It appears that the biggest wireless carrier in the United States is cooking up something really major -- at least, according to an image from a Verizon Wireless test website that The Consumerist spotted. The image suggests that the Big Red is planning to offer a rollover type of service that lets mobile users make use of unconsumed data with them to the succeeding month.
T-Mobile's prepaid customers under a Simple Choice plan will soon be able to take advantage of the carrier's data rollover program. That is because the carrier will officially start to make Data Stash available to Simple Choice prepaid customers this coming Sunday, March 22nd.
AT&T just introduced a new limited-time only rate plan that will provide its customers with 7 gigabytes of data that can be shared on a monthly basis. This new Mobile Share Value plan will also include the carrier's Rollover Data, as well as unlimited calls and unlimited text messaging. It will officially launch on February 15th and will be made available to all current and new customers.
T-Mobile customers have just been handed a way to purchase high-end mobile devices much easier, even without the use of a subsidy. T-Mobile recently announced a new program called Score which allows its subscribers to unlock deals on every handset sold by the major wireless carrier.
It seems that AT&T and T-Mobile are not the only wireless carriers offering rollover data schemes. C Spire Wireless actually did it earlier in November of last year when it introduced rollover data on three new plans.
But now, the carrier has announced that it will be making its rollover data shareable between multiple lines on the one plan. C Spire Wireless will be making the new shareable rolling data available at no additional cost on its 10 gigabyte, 15 gigabyte, and 30 gigabyte shared data plans starting on January 19th.
A month ago in December, T-Mobile announced its Data Stash program, wherein subscribers can carry over unused data from one month to the next one. It has only been a few days since this program has taken effect, and now AT&T is launching Rollover Data, its answer to T-Mobile's program.
Like T-Mobile's offer, AT&T's Rollover Data lets subscribers save their leftover data after each billing cycle. The plan will be launched on January 25th, and will be open to all subscribers under AT&T's Mobile Share Value plans.
