Which cell phone provider do you have? Have you checked with them to see if they have Mexico plans?

I have Verizon and call the US all the time, which is why I have it. My plan was the NorthAmerican which Verizon did away with but if your plan permits you to call Mexico you can also call the US with no problem.

Not sure how the Mexico calling plan affects cell phones from here, but, on a regular phone, you cannot call most US toll free numbers. They don't have their lines set up to do that.

I don't have a cell phone, but, thought I'd throw that out there for others who do........

I think there is an added 01 or 10 in the dialing sequence. I know it is not 800 but 880. Tried verizon and they called and patched me thru to get cancellation done but could not direct me on calling out on my own. What a deal! I think i hear the blender starting!

I think you would dial it 01-1-800-???-????. That or toll free numbers are free on Skype and Bobsled.
