    I don't get it, everyone's saying to text *639# to get your upgrade eligibility, but how do you text *639#? I can't type * or # in the number input field?

    You don't text it, you dial it like a phone call using the phone keypad. Press call when you're done entering it...

    Yep. Then you get a text from AT&T.

    So you call, then hang up, and they'll text you your eligibility information?

    EDIT: Ah, got it. Thanks guys!
