Facebook Fans in Need of a New Smartphone for the Holidays Have a New Ally

Comedian/Actor Will Arnett as High-Powered Internet Attorney Kent Wesley Makes a Case for Both the "Naughty" and "Nice"

Dallas, Texas, November 28, 2011

Mailing a letter to Santa is not the only way to make your wish lists known this year. This holiday season hire Kent Wesley, played by comedian/actor Will Arnett, to build your case for a new AT&T* smartphone.

In anticipation of the holiday season, AT&T launched “You’ve Got a Case,” a desktop and mobile Facebook application to engage youth customers. The application syncs with Facebook users’ profiles to create a customized case proving to the person of your choice that you deserve an AT&T smartphone. A series of unexpected “expert witnesses” will take the stand on your behalf to help Kent Wesley deliver an argument to a jury of your Facebook friends where every “Like” tips the scales your way.

To start building your case for an AT&T smartphone, visit www.YouveGotACase.com on your PC or mobile phone.

Once you’ve made a case for your smartphone, check in on Santa with Santa Tracker, which returns to AT&T U-verse® TV channel 98 this holiday season. The Santa Tracker app allows families to:

  • Play holiday games
  • Vote in the “Naughty or Nice” poll
  • Play sing-a-longs and read-a-longs for popular holiday music and stories
  • Listen to holiday songs on “Rudolph Radio”
  • And on Christmas Eve, watch real-time reports from the Santa News Network to see if Santa has left the North Pole and track his sleigh as he travels around the globe

The app will be available at no extra cost to all AT&T U-verse TV customers with an AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet account, and is also available in Spanish. You can view a video demo here.

U-verse TV customers will soon be able to access the Yule Tide Log on channel 800, which transforms any room in your home into a cozy scene straight from a holiday greeting card, whether you have fireplace or not.
