If no one replies with personal experience, just check Cingular's coverage map to get an idea of how thorough of coverage there is in Latin America.

U won't be using Cingular network when traveling abroad. U will be using the local carrier network and will be charge for roaming fee unless u get the unlimited international plan which is $20 more what u pay now.

pow pow - my company has a few different folks that travel to Mexico/Latin America fairly frequently and they've never had any issues - with their voice. Data coverage can be spotty but GSM is fairly consistent.
