One of the best customer-centric feature AT&T Wireless phones now have available is a quick & easy way to find out exactly how many minutes you have left in your cell phone plan this month.
All you have to do is dial *MIN# and hit SEND.
In a minute or two, AT&T Wireless will send a text message back to your phone with the Minutes Remaining in your cell phone plan — and it’s broken down into ANYTIME, N&W (Nights & Weekends), and RO (Rollover Minutes accrued to date).
This is a great feature to stay ontop of your cell phone plan so you’re not stung by unexpected overage charges. Although for me, since I don’t use anywhere close to my allotted minutes each month, this free service just allows me to stay amazed at how many thousands of rollover minutes I actually have left (I have over 6,000 rollover minutes as of today!).
And I’m on such an economical plan right now ($30/1000 minutes anytime with Free Mobile-to-Mobile) that it’s not worth it to change plans to a small bucket of minutes. So I use this feature to just stay amazed at how much I can really talk if I wanted to — the problem is that I don’t think I can find anyone that wants to hear me that much!
