Tips

Know what charges will apply when travelling internationally

Last Updated: Nov 16, 2013

Voice:

When traveling internationally with your Sprint service all calls are billed the same rate for the country in which you are traveling. Whether receiving a call, calling a local number, calling back to the United States, or calling to another country, calls are billed the rate for the country where the service is utilized. All calls are billed per minute and rounded up to the next minute.

Data:

While traveling internationally all data access is billed per kilobyte and rounded up to the next kilobyte. Whether browsing the web, accessing email, or device updates accessing data service, all use is billed per kilobyte. To prevent inadvertent data roaming charges set your data roaming guard to alert you prior to connecting or turn off data roaming if you do not want to access data services.

Texting:

Texts are billed per message. When sending a text to multiple recipients each message is billed separately; if five numbers are entered in the “To” field then you will be billed for five texts sent. When roaming internationally texts delivered to your device are billed the received text rate for the country in which you are traveling. Some of Sprint’s roaming partners do not provide texts received.
