  1. The *777*1# method (from what I understand) is only useful for GSM phones. If you have a CDMA phone, you can text the word USAGE or BALANCE to 611611.

    It will respond with a message and then a 2nd text message (from a different SMS number) will be received with your phone’s voice, data and text numbers.

    This method did not work for a while but it did start again in November.
    It also does not cost you text units.
