I am sure many of you have been looking, without success, for $500 Amigo cards. Yesterday, a Telcel rep told me that this was because of fraud and that they would return "soon". I am having trouble with that explanation. You can recharge your account by paying direct at OXXO and other stores but for $500 you can only get $500 in credit, as opposed to the regular $900. That sucks. You can buy a $300 card and get $450 in credit, so it now costs you $600 for the $900 in credit, a fat 20% increase. So yesterday Mr. Bundy and I headed out to Telcel to search out if a monthly plan was acceptable or if we should just deal witht the 20% increase. One bit of good news is that after July 5 you have number portability so you can keep your existing number if you switch from the pay as you go Amigo to a plan. That is not the case if you were to switch today or if you switch to another service provider. Then, to really confuse us, the clerk kept trying to sell us a plan that was clearly more expensive than the Mas por Menos plan if you are more than a minimal user. To make it more confusing, all of the charges are not on the literature or the website and some that appear are quite confusing. Then she says that for a plan it is an 18 month contract but that you can cancel at anytime. Sounds like my deal with my ex girlfriend. Additionally you no longer see the yellow shirts at some of the more active intersections, with the guys and gals selling Amigo cards at red lights. Wasn't it Chicago that sang - "DOES ANYBODY REALLY KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING?" No, I think the question was "... what time it is?" So what is going on and can anyone suggest the best plan for those of us who use one or more $500 cards per month?
