    LOL! I thought I was bad with the 4500 I'll never use! The first phone company to offer a plan WITHOUT VOICE gets my business the moment it happens.

    no additional cost?? I havent heard of this

    im on a family plan with 4 lines, so each number that we put on an A-List can be talked to unlimited by anyone on these 4 lines?

    I signed up for this today, i have a family plan with 1400min

    So now basically i can add 10 numbers and have rollover time add up that i will never use.

    This would have been much better if they scaled down the qualifactions. I only have 2 lines on a family plan and we dont use the 1400 as it is.

    I signed up for this and canceled the early nights & weekends for 8.99. I've had it since I started with ATT and I have 3100 rollover minutes so Im thinking with the five main #s I call being free (families on sprint, just cant beat the pricing) i have no need for early N&W.

    Anybody else doing that? And what time does regular N&W start on ATT?

    No it does not. It's just an additional five numbers, landline or mobile from any carrier that u can call for free. I have my family on a sprint family plan with 4 phones, they already call me for free with Sprints any mobile plan, now I can do the same without using my minutes.

    they put it in the fine print somewhere so you're not allowed to do this. saying that all five numbers need to be a 'real' person and not a computer (or something like that).

    i'm not sure how they are enforcing this, though.

    This a burn to Verizon. They were using this as their leverage towards rollover minutes. Haha. :D

    Yeah maybe so but neither fave fives or rollover minutes beats Sprints any mobile IMO. Think about it, how often do u actually call a landline? I went thru my families last bill before the any mobile plan started and estimate that they'll go from 1200 minutes to maybe 400. They can triple they're talk time and still not come close to going over! Works for me lol

    Never say never. I had 5,000 rollover minutes in May and over the course of the summer (3 months) while my girlfriend was out of state I used 4,800 of them. I'm just saying they're a very nice thing to have when you need them, I'm very appreciative that AT&T offers rollover minutes.

    I'm in the same boat. Have like 3,000 minutes rollover never used. Then this; I've added all the numbers I usually call. Now I can accumulate more minutes I don't use. So by the end of the year I'll have 10,000 minutes unused. :eek:

    That is for family share plans with 1400 minutes or more.
