Flat Rate Mobile Internet in Mexico
Voice+Data card SIM for Mexico
Flat rate mobile Internet packages are available. 1GB costs just 199 Pesos (£9.50) and is
activated through a quick text from your phone. Just make sure you have call balance available
on your Pay As You Go SIM card for Mexico
as the cost for the data package is deducted from the call balance.
The data package is valid for 30 days.
The Voice+Data SIM card can be used in a dongle, ipad/tablet, MIFI-router or used for tethering with laptop. Keep in mind however, that in order to activate the data bundle you will first need to insert the Mexican SIM card in a mobile phone to activate the data bundle.
Data SIM card for Mexico
The Data SIM card for Mexico is pre-loaded with 1GB data in 3G Speed and ready to use. No activation (or topping up) of the data plan is needed, so it's ideal to use in a dongle/router/tablet/iPad/modem. The data plan is valid for 30 days from your date of departure.
Regardless of which SIM you select, you can say goodbye to arbitrary per MB fees while traveling!
How long does 1GB data last?
This is a tough question to answer because it depends on how you use it, but for most of our customers, 1GB data is more than enough.
Typically 1GB data lasts for:
4000 emails (no attachments), plus 500 emails with attachments, plus 3000 web pages, plus 200 photos to social media sites, plus 250 hours of Google Navigation usage.
Calls between two travellers in Mexico using HolidayPhone
The rate for calls between two travellers using HolidayPhone equals that of local calls as stated above. If you are travelling in a party, we recommend that you order HolidayPhone for all travellers, so that you can make cheap calls between each other on your trip. To achieve this, just dial the local Mexican mobile phone number provided with the SIM.
Topping up call balance
Voice+Data card SIM for Mexico
The prepaid Mexico SIM card
contains no initial call balance for outgoing calls or internet usage.
We suggest that you add some initial outgoing call/Internet balance with your order so you are ready to go when you arrive to Mexico.
You can buy top-up vouchers together with your order of HolidayPhone. Top Up vouchers can also be bought in kiosks and supermarkets across Mexico, as the Mexican SIM cards we sell are from one of the leading operators in Mexico.
For each 200 Pesos top-up, you also receive a bonus of 100 free minutes of talk time within Mexico and to other HolidayPhone Mexican SIM cards.
The Mexico prepaid SIM card is valid 90 days from the last top up, so it can last forever as long as you top up at least once every 90 days.
Data SIM card for Mexico
The Data SIM card for Mexico does not need any topping up or call balance. It contains 1GB data pre-loaded, valid for 30 days from your date of departure.
Calling the UK from Mexico
When calling home using your HolidayPhone Mexico SIM card, just dial +44 without the leading zero of the area code. For example: 07511 223344 becomes +44 7511 223344.
Outgoing calls from Mexico are very expensive, even with a Mexican SIM card. We suggest that you ask the person that you wish to call, to call you back on your UK number that is routed through HolidayPhone. That way you pay no international fees, and the person calling you pay just as for a local call within the UK.
Receive calls in Mexico
You receive inbound calls dialled to your British mobile phone number just as usual as all calls are seamlessly forwarded from the UK to your Mexican prepaid SIM card without any international roaming charges.
A Mexican mobile phone number is included, that can be used when people within Mexico or travel companions using HolidayPhone, want to call you. There is no cost for receiving unlimited calls dialled directly to your Mexican number.
What if the call forwarding time runs out?
The HolidayPhone package includes 1 hour of free diverted calls from the UK, but you can easily add more forwarding time at a low cost when ordering your HolidayPhone package.
In case all your call forwarding time is consumed, the call forwarding feature will stop working, so you don't have to worry about us charging you any fees in arrears.
In comparision, it often costs £0.50-£3.00 per minute to receive calls roaming using a UK operator abroad, so by using HolidayPhone, you save £30-£180 for receiving 1 hour of calls on your British mobile phone number abroad.
Choose between Micro, Nano or Standard sized SIM
When ordering, you can choose to get a Micro, Nano or Standard sized SIM card.
- Standard size is used in most phones. - Micro SIM cards are used in iPhone 4/4S and a few newer phone models. - Nano SIM cards are so far only used by iPhone 5.
If you are unsure on what size you'll need, measure your current sim card.
No obligations. No hassle. Direct dial local SIMs.
All HolidayPhone SIM cards (regardless of destination) are direct dial local prepaid SIM cards meaning NO callback and much lower tariffs than using an "international SIM card".
There are no obligations, no contract and no subscription. We never charge any fees retrospectively.
If the destination country requires SIM card registration, we process the registration at the operator on your behalf ahead of your arrival, so you don't have to worry about it. All HolidayPhone SIM cards are ready to use when you arrive.
