Get 1,000 Free AT&T Rollover Minutes
All that said, I get the impression that we're still unusual in our use of Skype over voice minutes.
I used Vonage at work for a few years until replacing that entirely with Skype recently. Most of my calls are now made over Skype directly, and Skype's interface with the regular phone number is finally reliable enough for me to use. I have a cell phone as a backup.
The interesting thing is I received a *different* text message, asking me to call an 800 number to receive my 1000 bonus rollover minutes. The agent promptly explained that it was sponsored by U-Verse.
We have had U-Verse available, however the outrageous installation and equipment fees, for a one-time charge of $400 plus monthly equipment rental of (now) $4/mo kept me away. In the past, they refused to waive those fees. From my perspective, I wasn't willing to pay them that money just to give them the right to bill me every month in perpetuity.
I told the agent that I was interested but not willing to pay the installation and activation fees. He offered to waive them, all $400 worth, and the monthly equipment rental fee too. And the confirmation email indeed confirmed that.
They must be desperate, because they absolutely wouldn't budge before.
