  1. AT&T has announced that it has implemented international calling and texting support efforts for US residential wireless and wireline consumers trying to connect with loved ones in Japan, following last week's tragic earthquake and tsunami. AT&T customers will either see no charges reflected on their monthly statement, or they will see a full credit applied to their statement for activity between March 11 and March 31.

  2. Good gestures from them....but i highly doubt it will go along smoothly to some unsuspecting customers.

    I've had numerous issues with Verizon in the past years where they offer a supposedly complimentary features then only to reflect on my next month's bill. As if the charges were snuck in there blatantly.

    I had to call them every time and dispute my monthly bills.

    Thank you for sharing. I live in the effected areas of Japan. Home Canadian companies follow through
     
  4. Anyone know if Sprint home/wireline long distance is matching AT&T and Verizon's wireline long distance free calling to Japan?
