Softbank Offers Free Phones and Service to Orphans, Free iPhone Replacements

Softbank has announced that it will give free replacements for all lost or damaged iPhones and give free phones and service to all those orphaned by the Japanese tragedy.

Softbank founder and CEO Masayoshi Son recently visited Tamura, a city greatly affected by the Fukushima nuclear disaster. During the trip he announced that Softbank would cover a year's worth of living expenses and provide jobs for 1,200 people.

Son's goodwill didn't stop there. According to Engadget, one of Son's twitter followers suggest he give orphaned children free credit for limited time so they could stay in contact with family and friends.

Son then retweeted this idea and announced that all earthquake orphans will receive free phones, along with call costs waived until they reach the age of 18. Another gadget-related initiative came in earlier today with Son promising free replacement for all lost or damaged iPhones due to the earthquake, with details to follow later.

It's definitely refreshing to see companies like Softbank and Apple stepping up to help during this crisis.
