Leaked image reveals Rollover Data is coming to AT&T

When T-Mobile CEO John Legere made his predictions for 2015, he forecast that AT&T would copy T-Mobile's Data Stash. And sure enough, it looks like Legere's prediction will come true. A leaked image featuring actress Milana Vayntrub portraying sarcastic AT&T rep Lilly Adams, indicates that the nation's second largest carrier will soon be offering rollover data.

We don't have any information about AT&T's plan. T-Mobile's Data Stash allows those Simple Choice customers receiving 3GB or 5GB of the sweet stuff each month, to take the amount of unused data and roll it over for use anytime over the next 12 months. To get its subscribers started, T-Mobile gave Data Stash members 10GB of free data. That block of data must be used up completely before the rollover process starts.

AT&T has been sending out memos here and there, hinting that they have some more exciting news to pass along at CES. Rollover data will apparently be one of those announcements. The leaked image comes from one of our loyal readers who remains anonymous because he claims to work for AT&T.

Thanks for the tip!

It looks like the fine print states "unused Rollover Data expires after one month" which I believe T-Mobiles doesn't expire for a long time.

Yes, however, if I have a 10 GB plan and don't use 3,that gives me a buffer to prevent overage on an unusually high usage month. It'll be nice not constantly worrying about changing plans anymore due to a "one off" month.

Exactly what I was about to say. My price options dropped over my grandfathered plan in response to T-Mo's price war, and now my family and I will reap the benefits of T-Mo data war. T-Mobile has almost no service in my rural town, but I am a loyal fan even if I can't be a loyal customer. AT&T may not have been able to purchase them, but they sure are acting like they are in it together.

fortunately this is a win for all.. especially since i was forced into a tiered data plan when my prior unlimited data was throttled after 5 gb...

Yeah all the US carrier's are behind the fourth US carrier in this DATA department now jumping/coping t-mobile. T-Mobile to be the third largest carrier by the end of 2015.

If 2 companies have the same idea at the same time. And one announces first, does the second one be a copycat? How do we know none of other carriers were gonna offer this? Maybe Tmobile just announced first. We don't know all company's product timelines.

You're a special kinda stupid aren't ya? T-Mobile has made several uncarrier moves the past few years, only to be copied by AT&T and Sprint.... yup... they are all flukes and T-Mobile just announces them all first huh? Holy crap it would suck waking up everyday with your brain.

And you're an even more special kind of stupid... AT&T had the term "Rollover Data" trademarked long before T-Mobile announced anything... almost like, ya know, they had the foresight to plan on doing this. It must suck to be an idiot and wake up everyday with your brain and angry fanboyism. Word Mark: Rollover Data Filing Date: 11/25/2014 Serial Number: 86464083

Tmobile's coverage is weak where I roam. Gave them a chance: great prices, decent selection, great CS and speed where it works. Since Gophones received throttled unlimited on the $60 plan(which is faster and more reliable than tmobile 2g), not looking back!!

that's great because that means Verizon will follow suit.

Hopefully... It would also be nice if they did the same with their prepaid that AT&T does with their GoPhone and Cricket. I'll take throttled unlimited any day back on Verizon, but as it sits now, no thanks...

Didnt Cingular use to do this and its bought out by ATT? I still like T-mobile the best! I have good coverage here. Too bad if you dont.

The rollover data will at least prevent most overage related cases. Some people may use say 6-8gb of their 10gb a month plan most of the time, but then might have a month with 12gb. With the rollover data, they won't hae any charges. Still nowhere near as good as Data Stash, I think ATT should have done something else like allot 50% of the unused amount to rollover, but to do for a year like T-Mo does, and they can do other stipulations like lowering the plan can cause loss of rollover data, etc.
