Cricket Wireless, the prepaid subsidiary of AT&T, is adding a new feature to customers on its $50 per month Smart and $60 per month Pro plans. Starting now, customers on those plans will be able to make unlimited calls and send unlimited messages to friends and family in Canada and Mexico at no additional cost.
This feature was actually announced back in February of this year, but it’s nice to see it finally rolling out to customers. In a press release, Janna Ducich, chief marketing officer at Cricket Wireless, had this to say:
“Cricket is focused on giving consumers more of what they want and need More 4G LTE coverage nationwide than T-Mobile, Metro-PCS, Sprint or Boost. More than 35 million songs from Deezer, the world’s largest streaming music catalog. More ways to pay for your phones thanks to our new Phone Payment Plans. And now, even more international calling options. We want to make it easy for our customers to call almost any number — landline or mobile — in Mexico and Canada — whenever they want, and talk for as long as they want.”
Users of these plans, besides now also getting unlimited communication with Canada and Mexico, also get unlimited text messages in 35 other countries. So if you’re looking for a cheap way to be on AT&T’s network and communicate a lot with people in Canada or Mexico, Cricket Wireless might be for you.
