AT&T Launches Rollover Data for Eligible Customers

AT&T fired another salvo in the ongoing battle between mobile carriers today. Responding to T-Mobile's Data Stash announcement, AT&T launched Rollover Data. Long-time AT&T subscribers will recognize the Rollover concept, which was applied to voice minutes in older calling plans. Rollover Data makes it possible to carry over an unused data allotment into the following month.

This can help prevent overages and additional costs for eligible customers. The Rollover Data is shareable between devices, and will expire at the end of the rollover month if not used. The entire cycle begins again with each billing period. Rollover Data is set to begin on January 25, but what plans are eligible for the feature?

How to Get a Refund from the AT&T and T-Mobile Cell Phone Cramming Settlement

Both AT&T and T-Mobile have negotiated a settlement with the FCC after charging customers for third-party message subscriptions. This practice is also known as "cramming," where carriers add unauthorized charges to a customer's bill for other companies. The charges are normally listed as something innocuous like a $1.99 "service fee" which causes them to go unnoticed on a customer's monthly bill. You may be entitled to a refund for bogus charges if you have ever received daily horoscopes, dieting tips, dating advise, etc. on your cell phone. Here's how to find out if you qualify for a refund from AT&T and T-Mobile:

AT&T agreed to pay $105 million to settle with the FCC. Some of this money will be refunded to customers who apply before May 1, 2015. You can visit this website and enter your email address or phone number to apply for a refund online.
