AT&T Offers Free Calling and Texting to Japan in March



+ Add a Comment


although this offers ATT the chance to "look" pretty this wasn't really well thought out.  

free texting/data is a great idea.

free phone calls is not.  while many people here may want to contact loved ones over there a better alternative is some form of VOIP, like Skype.  encouraging free voice phone calls to Japan will only encourage people to clog up the already severely taxed infrastructure in that country.

what happens when someone in Japan is trying to call emergency services but their call gets dropped because the voice network is overloaded?

my 2 cents.



verizon and sprint are doing the same thing
