UScellular Offering Customers Free Calls to Afghanistan

In the midst of the escalating situation in Afghanistan, UScellular is offering customers free calls to Afghanistan from the United States. As of Friday, August 16 and through December 31, 2021, customers will be able to make outbound calls to Afghanistan at no additional charge, as international dialing rates for these calls will not apply.


Postpaid customers will have charges automatically removed. Prepaid customers whose plans allow for international dialing can call customer service at 1-888-944-9400 or *611 from their mobile phone to receive credits for applicable calls.


“While we cannot take away the pain of this humanitarian crisis, we hope to make it easier to connect with friends, family and those who need our help and support,” said Courtland Madock, vice president, marketing at UScellular.
