Hey guys, look at us! We did good!

Way to toot your own horn T-Mobile. Congrats! Rolling Eyes
Yeah, it would have been much better to make it free but not tell anyone! Eh?

Granted that publicity is at least part of why T-Mobile did this, but can a company not do anything nice anymore without everyone assuming the worst - that it's 100% just a cheap publicity stunt? Would it really be better if they did nothing at all? M...

Yeah, so are all the other carriers. T-Mo has the same setup. You text HAITI to the very same number. But good for them, and its nice to see this outpouring of support from people. Makes me feel a little less jaded.

T-Mobile needs a halo on the T 0=]

Smile That is such great news to hear that T-mobile is stepping up and doing what's right in this time of crisis and I will definitely look to see where I can donate money to help. Its great to see how so many different people around the world are helping the people in Haiti. If only that was case with everything else, that is wrong with this world... Sad
