T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon offering free calls/texts ahead of Matthew
Many U.S. carriers are allowing their customers to call the countries affected by Hurricane Matthew free of charge for a limited time. It seems like T-Mobile and Sprint are the most generous of the mega four carriers by even including free calls to Cuba, which usually cost as little as $0.98/minute.
- Free calls & texts from the United States to…
- Bahamas, Bermuda, Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, and Turks and Caicos.
- Waived roaming fees on calls and texts for customers in Bahamas, Bermuda, Haiti, Jamaica, and Turks and Caicos.
