“Today’s phones are designed to work around the world, but we’re forced to pay insanely inflated international connectivity fees to actually use them. You can’t leave the country without coming home to bill shock. So we’re making the world your network — at no extra cost.” – John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile US, Inc.
T-Mobile has officially pulled the curtain back on its third phase of the Uncarrier program. As we expected the new features include unlimited data plans that work in more than 100 countries around the world. But, as the headline already spoils, there’s more to the Phase 3 than this cool feature. T-Mobile customers will also enjoy unlimited texting in these so-called Simple Global countries.
Other details include flat-rate international calling at 20 cents/min for voice calls when roaming in the same countries as well as discounted calls and texts from the United States to the Simple Global markets.
- Unlimited data and texting worldwide: Starting October 31, Simple Choice individual and business customers automatically get unlimited data and texting in more than 100 Simple Global countries worldwide, and will only pay a global flat rate of 20 cents/min. for voice calls when roaming in the same countries. No activation or extra monthly fee necessary.
- Stateside International Talk & Text: Discounted calling and texting from the US to all Simple Global countries for $10/month. Includes 20 cents/min. for voice calls and unlimited texting to all Simple Global countries, as well as unlimited calling to landlines in over 70 of the Simple Global countries at no extra cost.
- Nationwide 4G LTE network: T-Mobile’s latest-generation 4G LTE network is now nationwide, reaching more than 200 million people in 233 metros across the U.S.
