    If you start a call at, say, 8:57PM and it is a 30 minute call, are you charged for 30 anytime minutes or are you charged for 3 anytime minutes and 27 night/weekend minutes?

    call is rated according to when it begings. In this case, 30 anytime minutes. Wait until 9:01 pm :D

    I had heard that over at HoFo but wanted it confirmed by someone at WA. That kind of sucks but at least I know about it before hand. My Samsung E315s shipped today. I'll have 'em by Friday. :D

    Matt, is this T-Mobile's method? I know with Verizon, I've began calls before 9PM, and once it hits 9:01, my minutes become Off-Peak. :confused:

    That's how it works, but I haven't tested it. I don't have/need nights on my plan. OTOH, make a call at 6:59 am and talk all day for free :D

    I have the 1000 anytime minutes, and although my bill splits the call minutes by time period, it really doesn't make any difference. I think it's more for reference purposes. The nice thing about the plan is that I don't have to clock watch with it.

    :lmao: LOL, I don't know that I'll be using all that many anytime minutes so I think I'll be okay... I will keep that in mind, though. :)

    Cingular does this too. Once it hits 9pm, billing creates another line on my bill, just like I made a second call, and starts N&W minutes. I think it's cool.....and the right thing to do.

    I agree but unfortunatly, T-Mobile doesn't do it... I imagine they eventually will, however. Most carriers didn't used to do it that way but most of them have migrated to charging you for the correct time period the minutes are used in no matter when you started the call. Hopefully, T-Mobile will, too! :)

    this can be good and bad, though. For me it's good, because I receive a lot of calls right before 9 and my VZW account automatically switches to Nights at 9.01...but for people that like to make long calls early in the morning right before their nights end and talk long into peak hours, might not like this idea.

    I looked at the fine print of ther ad in the Wash Post today- and it does state that the call is rates based on when it begins. night/weekends, m2m, and anytime - in that order as applicable.
