Also Beecum can a guy buy prepaid phones that work fairly well down the peninsula for international calling? My ATT worked great but I'm on Verizon now which is no so bueno
I'd recommend a GSM phone and buy a telcel card when you get down there for local calls and some SHORT international calls.

with my sprint phone I get free google voice integration which I can use data to get voicemails and send and recieve texts.

for the duration you're going to be down there (if it's only a few days) use a telcel card, load it with 300 pesos (~25$) and you'll likely get 300 pesos "regalado." That's quite a bit of data for one week and you can do emails and such and texting if you have to INTL. V

voice calls, any way you do it, are cheap-ish, but can add up pretty quick.
