Calls and texts to the UK are free on AT&T, Sprint, Boost, and Virgin for a limited time following terror attack


After the horrific terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena in London, US carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile, and Boost Mobile are making calls to the area completely free of charge.

Until the end of May 24, British time, AT&T and Sprint will either waive or credit charges for calls placed and texts sent from America to Britain. Virgin and Boost, Sprint's pre-paid virtual operators, also offer free calls and texts between the US and the UK.

T-Mobile and Verizon are yet to make any moves or statements, though it's highly likely that they eventually will. Over at the UK, local carrier EE will let everyone charge their phone or use an available one to call someone.

Manchester Arena isn't in London, it's in Manchester. The clue is in the name.

"After the horrific terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena in London, US carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile, and Boost Mobile are making calls to the area completely free of charge." "T-Mobile and Verizon are yet to make any moves or statements" So why is T-Mobile included in the first paragraph if they are "are yet to make any move or statement"?
