AT&T rewards loyal customers with 1000 FREE rollover minutes



I just received a tip from Gadget Guy reader Scott Audette (thanks Scott!) that AT&T is giving away 1000 free rollover minutes to their users. Apparently they're doing this as a reward for loyal customers who have stayed with them. image.pngThis comes on the heels of increasing data plans by 2GB for free and recently announcing unlimited mobile to any mobile calling.

Some users have reported getting a text message with this offer. I didn't get the text message because I elected to stop receiving them (I may reconsider that now). If you're an AT&T user and want to get the free minutes, here's what you need to do.

Using an SMS app on your phone, send the message YES to 11113020 by March 31, 2011. You will receive the confirmation message below and your account will be credited with 1000 free rollover minutes. The confirmation message says it can take up to four weeks for the credit to show up on your account.


Although my AT&T contact couldn't confirm this today, I just sent the text and received the confirmation message above. I also did it on my son's phone with the same result. We have four AT&T phones total in the house so I wonder if that means we'll be getting 4,000 rollover minutes?

UPDATE: Originally this was posted as a reward for iPhone users only. Then Gadget Guy reader Mike McGill messaged me saying he sent the text message on his Blackberry and received confirmation of the free 1000 minutes too. So apparently it's for all AT&T customers.
