Mexican phone number

by ZihuaRob ⌂ @, Zihuatanejo, México, Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 14:14 (219 days ago) @ hromero

Hello all.

I have recently moved to Zihuatanejo and will be here for the foreseeable future. I have T-mobile cell service which allows me to use my cell phone as if I am in the United states. I am very happy with the service as I continue to make quite a few phone calls to people in the U.S. both for personal and business reasons. The one thing that I haven't quite figured out is how to get a phone number that local people can use to call me. I understand that quite a few people have "Whatsapp" and I have that as well and have used that to communicate with local cell phones when possible. I continue to struggle with the best way to communicate with local phone numbers particularly with local businesses that I am trying to communicate with. I can call them just fine but it is difficult for them to call me back. Ideally I would like a solution that allows both a mexican number and my current U.S. number to come in on my current cell phone but don't know if that is possible. I wonder if others on this forum might be willing to share how they navigate this particular issue.

Best Regards,
Humberto

¡Bienvenido a la vecindad!

My recommendation is to ditch the t-Mobile account and go with Telcel. They offer unlimited calling to Mexico, the USA and Canada for around $200 a month. If you need internet add another hundred pesos per GB.
