Check AT&T upgrade eligibility via text

I've been eying a coworker's Galaxy Note 3 as a replacement for my aging iPhone 4s. However, I couldn't justify spending $700 so I wanted to check my AT&T upgrade eligibility. I found out you can do this without logging into your AT&T account or talking to an account rep.


Dial *639# and press the Call button

A confirmation message will appear.
