Mexico Roaming Bonus Questions

Two questions about MRB:

 

1. We have two phones on Mobile Share Value plan with MRB. Do we get 1GB/month per phone while in Mexico? Or do we share 1GB?

 

2. Is there a limit to how long (i.e., consecutive weeks) we can use our phones in Mexico?

Re: Mexico Roaming Bonus Questions

Hey there @dbender49!

 

These are awesome questions! I will be more than happy to help out today!

 

With the Mexico Roaming Bonus, the 1GB of data was per line. There is not a limit to how long you can use this, however if you go over the 1GB, you will be charged an additional $20 for an extra 1GB.

 

I do recommend that you check out our support article regarding Mexico Roam! We actually offer the option for you to use your current plan in Mexico, if you are on a qualifying Mobile Share plan. This will allow you to the entirety of your data package there!

 

Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! Have a fantastic time in Mexico!

@dbender49

If you switch to New Roam Mexico, you can use all your shared data.

 

If believe it's if for 2 consecutive months that more then 50% of your data or calls or texts is used in Mexico, you may possibly be penalized.

Re: Mexico Roaming Bonus Questions

Thanks for your answer, Gary. But if I understand correctly from Demetria's answer, I can use my Mexico Roaming Bonus for the entire 5 months I'm in Mexico. With the new Roam Mexico plan, since ALL my usage will be in Mexico for much longer than 2 months, I could get cut off. I'll have to be careful with the 1 GB limit, but I think this seems safer.

Re: Mexico Roaming Bonus Questions

One more question, then. Is there any way to keep track of my data usage during the month, to see if I'm nearing the 1 GB limit? Either on the AT&T mobile app, or on att.com?

Re: Mexico Roaming Bonus Questions

I think I answered my own question here. On both the website and the mobile app, I found "International Data: 80 MB used, 944 MB left." This must be the Mexico Roaming Bonus data, and halfway through the first month I have no issues.

I'd reset the counter on the phone when you cross the border. Sometimes data reporting is delayed...

I think there are possible issues with the calls or texts too (if you have more than half in Mexico over 2 months). Check the description in your plan details.

 

I have NOT heard of them enforcing this for anyone yet...

As far as I know, it's as available as it was previously.

 

But WHICH plan do you have? It's not an option for all plans, and some newer plans have it built in.
