Since becoming a Silver I've had no trouble calling and asking for an exit row seat assignment. They've always given it to me if it was available, and on one trip recently that my parents and two siblings were traveling with me on, I was able to get everyone an exit row seat.

Before I was an elite I was unable to get exit row seats assigned before check-in at the airport.
I had never tried to get exit row/bulkhead seats prior to check-in, but I just called the elite reservations number and got my girlfriend (no status) and I (Silver Elite) bulkhead one-way (row 7 on a 757-200) and an exit row (row 21 on an MD-80) on the return. The agent asked if we were both "exit row qualified".

Make sure not to get the first row of an exit row pair as the seats do not recline (I think row 15 on a 757-200 and row 20 on an MD-80)...
