TMobile Mobile Without BordersT-Mobile has announced a new "Un-carrier" move called "Mobile Without Borders" that enables customers with Simple Choice postpaid and prepaid plans to send and receive unlimited phone calls, text messages and use 4G LTE data in Canada and Mexico at no additional cost. The extended three-country plan will be available starting July 15 in select Canadian and Mexican markets.

T-Mobile customers with Simple Choice plans will be able to make unlimited calls to and from the United States to any number, including landlines and mobile phones, in Mexico and Canada, alongside unlimited text messaging and the full monthly allotment of 4G LTE data they would normally have in the U.S. at no extra charge. Music Freedom is included while roaming in Canada or Mexico.


Canadian and Mexican residents looking to take advantage of this T-Mobile promotion are out of luck, as Simple Choice customers must reside in the U.S. and primary usage must occur on T-Mobile's network in the U.S. The carrier also warns that Simple Choice plans are not intended for extended international usage. Data Stash will be available for use while in Canada or Mexico later this year.

Coverage in Canada includes Banff National Park, Bay of Fundy, Brampton, Burnaby, Calgary, Edmonton, Gatineau, Halifax, Hamilton, Kitchener, Laval, London, Longueuil, Markham, Mississauga, Montreal, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Quebec City, Regina, Richmond, Saskatoon, St Johns, Surrey, Toronto, Vancouver, Vaughan, Victoria, Whistler, Windsor and Winnipeg. Coverage in Mexico includes 117 markets.

Mobile Without Borders T-Mobile Chart
Starting next Wednesday, customers that sign up for a new Simple Choice postpaid or prepaid plan will automatically be enrolled in the Mobile Without Borders program. Existing Simple Choice customers can opt-in online, by phone or at a T-Mobile store for free. T-Mobile customers on promotional or legacy plans can add Mobile Without Borders for $10 per month. Mobile Without Borders business plans are also available.

Love this company for what it's doing to shake up the wireless industry. I've dealt with getting hit with roaming charges in the past, and it's not pretty, and it's cumbersome to have to call up to guess and gauge when how much you'll have to use before you even get there.

This is pretty incredible. Going to Canada and Mexico with no roaming? Plus LTE usage? How is it that Verizon and AT&T don't do something similar.

Do something like this in Europe and they will really get something going. This is a great deal for anyone in the US near a border town.

This is a pretty good deal. My mom goes to Mexico every now and then and she could use this.

If T-Mo's coverage would improve (2G doesn't count as data coverage in my book in 2015, Mr. Legere), I would consider switching from Verizon. In fact, my VZW contract ends today. Sadly, if I were to leave Verizon, the only real viable option I see is AT&T; and the only reasons I would consider jumping to AT&T are the one-month rollover data and the fact that my family would get a 24% discount on data with AT&T as opposed to the paltry 6% discount we get with Verizon. Decisions, decisions.
