- Unlimited domestic voice calling
- 100 minutes to call mobile or landline numbers from the U.S. to eight Latin American countries, including Mexico – the ONLY wireless service with built-in International voice services to Latin American countries.
- Unlimited International texting from the U.S. to select Latin American countries and 200+ countries and destinations around the world – more than twice the countries provided by other carriers.
Univision Mobile will be offered in Walmart stores effective May 19 and will also be available for purchase in Univision-branded stores in Puerto Rico.
