illumy’s awesome for international calling

Some of the less-reputable/free VoIP services flood you—and the people you’re calling—with ads. illumy isn’t like that. We put people first, and people hate ads.
illumy offers calling to cell phone numbers and landlines in Mexico—as well as hundreds of international calling destinations.
When you upgrade to the i2 or i3 plan, you can choose a United States phone number and area code. And your new phone number is visible to the people you call.
No prepaid calling cards. No negotiating with your mobile or long-distance carrier. No unexpected charges for you or the people you call in Mexico. There are no extra steps required for you or your abuela (or anyone else you choose to call).
The country code for Mexico is +52. To call a phone number in Mexico from the U.S., you’ll dial 011 (the exit code), followed by 52 (the country code for Mexico), and then the local area code and phone number.

Not at all. illumy works anywhere that has internet or a data connection. Do note that the phone number you choose when you upgrade to an i2 or i3 plan will be a U.S. number.
Definitely! Unlike Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and similar apps, illumy never spies on you and never listens in—and we do NOT allow advertisers of any kind to do so, either.
Our team has deep experience in telecommunications. We’ve not only created an efficient app, but we’ve used our relationships with the very same providers that the major carriers use. So we get the same rates they do, but we don’t mark them up for massive profits.
It’s illumy! By leveraging deep relationships with the carriers’ carriers (the same carriers that your telco company uses for international calling), illumy can offer extremely inexpensive rates for calling Mexico or hundreds of other destinations around the world.
The math is simple. Say you want to call Mexico every month and talk for one hour. The i2 plan costs just $3, and then calling a landline for an hour costs $.60—less than a buck! Mobile numbers cost a wee bit more ($1.20 for an hour). Now, if you plan to call often and talk for a long time, the i3 plan costs just $9/month, and that plan includes UNLIMITED calling to Mexico—no per-minute fees!
What’s even less expensive than this? Free HD voice or video calling from one illumy member to the other. It’s 100% free and 100% ad-free. No gimmicks. No eavesdropping. No data gathering.
