Re: This Day and Age

I only hope that Adam is a big enough celeb that can really do something to fight them on this and maybe get something done about it for good.

Godspeed Mr. Savage

He'll get a call and refund within 24 hours I bet, speaking to the power of the Tweet (and blogs). But I dunno if they'll improve this system any.

I completely agree. The squeaky wheel and all that ...

AT&T just e-mailed me to note they're already working with him.

I plan to inquire why they can't improve the high bill notification system for a future bit.

Good plan! Thanks Karl.

Ride on Savage's coattails and get this system better for all... Sad that it should come to this to make a difference.

Still if it helps, then it can be good.

Ya know some how I am not surprised it was him not another mythbuster.

Verizon has this:

I get an email (as company administrator) when my BB or Aircards get to 90% of the data limit. So I get emails at 200MB or so onthe 250 MB card and 4.something GB on my 5 GB cards.

ATT should do the same....but then they won't get all the yummy overage fees.

But when is that? I mean is it the second you hit 200 or 4.something GB? Or is it 12 hours later? Could the user go check that themselves?

See what we're getting at here? The systems are designed to trap the end user into paying for overages. Always.

This is no different than those payday advance places: they prey on the ignorant and uninformed. Shameful, really.
