With a number of readers heading south of the border during the cold months and for Spring Break, we're looking for your experience using wireless in Mexico. Over the last few years we have tried every Mexican cellular service except Nextel. This year, we have only been using the roaming capabilities of US carriers instead of buying local SIM's and phones. While the challenges we had using Mexico accounts gave us something to write about, plain 'ol roaming has worked without problems...so far. And with our AT&T GoPhone, it has been relatively cheap. Expect a full report in a few weeks.
Mexico operators have been making small, but not insignificant changes to their wireless services, which may further reduce the advantage of using local Mexican cellular. The latest reports are shown on our Mexico Roaming Page. We'd like to hear your stories, either here or By Email. ¡Buen viaje!
