Will the SIM card work with my phone?
As long as your cell phone is unlocked or is locked to AT&T and has the 850 and 1900 Mhz bands, it is compatible with your 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.
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.
Where can I get more talk time?
You can get additional call credit either through Cellular Abroad or directly from AT&T from the handset 24/7.
Will it work as soon as I land in Mexico?
Yes, and it works in the USA and Canada too.
Does the SIM offer data?
While you may be able to get data, the rates are so expensive that we tell our customers that it does not offer data. For an affordable data solution for Mexico, please visit http://www.cellularabroad.com/DataSIMmexico.php.
Can I keep my usual number?
That depends on their plan. A great option is to add the “US Number” feature to your service.
Can I keep my usual number?
Yes you can. Simply forward your current number to the new number.
Can I use the SIM card next year when I go to Mexico?
Yes. As long as you add $100, the credit is good for 365 days.
