T-Mobile Us Inc : Statement: T-Mobile Working to Help Customers Stay Connected to Friends and Family in Philippines After Typhoon Haiyan..

Verizon will also waive charges for long-distance calls and text messages to the Philippines from Nov. 8 through Dec. 7 to support its customers who are trying to communicate with their families and friends.

All calls made from a Verizon residential landline to the Philippines will be rated at $0.00 per minute, from Nov. 8 through Dec. 7. Customers with Verizon World Plan (300 or 500 minutes of international calling) can call the Philippines without using any minutes from their time-allotment blocks.*

All Verizon Wireless post-paid customers will also receive free calling to the Philippines from Nov. 8 through Dec. 7 as well as free text and multimedia messaging to the Philippines for the same time period. Post-paid customers are those who receive a monthly bill from the company.

Dallas, Texas, November 12, 2013

AT&T* is implementing international calling and texting relief efforts for U.S. residential wireless and wireline customers trying to connect with loved ones in the Philippines, following the recent devastating typhoon.

Effective November 8, and continuing through November 30, AT&T wireless postpaid customers will not be charged for:

  • International long distance usage for calls placed from an AT&T wireless number in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S.V.I. to the Philippines.
  • Text messages to the Philippines, originated from an AT&T wireless number in the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S.V.I.

For any of the above activity, customers will see no charges reflected on their monthly statement for the period November 8 through November 30, 2013.

For AT&T wireline and U-verse Voice customers, we are also waiving charges up to 60 minutes for direct dial calling to the Philippines, effective November 8 through November 30. Customers will either see no charges for these calls reflected on their monthly statement, or they will receive a credit in a later statement.

“We want to help our customers connect with loved ones in the Philippines in any way we can,” said Mark Collins, senior vice president, Data and Voice Products, AT&T Mobility. “Connecting with family and friends is most important at times like this and we want to make it as easy and worry free as possible for our customers.”
