    And yet the GoPhone TOS clearly says there is NO rollover data for monthly plans which have a data allotment:



    So, why would someone click on a LINK in the TOS to see which monthly plans potentially have rollover data, when the TOS plainly states NO monthly plans with data allotments have rollover data?

    We aren't saying there isn't rollover data. Both lennydude's and my posts with screenshots proves there is -- in addition to the AT&T press release and blog posting. Pomgup merely pointing out the TOS cannot be trusted until it's updated.

    Also brings up the question... If that's wrong, what else is wrong?

    So, any posts only referencing the GoPhone TOS will be considered dubious unless backed up by actual GoPhone customers or some other AT&T source.
    Just realized that GoPhone's rollover data gets added at the end and I'm livid. What a really sneaky way to cheat customers out of data.

    For that reason, in my case the rollover data is completely useless: I'd have to burn the allocated monthly allowance first (I almost never do) to be able to take advantage of that, and besides that the rollover data expires after another period. But all that is explicitly stated in the terms. One needs to read them and realize that the feature is not as good as they make it sound.

    And yet you didn't notice that this thread was started in 2015 ? It makes perfect sense if you think about it, there is no difference in how the data is used in the long run.

    Nothing new here, rollover has always worked this way. Having rollover is a courtesy, you aren't paying extra to have/use it.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    On another large major carrier, they use the rollover first. So if you start with a 5 gb plan, you use 2 gb, you have 3 to rollover. Next month you have 8gb, if you use 2 gb then the following months after you always have 10 gb if the rollover is used first and you rarely use more than the rollover. This may say you have too big of a plan but it may be the smallest plan available.

    I just called customer service and they told me rollover is used first on prepaid. According to this thread this is false?

    It makes a difference because as cctraderx said, if you take 3 months as an example, month 1 , you use 2 of 5gb, month 2 you now have 8gb, if you use 6gb, and the rollover data was used first you would have 2gb to rollover to month 3, if rollover data is used last you would have 0gb to rollover to month 3 because the remaining 2gb in the account would be rollover data which does not rollover again

    According to their website and my present experiences, rollover data doesn't get used first. I wish it did, though.

    Reason enough to consider switching. It basically means rollover data is good every other month.

    Do I use my Carryover Data before I use my monthly data allowance?
    If you're on the new Verizon Plan S-M-L sizes- You'll begin using your Carryover Data after you've used all of your monthly data allowance.

    If you have a qualifying prepaid plan - Your Carryover Data will be added to your account's Available Data. As you use data, it'll be deducted from your overall total for the month.

    Looks like a sweet deal. I'd be all over Verizon Prepaid if their plans included Canada & Mexico roaming. voLTE included in their plans have me on the fence, as it is.
