For security purposes, Tourist Kits must be shipped to U.S. addresses. We suggest asking friends, family or hotel management to use their address.

Do I have to bring my own phone?

The Tourist Plan requires an unlocked, GSM-compatible phone. If you need to purchase a device, tell your T-Mobile representative and they will guide you toward the right product for you.

How do I know my phone is compatible?

If you are unsure whether your phone will work with the Tourist Plan, you can check with your T-Mobile representative before purchase. See more information on T-Mobile network technologies and supported frequencies here.

Can I port in my number?

Because international numbers cannot port to the U.S., we will assign you a new U.S. number when you sign up for the Tourist Plan.

Can I use the product for longer than 3 weeks?

The Tourist Plan is intended for one-time use and will expire 3 weeks after activation. If you need service for longer than 3 weeks, you should speak with a T-Mobile representative and discuss your T-Mobile plan options. Your T-Mobile representative can direct you to the best plan for your needs.

Can I add any other features?

The Tourist Plan is a stand-alone product and is not eligible for additional features.

Does the Tourist Plan include Binge On™, Mobile without Borders™, and other Un-carrier features?

The Tourist Plan is specifically designed for short-term use and does not include Un-carrier features like Binge On and Mobile without Borders.

Does the plan automatically renew?

The Tourist Plan expires 3 weeks after activation, with no renewal. You do not need to worry about canceling your Tourist Plan.

Is the Tourist Plan set up per line or per account?

The Tourist Plan is available with only one line per account. If you and a friend or spouse both need service, you can activate separate Tourist Plans.

Are postpaid and @Work customers eligible for the Tourist Plan?

This plan is not available for postpaid or @Work customers.

Can I use my phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot?

Yes, the Tourist Plan enables you to turn your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot. Using your phone as a hotspot uses data from your 2GB allotment of 4G LTE data, with slower speeds after 2GB of use.

Does my data stop after I use my 2GB of 4G LTE data?

No, your data does not stop, but you will experience slower data at up to 2G speed.

What happens if I travel outside T-Mobile coverage area?

Domestic data roaming occurs when you travel outside of T-Mobile's network coverage. Your talk and text will remain unlimited and will use another carrier’s network. However, your data bucket will be limited to 200 MB. You'll receive a text notification when you near this limit.
