Now this is the type of competition we want to see. This week was a pretty tough week for AT&T, what with Verizon ending AT&T’s exclusive on the iPhone and all– a move that we’re sure led to some people bailing on AT&T for Verizon (exact numbers no ones saying yet). So if you’re AT&T, how do you say thank you to those that were loyal and stayed with you? Give them free stuff of course! Yes, this weekend AT&T began giving out 1,000 (yes, one thousand) free Rollover minutes to its subscribers, meaning if you had for example, a plan with the lowest 450 minutes per month, you now will have an extra 1,000 in the “bank” in the event you overuse that allotment in a month. Very nice indeed.
Now how to do you take advantage of this awesome gift? Simple, text “Yes” (without apostrophes) to 11113020. That’s it. Within 4 weeks or so your account should now have an extra 1,000 available Rollover minutes for you to use (even better, these are Rollover minutes and will keep on carrying over from month to month until they’re all used up). The deal runs from now until March 31st, and yes this isn’t just for iPhone users, we also tested this on an AT&T BlackBerry and it worked just the same.
So there you have it. A nice little weekend gift from AT&T, enjoy!
Yes you read that right– jeans. American Eagle, in a really awesome yet very out of the box attempt to draw more people to its stores is running a promotion from July 21st until August 3rd, where all you got to do is try on a pair of jeans and you get a card to redeem a free phone online. Yes– just walk in, try on some jeans (you don’t even need to buy them!), and walk out of the dressing room and you’ll get the redeem card. That’s it.
And we’re actually talking about some really good phones here– phones like the HTC Aria, BlackBerry Bold 9700 and Palm Pixi Plus for AT&T; the Palm Pre Plus, Motorola Droid and BlackBerry Bold 9650 for Verizon; or the Android packing Motorola Cliq XT for T-Mobile and BlackBerry Curve 8530 for Sprint– along with a bunch of other phones like the LG enV 3 and Samsung Alias 2, all for that awesome price of free (there are even deals for other phones like $10 off the HTC EVO 4G, $80 off a myTouch 3G Slide, and even the new T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant for $150, which isn’t even available yet from T-Mobile’s site).
Now there are some catches in a deal like this– you need to sign up for a new 2 year contract, and if you’re getting an Android, Palm, Windows Mobile phone or BlackBerry you will also have to sign up for your carrier’s respective data plan– but hey, free phones! Oh, and to make the deal EVEN BETTER: if your order your phone and pick your plan by September 30th American Eagle will give you an additional $25 gift card (and thus another reason to head back to their store).
So, who else all of sudden needs to go check out some new jeans?

Summer is almost here as schools are starting to close, and that means people going to camp, beaches, vacations you name it; We are all on the go. Many of us take our iPods because we can’t live 1 minute without it, but what about all the videos on YouTube that we watch for enjoyment; how can I get that on to my iPod for me to take on the go? Click the “More” button for the answer.
A couple months ago we spoke about a service called 4Info that lets a person get news and sports updates– among other things– sent through text messages to your cell phone. Today we got another free service called ChaCha. Also a free service– aside from standard texting rates — it allows you to text any question you may have to the “ChaCha guides,” and within a few minutes, they text you back an answer they found. The number you use for this 242-242 (or ChaCha), and I must say that after using it for the past few days, it worked pretty well. Asking it questions ranging from who scored for the Yankees yesterday to when Iron Man is playing at a near by theater, I received accurate answers in a couple of minutes.
Check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think of it in the comments.
We have something here that many of you will like… making your own Ringtones for free. Using a program called Audacity (download here), any of your unprotected music— those not purchased through iTunes (check your songs in iTunes by right-clicking on a selected song, clicking Get Info, and then looking at the bottom of that first tab) and such, or in Mp3 or ACC format— can be shrunken down and subsequently placed onto your phone. For a full guide, see this ATT forum I found. This should work for most ATT phones—unfortunately excluding the iPhone or any other smartphone— and possibly for T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint.
But don’t be disappointed iPhoners. In iTunes, you’ll see the option to convert to ringtone for an iPhone—though only for an iPhone—for an additional $1.
Ok, so we all really need our computers for one thing or another–be it games, music and videos, school or just browsing the internet– and we all hate when it gets real slow at doing those things. Well here are a few ways to help speed up your computer in doing those tasks.
