How To Turn on International Roaming On Cricket Wireless

Are you using Cricket Wireless service on your phone and planning to travel abroad?

Cricket Wireless is an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) operated by AT&T popular for its low-cost plans and reliable network coverage.

However, many users face issues with international roaming on Cricket Wireless as the roaming only covers Mexico and Canada under their international roaming plans.

If you are travelling to countries other than Mexico and Canada then you have to get a long-distance roaming option to continue using the service.

This article will discuss what are the long-distance international options on Cricket Wireless and how to turn on international roaming on Cricket Wireless.

What Are The Long Distance Options of Cricket Wireless?

Cricket Wireless offers Cricket International and Cricket International Extra as long-distance options for international roaming which is applicable in more than 30 countries.

You can use these options to call landlines or mobile numbers and even send picture and video messages.

Both Cricket International and Cricket International Extra are available as features that you need to add before travelling and are billed on a recurring monthly basis when added as a monthly feature.

You can add this feature on the first day of your monthly billing cycle for a full month’s use. If you add the Cricket International feature as a one-time feature then it will be available until the end of the month plan cycle.
