There are RUMORS that T-MO USA will finally allow roaming. From HOFO anyway. SOON is the word with no more details.

Bet the rates are pretty bad, however -- they have to be worse than post-paid.

So you don't believe me....

OK, first the THREAD then the exact link from the thread. Again, I only said it was a rumor. There are several other threads.

Even a rumor bears some truth sometimes .... it would be a step in the direction if T-Mobile allowed roaming outside of the US.

Per HOFO today.... Roaming in Canada working on togo (prepaid).

Better than nothing. Sent the family up with a FIDO card last time, 2 years ago Thought I saw 50 cents / minute as the rate. Beats UM, doesn't it?

As I said, IF they expand to DE and EU countries, I cannot imagine they would offer lower rates than the postpaid ---- which is 99 cents / minute for most folks.

Not surrendering my Riiing and other SIM cards just yet.

I'm in Toronto and still can't get a T-Mobile ToGo card to register on Rogers... My T-Mobile postpaid SIM registers right away.

Did you look at the HOFO post? I think he had to call T-MO Customer Care to activate the roaming feature. This from memory; sorry, can't get there from here. Also, he may have been in BC. Canada is big and maybe it works only in BC.

Again, I only relayed info posted elsewhere and cannot verify.

Best wishes.

Stan

Here's what I got from T-Mobile:

Quote:
Dear Vlad,

Thank you for contacting T-Mobile.* We will be glad to explain the roaming for To Go
accounts.

We are currently in the testing phases for roaming and we do not have any estimates
when the updates are going to be done.* We would really appreciate your patience
while waiting for the testing to be finished.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please respond back to this email or
contact us at 1-800-937-8997 or 611 from your handset.* Please check out
http://support.t-mobile.com for more information about the features of your phone
and the detailed manuals.

Thank you for choosing T-Mobile and we appreciate your business.

Sincerely,

David D. 2745643
Technical Care Specialist

Regarding coverage in Canada, there's only one network, Rogers (302-72). If it works in BC it should work in ON as well.

Oh well... We'll have to wait a bit more...

FINALLY some substantial progress. T-MO has added some roaming to their prepaid coverage -- NC & SC, for instance, but also others. It's on their offcial prepaid coverage map. No international, however.

Glad to see TMO USA coverage has improved via roaming (East Tennessee was a big problem, now fixed), but being outside the US most of the time I'm annoyed they haven't enabled international prepaid roaming. About a year ago, two TMO operators told me "we're working on it" and "we'll be adding it soon" but nothing has happened. Seeing as how, at a minimum, adding roaming on the other national T-Mobile networks (Germany, UK, Czech, etc) would be very easy, I don't see what the wait is for; I'm sure they use the same billing software that everyone else does. And if the point were to cripple prepaid vs. pstpaid, why would they keep saying they plan to add international roaming?
