Mexico dialing changes

Starting August 3, there are changes to telephone dialing in Mexico. You no longer have to use 01, 044 or 045 when making long distance calls or calling a mobile phone from a landline. If you are calling locally you now dial the area code, such as 998 for Cancun, and then the phone number. For example, if you are in Cancun and wish to call Royal Resorts instead of dialing seven numbers (881-0100), you now dial ten (998 881-0100).
