    I remember back then AT&T was the first one to offer rollover minute, and now since they are combatting departing customers to T Mobile, I wonder if they are going to offer rollover data plan for customers

    advantage for rollover data plan
    1. obviously if consumers are rolling over data, that means their data plan is more than what they need, so that means more revenue for AT&T on that delta
    2. based on my experience in roll over minute, because of point 1 (more data supply than data consumption), then rollover data bank usually never used up to zero, hence it's just a marketing

    what do you think?

    Interesting concept, but I don’t see this ever happening. The service providers make too much money on data services... why give it away?

    And how do you rollover "unlimited" data?

    You can't roll over unlimited. That wouldn't make sense.

    That was rhetorical/facetious.

    Or how about a "data bank" concept.... every month you'd pay for an allowance to be added to your data bank... when it reached a mutually agreed upon top cap you could not have to pay for data again until you run your bank down to a minimum balance...

    To be honest, I don't think that AT&T has to fight back T-Mobile. Their latest "Uncarrier" promotion isn't much if a promotion at all. I tried them out briefly a few months ago and I didn't like it. People are drawn to the $0 down and unlimited data for $70. What they don't know is that you are paying a monthly fee for your phone on top of the $70 plus about $10-$11 in insurance every month. So if you get a high end phone you could be paying $100-$110 per month and that's not including taxes. The premium goes down $20 for the next line and another $20 for the line after that. But you are still paying a lot for T-Mobile service. I don't know if they do company discounts either. With their new plans, I would be paying around $340 per month for 4 phone lines and a tablet. I pay $360 to AT&T now for 10GB of data instead of unlimited. We have never gone over our cap so obviously we don't need unlimited. And I get a better network and a bigger phone selection.

    At the stores here in Denver, we're not really seeing any change with the T-Mobile deal. We're still switching people out of T-Mobile daily.
