Can I receive incoming call during a stay in Mexico


Hello, I'll be traveling in Mexico for 10 days, and I need to be reachable through my phone. Will it be possible? I have a prepaid plan (the 15$, with a 10$ voice add-on). Thanks for your help

Unfortunately, prepaid does not work outside of Canada https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/koodo-en/attachment/1_inline.bmp

As Dennis said, unfortunately there is no roaming available for prepaid accounts. If you have an iOS or Android smartphone and have access to WiFi during your stay in Mexico, I recommend you take a look at: http://www.fongo.com/ It's free to use to call almost any Canadian number (and you choose a Canadian number as well, where people can reach you no matter where you are and they pay to call that Canadian number so it's either a local call or a Canadian long distance call for them, depending on their location). It's $2/month to send and receive texts from that number. I use this service all the time when travelling abroad.
