You must provide your own phone.  Once you have properly text-messaged the Official Entry Code to the promotional phone number, you will receive a reply via text messaging requesting age confirmation. You will then receive a second text requesting your zip code. Once you have responded to the age and zip code confirmation texts, you will receive a final reply via text message confirming your entry into the Sweepstakes and providing a link to the Official Rules.    Important Notice: Your wireless service provider may charge you for each text message you send and receive.  Standard text message rates apply.  Other charges may apply.  Please consult your wireless service provider regarding pricing plans.  You must be a wireless service subscriber with text messaging service, using a participating service provider in order to enter via this method.  Not all cellular phone providers carry the necessary service to participate.  Check your phone capabilities for specific text messaging instructions. Entrants may opt-out at any time by texting STOP to 30364, text HELP for help.  In the event the winner is selected from a text message entry, the prize will be awarded to the “authorized account holder” associated with the given wireless telephone number used to enter the Sweepstakes by sending a text message.  The “authorized account holder” for text messaging entrants is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a wireless telephone number by a wireless service provider.  Proof of being the “authorized account holder” may be required by the winner and dependent upon Sponsor satisfaction.
