I looked into the Verizon plan, but they did not have coverage in Panuco, Veracruz. I am now with AT&T Viva Mexico. $54.99 per month, 1000 night and weekend minutes, 450 roll over anytime minutes. I call to Mx with no long distance, hubby has not noticed any increase in his cell phone as opposed to me calling him with Skype. AT&T has signed with Telcel (i think that is the name), so they (AT&T) are saying they have great coverage. Now when i go to Mx in a few weeks, I will be able to call back NOB without roaming or long distance charges. In the fine print it says that i can not go over 40% of my roll over minutes in any consecutive 2 month period. I can add a phone for hubby, then the plan goes to $74 per month with more minutes for us to share. At present when hubby needs to call me from his cell phone, he calls my Monterrey Skype phone number which i forward to my home phone or cell phone. For emergencies, i also have a Trakphone, pay as you go. They have international calling with no long distance (you just use your minutes). It only works here NOB. But with Trackphone, you can have up to 3 Mx phone numbers. So hubby, with his cell phone can call one of my local Mx numbers and it rings on my trackphone. When visiting Mx i will forward my Mx skype number to my brother's phone, and also leave my trackphone with my mom, just in case AT&T coverage does not pan out like they said it would.
I hope this information is helpful for you.
