Prepaid charges when on airplane mode
We had a big problem when we first signed up for the 25c /min prepaid plan. ~70 messages or calls a day! I had to leave phone turned off or on airplane mode. I went back to AT&T shop and they gave me a new number and refunded charges incurred.
I have left the phone on airplane mode unless it is being used. Looking at call log here, I see phone calls have gone to voicemail and there are no charges, However, a text message just received was charged for. Is it right that I would be charged for messages that come in while on airplane mode?
I do have a call blocker installed. It did not catch the above call, presumably because I was on airplane mode? If I had phone on and message was blocked, would I still be charged by AT&T?
After our first bad experience, I am a bit gun-shy about using phone at all!
