'AT&T Roam North America' for Mexico and Canada (maybe) is coming May 20th, 2016
So the new feature is "AT&T Roam North America" (linked to AT&T News), it's for unlimited calls & texts and the data uses your data bucket.
- 15GB Mobile Share Value Plans and up gets this for Mexico.
- Unlimited Plan gets Mexico AND Canada.
- Business Plans only gets Mexico (see below for which plans).
This plan starts on Friday, May 20, 2016.
Assuming the link above is correct, the press is totally going to be messing this up, because it's kind of confusing they way they wrote it. I've read it multiple times to make sure I'm not.
Looks like it's the Mexico Roaming Bonus or the retention Canada Roaming bonus but without a 1GB data restriction (phones or tablets). I wonder if they'll keep giving those out to other accounts? Basically they're giving the Mexico Roaming Bonus to any Mobile Share Value plan right now, right?
Be sure to check: It looks as if it might be automatic added for 15GB plans and up but Unlimited Plans needs to manually add it? Make sure you check later.
Business: Looks like business plans only get Mexico but it also comes with business Mobile Select plans priced $20 per month or higher.
WARNING: If talk, text or data usage in Mexico and/or Canada exceeds 50% for two consecutive billing cycles, AT&T may remove roaming feature.
The linked article also has three URLs at the bottom (just before the footnotes), the two Mexico related addresses don't work (one errors and the other just redirects to the business page).
If anyone sees any mistakes or things I can clarify (without making it super complicated, like the linked story), let me know and I will update this post.
