T-Mobile Makes Calling and Texting to Turkey Free for Customers
Bellevue, Washington – July 15, 2016 – To help our customers connect with loved ones in the wake of the attempted military coup in Turkey, T-Mobile is making it free to call and text from the United States (including Puerto Rico) to the country. T-Mobile will also waive roaming fees for customers in the area.
“We hope for the best for everyone impacted by the current events in Turkey,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Make sure you check on your loved ones and take care of each other.”

The offer applies to all T-Mobile Simple Choice prepaid and postpaid customers, as well as customers of MetroPCS, GoSmart Mobile, and WalMart Family Mobile. It is effective from July 15, 2016 through at least July 17, 2016.  Customers will see regular charges on their bills with corresponding credits.
