  • AT&T Giving Away 1000 Free Minutes to Some iPhone Customers

    In yet another obvious effort to retain iPhone customers - those who now have more than one carrier option - AT&T is giving away 1000 free rollover minutes to some iPhone subscribers today (and through next month it seems). While it isn't yet known how many AT&T customers have already received a text from AT&T explaining the promotion, there's another way to see if you can claim your free minutes.

    As instructed, yours truly texted the word 'yes' to 11113020. The result? I received my free 1000 minutes (see screenie above for proof). If you don't want to text AT&T to claim your chunk of minutes, there's a good chance you may still hear from AT&T today or in the coming days. If so, here's the message you can expect:

    AT&T Free Msg: You’re a valued AT&T customer. We’d like to add 1000 bonus Rollover minutes to mobile number ending in xxxx. There’s NO cost or obligation to you. It’s our way of saying thank you. To have your minutes added, reply YES by 3/31/2011. Reply stop to end mktg msgs.

    Yesterday, the Verizon iPhone debuted to the masses. Feeling the heat, AT&T is ramping up its promotional efforts. Before today's fee minutes bonanza, earlier this month AT&T offered a 25% discount on one accessory purchase and even a free MicroCell to select iPhone customers.

      Minutes eh, I'd take a huge discount on a bill I don't need minutes... It's money that speaks to people or free stuff... Minutes cost them nothing...

      I have so many roll over minutes now this would not even be worth the text.

      Hello AT&T what we need are good data plans, maybe based on type of data (if all you do is watch 1 hour movies one plan, if you watch 2 minute video as part of a web page, another plan) stop ripping everyone off because a few folks spend 8 hours a day watching videos.

      Or better yet let me traded in my monthly rollover minutes for some data plan credit.

      This used to work! But now when you toggle back your minutes they also toggle back your rollover minutes down to the plan you selected! IOW if you have a 1400 minute plan with 2000 rollover minutes and you drop down to a 600 minute plan your rollover minutes get set down to 600 minutes! You lose the difference! I know because I used to do the same thing and they stopped allowing this about a year ago!!
