    Except for Sprint/Nextel with certain plans, all United States national wireless carriers charge for incoming calls according to what rate period is in effect at the time the call is received. There may be exceptions to this. Other carriers may exempt calls to and from certain numbers from charges. You will have to check the website of regional carriers to see what their policies are.

    If you are with AT&T then calls within the network do not take away from your paid minutes. Only calls to land lines and to other carriers do when you talk during peak hours.

    I wonder what is going to happen when Cell Phone Numbers are released to the public and businesses begin to call with sales calls. Are we going to be charged for those?

    Therefore ATT and other carriers(minus the two exceptions) charge for incoming calls that are not legit(wrong numbers, advertising, crank calls, etc.)? I should think that's sometime you're going to be able to dispute because after recently starting up with ATT, I'm getting calls from strangers who think I'm some Joe that used to have this line. I sure hope Joe was not too popular because all the incoming calls will still be part of my DT minutes.

    I could be wrong, but if you're taking to someone out of your network, at a time that isn't free, it "costs" you your minutes no matter who's calling. Whenever I make or recieve a call, be it voicemail or an hour long phone call, I'm docked minutes. At least that's what I've seen. Anyone?
