When do minutes restart? And also text glitch?

I have 2 questions basically. First one is, I have the unlimited mobile to mobile pay as you go plan. My dollar gets deducted the next day around 9AM-12PM. Somewhere between that time frame. My question is, when is your time up for that day? Let me give an example, Let say I'm talking around 11:30PM on a Thursday, and I don't finish until 1AM on a Friday. Does that mean that I will get deducted a dollar on Friday and Saturday since It's officially the next day on Friday when i was still using my cell phone? Does anyone know how long you can talk into the next day without it deducting another day for the day after? Do you guys get it?

Second question, My expiration date for my unlimited text was 10/02/08, and it is the 3rd today, and i text someone just for kicks and it didnt deduct any money from me even though my text message plan expired. I dont want to buy another unlimited plan if i still have some left for this one? Does anyone know if they deduct you the moment the text is sent or the next day or what? Thank you very much.

I have no personal experience with your first situation, but typically AT&T bills everything per the call origination time, so your call would be considered a Thursday usage, not Thursday & Friday.

Text is typically deducted right away, maybe it was a glitch that you weren't charged.

      Your time is up for the day at midnight, any use of the phone after that and you are billed for the usage for both days.
