Sprint, T-Mobile and MetroPCS are Offering Free Calls and Texts to Japan (Updated)

Joining AT&T and Verizon, Sprint and MetroPCS are waiving all calling and texting fees to Japan. T-Mobile is doing its bit too, waiving fees for texting shortcodes, like the Red Cross donation line. Updated. [PhoneScoop and BGR via MobileCrunch]

UPDATE: T-Mobile US is waiving calls and texts to Japan until March 31st.

DISCUSSION

Kinda makes me want to make friends in Japan just to have someone to text and piss of Sprint. Then again that could make them broke and then there would definitely only be shitty phones like the Kyocera.
