Calling and cell phones:

Ok, calling in Mexico is complicated. Here is what I have learned in those 5 years of living here. If you are calling from one Mexican state to the other you need to dial: 01 + state code + number. The code for Mexico City is 55. If you call within the same state you just dial the number (8 digits).


Each state has a different code and that is true for cell phones too!!! So if you buy your SIM card in Mexico City, your cell will have a code of 55. If you buy it in other state, it will be different.

Buying SIM card is no problem. There are many providers, among the most known Telcel or Movistar. You can buy a new SIM card, already including some basic credit, for 100 to 150 pesos.


Mexico 's country code is +52.
