Your cell phone "saldo" (balance) always has an expiration date of 60 days. However, when you re-charge your air time, your expired saldo comes back. Telcel Amigo cards are sold in many places. Buy in 100-peso increments to add to your Telcel number. At the time you add the new quantity of air time, your cell will tell you exactly when your new saldo (balance) expires. By adding only 30 pesos at a time, anything less than 100 pesos does NOT give you the full 60-day expiration date. If you have more air time on your phone than you need, you can always give to anyone who has Telcel service. Send up to 100 pesos at a time, as many times as you like. Send a text message like this: telephone number: 33134567890 100 (phone asks what # to send to? TYPE: 7373 and hit send) STEP ONE: Enter the cell of the person you are gifting air time, space, quantity. For example: 33134567890 100. Your "saldo" air time balance is only lost for ever if you fail to put 100 pesos or more on the phone within each 60 day period. Your expiry date will be 60 days from the date of the deposit. Telcel will text message you offering double the time that day for deposits of 100 pesos or more - that's usually when I top up, providing that offer date is somewhat close to the end of my 60 day period. MY WALMART USA PHONE by TMOBILE sells a MEXICO chip to insert. There is a WALMART in Chapala to purchase a SIM CHIP which allows me to be connected at $1.25 per minute according to TMOBILE. CHEAPER to BUY a prepaid Mexican SIM to use within Mexico to call within Mexico. TELCEL: Services Emergency Calls Dialing 112. 365 days a year, 24 hrs a day. Bilingual Assistance (English / Spanish).
