    I have seen ads lately from AT&T touting that Verizon and other networks you loose your minutes at the end of each month were we have rollover...


    My question is, how come Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc doesn't create their own version of rollover? I mean other companies create their own version of the iPhone..

    I have wonder that as well but lets face it for most of us the roll over minutes are near completely useless. I can not even think of the last time I dipped into them and I am on the lowest plan. We have so many free minutes now that it is almost a non issue.

    Now I had 2k minutes used last month. Of those 2k+ minutes on my cell only 60 of them were anytime. The rest were either mobile to Mobile or N&W

    There is no copyright issue. There might be a trademark issue if they called them "rollover" minutes. Like Rodimus says, though, it's kind of a cheap ploy. I don't know if I've ever used any rollover minutes. On the other hand, it's nice to know that I won't ever be socked with a bill for $.40/min overage charges like my sister was once with Verizon. I think she went 300 minutes over and got hit with a $120 surcharge.
