    Hi all,

    What did you all do about contacting people while in Mexico?  Did you use a cell phone?

    thanks!

    I just had my wedding in Nov in Cancun.  If you have an iphone and you turn off the data you can ping WiFi if your resort has it and you can imessage other Iphone users. 

     

    Otherwise we used the app HeyTell and that worked off Wifi as well.

     

    We did not use the cellphone as it is like $2 a minute!  Our resort also had free calls to the US so that helped out too! :)

      I work for a cell phone company here in Canada... as long as your data roaming is turned off on your phone and your connected to the resorts wifi (as Shan0487 said) you will be able to use any of the data services on your phone (instant messaging, internet, email, social networking sites) Just make sure you turn off all data settings (the data charges can be crazy!), your cell company should be able to help you with which settings needs to be turned off but on iPhone its usually 2 settings... "data roaming" and "cell data"
