Will the SIM card work with my phone?

How do I know if my phone is unlocked?
You cannot tell physically if your cell phone is unlocked. If you are with AT&T and you put a different SIM card (such as T-Mobile) in and it picks up a network, it is unlocked. Conversely, if you put another SIM card in and it says, "enter subsidy code" or similar, it is locked. Call your carrier to check to see if your phone is unlocked or if it qualifies for being unlocked. If your phone is from AT&T, even though it is not unlocked, you will still be able to use the Mexico SIM card.
Do you offer micro and nano SIM cards?
Yes we do. They are available during checkout.
Why don't I just purchase a SIM card when I get to Mexico?
Purchasing a SIM card in Mexico typically entails a lengthy wait in Mexico. In addition, if you don't speak Spanish, explaining what you need to do may prove to be a challenge. Moreover, this particular SIM card is not sold in Mexico and the rates are definitely more expensive.
How good is the coverage?
In a word; excellent. As a rule of thumb, as long as there are roads that are traveled on and houses where people live, there is coverage, including Baja California.
Will it work as soon as I land in Mexico?
The SIM will work in the US as well as Mexico as soon as it is activated. Please email us the activation date as per the instructions we provide together with the SIM card.
Can I keep my usual number?
Yes you can. While the SIM card will have a different phone number than you currently have, you can forward your current number to the new number, this retaining your usual number.
Can I use the SIM card next year when I go to Mexico?
The service, along with the phone number, will expire after 30 days from activation unless you purchase additional 30 days of service.
