" I mention it because Net10 is owned by Carlos Slim, and might have a similar deal in Mexico."

To clarify, neither Net10 nor Tracfone (both owned by American Movil) provide service in Mexico. Net10 does have an "International Neighbors" plan which provides a nice free service allowing calls from WITHIN Mexico (and Cananda) TO your Net10 cellphone IN the US. It allows one to register up to 3 phone numbers in Mexico (friends/family) from which international calls can be made to your cellphone..... free of any international call fees.

"Magic Jack now has an iPad app"

I didn't know that! The app is written by the Magicjack folks themselves. Works on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

HOWEVER... in reading about it there are some technical problems (of which MagicJack is aware but has not/can not fix yet) having to do with not being able to remove the app from one's iPad.

For the service to be really effective and to be assigned a realistic phone number, one must actually get an account with MagicJack (or already have one) which does currently cost $20/yr.
