Toll free numbers in Mexico are only free within Mexico itself. International long distance charges apply when dialing a Mexican toll free number from the United States or canada on a cell phone or landline. There’s no guarantee that the person answering the international call will speak English. Most Mexican businesses that cater to people from the States offer us toll free numbers with English speaking business phone operators or other alternatives for business calls.
