Do You Want 1000 FREE AT&T Rollover Minutes?

attlogoAs an attempt to keep some of the customers that seem to be moving on to Verizon, AT&T is offering them 1000 Free rollover minutes to be added to their rollover pool. The offering comes to their iPhone customers via text message, to which these customers need to answer “Yes” if they want to accept the offer. The resulting text message is that this free offer will be processed within the next 4 weeks. This is time enough to miss the special offer that Verizon has with AT&T customers that are willing to move to their competing carrier.

While this is a sneaky but smart approach on the part of AT&T that will most likely work on most unsuspecting customers, the implementation of it left a hole wide open that most AT&T customers may take advantage of right away. Their system is prepared to give you 1000 rollover minutes as long as you send a text message saying “Yes” to 11113020 regardless of you having an iPhone, smartphone or any other cellphone.

I have personally tested this to be working with several non iPhones.

You win some, you lose some… this time AT&T seems to be about to lose some… while keeping some customers that were going to stay with them anyway.

Thanks AT&T!
