AT&T waives voice, data and text overage fees for Oklahoma tornado victims through June 30th

“In response to the devastating tornado that hit Oklahoma City on Monday, U.S. wireless carrier AT&T announced it will be waiving all overage charges for those affected through June 30,” AppleInsider reports.

“On Monday afternoon local time, Oklahoma City saw a massive tornado system rip through parts of the city and surrounding areas, leaving flattened buildings and at least 91 fatalities in its wake,” AppleInsider reports. “Hours later, AT&T announced it would be supporting efforts by waiving voice, data and text overage charges through the end of June for affected areas. ”

AppleInsider reports, “AT&T also reminded customers that they can contribute $10 to Red Cross humanitarian efforts by texting “REDCROSS” to 90999. The donation will be charged as part of a user’s monthly bill.”

  1. A better gesture would be to waive all fees during this disaster. Overage fees? Give me a break. Sounds nice but who ever goes over when you have roll-over minutes. I wonder how many of their towers were destroyed. AT&T might not even work there right now.

  2. I agree with the first poster… If ATT was really sympathetic, they’d just wave all payments for 30 days…

    But they are not really sympathetic… this is nothing short of a publicity stunt for ATT

  3. I think it is a nice gesture. But of course everything and everyone gets attacked on this forum. Nothing is ever good here, just nag nag nag. Biggest bunch of losers in the world.
