I got my text yesterday midday and replied right away and still don't have the add ons???


@bigscottydawg  Some members reported that it was fast yesterday but it certainly looks like it lagged a bit from the response this morning.  Let's wait for the full 24 or 48 hours and see.  Keep checking.


And once you see it, kindly report back so we know how long is the "lineup"  🙂


Patience is a virtue. Do you know what Santa does to boys and girls who try to open their gifts early? You joined in 2018....I joined in 2019.... @Kered13  joined in 2020. We haven't gotten the text yet. You have a while to wait.

@darlicious   I saw in your other reply that the invite SMS is going backward in term of join date?

That seems to be the m-i-l activated in late September. She got the text yesterday very shortly before I reported the short code. She replied YES about 10 minutes after that. She had not recieved the holiday gifts yet as of midnight pacific.

@Cherplyn0206  This is applicable for all plans, and for new and existing customers.

I guess I have to wait.

You will receive a confirmation. When add-ons have successfully been added.

Hi, i shut down my phone at night time and i didn't get a text about free gifts. I'm wondering if you can send the text again?

 @Edsport : Text messages will queue up for several days. You just haven't received it many others still.
