Cingular Tricks

By | February 9, 2007

I found out that I can check the balance and minutes of my Cingular bill without speaking to a representative. And I can even pay my bill, too. I was told that the text messages sent back to me are not charged on my bill. Here are some neat tricks for Cingular customers:

Check balance
Dial *BAL# (*225#) on your phone.
Press the Send key.
Within seconds, your balance is delivered via text message to your phone screen. You’ll also see your next bill’s due date as well as your last payment posted.

Check your minutes
Dial *MIN# (*646#) on your phone.
Press the Send key.
Within seconds, the minutes remaining are delivered via text message to your phone screen. These minutes will be broken down by type.

Make a payment
Dial *PAY (*729) on your phone.
Press the Send key.
You’ll get immediate access to our automated voice system. Follow the prompts to pay your current bill with a checking account, debit card, or credit card.
