Celebrating Day of the Dead: Affordable International Calls to Mexico

By Dennis Peng|Tuesday October 23, 2018

On Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, you might be celebrating with family and friends to honor your loved ones who have passed. It’s a joyous celebration with costumes, bright colors, flowers, and Catrina parades, as you present many offerings to the deceased. This celebration of departed souls might also prompt you to want to connect with your loved ones who are still living.

Even if your family and friends are living in Mexico, Ooma can help you connect with them by using our easy, affordable, and high-quality phone service.

Affordable International Calls to Mexico

For Ooma Basic customers or anyone with an Ooma Telo device, the calling rate to Mexico is only 2.9 cents per minute. Keep in mind that calls with Basic service inside the U.S. and Canada are free, and you only pay the required taxes and fees, which are minimal.

A subscription to the Ooma Premier service costs a low $9.99 per month, and in addition to the advanced calling features, such as spam blocking and voicemail monitoring, subscribers get free international calls to Mexico.

Unlimited Global Access with Ooma International Phone Plans

Many Ooma customers who regularly call a variety of international locations choose to upgrade to one of Ooma’s two international phone plans, both of which include unlimited calls to Mexico.

The Ooma World Plan costs just $9.99 for the first 12 months and includes unlimited minutes to landlines in over 60 countries and to mobile phones in over 10 countries.

The Ooma World Plus Plan offers the widest global access with unlimited calling to landlines in over 70 countries and mobile phones in over 40 countries for $25.99 per month.

Calling Mexico with Ooma’s Free Calling App

Did you know that you can access Ooma’s affordable international calling rates from wherever you are?

Using Ooma’s free calling app, the international calling service that you have at home is available right from your mobile device. Now, that’s something to celebrate!

So, if the traditions of the Day of the Dead make you want to connect with family and friends in Mexico, you don’t need to go far. Using Ooma’s free calling app to make an international call to Mexico means that you can have those conversations no matter where you are.

Additionally, while Basic customers can use the app to make international calls to Mexico at a low rate, Premier customers have the advantage of being able to both make and receive unlimited calls to and from Mexico as part of their service.

How to Stay Connected While Traveling to Mexico

Are you planning a trip south of the border? Your Ooma app will keep you connected while you’re traveling.

When in Mexico, you can use the app to access the same high-quality phone service you have when you’re in the U.S. Additionally, your number will stay the same wherever you are, so your friends and family won’t need to remember your travel dates. Keep in mind that Ooma’s calling app does use the internet, so connect to Wi-Fi to avoid international cellular data charges while traveling abroad.

So, if this Día de los Muertos has you celebrating with pan de muerto, sugar skulls, and anecdotes about those who have died, Ooma can make Mexico seem closer with affordable international phone service.
