    Sprint international roaming

    Sprint offers data service in many locations throughout the world. While roaming with a data roaming capable device you will have access to email, be able to browse the internet, and access company applications (datalink and other applications may not be available). Check coverage to view services available by city.
    Only select devices are capable of accessing data services while roaming. The following is a list of data roaming capable handsets:
