MTS Allstream Inc. has signed a deal with Motorola Inc., which would allow its Manitoba customers to roam on both CDMA and GSM networks in over 140 countries worldwide through its new International Roaming Service.

The service eliminates the need to keep track of where customers make phone calls or what type of calls they are making.

“It’s like a passport for your cell phone,” said Kelvin Shepherd, president of consumer markets with MTS. “This service allows (subscribers) to stay connected to their business, friends and family without worrying about unpredictable rates and charges.”

The Motorola A840 handset costs $249.99 on a two-year contract.

MTS’s current flat-rate International Roaming Service on GSM networks will cost users $2.49 per minute for all in-country and country-to-country calls.
