My sister and I are going to be traveling to Mexico fairly soon. I know that Republic does not work on cell towers in Mexico and that we can still use our phones on WiFi, but I would like to know if anyone has found any option for making brief international calls? I’d just like to be prepared for any emergency situations. Thanks!
It’s possible to rent a phone that would work in Mexico. Information on that and more here: International Travel with a Republic Phone.
With the phone you have, on wifi, you can call the US/Canada while there. If you want to be able to call local Mexican numbers you’ll have to use an app like Skype, Hangouts or Rebtel. They’ll also only work while on wifi.
