Rollover minutes are limited to ATT postpaid wireless plans ($$). If you are looking for getting by on the cheap, you might want to consider prepaid instead of postpaid since you have already stated you are home most of the time, using your landline presumably. Why enter into a 2 year contract if you don't need to use so many minutes(?). Prepaid would be cheaper, and would let you refill for up to one year 12 months in advance @ $100. Luckily there are a whole slew of prepaid options, and also phones to match. First figure out what carriers give the best service at your location. If you can't get a signal even prepaid is useless.
If your budget permits and you want to pull the trigger, then I'd first look at how much per month you can afford to pay for a post-paid plan that does include rollover minutes. It will be in the neighbor hood of $39.95 + taxes and fees, plus the cost of the handset.
I think it's time for me to buy a cell phone and I've seen so many and there are so many contracts....it's impossible...ugh
I need a phone if I go by train and need some one to pick me up. I have a land phone and laptop at home.
I don't travel that much any more as I'm retired and the economy is such that we are home a lot more.
I need a phone with rollover minutes and I'll pay for more when I need them.
Any suggestions would be good and appreciated.
