The network roaming agreement calls for no fees or charges to their current rate plans if they roam.
"AT&T and T-Mobile customers will be able to place calls just as they normally would, but their calls will be carried by whichever network is most operational in their area," the press release reads. "This will be seamless for AT&T and T-Mobile customers with no change to their current rate plans or service agreements even if the phone indicates the device is attached to the other carrier's network."
AT&T and T-Mobile use the same GSM and UMTS standards, making an agreement possible. Sprint and Verizon use different CDMA standards.
