Verizon Wireless introduces International CDMA roaming
Verizon Wireless' International CDMA Roaming allows customers traveling to Bermuda, Canada, China, Dominican Republic, Israel, Jamaica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Taiwan, New Zealand and Venezuela to make calls and receive calls with the same Verizon Wireless handset they carry in the United States. If you travel to Europe or countries where the GSM standard is prevelent, you can rent the Samsung SCH-A790 CDMA/GSM phone.
Verizon Wireless customers with a one- or two-year service agreement of $39.99 or higher will pay $0.69 per minute for the international CDMA roaming, plus the servicing carrier's long distance, toll, surcharges and taxes. International long distance charges apply for incoming calls and voicemail messages retrieval listened to while abroad.
While in Canada or the Dominican Republic, TXT Messages decrement from customers' home message bundles and are billed at domestic rates. Those rates are $0.10 to send and $0.02 to receive in Canada and $0.25 to send and $0.02 to receive in the Dominican Republic. These are the same rates when sending TXT Messages to these countries from the United States.
