AT&T and T-Mobile have agreed to open up each other's networks in New York and New Jersey to provide additional service to customers affected by Hurricane Sandy. The two carriers, which were part of a failed attempt to merge permanently last year, share similar GSM and UMTS technology that enables phones to work on both networks. AT&T and T-Mobile have reached an agreement to enable roaming on each other's networks, so customers of either carrier will be able to use the other when necessary. In other words, a T-Mobile customer in an area of New Jersey with no service will be able to roam on AT&T with incurring any charges. The same applies for AT&T customers on T-Mobile network.source: AT&T
