    Red Pocket Annual Plans International Calling?

    Do the Red Pocket annual plans include international calling? I am looking at either the $60 or $100 plans for two relatives that want to call back to China. They use very few minutes a month.

    Yes, both landline and cellular calls to China are included on all plans. Minutes will just be counted the same as domestic minutes.

    Not sure when that page was last updated, but ever since I moved from GSMA to redpocket Verizon I lost free international calling.

    That's strange. Exactly what happens when you try to make a call?

    “Welcome to Verizon wireless, this call can’t be completed because there are restrictions on this line”

    Not sure if it matters, but are you using VoLTE or 1x? You might want to check with Chat to see what is up.

    I will be testing Verizon Volte/coverage in the next week or so. Will check international calling as well & report my findings.

    Just activated a line on Red Pocket Verizon & yes you are correct about the international calling. You cannot direct dial like on AT&T. You have to first dial (712) 775-8888 & then enter the international number.

    OP, don't get too excited about free intl calling. A coworker uses RP GSMA and frequently experiences connection problems, the call is either connected to the wrong number or doesn't connect at all. Sometimes have to call 3 times to get connected correctly. Also, sometimes the voice quality isn't clear.

    What country is your co-worker calling? I have never experienced any of these issues.

    Just called the British Consulate & Canada and both have crystal clear sound quality.
