    On AT&T if I start a call at 8:55pm and remain connected till 9:05pm do all minutes count toward anytime bucket or does it split between anytime and Nights & Weekends?

    I am in an argument with a friend over this. (stupid argument I know)

    Does anyone have a definitive answer?

    No, it doesn't carry over. It has to start right AFTER 9:00 PM.

    I had this same question a long time ago, and I learned the hard way unfortunately. :p

    Nope. It'll count 100% towards your anytime bucket unless you start the call at 9:00:01 or later. Likewise, if you start a call 1 minute before the anytime bucket starts early in the morning, it'll be a free call even after the time for charging starts.

    People talk on the phone?

    P.S. My monthly minute usage never exceeds 60 minutes but still pay for all 450. Got over 8K rollover minutes too.

    That's what started this whole question. I did about 10 minutes of math to figure out that if I made a call to a land line at 6am on a Monday, I could leave the call connected till 9:30am Wed. of the following week before I was charged any overage.

    But this was assuming all minutes were billed "correctly". If what the replies say is true. I could only go 4.5 days or so.

    I know it's silly. I got bored.

    Exactly the point I was gonna make. Although it's nice to text my girlfriend when either one of us is away, it's not the same as talking to her. But we're both on T-Mobile so I don't end up using minutes for that anyway. Basically I barely use any minutes. I wish there was an option to only have 100min or so. I'm paying much more for minutes than I need just because 500 is the minimum I can get.

    For 9 pm conference calls, I've made sure to start calls at 8:59pm or call in earlier, so I can use up my anytime minutes. Otherwise, I hardly use up my anytime minutes at all.

    way too much work coding in logic into a billing system to specify cut off times and to calculate how many minutes of each call count to which billing time

    It will work great if AT&T doesn't drop your call midway through the week, which judging by their service is bound to happen. Also keep in mind they could be doing tower maintenance during the overnight hours that will interrupt your service.
