    Cingular Wireless will allow your night minutes to start at 7pm for
    seven dollars extra per phone per month. This is the only instance of
    N/W starting at 7 in US that I have heard of. Companies in Canada have
    nights running from 6pm to 8am, and all day on holidays.

    I have 7PM-7AM nights with Verizon:)
    Verizon continued 7PM nights after merging with GTE on the west coast
    for some time, around Y2K.

    Because I have wasted more time than I care to admit reading about cell
    phone offerings the world over, at least the English-speaking world, here's
    some from Canada's offerings:

    First. The thing that I always note with US versus Everyone Else is the wide
    and cheap availability of nationwide long distance.

    Second. Unlimited, or effectively unlimited, night and weekend calling.
    Another feature prominent in the US but not nearly so elsewhere.

    Both T-Mobile and Orange, in the UK, have a pricing structure that is wholly
    alien to what the US has. Plans are broken into three main categories:
    All Off-Peak.
    All mobile-mobile.
    All mobile networks, anytime.

    Contrast this to how US cellular plans are sold:
    Gobs of off-peak.
    Inclusion of cheap intra-carrier minutes.
    Ability to call any provider's network, or a landline, without
    differentiation.
    It doesn't matter who you call, when, or at what time as the plans are
    generalized and non-specific.

    But off-peak begins at 7pm for Orange and 6pm for T-Mobile UK.

    In Canada, the plans are much more expensive -- if you primarily call long
    distance. Fido, the cheapest Canadian carrier (GSM-based, limited coverage
    compared to Rogers or Telus). For CDN$45, they have 1000 minutes total. 200
    peak, 800 off-peak. Long distance is extra, at 7.5 cents CDN per minute.

    But nights on Fido run from 7pm to 8am -- the most generous night and
    weekend range I've ever seen.

    Point of this all is that while the 9pm night and weekend allotments really
    screw customers on the west-coast, the cheap service and included
    long-distance go a long way compared to the service offerings in other
    countries.

    Many smaller carriers in this region are *much* more generous in their night
    and weekend times. But they do so at the expense of long distance.
    Long-distance is almost always exclusive of ample night and weekend minutes.

    Midwest Wireless has 7-7 night and weekends. But long distance is extra.
    Western Wireless d/b/a Cellular One is something of an exception. At plans
    of $40 and higher, nationwide long distance is included, but so is an 8pm
    starting time for nights.

    So that's my spiel.

    Starting July 13th Western Wireless included nationwide long distance on all
    plans $30 or higher and any $20 plan partnering with a $30 or higher plan.
    Nights start at 8 pm, basic voicemail is now free. Unlmited nights and
    weekend on all plans $35 or higher or partnering with a $35 or higher plan.
    They also include 1000 mobile to mobile minutes with any plan $30 or higher
    for $0 with a 1 yr contract extension.

    But with Western Wireless, the default contract terms state that the
    secondary line will deplete only anytime minutes from "the bucket". I
    know quite a few peopel who have had that happen. And if your local
    store won't deal with it and refer you to call the 800 # or 611, you may
    as well ask Verizon to straighten out your CellularOne or Western
    Wireless issues, because they can probably do better.

    Wrong, every partner plan includes its own night and weekend minutes. It
    only shares the anytime minutes of the main plan. If you have a problem with
    your bill you can call the 800 number or come into a retail store and the
    rep will help you personally.

    For Sprint, 7 PM N&W for $7/month tends to be offered in the Central and
    Pcific Time zone markets. In other cases, you can get your nights and
    weekends to start at 8 pm for free, if you renew your contract.
