AT&T Mexico has a great deal. I visited there a few weeks ago and pick up a plan for my US unlock cell phone. It works great. In fact phone calls are better than the Sprint I had. Some of the benefits:
*Unlimited phone calls and SMS in and to the US, Mexico and Canada.
*It is prepaid, if you don't like it just stop paying and it will go away.
*4G AT&T data
*Possibility of doing international roaming, if you add more funds
*They accept US credit card to pay 
*The only info they need from you is your name and e-mail
*Social networks don't count as data (Twitter, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp)
*Customer support is free from the US

Here are the plans, with google translate: Translate 
***Prices are in Pesos, the peso is getting hammered at the moment is reaching 21 per 1 US. So divide the price by 21 to get the US price.

Looks great, do I have to be in Mexico to get this or can I get it online and have SIM mailed to my US address?
Can I get/port a US number or is a Mexico number only?

rated:
Good question...I got it myself at one of the ATT dealers. It would be a matter of calling them and asking if they can ship it.
The phone number is a number from Mexico but I notice something interesting, I also had a FreedomPop phone that I unlocked. I put the card on it and it would call using my FreedomPop number.
I know of a company that travelled down there and put all their employees on these plans. The manager said that it would save them a bunch of money...

Isn't there a difference between 4G data and LTE?

Any information on hotspots? These are allowed on AT&T Go Phone plans, here in US.

rated:
any of these available in AZ @ Mexican stores??

rated:
I asked about hotspots I was told that I could use it, there is no restriction. In my phone it shows as 4G...I am looking at the moment for an unlocked hotspot to trying it out...

this will be Handy for all the Americans crossing illegally into Mexico...

rated:
whatsapp can be used for free video calling etc.

Do any of the other free data apps have ways to call out to reg. phones?

rated:
Yes, Whatsapp has video calling and it is for free. You can dial any number for free and without limit to the US, Canada or Mexico and free roaming to those areas, that is the way the plan is. You don't need any special app. I tried it in a couple of unlocked cell phones it works great.

rated:
I'll have to follow this topic. To see where it goes. Perhaps we can just by a sim an activate it through the AT&T Mexico site.

Does google voice work with the Mexico number? If so, that would work great!

$800 for 6 months - how does it amount to $6.xx per month? Math is way way way off.

Google voice does work, that is the way I send messages to people.

rated:
800 Pesos/21= 38 or ask Google type "800 pesos to USD"

I am going to try Skype Number you can receive calls to a US number and it will get routed to your cell phone. I will test this later on: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12055/can-my-friend-call-me-o...

Will AT&T Mexico port our US numbers?
How will that work?

rated:
No, it does not port US numbers but in theory you can install something like FreedomPop and port your number there...

rated:
I would be up for trying this.
Anyone know how to get them to send the sim to a US address (and activate here)?

rated:
Has anyone in the US been able to successfully order a Mexican SIM with service?

Any developments?
