Hawaiian Telcom is helping Hawaii residents to communicate with their family and friends in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan. The company is now offering all of its residential home phone customers free phone calls to the Philippines through November 30, 2013. For customers with Hawaiian Telcom Long Distance service, calls placed to the Philippines going back to November 8th, 2013, will not be charged. Home Phone Customers with Hawaiian Telcom International Long Distance plans who are making calls to the Philippines during the free calling period do not need to make any changes to their accounts in order to take advantage of this program. Customers who do not have Hawaiian Telcom as their international long distance provider may call 643-0929 to designate Hawaiian Telcom, at no cost, then begin free calling to the Philippines. The program will cover any direct calls to the Philippines. Calls to operators or directory assistance will continue to be charged at the usual rate.
