What is "*Now" in my Address Book?

hi Y'all,

 

I've been curious about something... When I go to Menu then to  Address Book there is a listing labled  "*Now"  with a number of  "*669" just below the entry.   Anyone have a clue what it is?  I know I didn't place it there   :-\

 

My phone is a Samsung Propel.

 

Thankx in advance,

 

B.W.

Thank you,  Wilcre.  I've noticed  the  *Now  on the 3 phones I have but,  never knew what they were for.

 

hoping a warm, happy weekend for you,

I'm sorry, but what do you mean "return" the upgrade availability?  I'm not sure what you mean by "return".

 

Thanks so much. I had no idea what that meant either.

     When you use *NOW, you query the system what the upgrade date is for that line, the system then "Returns" the eligibility date to you.

            Oh, so it does't do anything to your phone; just gives you the information? I'm sorry if I seem so dumb about this.

     Correct and no need to worry about it.
