US roaming didn't work in Alaska

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin


on 26 May 2023, I purchased an unlimited talk, text and 3GB data add-on for my phone, to use on a cruise to Alaska. I am back home from my cruise now and was unable to use any of these features because I could never get a signal. Is it possible to have this credited to my account somehow? Thanks for any help

HI @SweetTweet222 

Hawaii and Puerto Rico both work, it says  all 50 states, plus Pureto Rico and the US Virgin Islands

But of course, Alaska is part of the 50 states and the one not work  😞

hi @wa1 sorry, no roaming in Alaska.  T-Mobile does not have its own network to provide Pm roaming

please submit a ticket for CS agent here and ask for refund

Taggging the CS_agent is unlikely to yield results. Please open a ticket using the chatbot, lr kf that doesn't work, send a private message tl CS_Agent.
