This is a FOLLOW UP post regarding changes that AT&T has made to the Opt-Out process to simplify it and iron out the kinks. AT&T has acknowledged that some of its customers (including me and maybe you too) had difficulty completing the Opt-Out process on their mobile devices and as a consequence AT&T has revised the process for Opting-Out on a mobile device.
Here are the new revised instructions that were emailed out by AT&T:
- From your AT&T mobile device you want to opt out, go to adworks.att.com/mobileoptout
- Make sure you are on the AT&T wireless network, and not on any Wi-Fi
- Choose the blue Opt-Out button. You should receive the following message: “Thank you. This device will not be receiving AT&T AdWorks Relevant Advertising”
I just went through these steps on my iPhone and received the promised confirmation message. Simplifying this Opt-Out process and providing a confirmation message was a good move. All AT&T customers should have received an email from AT&T giving notice of this revised Opt-Out process for mobile devices. (THANKS to all of you who contacted AT&T to let them know that you were having difficulty with the initial Opt-Out process. I have a hunch that this new revised Opt-Out was launched in response to the feedback we all provided).
