    Can you ask your mobile phone company that question. Personally, I am not familiar with a rolling month contract. Many plans either have or does not have that ability to rollover left over unused minutes from the previous month. For more accurate information is to look at your contract or the contract you are contemplating.

    I can say for myself that I have used a virgin mobile mifi device that you pay as you go. For instance for $10 I get 500 mb that must be used within 10 days of payment. If I have any remaining after the 10 day period, it disappears. I hope that helps you. :)

    Thanks for your reply, I phoned the 3 store and they said they dont know if it does roll over, I also emailed them 2 days ago but
    still have had no reply. I was hoping that someone on this forum is on this or a similar contract.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    As a rule most contracts don't carry over. Surprised the store didn't know, maybe try a different one.

    The closest thing to rollover is an "unlimited" plan but carriers are dropping them fast although most grandfather for the term of your contract.
    Basically it's use it or lose it. At least it is in Canada.
