Telcel is the most commonly used cel phone service in Mexico mostly because of it's coverage for both cel and WiFi Internet services.  Iusacell has very competitive rates but coverage is about half of what Telcel offers
 

 
  Dialing to a Cell Phone from a Land Line in Mexico
The call must be preceded by a three digit number, either 044, or 045, then the cell phone’s area code and finally the cell phone’s own eight-digit number:

Within your area code
Dial 044 when you are calling a cell phone containing the same area code where the land-line is based. You will pay the ‘in-area cell phone’ rate per minute and the cell phone will receive the call at no additional charge.  

Outside your area code
Dial 045 when you are calling a cell phone with a different area code to where the land-line is based. You will pay the ‘out of area cell phone’ rate per minute and the cell phone will receive the call at no additional cost.
 

 
  Dialing to a Cell Phone from a Cell Phone in Mexico
If you are calling a cell phone from a cell phone inside Mexico, you ignore the 044/045 codes and simply dial the other cell phone’s area code and the number.
