    Is there any data that uses minutes? I am very confused...

    I barely use my phone to talk, it is about 85% texting, e-mail and safari.

    I checked my minutes, and it says that my overage minutes for this month are 145, and that I have 4667 n/w minutes remaining.

    I absolutely KNOW that I did not use up all my day time minutes this month, or have even come close. I use maybe 5 minutes a day max, and have the 450 minute plan.

    How the hell could I be over by 145 minutes, and how much will this cost? I am positive it is an error, but now I have to wait till monday to call at&t

    There's no data that uses your minutes, other than phone calls...

    Also, I was lucky to get a phone with no problems, no issues, no crashes, and very few dropped calls. I am running 2.0.1 and it has been great since the day it was released. But lately the phone has been VERY sluggish, even though I do a hard reset every morning.

    SMS takes about 10-15 seconds to open, contacts takes even longer before I can select or scroll, safari has been crashing constantly, I have been missing SMS's, and when I lose service (theres a dead spot a block from me since I live between two sand dunes on the Lake Michigan lakeshore; there are 5 bars either side of the dunes and at my apartment), it takes over 10 minutes to regain signal, even if I put airport mode on then off. If I reset the phone it finds the network instantly.

    ALL these problems started happening the day 2.1 was released.

    I had a great experience up until now, and am honestly getting quite upset with the damn phone, AND AT&T

    If you dont have a data plan then using data can use minutes in some cases. Some old MMS plans charged minutes instead of data, for example.
