So last month, AT&T, reeling off the loss of iPhone exclusivity, went into all out panic mode and started treating customers like human beings for once.

They started offering some customers the unlimited data plans again, added an extra 2GB to the DataPro tethering plans, created a new Mobile to Any Mobile feature, and they even offered to pony up 1,000 bonus rollover minutes just to show us how much they care.

I have to admit; it was bizarre to see AT&T get all courteous with their customers. Just a few minutes ago, AT&T made good on their promise of an extra 1,000 roll over minutes as I was alerted by text message much in the same way as the initial offer…

I hate the fact that AT&T choose to wait until customers were/are looking to jump ship before they stop treating them like dirt. Hindsight’s 20/20, but I don’t know what they were so worried about anyway.

It’s been shown that the Verizon iPhone 4 wasn’t as popular as initially projected, and most of us aren’t using robot-controlled flamethrowers to showcase our hate for the embattled network.

AT&T; all you have to do is treat us well, have competitive rates, and improve your network coverage. Okay, I suppose that last item is a wee bit of a stretch.

Have you received your 1,000 free minutes yet?

    I never received the original offer. Joined AT&T 10/2010. But read about the offer and tried the code. Did not work when I sent it through bitesms with or without GV. I then disabled both and sent the code through native app and got a success reply. The minutes were credited a few days ago.

    However will not likely use them all unless AT&T treats me badly and I decide to make some long calls to one of my cheap voip lines. But I am rarely that vengeful.

  • Got mine yesterday. It’s a pity I hardly use voice on my plan anymore. All about that data now 🙂

  • Just got my text from ATT this morning. I’m now up to 2,438 rollover minutes that I’ll most likely never use 🙂

  • T-Mizzle

    I got mine about a week and a half ago. I am on the family plan. I like AT&T. Been with them since they were Cingular in 2006. I’m not switching to Verizon even though being a Michelin employee gets me a percentage off my bill. AT&T matches that!

  • William Douglas

    I never did get mine 🙁

  • jose

    does this happen every month?

    I never found Jurassic Park since I was also young to see it in theaters. But I found it proper once the VHS got out. But it’s among the best shows of the 90s and my personal favorite Spielberg shows ever!!
