I have excess minutes/dollars in my prepaid account.  I understand that AT&T participates in The mGive Foundation.  If I text a donation, will it be an additional charge  to my credit card for my prepaid account or will it simply be deducted from my current prepaid balance?

Re: Donations

As referenced in this article about donations to Chile, SMS based donation will be debited from the balance of your pre-paid account. 


As of May 1st, I am no longer serving as the Community Manager for AT&T. This account will no longer be able to accept private messages.

Re: Donations

I tried my donation per your advice and it worked fine. The charge was deleted from my account balance just as you had said.
