In response to the devastating tornado that hit Oklahoma City on Monday, May 20, 2013, AT&T has announced that it plans to waive all voice, data, and text overage fees for those affected by the tornado through June 30, according to AppleInsider. The website reports:
"Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tornado that hit the Oklahoma City area Monday," said Bryan Gonterman, state president for AT&T Oklahoma. "We are coordinating with local authorities and bringing in additional resources."AT&T also reminded customers that $10 can easily be donated to the Red Cross' humanitarian efforts by texting "REDCROSS" to the number 90999. Finally, Gonterman advised those trying to reach friends and family located in the Oklahoma City region to attempt sending a text message, rather than placing a voice call. Our thoughts, too, are with those affected by this terrible catastrophe. As usual, we'll keep the website updated with further news concerning this story as it becomes available. Donations to the Red Cross can also be made online.
