Sprint adds six more countries to its free international data roaming list
Sprint has added six more countries to its free international data roaming list. That now means that the carrier will allow users to receive free unlimited data up to 2G speeds, with unlimited text messages, in 22 countries. The price to make/take voice calls in those locations is 20 cents per minute. The carrier says that it will be adding more regions to the plan, soon.

The 22 countries included in the Sprint International Value Roaming plan include Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Russia, Sweden, South Korea, Spain and the United Kingdom. Qualified Sprint customers can add the Sprint International Value Roaming plan by visiting a Sprint store, or by going to www.sprint.com/internationalroaming.

If you want faster data speeds, you can sign up for a 1-day, 7-day or 14-day pass that will allow you to receive 3G data. The 1-day pass goes for $15 and allows you to receive 100MB of 3G data that must be used in a single day. $25 buys you 200MB of 3G data that must be consumed within 7-days. For $50, you can have 500MB of 3G data that must be used up in 14-days.

Sprint also allows those with the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 5s, Apple iPhone 5c and select Android models the opportunity to connect to one of the millions of Wi-Fi hotspots in Latin America, Europe, South America and Japan, and make calls to the U.S. for free using Wi-Fi Calling.

All that T-Mobile and Sprint are doing is giving people bad service for cheap price. All in life is the same "You get what you pay for". The service for T-Mobile is a joke. There's not one T-Mobile customer in our 6 buildings that can get reception in the buildings. All they get is 2g signal while the verizon phones get 4 bars of LTE. People are leaving Verizon for T-Mobile I'll give you that but they come back as soon as they see how bad the coverage is.
