Go to Settings > Carrier & turn off Automatic carrier selection. Choose AT&T or similar US carrier from the list that populates. That will keep your phone on that carrier. Switch back to Automatic if you are travelling away from the Mexico border, or upon your return to Canada (might want to add a calendar reminder on your phone).

With carrier manually chosen as AT&T, you may still have some MX service in close border proximity such as Algodones, but it will be provided under your US roaming package.

@ Chris, I see that you also called in about the Welcome to Mexico SMS. Could I ask if you posted here first, or called first, than you posted your question.
