Sprint Debuts 'Open World' Canada and Mexico Calling Plan
Sprint today made it easier to call family and friends in Canada, Mexico, and other countries through its new Open World program. Sprint customers who enroll in Open World can call or text numbers in Canada and Mexico at no extra charge. Moreover, Open World offers free unlimited calling and texting, and 1GB of roaming data to Sprint customers who travel to Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Paraguay. Sprint will charge customers who exceed the 1GB of free roaming data at the rate of $30 per extra 1GB, and may cancel service of those who roam excessively. Customers will need to have an international-capable handset to take advantage of the roaming services. Sprint permits roaming in countries other than those listed in the Open World program, but it charges $30 per 1GB of data and $0.20 per voice minute. Open World is a limited-time promotion, but Sprint didn't provide an end date. It can be added to Sprint plans for free. Interested customers will need to sign up online, in person in stores, or via the phone. Open World is similar to recent offerings from T-Moble and other carriers.
