    Don't know about there, but in case it is of use to others, I have taken it to Nuevo Laredo and it still was on Sprint's network. When I went further in to the interior to Monterrey, it was roaming and worked but no PCS Vision even though as I understand it there is a Sprint in Monterrey!

    Yes it does and it does work very well (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel). Big benefit is that the Treo does not support analog roaming and therefore you connect to a digital roaming network (my old samsung phone kept on using the crappy analog network, because that was preferred over the digital one in the PRL setup). Data is not available of course and voicemail icon does not work correctly...

    Get ready for a hefty phone bill though...

    Yes, I think you are looking at $1.49/min, markyoung4. The best option is a GSM phone with a Cingular/ATT World Connect plan (9 cents per minute US -> Mex, 69 cents Mex -> US and Mex -> Mex). But you are going on vacation for a short time, so manage your time closely. You can run up a very large bill in a very short period of time. GSM is by far dominant in Mexico.
