T-Mobile to introduce 'International Talk & Text' plan

T-Mobile to introduce 'International Talk & Text' plan
T-Mobile will introduce their new International Talk & Text plan on December 8th, allowing you to call landlines and text mobile numbers in 56 countries without long distance charges. The plan is only available to their on-contract subscribers with plans of $49.99 or more, and excludes international voice calls to mobile phones.

The basic $10 plan includes international calling and unlimited international (but not domestic) texting. There is also a $25 plan, which adds unlimited messaging in the U.S. In between those options is the $15 plan, which offers international calls and texts to Puerto Rico only. T-Mobile will also extend discounted long distance rates to countries not on the list.

The International Talk & Text option is also available on family plans, but you will have to pay the same amount per each international line. Sorry, no group discount. Phone cards are great, but this plan will be more suited to those who frequently call abroad.

We're not complaining, but we think there should be an option for prepaid subscribers as well, even if it costs a little more. T-Mobile obviously needs the international plan to be contract-only if they're going to get people to jump on T-Mobile's bandwagon.

Odd. When i lived in puerto rico, i used sprint and was never charged any sort of premium fee for calling puerto rican numbers from my american sprint number. I wonder if any of the other carriers react the same.

everyone has international plans. no MAJOR CARRIER has ever had an international plan that was flat rate. and noone cares about Metro..lol. BTW, phone arena, u should keep ur ibot opinions out of the news stories about which carriers "need contracts to get customers". In a month or 2 there is going to be a mass exodus from the over priced and under delivering evil empire of ATT as VZW and others get the iphone.. the only reason ATT is as big as it is. It is WORSE than Tmobile in coverage and u get to pay 40% more for the privledge.

Ofcourse Phonearena is late at posting stuff... Metro PCS has International plans for years so T-Mobile is not the first here.Before posting something maybe you need to do your homework .

PA didn't say T-Mobile was the first, the title suggests that it is a new feature for subscribers on the network. If you're going to be hyper-technical at least find out what "introducing" means...my god. And MetroPCS? Who cares about them anyway?

that could be huge for a lot of people. I think the other carriers may need to follow suit on this one to keep up
