Go to Walmart and buy a new ATT cellphone that is prepaid for 650 pesos. Get it unlocked

Or look on craigslist and find a unlocked cellphone cheap that takes a Sims Card, people will sell old cellphones on Craigslist cheap.....

I got a cheap ATT GoPhone then bought an unlock code off of EBay for 2 or 3 bucks. I only use it for incoming texts too and it works fine :thumbs:
