Following the devastating earthquake in Italy, the top four American carriers are now rallying to offer support to their customers who have relatives in Italy. AT&T and Verizon will offer free calls (mobile & landline) plus texts throughout Italy until August 26.
T-Mobile will also offer free calls and roaming for customers located in Italy, but without texts apparently. TMo will waive the fees for all calls made to Italy until August 28. This will also include the likes of MetroPCS, GoSmart Mobile, and WalMart Family Mobile.
Sprint (including Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile) will offer free mobile/landline calls and texts to and from Italy until the 29th of August, offering a day more than T-Mobile and three days more compared to the top-2 carriers of the U.S. Frankly, one or two days is simply not enough if some of your loved ones are genuinely in trouble there. But it’s a good gesture by the carriers nonetheless.
