    Another good reason to change service providers when our contract is up later on this year :)

    Future Canadian brides take note! You might not have cell service if you are with Bell and travelling to Mexico.

      I second that, movistar made me want to pull my hair out! The others worked as easily as if I were at home, not sure why.

            its weird i was able to text in the DR but when i was in Tulum MX for some reason texts werent going out but coming in. i think the hotels just decided to find a way to block my outgoings so that i had to call collect which ended up being about 80 dollars for 6 phone calls...

              I do have to say though, my phone was doing some funky stuff while I was down in MX..It would turn on & off, but none of the buttons except for the power button would work. Then the next day it would be fine. Then the day after that they wouldn't work again. I would charge it and it would lose it's charge within a couple of hours. A whole bunch of weird stuff that all went back to normal when I got home?!
