In the lessons Sonia, said that "dica" means, "(you) tell me". So I took it to mean when a person says, "dica", they are saying a slang-like or shortened version of "tell me what you'd like", etc.
For the other part, I believe you may mean "pronto" instead of "prego". An example of this use was when answering a telephone. The person said "pronto" making it basically the same concept as "dica". They are telling you that they are "ready" to hear what is on the other line; as if to say, "I'm ready. Talk to me!"
Prego can be used to say, "you're welcome", or "no problem". Ex: Grazie per la sua domanda. Prego!
