According to AI sources a new setting could be added to the iPhone's Phone preference that will notify a user if they exceed their monthly Anytime minutes. The overage alert will appear as a push notification (i.e. badge, message, or sound) on the iPhone depending on the user's preference.

Other exclusive features will reportedly come in the form of a new voicemail setting that will allow users to disable the custom voicemail greeting and the AT&T voicemail introduction heard by other users. The feature, presumably to be pitched as a time saver, will also allow users to automatically bypass all greetings and instructions when placing calls to other AT&T customers.
