T-Mobile Makes Calling Those Abroad Affordable & Worry-Free


For only $5 a month, you can add unlimited calling worldwide – one low price covers everyone on your account. 


Bellevue, Washington — November 19, 2014 — For anyone and everyone with family and friends abroad, T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) just gave you and yours the gift of connecting more easily and affordably this holiday season and for years to come.  The Un-carrier™ announced its updated Stateside International Talk plan, and starting today, everyone on your Simple Choice™ plan can enjoy unlimited calling from the U.S. to landlines in more than 70 countries worldwide for just $5 a month for the entire account.  That’s right.  Per account – not per line.  So, $5 a month covers your entire family up to 10 lines.


Or, starting today, for just $10 per month, the whole family can get unlimited calling to mobile phones in more than 30 countries and 1,000 minutes to mobile phones in Mexico, on top of unlimited calls to landlines in 70+ countries. That’s a real savings over the current rates ($10 and $15 per month per line for the landline and landline plus mobile calling respectively), especially for families.  In fact, a family of four can save $420 a year compared to paying per individual.


“The old-guard carriers never take a holiday from sticking it to their customers,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “These guys have the gall to gouge you with fat charges every time you reach out to family outside the U.S. — even during the holiday season. How is that anything but pure humbug and greed? At T-Mobile, you can talk day and night without ever worrying about extra charges or overages.”


This offer starts today and goes through the end of the year ? but once added to your account, everyone on your account with a Simple Choice plan can enjoy the benefits for as long as you keep Stateside International Talk on your account. And, of course, all of this comes right on top of your existing Simple Choice plan benefits, like unlimited texting from the U.S. to nearly every country abroad at absolutely no extra charge.
