AT&T iPhone Customers: Get 1000 Free Bonus Rollover Minutes

Feb 11, 2011 - 17 Comments

Update: AT&T has just confirmed to us via Twitter that this is legit!


If you’re an AT&T iPhone customer, you can get 1000 free bonus rollover minutes simply by texting an AT&T number. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Send a new text message to “11113020” that says “Yes”
  • Wait for the thank you confirmation from AT&T saying the 1000 bonus minutes will be credited to your account

The message says it will take up to 4 weeks for the free minutes to post to your account.


Some iPhone customers received text messages alerting them to the free minutes, but even those who didn’t get the notification apparently are eligible as discovered by 9to5Mac readers.

This appears to be a retention effort by AT&T to reward customers and perhaps avert them from jumping ship to the Verizon iPhone.

    Heads up all: this is NOT iPhone specific, all AT&T customers are eligible.

    I got the minutes for my iPhone, coworkers got them on their Androids and iPhones, it looks like ALL CUSTOMERS ARE ELIGIBLE!

    got the confirmation immediately, 4 weeks is kind of a bummer but free is free

    I’m maxed out on rollover minutes so I guess I don’t need to bother with this. Yes, I do live a dull life….

    Wonder if it works for every phone on a multi phone account

  5. Chris says:

    I got the message TWICE in 10 mins, I hope it doesn’t keep coming?

    • James says:

      I got the message twice as well… but none after that. Let’s see how long it takes to get the free minutes – if ever. (hey, it IS AT&T… ha ha!)

    It says thank you for accepting… what exactly am I saying yes too?

    Great, this will go nicely with my other 3000+ rollover minutes that I will never use. Hey, AT&T, want to make everyone really happy? Offer unlimited SMS for all plans for free since it essentially costs you nothing.

    I’m on a 700 min family plan with 2 lines and I got the free mins. Cool stuff. TY ATT!
