When I bought my cheapest-of-the-line TelCel phone, the guy at the counter put the SIM card in the phone as part of the set up.  Works fine, have had it 9 years.  After the initial pesos in the phone have been used, go to any OXXO to buy more and have them loaded in the phone.  Or buy the scratch off card and load the pesos when convenient for you.  They have an expiration date, so the timing can be important.
Because the pesos have an expiration date, based on when loaded into the phone, don’t load up more than you can use.
When you go to the TelCel office in Guaymas, ask the person at the door for an English speaking sales person if you need English.  Several of the young sales people speak English very well.
Good luck and have fun!
