250 Mexico Area Codes -- Cell Phones

Calling a cell phone and Mexican area codes

My searchable Mexican city area code locator will let you search for more than 250 Mexican area codes (lada) by Mexican city, Mexican state or area code number. Area codes (lada) in Mexico changed years ago and now all Mexican area codes are 3 digits, except for Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey. Below are the clave lada for more than 200 Mexican cities. Phone numbers are 7 digits everywhere except those cities, where the phone number has 8 digits. Thus all phone number in Mexico are 10 digits, just expressed differently. Got it?

To dial another city in Mexico, put 01 before the number. If you're calling Mexico from your land line, you must not value your pesos. The Cellular Abroad phone company can rent you a cell phone for Mexico and the world, sell you a SIM card if you have an unlocked phone, or sell you an unlocked phone. Plus they are honest about what it will cost. Check them out (opens in a new window, so you can browse area codes at the same time).

BTW, you MAY get a discount if you use "Mexicomike" in your online order or if you call them at 800-287-5072. But that changes from time to time.

Calling a cell phone in Mexico

To dial a Mexican cell phone from outside Mexico, add a "1" before the number and after the 011-52 (the prefix for dialing Mexico from the USA). If a Mexican cell phone is 555 (city code) - 555-5555 (number), dial 01152-1-555-555-5555. Mexicans write phone numbers differently. They would write the phone number as 55-5-55-55555. To dial a Mexican cell phone in the same city, put 044 before the number. To dial a cell phone in another Mexican city, put 045 before the cell number.

I hope this list of Mexican area codes and instructions on dialing Mexican cell phones is useful. If you get a Vonage VOIP phone, you will save a ton of money, whether you are living in Mexico or just calling Mexican phone numbers.

To get area codes for anywhere else in Mexico, see the Telmex site.

A reader pointed to a Wikipedia page that arranges claves (area codes) by areas of the country. It is an interesting exercise and my hat is off to the person who compiled it.
