AT&T is offering free cell phone and tablet charging stations to those left without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. All company-owned stores in New England will offer the charging service until Nov. 12. The nearest store is in the Westfield Trumbull mall, which also has multiple charging stations set up.
In addition, AT&T and T-Mobile have entered into an agreement to enable roaming on their networks to customers of both companies in the hard-hit areas. Customers can place calls normally, but their calls will be carried by whichever network is most operational in the area. There will be no change to rates or plans for customers of either company.
