    Oh, that's not good. I would be upset if they didn't keep me informed. Especially if it launched without me being able to study it.

    Are you for real? It was texted to my phones. I think more people down here call Mexico than people up there call Canada...

    That's great. I look forward to seeing more information regarding this. This is great for people who have friends or family in other countries because they don't need to pay international long distance on their end. I had the same problem with unlimited international text messaging. I could text them, but they had to pay more to text me. If this would including text messaging too, it would change that.

    None of my phones got the text and not a peep from my rep about it yet. At least now I can say I have seen the text. Thanks Chris.

    That's not bad at all. If it's still $10 for unlimited international calling it will be $15 for both which isn't bad, especially if you have family or friends in another country.

    Thank you!

    Hey Guys just got an email about the GPN! the pricing is different then what i had imagined.
    The $5 price applies to two things 1) Under Smartphone Plan 2) Gives you a Mexico Local #
    $10 if you want to choose select country out of 40
    Remember, they will only hand you one feature number per phone
    The list of countries is not as broad as I had hoped
    Not all cities in a specific country may be available

    Do you know how much it is going to be for a regular feature phone plan? You said it's $5/month for Mexico on a smartphone plan. What about the $35 or $45 plan?

    This is now available.

    There is now a $55 and $65 feature phone plan.

    I don't see anything for smartphones yet, but it might be available as an add-on.

    Thank you, 113CassJoliet!

    Global and MEXICO local number
    Overview


    Local Number (LN) is an exciting new feature from Cricket launching October 30th, 2011, which allows Cricket customers to purchase a local number from another country and route these calls to their Cricket phone. This feature helps eliminate outgoing international long distance charges from callers outside of the United States, meaning our customers can stay in touch with their friends and family back home without spending a lot of money.
    • US/Mexico Local Number -$5/month
    • Global Local Number -$10/month
      nice..

    Restrictions and details:
    • All Cricket Wireless plans may add the LN feature
    • LN is not available for Cricket PAYGo customers
    • One Local Number can be activated per Cricket MDN
    • LN can be added in all Wireless distribution channels
    Before adding the feature to a customer’s account, visit www.mycricket.com/localnumber to verify the city and country the customer would like to add a LN to determine availability.
