HOLLAND, Ohio, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Prepaid cell phone service provider Page Plus Cellular has announced an expanded service feature that will allow its customers traveling in other countries to continue to use their Page Plus cell phones. The countries being added include Mexico, Canada, and the island territories of Bermuda, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. While Page Plus customers already have the ability to place calls to these countries from the U.S., they will now be able to place and receive voice calls and text messages while within them.

The international roaming rate for calls within Mexico and Bermuda is $1.10 per minute, and calls within Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are $.60 per minute. Calls originating in the United States to Puerto Rico will remain at the current $.12 per minute, and U.S. calls to Mexico and Canada will remain at $.34 per minute.
