  1. Are you telling me that its possible the product is already here or something? Anytime i bought a bought a product from amazon.mx or mercadolibre and the shipping was amazon shipping or dhl shipping from mercadolibre, its always been accurate. I know there is no way the product can get here this fast because the seller said it would take a lot longer etc.
  2. Hey yes i will answer the call when if they call again. I know for sure this isn't DHL though because when checking the tracking, it doesn't show that it has arrived here etc. I was told by the seller that once it goes by customs, it will show it on tracking. And yes when the product goes by customs, obviously I will answer the call since i know DHL will give me a call when they are here so i can come down and pick it up. But it was the seller told me there is nothing i need to do, just check the dhl tracking so thats why when i got these calls, i didnt think anything about it. Such as well its not DHL because it hasn't made it through customs yet. But then i just thought, could it be customs contacting me? So thats why i want to know if anyone here had a similar issue.

  4. Well they called a few times earlier and i didn't pick up because i thought its scam/telemarketer. Then i juist thought about it now such as could it be customs? Last time this happened with amazon my first time i ordered from amazon.mx but this product shipped from within mexico and it was from amazon.mx directly as oppose to 3rd party. I will pick up when that number calls again but i like to know if anyone had this experience when ordering a product that is shipped from the US.
  5. I posted this question in the customs subforum but I think it should be in this forum? If not, can mod move this to correct subforum? I purchased a product on amazon.mx, thinking the seller was shipping the product from inside mexico since i saw it had a mexican address for the business Its a cream that you can easily buy on amazon.com in the US and i bought it many times. The seller tells me the product is imported from the US... which surprised me because it was listed on amazon.mx. There are also no custom fees as there is no wording of importacion which made me thought okay product is coming from Mexico and not imported.. The seller tells me no import fees or anything like that. They told me they are taking care of the customs paperwork so once its in customs and goes by it, the product will be shipped to my product here in Mexico. I recently received a few phone calls to my telcel phone that seems to show + 001 234 56 as the number and coming from Mexico. I don't answer any unknown calls because they are usually scams and telemarketers. However, a while back when i bought from amazon.mx and the product was not from a 3rd party and from amazon.mx directly i got call and i didn't not reply because i figure it was scam/telemarketing. Then they send me text message amazon so i messaged back and called them and it was the person delivering the product from amazon.mx. So anytime i buy off amazon.mx and its from them directly, they always give me a call when they are here, then i pick up and go downstairs to pick up the item. Does anyone know if customs calls you on the phone if its a product that is imported? Like whether it gets in or not? The product is an OTC cream that you can easily get on amazon.com so there is no ingredients in there which is not allowed etc. The seller told me they taking care of the customs paperwork and i have nothing to do and just check the dhl tracking etc. Does anyone know if customs will give you a phone call if a product is being imported to you? Or only if there is an issue? I didn't pick it up few times already but now im thinking... maybe thats customs? But what if they don't call back? Would like to know from anyone that bought a product online from the US and had it imported to Mexico. Had I know the product was coming from the US, i wouldn't have bought it because i read stories of customs and packages etc.

  7. mudgirl... Well it says whatsapp is free and unlimited. So say you get the 1gb data plan thus the SL150 plan. If you use whatsapp to make video calls... which obviously uses a lot of data... does that count against the 1gb of data you have for the month? Or if you use facebook and do a lot of things on it which uses some data. Does that count against your data whether you have the 1gb or 3gb? I have used many of these plans before. But i dont want to intentionally use up 1gb of data fast just to find out if whatsapp does not count. Thus i could make a few video calls and use up 1gb easily if i wanted to. But would i still have data left or not? The wording is confusing because if they say whatsapp is included and unlimited along with facebook and twitter... i would think...so that doesn't count as my 1gb data. I dont think this is a confusing question at all.
  8. https://www.telcel.com/promociones/amigo/paquetes-internet-doble-de-megas So this double the data is only if you choose the internet option thus INT. Does this promo end soon or how long has it lasted? So if you choose SL150, do you only get 1gb of data or you get 50% bonus so 1.5gb? If you enter SL200, do you get 1.5gb or 2.25gb since they say 50% more? Whenever you over the data, you always get a message that you went over it right?
  9. I'm assuming if there is this plan... you cannot roam outside Mexico with it correct? I assume you can't add more credit to it if you plan to use it in the US? I assume you could add credit to it like Telcel but if you do any roaming, it eats up your balance? The other thing is could you get this plan if you are a tourist? I don't know why but i thought that might be another catch? Thus only residents can get this? Because 300 pesos paid every month for unlimited call to north america and data while in Mexico... that seems way too good to be true.
  10. Hey all got a question. I heard this from someone not that long ago who is also in Mexico and i want to know more about it. Someone tells me he has AT&T here and basically every month goes to walmart and pays 300 pesos for the monthly fee. He then says he gets unlimited everything... meaning unlimited call to anyone in North America. He also says he gets unlimited data as well. That seems way too good to be true. He says he activated it by going to the AT&T cellular area at walmart. Its not in chapala but another part of mexico where im located and he is as well as he said was in same city. Does anyone know about this plan? He also tells me he could tether it as well.. meaning use it as hotspot for a computer though. Then again, most companies do allow this. Does anyone know if there exist this plan? Seems way too good to be true because if you enter a 300 peso code with telcel, you get 2.5gb only.
  11. Okay so the Sin Limite is if you do lot of calling and texting. But this is with your telcel number though. So if you had a google voice number on your phone for example... i use this to call ppl in the us and send/receive text... then this isn't a big deal right? I almost never make phone calls from my cell phone number with telcel ever and almost never text message ever. Also you say ppl who call and text. Well don't you get unlimited whatsapp though? Because you can call people and message on whatsapp and all the data you use for whatsapp... its unlimited right since thats included and not related to the 1gb for the month? So basically if you are in mexico and do not call or text ppl with your telcel phone number... just go with the INT as oppose to SL right since you get much more data? If you are outside Mexico or plan to be outside of Mexico soon or if you call a lot and text from your telcel number... then use the SL code? What i dont understand is why do ppl call or text much with it ... assuming they have whatsapp? Now if whatsapp was not included... then i obviously understand what you want to use SL as oppose to INT. I know the INT is for ppl who want more data. But if you don't ever or rarely call or text from your telcel number... then shouldn't you might as well get the INT anyway? Also the bonus data they are giving you... does anyone know how long this has been going on? Is this promo going to end soon?
  12. Can someone here clafiry the difference between using code SL150 vs INT150? So basically with the SL, you could make phone calls and text messages to anyone in North America? You could also roam anywhere in North America? The INT basically gives you more data but you can't make calls or text messages to anyone in North America? And you cannot use it to roam in US or Canada?
  13. Can anyone here who use Telcel and use either INT or SL tell me if what i mention above is correct? The thing was back then i always used INT because i know it was for data. Then i found out about SL and then started using that instead. So instead of int100 i then used sl100. So if you have no use for your telcel number for calling someone or texting with that number and say you use whatsapp to call/text anyone in Mexico and use your US google voice number to call or text people in the US, then use the INT code instead since you get more data than the SL code? I could understand having the SL code is good because you can make calls with the telcel number and text but dont most people here use whatsapp for that and thus the calling and text unlimited is pretty much useless if you have a google voice number?
  14. Hi there i saw that picture you posted.' But is what i said about INT and SL correct? Thus with INT150, there is no free calling to North America and no text messages to North America? Its basically a lot more data than the SL plan? The SL150 is unlimited call and text to anyone in north america and you get data but you got much less? So with INT150, you get 28 days and get instead of 1.5gb, you get double or 3gb due to promotion? How long has this promo lasted and it will not last long right? So with SL150, you get 28 days of unlimited call and text to North America and get 1gb of data only? Or you get 1.5gb? There is in data promo for the SL plan? The other thing is with this plan, you can use it while roaming in US and Canada right but the INT plan, you can only use that while in Mexico? Thanks.
  15. Okay so you choose Int150, you get instead of 1.5gb of data, you get double or 3gb? SL150, you get instead of 1gb of data, you get 1.5gb or you only get 1gb of data? On the amigo plan it seems SL150 means you only get 1gb of data a month for 150 pesos?
