Will be in Europe for a month and would like to know the best way and plans MTS has to offer ? Not overly interested in Data plans as I'll use WiFi hotspots for that. Just want to know how minutes and text messages are billed

Good Morning.

We have 3 plans for text messaging and the price is dependant upon the plan your phone has. If you are on the new Build Your Own Plan they are $5 for 50 texts, $15 for 150 texts or $20 for unlimited text messaging for 30 days. On an older plan that isn't build your own it would be $7 for 50, $15 for 150 or $30 for unlimited.

For international voice on a wireless device we have an add on for $20 which will rate your roaming at $1 per minute instead of the standard $2 per minute while in Europe. The per minute cost of roaming while abroad depends where you are and I have provided a link below which will show you the per minute pricing based on where you are travelling.

I hope this helps answer your questions.
