Dialing numbers in Mexico from within and outside Mexico

To dial numbers in Mexico from outside Mexico (from the USA or Canada) or in some cases while using a US or Canadian cell phone while traveling in Mexico, the following are handy codes to keep in mind. Below you will also find the codes for dialing Mexican home and cell phone numbers from within Mexico.

As of several years ago, the dialing codes to call cell phones in Mexico changed. Now, whoever calls, pays. So the receiver of the call, unless roaming outside his/her calling area, doesn’t pay for the minutes to receive a call. This meant that the caller dialing the call needed to dial differently in order to know he/she would be paying extra for that call.

Within Mexico

  • Dial 044 plus 10 digits if calling from a land line to a Mexican cell phone that is within your local calling area (same area code)
  • Dial 045 plus 10 digits if calling from a land line to a Mexican cell phone that is outside your local calling area
  • Nextel and some Iusacell phone numbers can be dialed as if it were a regular land line number so no need to dial the 044 or 045
  • Dial 7 digits or in some cities 8 digits to make a local call or to call local Nextel and some Iusacell cell phone numbers
  • Dial 01 plus 10 digits to dial a long distance land line phone number in Mexico
  • Dial 01 800 plus 7 digits to dial a Mexican toll free number
  • Dial 001 plus 10 digits to dial a US or Canada cell or land line
  • See our other post about dialing US or Canada toll free numbers from Mexico

To reach a Mexican phone number from the US or Canada

  • To call a land line, dial 011 52 and then 10 digits
  • To call a cell phone, dial 011 52 1 and then 10 digits (Nextel and some Iusacell numbers may not require the additional “1″ if they are land line type numbers)
  • To dial a Mexican toll free (01 800 number, Lada sin Costo), you can try dialing 011 52 800 plus 7 digits though we have had limited success with this
