T-Mobile to offer unlimited calls, texts and LTE data in Canada and Mexico from July 15

Deutsche-Telekom owned T-Mobile on Thursday announced another Un-Carrier move in the form of a brand new service, called ‘Mobile Without Borders’ and available starting July 15 in select Canadian and Mexican markets.

This means that T-Mobile customers in the United States can travel to Mexico and Canada and make/receive calls, send texts, and use LTE without worrying about their phone bill skyrocketing due to international roaming charges. Additionally, customers will also be able to make calls to Canada and Mexico from their home state in the United States at no additional cost.

There’s just one caveat: ‘Mobile Without Borbers’ does not use 4G LTE data stored in your Data Stash. Also, Canadian and Mexican residents cannot use ‘Mobile Without Borbers’ as it’s only for T-Mobile’s Simple Choice customers who reside in the U.S. and are on T-Mobile’s network.

Beginning July 15, T-Mobile will automatically enroll new Simple Choice postpaid and prepaid customers in the new program. Existing Simple Choice customers can manually opt-in on T-Mobile’s website, by phone or at one of carrier-owned retail stores for free.

“After spending billions buying up Mexican telecoms, AT&T’s CEO is promising ‘the first seamless network covering Mexico and the U.S.,’ something ‘unique’ that ‘nobody else will be able to do for the consumer.’ So much for that. They won’t be the first. And they won’t offer Canada for free,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile.

“We’ve done this the Un-carrier way − reaching across borders, partnering with leading providers offering the best LTE networks, creating a simple solution right now − then not charging a penny more for it.”
