I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think magicjack is sold in Mexico. You can look on their website for rates.

A few years ago Fox at Cafe Roma had me bring him one from the US, I'm not positive but I think it is what he uses so customers can call home.

Go to Roma and have a cold one or three and I bet he'll tell you how to set it up.

I have the magic jack plus for a home phone and the cheaper magic jack I take travelling. works great - also have the magic jack app on the iphone and called from Mexico to Canada no problem - only problem is trying to call local Mexican numbers - for that you need to buy a $10 credit for long distance as magic jack free calling is only to Canada or the US

I was on the bus and a woman was telling everyone how wonderful it was to use for calls to Canada. She loved it.

I have a friend in Palm Springs though, that hates it and says it's terrible, so maybe works better in Mexico than US. It's pretty cheap, so can't hurt to try.

Ok, so can I use a magicjack plus to call the US from my hotel room..or will it only work if I have a condo, apt., and there is a direct phone line?

You need a good internet connection, that's all. The lady in Palm Springs probably had a slow internet connection.

I don't believe calling from Canada to Mexico would be free, but maybe cheaper than the regular phone.

My son can call me from Los Angeles for free because my MagicJack number is a Los Angeles number.

|We have used MagicJack for a few years here. We have an Alberta phone number and calls to here are free and also to Canada, US or Mexico. I like the MajicJack Plus because it can be plugged into a electrical outlet versus the laptop, which frees up the laptop to be moved about. But for the Plus you will need a physical internet connection not just wireless. If you only have wireless then the regular Magic Jack will work. It has been very good 90% of the time, sometimes the calls are a little crackly but overall well worth it.

I have Magic Jack from the US here in Mexico- it works great and should work anywhere but it is all about the internet connection.

My magic jack works great at the Grand Mayan where the wifi is pretty good.... I also use the magic jack App on my iphone when i am in a wifi area. I've used it in europe also with no problems.... if the wifi connection is poor, it wont perform as well.
