Default Hurricane Sandy Relief

Yesterday I received this text from VM:

"Hurricane Sandy Relief: To assist you during this difficult time, Virgin Mobile has extended your service"

Has anyone else ever gotten a message like that? Any idea what it means?

I do live about a half hour from Atlantic City, and my service was crap for the last few days because of Sandy. (Sometimes I had to use Google Voice to send texts - lol.) So are they giving me something for the lack of service? That would seem very proactive for a wireless carrier .... or for any company.

I received the same message yesterday...checked my account and they have put $30.00 in my account, (I'm on the $25 a month plan) and I have my account set up for auto pay...I also checked the Virgin Mobile USA Facebook page and others that are in/near the affected areas have received the same text. So yes, it looks like a good thing from VM.

I'm an idiot ...... I even have the minute checker widget and never noticed that they gave me an extra $5.

Thanks

I got a free month after telling them I couldn't pay due to power outage. And it seems like I have $5 in my account too. Thanks VM
