Telcel SIM card

Where is the best place to get a Telcel SIM card, flying in Jan 3 staying Mexico for up to 2 months? And what about activation any problems with it?
Cards in SE Asia where I have travelled the past two winters are cheap as borscht with lots of data, how about in Mexico?

29p, available practically anywhere and they come with a few "goodies" on them.

But if you want more than the goodies you get with the SIM card, like unlimited NA talk/text and 1 gig of data, it's another 200 pesos per month.

I think it included 7 days of unlimited Amigo plan, that's unlimited US and Canada.

For here, we just put 100p on the phone every month, the balance carries over, and we do the occasional text and/or whatsapp. A great system.

The Coppel stores have kiosks for TelCel, AT&T and MoviStar. They will install your sim, card, get you a phone number and you can choose from various plans depending on your length of stay. We paid 200P for an AT&T card that gave us unlimited texts and calls to Mexico, Canada and USA, along with 5GB of data. Cheap.

OXXO's are everywhere and sell everything you need. They will help you, too.

The phone number is attached to the SIM card....

Thanks for the info, 200 pesos is a good price now if I could get my Canadian customers to phone a mexican number for my services I'd really be happy. ;-)

You could set up a skype local number, which would use the data on your phone. It would ring on your phone and use your telcel account. But Chatr has very low rates in Canada. 8 gig data unlimited calling and texts only 50$ right now.
