As someone who is currently going through Hurricane Sandy I can appreciate any company who wants to help out keep people in contact with their friends and family so heads up to AT&T for this. In fact I was able to use an AT&T back up phone and that was the ONLY phone able to get ANY kind of service. T-Mobile had NOTHING NOWHERE, Sprint was dead, and Verizon with all their 4G coverage…NOT EVEN A BAR OF SERVICE! Just AT&T and that little phone tried so hard.
AT&T Offers Storm Victims Free Mobile Charging Stations In Stores
WHAT: AT&T is taking several steps to provide assistance and relief for those in the Northeast devastated by the impact of Hurricane Sandy. AT&T is welcoming storm victims to visit any AT&T location to take advantage of free cell phone and tablet charging stations (customers of all carriers welcome.)
WHEN: Beginning immediately through Monday, November 12, 2012.
WHERE: All AT&T company-owned locations in greater Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware (Note, the majority of AT&T stores are open today.)
Additional Customer Support
AT&T and T-Mobile also have entered into an agreement to enable roaming on their networks to customers of both companies in the heavily impacted areas and where capacity is available and subscribers have a compatible device. AT&T and T-Mobile customers will be able to place calls just as they normally would, but their calls will be carried by whichever network is most operational in their area. This will be seamless for AT&T and T-Mobile customers with no change to their current rate plans or service agreements.
Also, AT&T wireless customers can make a $10 donation for Hurricane Sandy relief by texting to the following non- profit organizations:
- REDCROSS to 90999 to support the American Red Cross
- STORM to 80888 to help the Salvation Army
- HUMANE to 80888 to give to the American Humane Society
Customers who would like to contribute more can text up to five times for a total donation of $50. One hundred percent of any donation will be paid to the customer’s designated charity and the customer will be charged for the donation via the customer’s monthly AT&T bill.
