Just this week, Sprint has revealed that it will be offering basic data and text messaging, absolutely free of charge, in 165 locations across the globe. On top of this, the major US wireless carrier is also offering voice calls at a price of $0.20 a minute. Moreover, its subscribers are also free to buy LTE high speed data directly from their mobile device, even without having to place a phone call to customer service support.
Many agree that traveling to other countries is fun -- well except when you have to deal with roaming charges (which can be often borderline exorbitant). But Tink Labs, a firm from Hong Kong, is offering a solution to this problem -- specifically by providing custom made handsets in hotel rooms around the world specially for travelers. These phones would then come with free data, which means that guests can make full use of them when going online, and yup, not worry about roaming fees.
For those who are traveling to other countries, going international with one’s smartphone or tablet device can be a bit of a hassle, especially for those who were not able to snag themselves a decent international roaming mobile plan. Indeed, for these users, they often have to rely mostly on Wi-Fi connections wherever and whenever they can find them, or else, swallow international roaming fees, which at times can reach seemingly exorbitant amounts.
FreedomPop already provides its customers with international calling, domestic voice calls and text messaging and data. Now, the American wireless carrier mainly known for offering free voice and data services is debuting a brand new worldwide roaming product at a special offer price. Its Global 3-in-1 SIM card is targeted at mobile users who travel around the world a lot, but want to do away with paying roaming charges if they can help it.
Sprint first offered its Open World feature back in August of last year, offering free voice calls, text messaging, and high speed data in countries such as Canada and Mexico, as well as specific locations in Latin America.
