News T-Mobile Responds to Hurricane Harvey

As our customers and employees in Puerto Rico and parts of the Southeast US brace for Hurricane Irma, T-Mobile is reminding customers in areas of Texas that were affected by Hurricane Harvey that the Un-carrier is still there to help.

“The hero stories keep rolling in. I couldn’t be more proud,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “We are a family at times like this and it shows.”

Here are a few ways T-Mobile is offering assistance:

  • T-Mobile announced #HR4HR Home Runs for Hurricane Recovery. Click here for more information.
