How to Dial the US with Your iPhone While inside Mexico (When you have Crickett Wireless or AT&T U.S. Service)
It was diffiuclt to figure out how to make voice calls to the US (I've called my bank and our office several times). After struggling mightily with this concept, I have created a short guide for you.
Here is a general phone dialing guide for you that should work throughout Mexico, and has worked for us throughout Baja California and all of Cabo:
To Dial Mexican Numbers with your U.S. iPhone:
Local Numbers: Calling a local number in Mexico is easy. To call any local land line, just dial the local number with the area code. You don't have to put any special numbers in front of it. EXAMPLE: for example, when I call the local Costco in Cabo San Lucas (WHILE I am in CABO), from my US iPhone, I dial like this: (See Pics)
To Dial a U.S. number from your Cellphone while you are in Mexico
U.S. Numbers: Now, let's say you want to dial back to the U.S. with your iPhone while you are inside Mexico. That's easy, too. So, let's say I want to contact my local Wells Fargo Branch, while I am on vacation in Mexico. Here is the full Wells Fargo Number for my local branch, and the second picture shows how I dial to get a connection (see pics).
I hope this step-by-step dialing guide is useful for you when you are in Mexico, and enjoy your travels!
