MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate Mexico's Dia de la Constitucion, textPlus--the mobile app that does everything your carrier does at a fraction of the cost--will be offering free calling to landlines and mobile numbers in Mexico on February 5th (from 12:01 am PST to 11:59 pm PST). Service is available to iOS or Android textPlus users.
Marked by festivals, parades and family gatherings, Dia de la Constitucion commemorates the signing of the Mexican Constitution on February 5th, 1917.
"Holidays are a time for family and friends to reconnect," said Scott Lahman, Founder and CEO of textPlus. "We hope the gift of free calling will make it easier for those unable to travel for Constitution Day to celebrate with the people they love."
After seven years of revolution, the modern Mexican constitution promised the restoration of lands to native peoples, the separation of church and state and dramatic economic and educational reforms. It was signed by an elected constitutional convention and remains the constitution in use in Mexico today.
