After AT&T announced that they will be letting their customers make free calls and send free texts to Japan, the other carriers have decided to follow suit. Like AT&T; Verizon, Sprint and MetroPCS are waiving all calling and texting fees to Japan. T-Mobile on the other hand are waiving fees for texting shortcodes (i.e. to the Red Cross donation line) – not much, but you can say at least it’s better than nothing. So if you’re a customer of one of the aforementioned networks, feel free to make calls to people you know in Japan just to make sure they’re safe.
Update (1.57 PM): T-Mobile has also announced that they will be offering free calls to Japan (both regular calls and WiFi calls) as well as free texts for their postpaid customers.
