sprint_travel_without_data_roaming_fees

Sprint has launched aggressive promotions and incentives for customers on their network in recent months. The latest one takes an idea used first by T-Mobile, a company that Sprint was exploring as an acquisition candidate. Starting today, Sprint customers can take advantage of International Value Roaming. Customers get unlimited international data and texting while visiting Latin America, Europe, and Japan; however, connection speeds are “up to” 2G speeds. While 2G speeds are slow, it should work fine for checking emails and other small tasks. International calls, however, are not free and cost twenty cents per minute.

Sprint covering all costs for you to become a customer

Switching carriers is a costly decision for consumers. Between all of the fees and charges, hundreds of dollars can be spent. That is why taking advantage of a carrier’s offer to pay some of those fees is so valuable. Some carriers will handle a new customer’s early termination fee from their previous carrier but not much else beyond that. Sprint wants to really help those choosing to switch by covering both early termination fees and installment plan payments. Simply take an existing number and device to Sprint along with the final bill and the carrier will cover the costs. Sprint then hands over the credit in the form of an American Express Reward Card.
