Bigger things are coming for Boost Mobile subscribers! Information from a Boost Mobile Dealer Communication channel has leaked online as the carrier announced their new Mexico Roaming plan add-on.

Starting January 26th, Boost Mobile plans will now work in the US and in Mexico! Boost is hosting a limited time period for their users to add $5 to their monthly plan so they can enjoy getting in touch with their family and friends in Canada and Mexico. The inclusions of the $5 add-on are:

  • Unlimited talk and text TO and FROM Mexico while in the US or Mexico (mobile and landlines)
  • Up to 8GB of data while traveling to Mexico
  • Unlimited calling to Canada (mobile and landlines, excluding Northern Territory)
  • Unlimited International Text Worldwide
There are some things you should know about the add-on before you decide on it.

  • The $5 Todo Plus Mexico is available only to customers under the Growing Data and Boost Unlimited monthly plan. Other monthly plans and daily plans other than these are not eligible for the add-on.
  • The add-on is available until April 5 but customers can remain on the $5 Todo Plus Mexico Roaming as long as they don't change their plan or do a device swap requiring a plan change on a plan no longer eligible
  • 2G/3G data speeds provided while roaming. Mexican roaming is on Telefonica and is only available on Android and iPhone devices that are GSM capable. 
  • Once the add-on is added while the customer is in the US, the device will automatically update with the required positioning to enable voice, text and data roaming in Mexico.
  •  If the customer is in Mexico at the time of add-on activation over Wi-Fi via My Account, the service will be added to the customer's account and they need to stay on Wi-Fi connection to access the device updates needed for enabling voice, text and data roaming in Mexico.

With eligible monthly plans, the data included for the add-on now becomes:

  • $35 2GB with Growing Data ($5 Discount with Auto Re-Boost) - 1.5GB data while in Mexico
  • $45 5GB with Growing Data ($5 Discount with Auto Re-Boost) - 2.5GB data while in Mexico
  • $60 Boost Unlimited ($5 Discount with Auto Re-Boost) - 8GB data while in Mexico
To clarify, this add-on is not a one-time payment thing. The $5 Todo Plus Mexico add-on is a recurring charge that will be added onto your monthly recurring charge (MRC). If you are interested in getting this service, make sure to speak with a Boost Mobile retail partner. The $5 price for the Todo Mexico Plus Add-On is only guaranteed for customers who start the add-on by July 6, 2016. After that the price may go up.

  1. MetroPCS gives you both Canada and Mexico for $5.00. Also Metro gives you unlimited high speed data with that offering if on the 60.00 unlimited plan. I figured Sprint would at least TRY to be competitive. Their days of innovation stopped after they became the first carrier to offer unlimited talk and text for only 50.00 through Boost.

  2. Everybody else has Canada and Mexico, but Boost thinks all their customers are Mexican. Very disappointed with the so-called "group" plans. Metro is practically post-paid compared to these offers. They still won't bundle taxes and fees. Sprint is not in the position to act like their network deserves a premium price.

    1. The vast majority of their customers are Latino. ALL of their media advertising is in Spanish only.

  3. Also Cricket has free Canada and Mexico roaming, it gives you voice, text, and data depend on your plan. I am really worried if Sprint acquire T-Mobile..

    1. Actually, if anything, its T-Mobile that will acquire Sprint, and not the other way around, Sprint is drowning in debt,basically on life support from SoftBank, and I don't think they will be independent for long. At best they will merge with a Cable operator, T-Mobile, or the worst scenario, end up in Bankruptcy and be chopped up between Red, Blue and Magenta.

  4. How does it work? There are no sprint towers, no CDMA service to roam on in Mexico.

    1. Actually Lusacell (owned by AT&T) operates a rather sparse CDMA network in Mexico.

      However Boost's roaming uses Telefonica's GSM network and is only available on Android and iPhone devices that are GSM capable.

    2. Coverage is GSM by Movistar(Telefonica) and there about 10 phones model that boost is selling that are compatible with international roaming, most of the new releases within the last 4 months.

  5. after the 12 month unlocked. Do boost sprint phones have the necessary GSM LTE bands to be usable on AT&T t-mobile in the US?

    1. Most don't but a few do in including the iPhone 6 and later. For other models check the specs on PhoneScoop to see if they support AT&T's bands:
      LTE 2, 4, 5, (17 or 12)
      WCDMA 2, 5
      GSM 850, 1900

    1. Sandra, I did travel yesterday to Mexico and my cell did not work too. I just make a three way calling with a friend in the USA and boostmobile and everything work now, call, text and internet. I spend one hour and a half, but thanks God, I have phone now. I made a three way calling because I could not make a 1800 call from Mexico, so my friend call to boost and then call to me.
