Shame on AT&T—that's an enormous caveat there for sure, giving the rolled-over data a one-month expiration date. Kudos to T-mobile for staying ahead of the game. They even start you off with 10 GB in the "bank"!

No problem. Just call AT&T and tell them you don't wish to participate. Problem solved.

Meanwhile, T-Mobile's rollover program also goes into effect this month. The Data Stash offering allows any customer with plans featuring 3GB of monthly data or more to roll over unused data to the next month. That rolled-over data gets stored for the following 12 months. In addition, new and existing customers get an initial 10GB of free data for the "stash" to kick things off, and that bonus data lasts through 2015.

Do you think AT&T will follow suit or leave their one-month expiration?

Let's wait and see what Verizon does. If Verizon starts providing data rollover as well, and with a 12-month expiration just like T-Mobile's, then AT&T will stick out like a sore thumb and [hopefully] consider doing the 12-month thing as well.

I suspect that AT&T will modify their program to more closely follow that of T-Mobile.

When a new month begins, what data are you burning first - the rollover, or the new monthly allocation??

The new monthly allocation. It works the same as AT&T rollover minutes only they expire sooner. With the minutes and the data, you only start using your rolled over credit once the current monthly amount is gone.

Verizon would probably change their tune if they start experriencing a slow down in new suscribers and a loss of current ones.
