ORIGINAL: With Hurricane Harvey approaching, T-Mobile has announced that it’s making it free for customers in Harvey’s path to stay connected.
T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers are getting free calling and texting to anywhere in the U.S. from areas affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana. This free calling and texting is available to customers in the following area codes:
- Texas: 830, 512, 210, 936, 956, 361, 979, 281, 832, 713, 936, 409
- Louisiana: 337, 985
This free calling and texting is available to T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers, including those on prepaid. It’s available from August 25th through September 1st.
While T-Mobile One and Simple Choice customers always get unlimited calling and texting, it’s good that T-Mo is extending free calling and texting to all of the other T-Mo and MetroPCS customers. Hurricanes are dangerous, so it’s important for anyone in Harvey’s path to keep in touch with loved ones.
