Cricket Communications, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leap Wireless, today announced the introduction of local global calling numbers that allow for unlimited international calling.
The Global Local Number product allows Cricket customers to set up a local number in more than 40 different countries, including the U.S. and Mexico. When friends and family in an international location call this in-country local number, they are charged for a local call, and the call rings through to the Cricket customer’s phone.
The product is available for $5 per month for a local number in Mexico and $10 per month for local numbers in one of more than 40 additional countries.
Cricket also announced two new international rate plans, a Mexico rate plan and a global rate plan. Both plans include unlimited local talk and U.S. long distance, domestic and global messaging and mobile web. The Mexico rate plan, available for $55 per month, also includes a Mexico local number, 500 minutes of use per month for calls to a Mexican landline phone and 30 minutes of use per month for calls to a Mexico mobile phone.
The global rate plan, available for $65 per month, also features a global local number, 500 minutes of use per month to call an international landline number and 30 minutes of use per month to an international mobile phone.
In addition, with the new unlimited global messaging feature, Cricket customers can send unlimited text, picture and video messages to customers here in the United States or globally.
