T-Mobile cell phone reception in Cancun?

Does anyone know how the reception is using T-Mobile in Cancun? They don't have the best signal in the states so I doubt it will be any better in Mexico.

If you plan on using your cell phone make sure you have roaming coverage for Mexico, charges can be very high!

We used it successfully in Puerto Morelos, so I'm sure it would be even better in the Cancun area. Definitely make sure you have the international plan activated.

Best way to have an affordable cell phone ($1 per call -not per min- to the US or Canada, incoming calls free) that you know will work in Cancun (or other cities in Mexico) is to get one from Mexitel Cellular (www.mexitel.net). They will send it to you in the US/Canada before you leave - or (in Cancun) you can have one delivered to you at your hotel.
