Mexico Prepaid SIM Card

In a fit of elusion, you decided to tell your mother you were going to see the pyramids. "Oh Egypt, that would be wonderful."

Taking a snapshot of yourself in front of the Pyramid of the Sun you send it along to her with the note: "Teotihuacan, Mexico."

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Mexico or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Mexico SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.

What our partner Telestial says

A prepaid Mexico SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while in Mexico. All incoming calls while in Tijuana, Mexico are FREE, regardless of where they originate. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Mexico like you do at home. And unlike home, your Mexico SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Mexico includes:

  • 300 Pesos ($30) starter airtime credit
  • FREE incoming calls (only in Tijuana)
  • A local number while in Mexico
  • SMS (text messages)
  • Voicemail
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Mexico SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 1900 compatible international cell phone. If you do not have your own international cell phone, Telestial has several compatible models available for your review and consideration.

Global SIM Cards
