What’s the difference between the pia state side and state side? So confusing!!!


    I have the simply prepaid plan and am going to travel overseas soon. Which one plan I should pick? T-Mobile has to differentiate their plans names much better than this now! All the names are so simila. Very confusing and annoying!


    pia North American state side int. T&T with mobile or stateside international talk with T-Mobile?

        The two plan add-ons you are referencing are for when you are in the US and making calls or sending text messages to an international number. The difference between the two being that the first is for calling to Canada and Mexico (landlines and mobile lines) and the second is expanded international calling to ~70 countries for landlines and ~30 countries for mobile lines (including text messages).


        If you're traveling internationally, you will need to load money onto your account and reference the prepaid roaming rates here: https://www.t-mobile.com/pdfs/IntlCallingRates (keep in mind prepaid international roaming doesn't include data).


        Depending on to who and how much you will be calling/texting on your trip, your best bet may be to ensure your phone is carrier unlocked before you leave and to purchase a prepaid SIM card once you get to the country you are visiting.
