Overland Park, KS -- Sprint has added seven new countries to its growing list of CDMA roaming partners. Sprint customers visiting Jamaica, Peru, Venezuela, Taiwan, Thailand, Brazil and Saipan are now able to roam using their Sprint wireless phone. Sprint customers can use their CDMA-enabled Sprint PCS Phone in more countries than any other carrier. Those customers equipped with a digital dual-band phone can roam in more than 20 countries. Customers with a tri-mode phone can now roam in more than 40 countries with Sprint PCS International roaming. Additionally, Sprint customers roaming in Canada and the Dominican Republic will enjoy expanded coverage.
Sprint provides wireless coverage in more than 150 countries through partner roaming agreements and continues to expand coverage based on customer needs.
"The increasing number of countries jumping on the CDMA bandwagon is a testament to the increasing popularity of CDMA technology among wireless carriers," said Wes Coffindaffer, director - Intercarrier Services, Sprint. "Our business is about making it easier and more convenient for our customers to use their wireless phone when they're away from home. We'll continue to expand our international roaming portfolio to allow customers to feel as if they never left home."
There are a number of international roaming solutions available to Sprint customers, including using their Sprint PCS Phone, Sprint PCS International Phone or Sprint-provided GSM phone.
Prior to traveling outside the United States, Sprint encourages its customers to contact the Sprint PCS International Roaming Team to authorize the phone for international roaming. There is no charge for this authorization, and it could take up to 2 to 3 business days to go through on a customer's account.
