ATLANTA, Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Cricket Wireless expands international service even further by offering calling to nine new countries from the U.S. and unlimited talk and text to and from the U.S. to Canada.

New International Add-Ons
Customers can now reach out to family and friends in Dominican Republic, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Jamaica, Haiti, or Nicaragua by adding the country of their choice to Cricket's Smart ($50) and Pro ($60) monthly plans.  For an additional $10 - $15 per month, the add-ons give consumers a range of mobile-to-mobile and landline calling minutes (depending on the country) plus unlimited text, picture, and video messaging (MMS)*.

Canada International Offer
Customers can also stay connected in – and between -- the U.S. and Canada with unlimited talk and text ** for one low monthly rate plan charge, all in, taxes and fees included.  This enhanced "roundtrip" feature will be automatically included in Cricket's Smart ($50) and Pro ($60) monthly plans with no additional charge or enrollment.   Primary usage must still be in the US.

Along with the new Canada roaming feature, Cricket's Smart and Pro plans will continue to offer Mexico roaming at no additional charge.  And, customers can enjoy unlimited text, picture and video messaging from the U.S. to Mexico or Canada as part of their Smart and Pro plans, all on Cricket's nationwide 4G LTE network.

These newly added countries combined with Cricket's other recent international offerings, such as Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, Singapore and Nigeria, give customers even more value – making Cricket the smart choice for savvy consumers.
