Earlier this week AT&T introduced a new plan called A-List with Rollover. Select customers will be able to choose 5 “VIP” domestic phone numbers that will have unlimited calling without extra charge. Families will be able to add 10 lines with FamilyTalk. The A-List plan debuts on September 20 and consumers will be able to manage the list at www.att.com/alist.
“This is an incredible value for many of our customers that essentially lets them ‘double dip’,” stated AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets chief marketing officer David Christopher in a press release. “Not only will they not use minutes from their monthly plan when they call their A-List numbers, but our unique Rollover feature means they can keep those minutes for use in future months. Nobody else is going this far in letting customers stretch their minutes. Others may let you save minutes, but only AT&T lets you keep them.”
Individual AT&T customers with a Nation plan of $59.99 or higher can use the A-List with Rollover without consuming additional minutes in their plan. FamilyTalk customers with plans of $89.99 or higher can select ten numbers. The phone numbers can be changed anytime.
