  1. Cell phones in Mexico Chapter 2. For those of you who missed Chapter 1, all US cell phones have contracts with the three providers in Baja: TelCel, Telefonica and ATT Mexico. The US cell providers contract tower time with those three Mexican companies. Now back to Chapter 2. Your reception in Los Barriles or anywhere in the world is dependent on your proximity and line of sight to the Cell Towers. In LB, those towers are located in the huge palm tree downtown, the tower at La Curva and one on the road from LB to San Bartolo. Some companies sell range extenders that require an externally mounted antenna and a signal amplifier. It’s been my experience they do little to improve reception. Another factor that affects reception is the quality of the phone and the number of radio frequencies installed. Most midlevel to premium phones will work well in LB. There are a couple of cell phone apps that may help as well. I have used Skype for years on my cell phone with great success. Skype even works well with DSL internet. Another option is the Talkatone App. With Talkatone you use WiFi for calls and texts. That would include internet access from the internet and mobile data. Cost is about $5 per month. You do get a phone number that will allow calls in and out with texting. Talkatone can be used with an Ipad as well as a phone. Remember if the person on the other end can’t hear you, it’s a problem with your upstream bandwidth, common with a DSL connection (TelMex). thecomputerguy@usa.com
