If you're a new AT&T U-Verse internet customer (or considering becoming one), listen up – the service provider announced yesterday that it is now offering a selection of devices free when new customers package internet service with either U-Verse TV or Voice. Customers can choose between a Nexus 7, Kindle Fire, Sonos Play:3 (with WiFi bridge), or an Xbox 360. What's more, customers will get access to AT&T's WiFi network free of charge.


While a free Android tablet (or Play:3 or Xbox 360) may not be your primary reason in signing up for brand new lines of service, those in the market for new internet, TV, or voice service who also happen to want a new gadget (Android-powered or otherwise) may find this deal appealing, and would be well-advised to mention the offer when ordering.

For the complete press release, just check out the source link below.

      I used them a few years back. They were doing a promotion where they gave you 200 dollars (a check) just for signing up contract free. I liked the TV service, and internet was rather stable...but it was more than double what comcast was charging (for double the channels/internet speed)

      • http://twitter.com/mikedotdunham mike dunham

        Yea, I was just looking at competitors after seeing this and it is all pretty close to the same price. Comcast in my area is downright terrible and I will not consider them again. First time I had Comcast nothing worked properly, I gave them 2 weeks and then switched.

        • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

          yeah. Switching to Comcast made me feel dirty inside. The TV service is horrible, it feels like something out of the 90s. The internet service though has been really good, and phone/TV/Internet (60/5) all for what Uverse charged just for internet at half that speed was just to much to pass on.

          • Layman76

            My family's been thinking of switching to their Internet+TV but we weren't sure about the speeds, and Comcast has been really good where we are. Were you using AT&T's provided modem/router? If so, how are the speeds?

          • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

            Speeds were as advertised, and very reliable. However, their "gateway" (what they call the modem) is a TV/Internet router. You cannot use your own modem. The issue was opening ports didn't work very well.

            I think I ended up setting my WiFi router as a "DMZ" and using it...but that caused other issues, like some corporate VPNs to disconnect often.

          • Layman76

            Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know. I bought a Motorola SurfBoard for $90 and speeds have never been better, especially with wireless N. Is it true they only have wireless b/g?

          • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

            Mine only had B/G (another reason I wanted to use my own AP)...but that was a year ago. I don't know if they have made any changes.

  • FrillArtist

    Do you have to sign a contract for their TV service?

    • http://www.facebook.com/khiryshank Khiry Kai Shank

      I think for the first year, which is pretty good considering most want you to do two years.

  • http://www.facebook.com/khiryshank Khiry Kai Shank

    I might do this. So many items to choose from. Let's see....I'm pretty sure the Nexus 7 is better than the Kindle Fire and I already have an Xbox. I've been considering the Sonos due to the awesome commercials. Nexus 7 or Sonos...Hmmmmm......

    • Maggard

      Wondering that myself. Depending on the size of the Kindle Fire HD, it might be worth considering. From the image on the U-verse site, it looks like the Kindle Fire HD is the 8.9" with the Nexus 7 being in front of it.

      I'd like to have more detail on each item. The high end device is supposedly $350, so I am not sure which is the highest retail price. Soros Play:3 is $299 on Amazon and everything else less. So, I am searching for more details..

      Just remember, there is a wait up to 34 weeks to earn the redemption coupon for your device of choice and then a up to 23 weeks wait for the delivery. These numbers are from an article titled "Free Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire Deals Worth the Wait?" Bing that title and it should show be one of the first links.

      • Shanice Jones

        I just signed on for AT&T last week I am trying to decide between the Kindle and the Nexus7. Which one is better? Also I looked over the article and there was a typo.It is supposed to be 3-4 weeks and 2-3 weeks for delivery

        • http://www.facebook.com/khiryshank Khiry Kai Shank

          Have you thought about the SONOS PLAY:3? The reason I say that is because the other hardware is going to be dated in less than 6 months. The SONOS: Play 3 WITH Wifi bridge will give you the best value. You can always sell the Sonos play and get something more expensive.

          • Maggard

            I went Amazon. Figure they have the free app a day which provides enough options to set the system up to pass down to one of the kids. For now I'll use it until able to upgrade to the Android Tablet I really want.

            I considered the SONOS, but was attracted to the upgraded version. Figured, I'd try and save up to buy them instead of settling for the SONOS: Play 3. Also figure a few people are going to put theirs up on Craigslist if I want them.

          • Kathryn Dodds

            I am hoping someone can tell me which kindle it is. Also, does amazon allow you to return and pay the additional cost for the higher value item.

      • http://www.facebook.com/khiryshank Khiry Kai Shank

        Sorry Maggard, it took a while to reply. But I signed up and decided to get the Sonos Play 3 because it has the Wifi bridge with it. The retail price is $350 if you consider the entire package. That can always be sold on eBay or something later.

        • Maggard

          Went Kindle, but wish I'd known if it was the 16gb or 32gb. I do hope it isn't the 16gb, nor the one with adds for a lower price. Was ill and my wife wanted to put the order in. Maybe I'll be lucky and it is the 32gb without adds. Otherwise, I'll be dreaming of those SONOS Play:3 sounds.

  • DanSan

    AT&T UVerse is absolutely horrible. I have 2 employees who live in Georgia and have it. They cant use the VoIP phones we sent them because somebody is hacking the network, spoofing the mac of the phone and making long distance calls all night. can taxi a 747 through the holes in their network. have 15+ external employees, nobody has issues but the ones on UVerse..

  • onepissdsob

    Its only for new customers only had mine for a week and a half and they I didnt quailfy! Bastages

    • Bob G

      Cancel and rejoin them? lol

      I called yesterday about this offer as I have been an AT&T Uverse customer for over 5 years. Short version, they could not offer me this deal but did make it very worth my while. I ended up getting an upgrade to the next TV package, keeping my 18mb internet with guaranteed pricing for the next 12 months which came out to be less than what this new deal is. The customer service rep also took $100 off my current bill on top of that. Sure I didn't get a N7 or Xbox or Sonos but I did get $100 credit plus I am saving $50/month for the next 12 months. Win for me.

  • lklh

    is it true

  • jayy

    i wonder if i add the uverse tv since i already have uverse internet could i still get that free device.

  • BeanTownBallaz

    My Xbox is on its way. Two more days til arrival. The service isn't the greatest. But it's the features of the service that convinced me to use it

  • Ken

    Just sign up and got the free nexus 7. Now I know the new nexus 7 just came out. I wonder if they will send me the new one or the old one. Either way I'm happy. U300+18meg internet. Free second wireless receiver, free HD, and $51off for a year. Free HBO and cinema 3month. Also got them to wave the $49 activation. Can't complain.

    • Dane

      How'd you manage all this? They only offer the free wifi device with Internet and Phone. If you just get Internet and TV then they give you $100 gift card. Not to mention they don't give you a free second receiver or free HD..
