Just got the release. Both AT&T and T-Mobile are allowing their users to roam on each other's networks in areas that have been hit by Hurricane Sandy.
Good job T-Mobile and AT&T!
T-Mobile and AT&T have taken steps to help our customers in the following ways:
· 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 even if the phone indicates the device is attached to the other carrier’s network.
· T-Mobile and AT&T both utilize network technology based on GSM and UMTS standards, which allows for this sharing of voice and data traffic.
