Night and Weekend Minutes

Do they not kick in if your call starts before 9pm? I am a new Cingular subscriber (yeah, I know, the rollover minutes seduced me), and I was shocked to see a 58 minute call logged to my daytime minutes. The call had begun at 8:53 and I assumed that logically at 9:00 my nighttime minutes would kick in. Naturally, this is not the case and I ate up 1/7th of my total monthly anytime minutes on this one call. Do other wireless carriers keep you on daytime minutes for calls that begin before 9 and extend on past 9?

In a follow up note, I was able to get 40 "courtesy minutes" for my trouble, but I wasn't reimbursed for the full 51 minutes lost to their foolish system.
Has this happened to anyone else?
As a secondary question: what kind of penalties are generally involved in switching phone companies if I wanted to ditch Cingular?
