Find answers to commonly asked questions about this update to messaging to +053 numbers.
T-Mobile postpaid customers can call landline and wireless phone numbers with a Cuba country code. If you have our Stateside International Talk feature ($15 per month per line) or if you have T-Mobile ONE Plus™ International, calls from the US to numbers with the country code +053 (Cuba) cost just $0.60 per minute. Without SIT or ONE Plus International, the rate is $3 per minute. Currently, T-Mobile customers on prepaid plans can't make calls to Cuba phone numbers.
We're continuing to work with the local carrier to understand options for supporting messaging in the future.
