Being new to Mexico, I now realize one of the greatest expenses is calling the US. I first tried my cell phone with a telcel card. What a shock to see how quickly my 400 peso card was used up. I now use a larga distencia public phone with charges 6 pesos per minute. I read on the threads about Skype and Lada National but don't understand how they work or how to access them. Are there other services?
Can someone please explain, very simply!, what are the different ways to phone to US and the cost advantages and disadvantages of each and what I need to do to get the service. Thanks for the help, I'm going broke phoning my kids.
Does the Mexican goverment punish us Americas for phoning the US by having such high rates?
