pre-paid cell phone

Going to be in Zihuatanejo at the end of October for 10 days. Want to be able to send and receive text messages. Is there a cheap pre-paid cell phone option that can be purchased in Zihua and what store can I do this at?

You aren't stepping off the face of the earth lol!

Call your provider and see what's up with your own phone.

Girlfriends IPhone and my ATT GoPhone work just fine.

Yes there is. Telcel has a 350 peso (around 25 USD) There are Telcel stores on almost every block in El Centro. In Mexico all charges go the the caller, calls are 5 pesos a minute and texts are 1 peso.

There are apps to send SMS by wi-fi and of course e-mail goes by wi-fi.
