Cricket Wireless adds unlimited calling and messaging to Canada to $50 and $60 a month plans

Cricket Wireless is giving some of its customers access to unlimited calling and text, video and picture messaging to Canada at no extra cost. The no-contract subsidiary of AT&T will add this feature to subscribers of its $50 a month Smart and $60 a month Pro plans.

This move means that Cricket Wireless customers who are using either one of those plans now have unlimited calling and texting to both Canada and Mexico, which was announced in February.

Janna Ducich, chief marketing officer at Cricket Wireless, stated:

"Cricket is focused on giving consumers more of what they want and need More 4G LTE coverage nationwide than T-Mobile, Metro-PCS, Sprint or Boost. More than 35 million songs from Deezer, the world's largest streaming music catalog. More ways to pay for your phones thanks to our new Phone Payment Plans. And now, even more international calling options. We want to make it easy for our customers to call almost any number -- landline or mobile -- in Mexico and Canada -- whenever they want, and talk for as long as they want."

In addition to the unlimited calls and messages to Canada and Mexico, those plans still offer unlimited texts to 35 other countries.
