Hi, I live in Mexico and the last time a friend sailed in and had no phone service
I took an old Telcel SIM card I had lieing around and cut it down to size for his smartphone. He used the Mex. number on the SIM and it worked well for the 2 weeks he was here calling England
, Tortola and who knows where else. The Mexico sim Card site is a racket you don't need and at more than double the actual cost.
When you get to Mexico just buy a sim card at a local fast food
store (Oxxo) and it will work fine...Everybody
here has a smartphone, it is a social thing kinda like a sports car in the economy up there......Don't listen to all the hype and BS...And, when you buy airtime here you get extra...I buy 300 Pesos per month and I get $200(pesos) free...un regalo(gift). The airtime costs me 1 peso per minute for a regular phone
. If you want a more detailed account of this email
and I will have a smart phone user give me ALL the details...I have a friend in Telcel as well so I can get you whatever info you need...
Have fun...it is nice down here...Don't let a phone ruin your time!
