Carryover/Rollover Minutes Prepaid Phone Plan

Updated November 12, 2013

Rollover or carryover minutes allow you to not lose any unused minutes you may have not used during a certain period with your cell phone carrier. For instance, if you have a plan where you get 500 minutes per month and you only used 100 minutes by the end of your plan's month and you add more minutes to the plan before your plans due date, you get to keep those 400 minutes you did not use plus the new minutes you purchased. Some people like this option and it is a good option especially if you are someone who does not talk much on your phone. 

Tracfone and Net10 both offer plans that offer rollover minutes. With Net10 you can get carryover minutes with a couple of the 30 Day Monthly plans and their Pay As You Go plans all come standard with rollover/carryover minutes.



As you can see from the picture above if you want to have a plan with rollover/carryover minutes, you can select the 500 minutes monthly plan for $30 or the 200 minutes plan for $15.

The Pay As You Go plans all have carryover features. You can not use an Android phone with these plans. You have to have an Unlimited plan to use with Android or iPhones. Buy a Net10 phone that is not an Android phone to get rollover minutes.  You can also purchase phone on Amazon.com.




TracFone is said to be America’s #1 National No-Contract Wireless service provider. We all know they have been in the prepaid cell phone industry for a long time. As a matter of fact, this was the first company I ever heard about selling cell phones without a contract. Net10 is a Tracfone brand so you can't go wrong with either one. The Tracfone plans all come with carryover minutes. To get a great deal with their phones, you will want to make sure you purchase a phone that has Triple Minutes for life. With Triple minutes for life every time you buy one minute, they will give you 2 extra minutes. A 90 minute card will give you 180 minutes when you use it with a Triple Minutes phone.  I don't believe you can go wrong with either Tracfone or Net10. Just compare them both and see what is best for you.
