Staying Connected While Traveling
This is a sponsored collaboration with Sprint. All words, thoughts, and ideas are ALL my own.
In October, I am heading to the Dominican Republic to tie the know with my media naranja. As my to do list gets longer to make sure I have everything ready for this big day, one thing I am not worried about is my cellphone plan! Sprint will be with me the entire time and providing me comfort knowing that I can connect with my family whenever I want!
We have all been there - traveled abroad to visit our family in Mexico, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, etc. and turn on our phones. Then you hear the dreaded dings that come in because you forgot to turn off your data. Shortly afterwards, you receive a text message from your provider saying you have already used 26MB of data and will be charged an additional $75 on your next bill. Your face turns red, you panic and realize that you should've left your phone on airplane mode the entire time because now you have to pay $75 for FB messages that you didn't even care about!
You can now avoid that dreaded moment by switching to Sprint and signing up for their new Open World program. Open World offers inexpensive international calling, texting, and high speed roaming plan. Exactly what I need when I need to keep my cellphone to my side and answer any all messages from my family who is traveling from all over the world to Punta Cana.
Sprint's new Open World program includes 1GB of free data while traveling to DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay.
I can't wait for them to add Venezuela to the list so I can take advantage of this service the next time I visit my family in Caracas and Margarita Island.
If you are traveling to other countries such as Italy, France, UK, Israel, South Korea, etc. You can still take advantage of Sprint Open World by leveraging their low price package which includes $.20/minute calls with free texting and data for only $30/GB. Which is fabulous and such a better deal than what other providers have shared with me in the past.
So don't lose money on staying in touch with your family - take advantage of Sprint's Open World program to stay connected at all times and at a great price.
