International Long Distance Calling and Messaging Features

Hola, Bonjour, Hello! In any language, Cricket International and Cricket International Extra help you keep in touch with friends and family all over the world.

Please Note:

Cricket plans starting at $50/mo (including the grandfathered Smart, Pro, and Advanced plans) already include:
  • Unlimited international text messaging (SMS only) from the U.S. to 38 countries
  • Unlimited calling and unlimited text, picture, and video messaging (SMS & MMS) to and from landlines and mobile phones in Mexico, Canada*, and the U.S., plus high-speed data access while traveling in Mexico or Canada. (Speeds reduced when you use up your plan's high-speed allowance. Primary use must occur in the U.S. Calls, texts, and data usage while in Mexico and/or Canada cannot exceed 50% of the total usage.) View important details.

*Calls and messages from the U.S. to the Northern Territories of Canada not included.

We also offer two great international features that allow you to call landline or mobile numbers and even add picture and video messaging:

Add one of these features to your plan (must be $50/mo or more) as a monthly recurring feature - you can cancel at any time. If you have an account with multiple lines, you'll need to add international features to each line separately.

Please Note: If you added Cricket International or Cricket International Extra before August 23, 2015, then you have a grandfathered version of the feature on your line. This means the list of countries will also include Colombia and the Dominican Republic (landline calls and SMS/MMS only; no mobile-to-mobile minutes). You can keep this feature as long as you don't change your plan. 

Only want one country, or need more minutes to a specific country?

When to Add International Long Distance Features

  • Add Cricket international features on your Cricket Pay Before Date to experience a full month of usage.
  • Cricket international features are available from the day you add them until you cancel the feature or reach the end of your current monthly plan cycle.
  • You can have only one international feature per line per billing cycle. If you decide to switch to a different international feature, you'll need to remove your current feature before you can add another one.
  • Cricket International is included in Cricket International Extra, so there's no need to have more than one at a time. If you decide to switch to a different international feature, you'll need to remove your current feature before you can add another one.
