    Stateside International

    If you have one of the following–Simple Choice North America™ plan; Simple Choice™ plan; Simple Choice with No Credit Check plan; 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, if you have our previous Simple Choice plan, you can add Stateside International Talk, which gives you unlimited calls from the U.S. to landlines in more than 70 countries and destinations and discounted calling from the U.S. to landlines and mobile phones in more than 200 countries, all for $10/month more per line. Keep in mind, if you're on a Simple Choice with No Credit Check plan, you can only make calls to the 70+ countries.

     

    If you activated a Simple Choice North America plan on or after July 15, 2015, you also have the option to add Stateside International Talk for $10/month more per line. Just like the previous Simple Choice plan, you get unlimited calls to landlines in more than 70 countries and destinations and discounted calling to landlines and mobile phones in more than 200 countries. BUT, with Simple Choice North America, you can make these calls from the U.S., Mexico, and Canada!

     

    If you have our previous Simple Choice plan, for just $15/month more per line, you get unlimited calls from the U.S. to mobile numbers in more than 30 countries, 1000 mobile-to-mobile minutes to Mexico (calls rated on a per-minute basis; overage extra; $0.04/minute), as well as the unlimited calls from the U.S. to landlines in more than 70 countries and destinations and all other benefits of Stateside International Talk.

     

    If you activated a Simple Choice North America plan on or after July 15, 2015, for just $15/month more per line, you get unlimited calls from the U.S., Mexico, and Canada to mobile numbers in more than 30 countries, as well as the unlimited calls from the U.S., Mexico, and Canada to landlines in more than 70 countries and destinations and all other benefits of Stateside International Talk.

     

    If you're not on a Simple Choice North America plan or Simple Choice plan, find out more about adding Stateside International Talk services. Customers with a monthly Pay in Advance (Prepaid) plan of $40 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 (IDC) 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.

     

     

    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.
