I’m sure you’re all aware of the huge typhoon that’s devastated the Philippines during the past couple of weeks. Many have been left homeless, injured, many have lost their lives. To help those of you with friends and family over there, T-Mobile (along with other carriers) will be offering you free calls and texts to the Philippines. This offer covers not only T-Mobile, but all of its operating brands/MVNOs too. MetroPCS, GoSmart Mobile, Brightspot and Walmart Family Mobile are all included.
“T-Mobile is waiving and crediting fees for all calls and text messages by current customers placed to the Philippines from November 8 through November 30, 2013. GoSmart Mobile, Brightspot (Target) and Walmart Family Mobile customers will receive credits for calls and text messages to the Philippines. Prepaid customers will be able to make calls and send text messages to the Philippines during this timeframe, free of charge, if their service is capable of international calling and texting.
