    No, which is just fine with me because it makes no sense. How would rollover benefit you?

    This is what I think of it. If I use 500 minutes a month on average then a 450 minute plan won't do, so I get the 700 minute plan. Well I accumulate all these rollover minutes over a year, and would like to use them, but how? I could start talking more I guess, or give them away to someone. If I want to downgrade back to the 450 minute plan then I lose all my rollover minutes.

    This seems like such a gimmick to me, there's a reason why they are the only big carrier in the US that does it.

    i have 2100 min family plan. some months i use 1700 others i use 2200. I would never go over if i had rollover. I wouldn't change my plan i would just have the security of the extra minutes.

    Sounds like you have an old Family Plan. You should change it to one of the current NationWide plans with Friends & Family. You could probably drop down to 1400 with F&F.

    i have friend and family. I used to have the 3000 minute plan. I save $50 a month with friends and family. I would just like the rollover for the months that have more weekdays in it like this one.

    It is a gimic My brother had AT&T before making the switch to Verizon (yay) and they never used them. Friends and Family is a better deal in my opinion I just wish it was also for the 450 min plan. I don't use all my minutes. Everyone I know has Verizon except for a couple and we text more than talk !

    Single line plans with 900 minutes or more are given 5 friends and family numbers, and family shared plans with 1400 minutes or more are given 10 F&F numbers.

    Rollover minutes are like the leftovers in the fridge that nobody liked the first time around.

    The F&F 10 numbers is a nice feature.

    The Unlimited Talk plan (with Verizon-to-Verizon and Friends & Family baked in) will run for $69.99 while upgrading to Unlimited Talk & Text (SMS and MMS) will hit you for an additional $20 a month. You can also grab 450 minutes for $39.99 or 900 minutes for $59.99, with the same $20 upgrade for unlimited texting (otherwise you can pay $1.99 per text). All plans are available as a pre-paid option, though it will cost $5 more and you loose Friends & Family.

    Unlimited family plans will start at $119.99 for just voice and $149.99 a month if you want texting thrown in as well. Each line thereafter will run for $49.99. Dont want unlimited chatting? You can also grab a family plan with 700 shared minutes for $69.99, 1400 minutes for $89.99, and 2000 minutes for $99.99. Upgrading to unlimited texting will cost an additional $30, but each additional line for the not-unlimited plans will run only $9.99 instead.

    F&F is BY FAR more usefull than rollover! With that said... rollover just makes sense on a logical standpoint. They're your minutes... loosing them would be the gimmic (again, on a logical standpoint). But I wouldn't trade F&F for it any day of the week.

    I highly doubt that VZW will offer rollover minutes, then again if they do offer it, then AT&T will really be scrambling to look for a way to get more customers in the fold

    Friends & Family is much better in my opinion. You must have minutes left over each month in order to have minutes that will roll over, with the roll over plan.
    Friends & Family allow you to talk as much as you want with landline or cell phones. You can also edit those numbers within a billing cylcle as well. It takes a day for the changes to go into effect. You can get more talk time per month if you know how to use Friends & Family, in comparison to saving minutes each month so you can build up your minutes with roll over.

    Roll over minutes are stupid and useless.
    They roll over because you don't use them, so more than likely you aren't going to use them the next month or the next month after that. &after a year they go bye bye!

    not all plans have the F&F
    so rollover would be useful for the 450 or 700 minute plans.

    But the fact is even without rollover minutes if you are close on your minutes & know you are going over Verizon will adjust your plan mid cycle to prevent overage. They also offer one time in 12 months to have your overage charges wiped for the VIP program.

    I had one month I was close to going over & called them to talk about options. The rep just gave me an extra 200 minutes for free. So why have rollover when they have such great customer service?
