Any word on whether there will still be rollover minutes??

Is it safe to assume that the Rollover feature will stay intact with the change back over to the AT&T name? It WAS Cingular's exclusive feature prior to its merger with AT&T a couple of years ago.

yes, nothing is changing except the name

Who cares? Rollover is one of the biggest "scams" in the wireless industry, why not get a plan that will cover you? Who the f is always under one month, over the next? GET A HIGHER PLAN!!

Well, I for one, prefer the rollover as I am one of the few I suppose who do not use all their min a month. I like the roll over. I have the cheaper plan cos cannot afford the higher where you can get free nights and weekends. I hope they keep rollover.

Rollover will be kept... the plans will not change at all.

Because you seem to not understand let me do the math for you...

Suppose you have a VERIZON plan for 1K or even something smaller...lets say 700 minutes and god forbid there was a family emergency or you were out of town or what have you or whatever the case may be...picking on Verizon bc they dont have it here.

Alright so you happen to go over your minute usage and Verizon charges you say what $230 phone bill for that month...well sure they can fix it if you change your plan higher and sign another 2 year agreement or you get stuck with the bill...its that simple and yes it happened to me. I can now be on a shared 550 plan with Cingy/ATT and actually use my phone without going over bc I have 3k already rolled over...long story as to w...

TradeMark, why must you continue to make useless and biased comments on this topic?

The truth of the matter is that there are millions of customers who value the Rollover feature highly (myself being one of them) and find it to be the farthest thing from a "scam." You can certainly be on the "right" plan and still utilize Rollover. I can tell you right now, I'm not one to use exactly 850 anytime minutes each month. Sometimes I use more, sometimes I use less. It's those times when I use more that I'm grateful I have Rollover.

If it were truly a scam, the feature would not be in such high demand that Cingular has not decided to drop it in the seven years of its existence.

I don't recall rollover being around for seven years. In fact, Cingular hasn't been around for seven years. I'm not debating if its a good or bad (and I agree with you that it is).

Sorry, I meant six years...I got my dates mixed with Verizon (which was formed in 2000).

It was either six or five years...Rollover was introduced fairly soon after Cingular was formed.

Any way you look at it, it's stood the test of time (in the wireless industry).

I see peoples bills everyday, and plenty of users have everchanging usage. It's hardly a scam. What exactly is the scam?

I like rollover minutes because during the slower winter months where I don't use my minutes, I can bank them away for the summer months when I use a lot more minutes.

I have 2000 minutes accomodated from my previous plan. Now I have a plan for 450 minutes a month. I can yap for 2450 minutes with no additional cost. Where is the scam?

Get a higher plan??? You want me to pay more? Shocked

Maybe TradeMark is rich enough to pay for all of us to have higher rate plans....

Hey, I wouldn't mind another 400min... for free...

TradeMark, should I send you my paypal address so you can pay me the extra $20/month?

It sounds like someone is bitter because they couldn't get rollover...couldn't pass Cingular's credit check?
