OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The new free Sprint Open WorldSM add-on offers customers free calls1 and texts to Canada and Mexico with calls starting at just a nickel to Latin America, the Dominican Republic and more than 180 other countries when added to a domestic service plan. For those who like to travel, it boasts free unlimited calls and texts when traveling in Canada, Mexico and more than a dozen Latin American countries2 without the annoyance of roaming charges.
Sprint Open World includes 1GB of free data3 while traveling in these Sprint Open World countries: Mexico, Canada, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay. The countries coming soon to Sprint Open World are Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
A full 1GB of free data means Sprint customers can send hundreds of photos to friends and family while traveling and can download plenty of songs without ridiculous international data charges. Sprint customers needing more than 1GB of data pay just $30 per GB, based on actual usage. If you use less, you will be charged less.
“We’re opening up the world and breaking down borders so more Sprint customers can stay in touch with the people who are important to them,” said Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure. “Sprint is making it easier for our customers to connect without roaming charges or excessive fees for calls or texts.”
