With the Verizon now available on iPhone, iPhone owners in the US will, for the first time, be able to savor the sweet and delicious taste of competition. Up until recently, AT&T was able to do as it pleased with its millions of iPhone customers, but with Verizon now entering the race, both carriers will be trying to out-do the other as each looks to steal subscribers away from the other. Or in the case of AT&T, prevent users from defecting to Verizon.
Early on Friday, 9to5Mac reported that AT&T was sending text messages out to iPhone users, thanking them for sticking with AT&T and offering them 1000 bonus rollover minutes on the house. As far as we’ve heard, this offer is available to all AT&T iPhone customers and if you haven’t yet received a message indicating as much, simply text the word “yes” to 11113020 and you’ll get a text back stating that your account has been credited.
