AT&T is offering 1,000 bonus rollover minutes to some subscribers through a text message, but it’s possible to plug into this thank-you promotion even if you didn’t receive the text message yourself. The offer takes up to four weeks to process, and you have until March 31st, 2011 to take advantage of it.
The promotion was first reported by our friends at 9-to-5-Mac, who were able to confirm with AT&T that the offer was legitimately from Apple’s first iPhone carrier (coming from an unbranded SMS ID of 11113020, there was some concern that it may have been a scam of some sort).
Not every AT&T subscriber has received the text, however, but it was quickly discovered that sending a “yes” message to the promotional number 11113020 whether or not you received the invitation allowed users to enroll in the promotion. Two TMO staff members were able to confirm this, as seen in our screenshot below.
Texting “yes” to 11113020 received the above response from AT&T
That reply took several minutes to arrive, and worked with both “Yes” and “yes.”
