Question 11113020

I assume that many iPhone users have seen the news that if you send 'yes' to 11113020 that you get a message back saying that at&t will add 1000 rollover minutes to your account.  

 

Is this legit?

The commenters on PhoneDog said that it was.  I haven't tried it myself to see.

Re: Question 11113020

I just called Premier customer care and was told that AT&T is offering 1000 free rollover minutes, but the text has to be sent to you, then you have to respond to it.  She said that I could not just text into that number.  If I don't receive the text, then I am not eligible.

 

Internet posts contradict this information, but I will wait and see.  I won't be able to use all the rollover minutes that I have now, so it's not a big deal if I don't get more.

Each of my friend does what the site says, and each get a confirmation.  We are all premier customer.  It works!!

It is legit that you can txt yes to that number... even if you did not get a txt first. You may get a confirmation back. I don't know if AT&T will then, at some point, screen out ineligible folks.

 

Depending on your usage pattern, this might be handy. I'm always dumping 500 minutes of my 550 minutes into rollover month after month... I current have just under 2.5 days of talk time rolled over, I doubt I will ever use that, let alone an additional 1000 minutes.... but I txted to it anyway, and got a confirmation txt back.

 

Why? Because it was there.

I already have 9500 rollover minutes.  Not sure if I could even use more.

There was always the possibility it was a scam getting people to sign up for some third party service by replying YES since its hard to confirm 11113020 is actually an AT&T message service number. Just because it said AT&T in the message didn't automatically make it real.

 

While yes its most likely real, people in general are too quick in believing/clicking everything they see online.  Thats why spammers, viruses, phising, hoaxes, trojans etc do so well.

Re: a Re: Question 11113020

From what I read elsewhere, the offer apparently isn't limited to only AT&T iPhone users--I texted from my wife's Motorola V600 about 10 minutes ago and just received the confirmation text on her phone...in addition to receiving it on my iPhone as well.  Wonder if the 1000 minutes will be applied on a per-line basis if each phone on a family plan received the confirmation, or if it's just 1000 minutes total no matter how may phones on the account received it.

 

FWIW--the V600 received two confirmation text msgs within minutes of each other.

Re: Question 11113020

@Ed, I see what you are saying. I thought of the spamming possibility, too. That's why I called AT&T first. I didn't confirm the number with her when she said that I couldn't initiate the text anyway.

Why would anyone believe anything that was so farfetched? Nobody questions anything anymore. How may emails have you received from people telling you to text some company or forward an email and you will get money or something for free? That's what I mean by a sucker born every minute. Learn to question what seems outrageous. Just because it comes in an email, is posted on the Internet, or comes as a text doesn't mean it's factual.

Actually, it's not a thrid party service - since I have those blocked for free via the parental controls option, and it worked...

 

You should do that too, it's quite a good idea with all the SMS scams out there.
