FLOW Jamaica has certainly improved their Roaming plans.
I admit they were a bit complicated to understand in my article FLOW Jamaica MyRoam Prepaid and Postpaid and Caribbean Roaming Plan.
There are now four (4) Prepaid Roaming plans, all of which are simpler and all of which you activate at the airport just before you step on the airplane:
- MyRoam Basic
- MyRoam Max
- MyRoam Max
- My Roam Data
- My Roam Data
But since then, thanks to the ongoing survey, they’ve improved their roaming plans as shown below:
|Plan Name||Duration||Cost||Anywhere Text||Roaming Minutes||Data (MB)||How to activate|
|(Home and Roaming Country)|
|MyRoam Basic||7 Days||$900||100||–||–||*134*1#|
|MyRoam Max||7 Days||$1,000||50||50||50MB||*134*2#|
|MyRoam Max||30 Days||$3,200||80||80||250MB||*134*4#|
|My Roam Data||3 Days||$500||–||–||50MB||*134*3#|
|My Roam Data||7 Days||$900||–||–||100MB||*134*5#|
These MyRoam roaming plans have the following benefits:
|Other Plan Benefits|
|Plan Name||Free incoming calls **||Free incoming text||Preferential Rates (text, minutes & data)||Applicable Roaming Destinations|
|MyRoam Basic||Yes||Yes||Yes||USA & Canada|
|MyRoam Max||Yes||Yes||Yes||USA, Canada and Flow Caribbean*|
|My Roam Data||No||Yes||No||USA, Canada and Flow Caribbean*|
Please note that FLOW Jamaica territories include:
- St. Kitts
- St. Lucia
- Turks & Caicos
- St. Vincent
Once a MyRoam Basic and the MyRoam Max plans are active and the customer has a primary balance greater than zero, Free incoming calls are applicable. So how does roaming for Postpaid customer fare?
Roaming for Postpaid – My Flow app room for improvements
Postpaid roaming now consists of the following plans:
- MyRoam Voice Bundle
- MyRoam Data 500MB
- MyRoam Data 1GB
It looks a lot clearer on a table:
|Plan||Calls to US/FLOW Minutes*||Anywhere Text||Incoming Calls||Monthly Price|
|MyRoam Voice Bundle||30||30||FREE||USD$19.95|
Add to that a dash of MyRoam Data and you can browse on the go!
|Plan||Mobile Internet Allotment||Monthly Price|
|MyRoam Data 500MB||500MB||US$100|
|MyRoam Data 1GB||1 GB||US$150|
These are activated by FLOW before the customer leaves; hopefully they’ll change this policy and allow FLOW FAM Postpaid to self-activate via the My FLOW App both in Jamaica and abroad as argued in FLOW Jamaica FAM Postpaid needs FLOW ID, My FLOW App and Mobile Money.
Out-of-Plan rates for Postpaid customers as listed below.
|Calls within the US||Calls to||Calls to||Incoming||Text||Mobile Internet|
|FLOW Countries *||other Countries||Calls|
So roaming has improved; now if they could only make it so that you can add credit and self-activate when overseas, then Roaming would be used by more people travelling abroad.
Sharing is caring so share this article with your friends, encouraging them to switch to FLOW Jamaica!
