CANADA-DIRECT  (The best way to call Canada)

INTRODUCTION

Before the introduction of the Canada-Direct telephone service from Teleglobe & Bell Canada, calling home from Mexico was a foreign experience.  You are now able to call hassle-free using a Calling Card provided for free by your provincial telephone company.  Your calls are billed to your calling card at Canadian long distance rates, which are significantly more economical than Mexican rates.  If you are a member of a provincial long distance saving plan, those discounts are available on applicable Canada-Direct calls to Canada

ACCESS NUMBERS

Canada-Direct toll-free access numbers in Mexico are 01.800.123.0200, 01.800.021.1994 or 91.1.800.01.994.  These numbers connect you to a Canada-Direct operator or computer, who will connect you to your desired number in Canada.  Use LADATEL (Silver booths with LADA 91 written on the sides) or TEL-MEX public phones if possible. Public pay phones usually require coins or local pre-paid phone cards.  (a peso+ per minute).

PROCEDURE

After you dial one of the above access numbers, enter your Calling Card number and pass code.  You can place up to ten calls in a row without hanging up - just press # (pound sign) after each call and follow the voice prompts.  Another method is to direct dial the following number sequence.  891.248 + number on Calling Card + pass code.

CALLING CARDS

If you do not already have one, you must apply for a calling card with your provincial telephone provider a few months in advance of your trip.  Cards are provided free of charge.  You are only charged long distance fees when using them.  Test that your card  works before you leave home by calling a friend or relative long distance from a pay phone.
