Text from AT&T

Have a 3G iPhone, just received a text -- supposedly from AT&T (the number it was from is "281-3") -- that says:

 

AT&T Free Msg: Your phone is enabled to dial and roam internationally. Details and rates at att.com/global. See att.com/wirelesstraveltips for iPhone travel tips.

 

But, I didn't ask international roaming be turned on...so, what gives? Is this just an 'fyi' or is it something I need to look into?

 

Anyone else receive one of these today?

 

Thx! Smiley Happy

I would look into it. I've never recieved one, But I call Customer service or go to ATT store to find out for sure.

I got one today, I think it's just an 'fyi'. I don't plan on worrying about it.

 

unless this message board goes crazy about it that is.

the number doesn't look right so i would look into that, but it may just be an FYI and as long as your phone doesn't state that its roaming, then i wouldn';t worry about it.

Some accounts are given roaming and dialing privalges at the start depending on your credit worthiness, and for others a set time frame?? . As such I would say it is an fyi kinda thing.

Depending on your credit rating the international dialing and roaming services are not allowed untill you have been with att for a while then they are auto added. it sounds like its just FYI
