AT&T Cell phone coverage?

You can go on line and switch to the Viva Mexico plan (then switch back when you get home). This is different than the International Plan. I used the International plan a couple of years ago while in Europe, still expensive. Also, to get switched you can call a kiosk but preferably an ATT storefront and have them do it for you.

Something odd: I changede some of my stateside numbers to lead with 001+area cade plus 7 digits. Worked fine. But most of my numbers will dial direct without the country code.

ZRob has instructions on how to reach toll free numbers from Mexico. I have used this advice with limited success. My best bet to reach toll free numbers is to have my daughter set her phone to forward to the toll free and I dial her and get forwarded. She only has to do this for a very limited amount of time and then take her phone off call forward.
