T-Mobile is un-leashing our reach beyond the nationwide map and going global with coverage in over 100 countries. T-Mobile now offers the largest global data coverage area included at no extra charge.
It’s simple, all you have to do is activate a qualifying Simple Choice plan with T-Mobile. No need to add a separate feature or service to your account or call Customer Care before you travel. International roaming with unlimited data and text is now included in qualifying plans at no extra charge.
Nothing – it is included in your rate plan monthly charge for all Simple Choice customers (excluding no credit plans).
No. Customers will have unlimited web speeds great for web browsing and e-mail, social networking and occasional use of certain features like GPS/maps. Some applications like streaming music or video will be more difficult than when on T-Mobile’s domestic network. However, higher-speed data passes will be available for purchase when you are abroad:
Users traveling to a country outside of Simple Global will incur text charges at $0.50 per text and data roaming charges at our standard World Class rates of $15/MB (plus taxes & fees). Voice charges vary by country. See specific country rates.
No. But with our Stateside International Talk & Text feature you can get unlimited calling to landlines and texting to many countries including Mexico, and even unlimited mobile to mobile calling to countries like Canada, China and India. Learn more about Stateside International Talk & Text here.
If you are on a Simple Choice plan that includes international roaming, calls and texts back to the U.S. while using our Wi-Fi calling feature are free and calls from any Simple Global country to any other country are $0.20/min (same as cellular). (Wi-Fi calls made from non-Simple Global countries to other countries are charged at World Class rates.)
Customers must have a device with a compatible frequency for the country they are traveling to for their device to function. Most recent smartphones are quad-band, and support frequencies in almost any country. To confirm your device’s compatibility, find your device and check the “Tech Specs” section under “Network” to see your device’s frequency bands. When you review the rates by country, you’ll see the frequency bands available in that county. If they match, your device will work.
Yes. Qualifying Simple Choice customers (new and existing with approved credit) – excluding pay-in-advance and Simple Choice no credit – are eligible.
Legacy customers are able to take advantage of the same international rates by migrating to an eligible rate plan. All legacy customers can migrate to New Classic plans without a migration fee.
Eligible Rate Plans include:
No. Pay-in-advance and Simple Choice no credit are excluded as a credit check is required to access this added benefit of our Simple Choice plan.
T-Mobile’s plan is intended for customers who live in the U.S. and are traveling outside of the U.S. for work or casual travel. Customers living or traveling abroad for extended durations (e.g., more than 5 weeks) would be better served with other international options, like local service, as the majority of your usage must be on T-Mobile’s U.S. network.
As long as the majority of your usage is on T-Mobile’s U.S. network, you will experience unlimited data and text. Service may be terminated for excessive roaming, misuse, or abnormal use.
It’s simple, all you have to do is activate a qualifying Simple Choice plan with T-Mobile. No need to add a separate feature or service to your account or call Customer Care before you travel. Unlimited international data and text are now included in qualifying plans at no extra charge.
If you have a qualifying Simple Choice plan but do not want your device to have international roaming in over 100 countries, you may call 611 from your T-Mobile device and block the feature on your account. Wi-Fi usage will not be blocked, however, and calls and texts over Wi-Fi may incur additional charges depending on where you’re calling or texting. If you would later like to remove this block, you may call the same number. Please note that only Primary Account Holders may remove the block.
At T-Mobile we don't charge overage fees. Once you have used all the high speed data allotted on your data option, your data speed will automatically convert to up to 2G web speeds for the remainder of your billing cycle. At the beginning of your next billing cycle youll be back to nationwide 4G data.
Its our mission to not be like all the other wireless carriers and one way were doing that is by not locking you into a restrictive 2-year service contract with the Simple Choice Plan. What that means is that its easier for you to change plans whenever you need to.

High-speed data allows Internet access at a high data rate or speed providing a smooth Internet connection for heavy data activities such as streaming media, watching video and online gaming. In some areas the activities you do may be transmitted on slower speeds and may reduce the quality of some of your heavy data activities.
