Re: How?

I believe this totally. We opened a third cell line to leave at the house in emergencies. This phone was not turned on at all and had no data package on it, I was billed for several data transactions. I called AT&T and they corrected the issue and issued credits to my account. The saving grace for me was the phone was never turned on since I got the sim card since it was a back up card. But of course they acted like they were doing me a favor to fix the issue. I had to put a data block on the account to stop these charges. Something is not right on their end with this data billing.

Turn your data off. Settings > Network > Enable 3G > off
Cellular Data > Off.

Simple as that

So I should let all of my friends know who are on tiered data plans to turn their data OFF when not in use? That's absurd. This seems like an issue with AT&T's billing system. Maybe it's an issue with an iPhone, but from the sound of these comments, many non-iPhone users have seen this happen before.

How would that fix Shoan's problem if his phone was never on?
