needed for certain things. I disliked her a LOT (and so did a lot of other people). I was always going to the Embassy so much though that over the years she started being nice to us. She left in 2005 I think it was and the people that came after her got to know me really well because I'm there so much (you'd think I like to go there or something! ).Sounds like nice people at the US Embassy,can you send them over to the British Embassy and get them to move thier arses?
The consular has been there for about a year or two I think. It;s the vice consular that is pretty new. Not sure how new, but he wasn't here last year when I had things that needed to be done.so its a new Consular? when we applied, what 6 years ago its was a woman from the Seattle area.:w:
