    What is "*Now" in my Address Book?

    hi Y'all,

     

    I've been curious about something... When I go to Menu then to  Address Book there is a listing labled  "*Now"  with a number of  "*669" just below the entry.   Anyone have a clue what it is?  I know I didn't place it there   :-\

     

    My phone is a Samsung Propel.

     

    Thankx in advance,

     

    B.W.

    That short code will return the upgrade availability for that line of service.

    Thank you,  Wilcre.  I've noticed  the  *Now  on the 3 phones I have but,  never knew what they were for.

     

    hoping a warm, happy weekend for you,

    I'm sorry, but what do you mean "return" the upgrade availability?  I'm not sure what you mean by "return".

     

    Thanks so much. I had no idea what that meant either.

         When you use *NOW, you query the system what the upgrade date is for that line, the system then "Returns" the eligibility date to you.

                Oh, so it does't do anything to your phone; just gives you the information? I'm sorry if I seem so dumb about this.
