Phone service in Ixtapa, Mexico

I have phone service in Ixtapa, Mexico? If not, would WhatsApp work?

Hi @melaniec.92wtkc

You will have talk, text and data over WiFi-only. Your phone will not be able to connect to cell service in Mexico with a Republic Wireless SIM, You would have the option to switch to a local SIM but you will need to pay that provider for service.

Here is a link to a very helpful guide, written by a fellow customer, for traveling internationally with a Republic Wireless phone:

The same is true of using WhatsApp. It will work using a Republic SIM over WiFi. If you want to connect to cell, you will need service from a local provider.
