    already exists."

    he says he has not done anything with the refer-a-friend program.

    any idea?

    He actually has done something with the refer-a-friend program.

    he said he just activated his account yesterday and has done nothing with the refer-a-friend account?

    Well, that would be the problem right there wouldn't it? The refer-a-friend program is for referring friends, not referring current customers. I'm pretty sure all that stuff has to be done before he signs up.

    so for this to work, you have to enter the e-mail address of the person before they activate their AT&T account?

    thanks for the info!

    No. That's wrong. Within 30 days of activation.

    that's what I though because when I was referred by someone on here it was after I activated my account.

    Well crap. I've stopped doing it because I was told it had to be before they even signed up. Ah, the incompetence at AT&T call centers never fails to amaze me. :(
