Shirt, shoes, but still no service in Mexico...


I am having trouble getting service in Puerto Vallarta on my Samsung S4. I am trying to send a text to Koodo to get a texting plan but I keep receiving a message that service is unavailable. Does anyone have any advice?

*611 will not work from abroad. You'll need to dial 00-1-647-788-4337 from another line to reach koodo from mexico.

Conflicting opinions about 611. Actually surprised to hear someone say it works. I know that there is an open backchannel with a local provider even if Koodo or whoever you're with has no local roaming agreement. After all, they have to know who you are to be able to say yes or no thanks. Your phone may show "no service" but you should be able to reach 911 provided you are in range of some signal. I was able to buy prepaid service days on Tracfone from Canada (where there is no roaming or service whatsoever) and they showed up on the phone within 30 seconds.
