That is unbelievable. I'm sure he has a legal case if he wants to pursue it.

He does not. His only recourse is to leave AT&T. (Which I highly recommend!)

AT&T's Wireless Customer Agreement requires a data plan for smartphones:

6.3 What Are The Voice And Data Plan Requirements?

A voice plan is required on all voice-capable Devices, unless specifically noted otherwise in the terms governing your plan.

An eligible tiered pricing data plan is required for certain Devices, including iPhones and other designated Smartphones.

Aren't all contract disputes bound to ATT's arbitration courts?

It depends. In 2008 (when he says he bought his phone), was AT&T requiring data on Smartphones.

If someone had a contract from before this clause existed and never upgraded or even contacted AT&T at all the only valid contract would be the one they signed. That contract may not have that clause so he may be able to actually sue them.

They are banking on people taking the latest contract as the one you are bound to. But if the original never included such language and you never signed another one you can't be held to it.

When you go month-to-month, the provider is entitled to change the terms on you at any time. He would be covered by the latest version of the Customer Agreement.
