Not only wireless 4G, but also instant national and international push-to-talk capabilities for its users. Recently, Sprint announced a new plan for its customers, in quick response to its rival T-Mobile, and it allows the users to send unlimited free text messages in roaming. The new plan doesn’t count for voice calls and is available for only a limited number of countries. The phone calls are charged at the rate of $0.20 per minute and is quite a competing plan for its rival T-Mobile.

Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO said,

“The continuous feedback from our customers indicates how important it is to travel without the fear of high roaming charges,” “So, we launched free data roaming and Wi-Fi. “Latin America, Europe and Japan are only the beginning. We will continuously add new countries to ensure our customers can use their device virtually wherever they travel.”

Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Russia, South Korea, Spain, and the UK. But Sprint provides only speed limit of 64kbps whereas T-Mobile offers speed up to 128kbps.

In the meanwhile, Sprint comes up with international speed data roaming passes for a limited period of time. You can get 100MB of data for $15 with a time span of 1 day and 7 day pass with 200MB for $25. Both the carriers are trying hard to attract their customers with decent plans and planning to go ahead of upcoming Google’s mobile carrier.
