If you are on a plan with rollover minutes how often do you use your "banked" minutes?
I'm on the cheapest family plan, but since most of our usage is either m2m or n&w we still roll over at least 200 minutes a month. Occasionally rollover minutes are used, its nice to have so we don't have to worry about overage charges on the rare occasion that we go over our minutes.
I used them more than i thought i would. They definitely saved me from going over and getting a big bill quite a few times.
Overall a good feature to have.
Never. I am on the lowest voice plan and have close to 5000 rollover minutes. My average usage for voice in a month is all of about 5 minutes, total. The last couple of months I've used my cell phone a little more for voice, but still I think my highest month has been about 20 minutes. lol.
Sounds like you're a good candidate for prepaid.
lol. Yeah - sort of. The largest issue there is the lack of roaming coverage. In some areas it may not make much difference, but around here I've found the roaming partners actually provide quite a bit of at&t's footprint.
Sounds like a perfect candidate for T-Mobile prepaid They do roam on other networks (in Canada and Mexico too!)
Do they offer data service on prepaid now? Outside of the T-Zones, I mean?
Ultimately I would like to try out T-Mo's service, but I'm waiting to get a device with both at&t and T-Mo 3G first. T-Mo did not used to be very good away from the interstates in my area, but I would like to see how much that may have changed over the last few years.
They now offer several offerings of prepaid data now. I don't know if you can roam with data now though. T-Mobile still isn't as robust as AT&T or VeriZon in rural areas, but they are a lot better than they used to be. Also, T-Mobile's 3G uses different frequencies than AT&T. Their 3G HSPA and HSPA+ is 1700/2100 Mhz as opposed to AT&T's 850/1900/2100 Mhz.
Thanks for the T-Mo update!
I have 13400 roll over mins, I never use them.
