Sprint Launches International Free Calling, Texting, Mobile Internet Plan

Sprint is giving customers the ability to travel to major areas in Latin America, Europe and Japan and roam with up to 2G speeds to read emails and surf the web at no additional charge, as part of its new International Value Roaming feature.

When on the plan, customers also can send unlimited text messages for no extra charge and they can call anywhere in the world from these countries for 20 cents per minute.

Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Russia, South Korea, Spain and the United Kingdom are countries included in the plan.

Customers can easily add International Value Roaming to any Sprint domestic plan atwww.sprint.com/internationalroaming or by visiting a Sprint store.

Customers also can use Sprint’s “Wi-Fi Calling” feature to make free calls from over 200 countries back to the United States.

Wi-Fi Calling is available at no additional charge when calling a United States,  U.S. Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico phone number.

Wi-Fi Calling is available on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s and select Android devices.

Some will say the new Sprint feature is a reaction to T-Mobile US, which recently added no extra charge no extra charge calling, texting and Internet access in 2013.  

One might argue this is another instance where T-Mobile US and Sprint are attacking the market with additional value, while AT&T and Verizon try and maintain either a premium position (higher price, better quality) or at least an industry-standard (about what you’d expect in terms of price and value) position.
