Mexico Phone Number / VoIP FAQ's

What is a Mexican virtual phone number?

A Mexican virtual phone number is a telephone number that is associated with Mexico's dialing code but can be used to receive calls from anywhere in the world. This service is particularly beneficial for businesses and individuals who want to establish a local presence in Mexico without physically being there. For a monthly fee of $4.95 USD, you can have a Mexico-based number that forwards calls to your current location, regardless of where that might be. This service is not only cost-effective but also offers the convenience of maintaining a single, consistent contact number while operating globally.

A Mexican virtual phone number allows you to establish a local presence in Mexico, even if you're physically located elsewhere. This is particularly beneficial for businesses operating in cities like Mexico City or Guadalajara. You can forward calls from your Mexican FlyNumber to any regular phone number worldwide, or use VoIP for unlimited incoming minutes. More details can be found on our call forwarding page and VoIP information page.

Our optional virtual phone system includes a feature called time-based routing.

This can be particularly useful for managing incoming calls according to your business hours in Mexico.

Can I set up an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system with my Mexican FlyNumber?

SIP forwarding allows you to direct calls from your Mexican FlyNumber to any SIP address (URI/host). This means you can use one of our "easy setup" VoIP providers to receive calls. There are no additional charges for receiving calls this way - it's included in the $2.95 fee and offers unlimited incoming minutes. You can learn more about this on our VoIP information page.

Can I keep my existing Mexican number if I switch to FlyNumber?

Technical info on Mexico phone numbers

  • Mexican phone numbers follow a standardized format and numbering plan regulated by the Federal Telecommunications Institute (Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones, or IFT).
  • Country code: Mexico's country code is +52. To call a Mexican phone number from outside the country, you need to dial the international access code (e.g., 011 from the United States and Canada) followed by the country code (52).
  • Numbering plan: The current numbering plan in Mexico is based on the ITU E.164 international numbering standard. As of August 3, 2019, Mexico has transitioned to a uniform 10-digit numbering format for both landline and mobile numbers.
  • Number format: Mexican phone numbers are typically written as follows: +52 (AAA) NNN-NNNN, where:
  • +52 represents the country code for Mexico
  • AAA represents the 3-digit area code (formerly known as the long-distance code)
  • NNN-NNNN represents the 7-digit local number
  • Area codes: Mexico has approximately 370 area codes, which are assigned based on geographic location. Major cities and metropolitan areas have shorter area codes, while smaller cities and rural areas have longer ones. For instance, Mexico City has the area code 55, while Oaxaca has the area code 951.
  • Mobile numbers: Mobile numbers in Mexico also follow the 10-digit format. Previously, mobile numbers had an additional "1" after the country code (e.g., +52 1 AAA NNN-NNNN), but this was removed during the 2019 numbering plan update. As a result, there is no longer a distinction between mobile and landline numbers in the numbering format.
  • Special numbers: Mexico also has special numbers for emergency services, information services, and other non-geographic services
  • Emergency numbers: 911 (Contact us directly to add emergency services to your mexico FlyNumber, additional fees apply)
  • Toll-free numbers: 800 or 888, followed by a 7-digit number (e.g., 800-NNN-NNNN)
  • Premium-rate numbers: 900, followed by a 7-digit number (e.g., 900-NNN-NNNN)


  • Wasn't the internet supposed to make phone calls more affordable?
  • FlyNumber works great if you just launched a start-up and you're on a shoestring budget
  • Is your business already off the ground but you'd rather not spend hundreds of dollars a month on phone service?
