MTS India launches International Roaming, now roam across 433 GSM networks in 231 countries

MTS India has created history by launching International Roaming services for its prepaid subscribers enabling them to roam across 433 GSM networks in 231 countries. The company has also launched a dual mode SIM card which would work both on GSM handsets while abroad and on OMH CDMA handsets while in India. MTS is now the first telecom operator in the country to provide international data roaming for CDMA prepaid customers.  
MTS customers on international roaming would have access to GPRS services in 206 countries on 322 telecom networks. Additionally, MTS customers will be able to enjoy HSDPA services in 114 countries on 145 roaming networks.

MTS customers availing international roaming services for the first time need to walk into an MTS Branded Retail Outlet (BRO), submit the required documents including copy of a valid passport and request to activate the service on their mobile numbers and get their SIM card swapped to the International Roaming card. For additional customer convenience, interested MTS customers can also download the International Roaming service request form from the MTS India website ( and submit it with the required documents at the nearest MTS BRO. Post the initial activation, on subsequent international visits, customers can simply dial MTS customer care to activate or deactivate international roaming on their MTS mobile numbers.
