Default AT&T GoPhone roaming in Mexico - 22-10-2009, 14:20

Apparently AT&T quietly reduced roaming rates in Mexico for their prepaid GoPhone cards. The airtime rate is now US$0.25.

Now lets see if they offer this rate to contract subscribers. They just gave GoPhone users an unlimited talk plan that is $30 a month cheaper than contract subscribers.

Just remember that GoPhone has less coverage as there is no domestic roaming allowed, not to mention there is no decent data offering available.

I've used it in Mexico, and it charges $0.25/min., and furthermore, I tested it by not answering the phone, and it went to voicemail, but it still didn't charge like other providers do......And ATT does it in other countries.


11/10/2009 08:01:35 AM CST Roaming Outgoing Call -$ 0.25
11/09/2009 09:53:25 AM CST Roaming Incoming Call -$ 0.50
11/09/2009 10:19:54 AM CST Roaming Incoming Call $ 0.00
11/05/2009 08:34:19 AM CST Roaming Outgoing Call -$ 1.00

I just copied and pasted a few examples, where I did outgoing/incoming and I didn't answer....

This is great... Did you happen to place any calls to Canada or other countries?

No, Only called to USA. But that is an interesting question...You can still overwrite it by calling through a USA calling card......

Default Is that rate all-in? - 23-01-2010, 16:32

Thanks for the info about roaming in Mexico. I have called AT&T several times and they really don't know much about their own plans. I am going to Cancun in a few weeks and don't want to be without a phone. I want to order a prepaid GoPhone from AT&T because it appears to be the cheapest alternative. I am hoping the coverage is good.

Is the $0.25 / minute roaming fee while in Mexico the all-in price? Ie. Is airtime extra? If I call Canada while in Mexico, are there additional long-distance charges?

Yes, but if you sign up for a Google Voice account, you can call Canada for free via Google Voice. You can also use a number of really cheap calling cards to relay the call back to Canada.
