    You can't text message down there because it is on analog. And you do have to do like Jason has said and call your provider and switch it over. There is quite a bit of cel phone fraud down there so they have to open up your line for access down there. I do it every time I go and no problems.

    I might bring mine. When I went in August, the 2 way pager on my MIKE phone worked but not the actual calling. I could page any Nextel / TELUS person that had a 2 way pager on their phone

    Cingular worked just fine in Cancun.

    Higher per minute rate, but no monthly fee for international service. I think I paid US$0.50/minute or something like that.

    LEAVE YOUR PHONES AT HOME, Invest in a cheap 20 dollar prepaid phone, and by calling cards provided by telcel i believe. I have had the same phone number for years on my phone mexican prepaid, all i do is buy calling cards. I found a 200 minute phone card unused laying around at my house the other day so im good too go as soon as i touch down

    You can purchase cheap phones as low as 10-20 us dollars at the walmart , or cell phone stores in mexico. So buy a cheap one because the chip thats inside the phone, does not work once u leave mexico.
