AT&T offers users 1,000 free rollover minutes

rolloverIn what’s becoming a weekly occurrence, AT&T is offering a new deal to its users. Starting Friday, iPhone customers have been receiving a text message from the carrier alerting them they’ve been gifted 1,000 free rollover minutes. It seems to be AT&T’s little way of saying “thanks for not ditching us for the Verizon iPhone.”

AT&T hasn’t issued a press release confirming the offering, but 9to5Mac has confirmed the deal. And if you’re an AT&T iPhone subscriber who has not yet received the valuable text message, sending an SMS to 11113020 that reads “YES” by the end of March should do the trick. We tried out sending this text to the number and indeed received the following response: “Thank you for accepting our free 1000 bonus Rollover minute offer. Please allow up to 4 weeks for processing.” So expect a wait until the minutes are actually added to your account.

This is just the latest in AT&T’s handful of offers. Most recently, the network began its new Mobile to Any Mobile program, allowing users who qualify to receive unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling. Shortly before that, it announced it would be expanding its tethering capabilities. And of course, we all heard that maybe, just maybe, AT&T iPhone customers will get their unlimited data plans back. Anything else you want, AT&T iPhone subscribers? Now’s the time to ask.

OnePlus 7T vs. iPhone 11: Which one will capture your next paycheck?
oneplus 7t review pocket

If you don't need a top-of-the-line premier smartphone that costs upwards of $1,000, a range of somewhat more affordable options with the features most people need is available at a more reasonable price. Current examples include last year's OnePlus 7T and the iPhone 11. But even mid-level devices pack an economic punch, and neither of these can be classified as budget phones -- not with base prices starting at $599 and $699 respectively. Let's see how they shake out in a feature-by-feature challenge.

This Verizon smartphone deal gives you up to $1,000 for your broken phone
The iPhone 12 Pro Max in-hand.

It’s a question as old as smartphones themselves: What do we do with our old iPhone or Android phone when we no longer need it (especially if it’s cracked or no longer turns on)? Well, to go along with these smartphone deals, Verizon has a solution. Right now, you can take advantage of a special offer and receive up to $1,000 when you trade your old phone into Verizon. The newest 5G phones, and a place to trade in old phones for up to $1,000! Where do we sign up?

This deal sounds too good to be true; it even gave us pause at first. The catch, if you can call it that, is that you need to switch over to Verizon if you want the maximum rebate on your new Phone. Verizon is offering up to $800 for your old phone (and that would be for the newest phone; chances are you will get something less); the other $200 comes in the form of a gift card that can be used toward your new phone, or to purchase accessories or other Verizon services.
