Stateside calling & texting services

    Learn about our stateside calling and texting services. We can help you call and text abroad with ease.



    Stateside International

    If you have one of the following – Simple Choice™ Plan; Simple Choice Plan with No Credit Check; or a Pay in Advance (prepaid) plan – then you already have the Stateside International Text feature. This feature allows you to send and receive unlimited text messages to ANY country in the world where texting is available (except St. Helena and Wallis & Futuna).


    To expand on that, you can add Stateside International, which gives you unlimited calls to landlines in more than 70 countries and discounted calling to landlines and mobile phones in more than 200 countries, all for $10/month per line. Keep in mind, if you're on a Simple Choice Plan with No Credit Check, you can only make calls to the 70+ countries.


    For just $15/month per line, you get unlimited calls to mobile numbers in more than 30 countries, 1000 mobile-to-mobile minutes to Mexico, as well as the unlimited calls to landlines in more than 70 countries and all other Stateside International benefits.


    If you're not on a Simple Choice Plan, find out more about adding Stateside International services. Customers with a monthly Pay in Advance plan of $50 and higher can also add this service. For more information, see Additional services and international rates.

    International Discounted Calling

    As of February 11, 2015, the International Discounted Calling feature is no longer available to be added to an account. If you currently have the IDC feature, you can continue to enjoy a discount on the per-minute rate over international dialing rates. This discounted rate applies only to outgoing calls placed from the U.S. to foreign mobile or landline phones.


    The International Discounted Calling service costs $7 per month per line. You can view the rates to mobile phones and landlines in more than 200 countries.


    The Primary Account Holder can remove this service on My T-Mobile. Because it's no longer available to be added to an account, if you decide to remove International Discounted Calling, you won't be able to add it back on.



    Pay-per-use international calling

    Pay-per-use international calling allows you to make international calls from your phone. View rates by country.



    T-Mobile blocks calls to 700, +800 (international toll free), 900, and 976 numbers. T-Mobile may also block calls to certain countries to help prevent potential fraud. This information relates to customers using T-Mobile's network. T-Mobile cannot guarantee features will function while roaming on another partner's network.
