    I just bought an UNLOCKED iPhone 4S from the Apple store. I will be traveling to Mexico in a week. Anyone knows how I can get a Mexican SIMs card IN the US? I was hoping to buy one here in the States and when I arrive in Mexico the phone will be ready to use in with a Mexican phone number, Data package and minutes. Or anyone else has other suggestions, comments, tips, etc. etc.? Thanks all, greatly appreciate your help.

    Not that I'm aware of. You can pick up a prepaid SIM card at carrier store after you arrive. That's what I would do.

    I asked few Mexicans I worked with and they suggested this. I don't know if it helps. The article is pretty old.

    As far as buying them here, not that they know of. They all go back to Mexico frequently.

    Europa, is your phone unlocked? Do you remember which provider you buy your SIMs card from? I know the main one is Telcel.

    I have an unlocked iPhone, but I haven't been to Mexico since the 90s so I'm not sure which carrier to go with for a prepaid SIM. I can ask a friend at work on Monday, though. She goes to Mexico every few months and might know.
