    Does Verizon offer roll over minutes?

    I've always understood it as only AT&T but a friend bought a Verizon iPhone & says they now offer roll over. If it's true I'll switch if not I'll stay. TIA

    No rollover, unless it's something brand new and unannounced, but you can get some bonus/overage minutes when you are singing up or upgrading, something like let's say 500 minutes for 1 year, meaning that you have those extra minutes during that one year to use when you go over your regular monthly allowance.

    the only roll over verizon offers is you rolling over your grave when you see their bill.

    Rollover

    Yes, if you go into a corporate Verizon store and try to buy a regular flip phone you will be rolled......over.

    Verizon charges the most but gives you the least amount of any time minutes.

    I think that At&t has the term "rollover" (as it pertains to cell phone plans/features) copyrighted.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    They charge for the "network" rather the minutes.

    Rollover was extremely useful back in the day, but since AT&T came out with A-List and Mobile-to-Any-Mobile it's become very hard to use even a fraction of my anytime minutes, so most of them roll over only to expire after 11 months.

    With Mobile to Mobile and Friends and Family (and we still have 6 unused F&F numbers), we only use about 300-400 minutes a month of the 1400 minutes per month allowance on our 5 line family share plan. Dropping our plan minutes down to the next level would halve our minutes and we would lose F&F, so then we would be in a situation where we would go over the 700 minutes allowance and we would only save $20 a month (before discounts).

    Basically, rollover minutes would be absolutely useless to me.

    True. I don't suggest getting vzw unless the vast majority of people you talk to are actually on vzw or you're happy to cough up 70/month just for unlimited talk.

    I have always found rollover to be a gimmick. Kind of like saying "come to my store and get unlimited free Pepsi when you spend $50" - Well that's fine, but given a person can only consume so much Pepsi per visit, and given Pepsi can be had in sufficient quantity for cheap, it just doesn't have practical value.

    As stated, Mobile-to-Mobile and all of the plans that allow you to add "favorite people" to lists where the usage is not counted, IMO, negate the true value of rollover minutes. It's like you're paying for a plan that gives you too many minutes, and you consider it a value because you have some left over, when the reality is a good plan is one where you're (A) right at your monthly usage and (B) don't care about how much overage because you don't go over that frequently or by that much.

    Verizon's lowest minute plan is 450 minutes. I use my cell phone MAYBE 30 minutes a month. I'm all data on my Thunderbolt, OR I use the calling feature of GMail and just make free calls.
