    Just polling iPhone owners, and was wondering if you've used more rollover minutes since purchasing your iPhone, or have you found yourself emailing, and texting more often to save those precious minutes?

    I've actually accrued more rollover minutes (6,537 minutes) since purchasing (3) iPhones and (1) BB for my Family Plan Members.:cool:

    I use the SMS more than voice. I suspect I'm not alone which is why ATT unbundled SMS from the data and doesn't offer Rollover SMS. At it's core SMS is data, and a lot smaller than even an email. It's, however, more addictive, and a big profit center.

    No poll option for 1K-2K..

    I have about 1350. I came from Verizon for the iPhone, so the rollover thing was new for me. I have a 900 minute plan, and typically only use about 4-500 of those (also, I have no land line at home, this is my only phone). However, I have apparantly done a lot of talking this month and blew out my 900 and am biting into those rollover minutes for the first time. Most months though, I just don't use the phone that often.

    I know, I caught the mistake, b/c I meant to put a + next to 1000 and it wouldn't let me...:eek:

    Do rollover minutes still stay if you change your plan? Like if I downgrade a family plan from 2100 minutes to 1400 or whatever, will I still have all my rollover minutes, or will they go away? :(

    I have 450 minutes a month. I have 450 minutes left over from the past 12 months. However, after complaining to AT&T about something, they gave me an extra 500 rollover minutes.So technically I would be 50 minutes over now if I wasn't credited those 500 minutes.

    0, Zilch, Nada, Zippo LOL

    I used to have quite a few, but then my daughter decided she needed to start talking more than she already does :p

    I'll be increasing my plan as soon as I get the new phone.

    I only have 600 and something, but my account says that 83 will expire. Not sure how the system works, so I can't complain.

    You'll probably lose anything over the 1400 minute plan. For example, if you have 1500 rollover minutes, they'll adjust your account to 1400 minutes. Normal Standard Operating Procedure for AT&T.:(

    the rollover minutes goes by 12 month cycle. So if your account says 83 minutes will expire, it means that 83 minutes left over from 07/07 will expire. Next month whatever you had for rollover on 08/07 will also expire.

    Since most of the people I talk to are on AT&T, I use less than half of the 450 minutes every month. I have accrued around 2500 rollover minutes.

    Basically, rollover minutes are set up on a 12 month cycle; so let's say you have 2500 R/M's and you approach your 13th month (we'll use July as your 13th month) with AT&T, and you haven't used up the 325 R/M's from July of '07, then that 325 minutes will be subtracted from 2500 = 2,175 + whatever rollover minutes you will receive for July '08, let's use 525 + 2175 = 2700 as your new current rollover minute total. Hope this isn't too confusing...:p
