MetroPCS Adds Mexico Roaming



MetroPCS customers with GSM phones can now roam in Mexico. The new capability was added to Metro's existing $10 Mexico Calling plan which is available as a $10/month add-on to plans priced at $50 and higher. With the add-on, customers get:
  • 200 minutes for calling from their MetroPCS phone while in Mexico to mobile phones or landline phones in the United States or Mexico) 
  • 200 text messages from their MetroPCS phone while in Mexico to the United States or Mexico 
  • Unlimited inbound text messages on their MetroPCS phone while in Mexico
The roaming service uses Telef├│nica's Movistar network (coverage map)
As before, when the user is in the US, the $10 Mexico Calling plan provides:
  • Unlimited calling from the U.S. to landlines in Mexico
  • 1,000 mobile-to-mobile minutes from the U.S. to Mexico
  • Unlimited text messages from the U.S. to select destinations in Mexico
MetroPCS customers can add the $10 Mexico Calling plan using My Account online or by calling customer support at 1-888-863-8768.

  1. Do you know why metro isn't available in all states?

  2. I wonder why those idiots at T-Mobile don't include Canada on the same plan.

  3. Probably because Metro hasn't been able to cut an identical deal with any of the Canadian carriers without it being much more expensive. Despite T-Mobile ownership, Metro still has its own executive team, and this was likely done to push more Hispanic/Latino customers to Metro.

  4. Adding Mexico roaming (offered by no other prepaid service) has the potential to add many Mexican expats. There is no similar market in the US of people that want to be able to roam in Canada for free.

    1. Mexico roaming is a smart option for any carrier to offer. It's not unique to MetroPCS however, Telcel America's $60 plan includes 1000 roaming minutes and 1GB of roaming data in Mexico. PagePlus, Lyca and GoPhone roam in Mexico at per minute rates.

    1. You mean besides with MetroPCS? GoPhone and Telcel America have roaming in Mexico on some of their plans. Or if you have an unlocked GSM phone just buy a prepaid SIM from Telcel when you get to Mexico.

  6. Do I need a Telcel Sim card if I have a Samsung Metropcs phone while in Cancun?
