What is 'Overage Pay-Per-Use' showing on ATT mobile app?

I have ATT mobile app installed on my iPhone and got several updates so far.

and now it's showing 'Overage Pay-Per-Use' at the bottom.

I just started my billing cycle yesterday but the Overage amount is already 22!

I've checked usage details on att online account but I couldn't find anything about that.

 

I read an article from the web that says about push notification and Overage Pay Per Use.

Is this really realated to Free Text App using push notification?

I am so afraid of using it now.... Does anybody have an answer?

Is it showing overage for minutes, data, or messaging? Its normal for the beginning of your billing cycle (the first day or so) for it to show an overage for a service you really have.

It's the first billing cycle, sometimes the system is glitched, and doesn't give the correct amount of used minutes. I would wait to recieve the bill before I raised a concearn about it, as it is more than likely not the correct amount.

Thats true, you may just want to call in to customer care just in case to take a look. Doesnt hurt to be safe. 1-800-331-0500.

 'Overage Pay-Per-Use' very much sounds like AT&T MADE UP a new keyword to screw it customers. 

 

AT&T sucks,

 

Corporation GREED at best !!!

 

I can not wait them to go out of business.

Agreed! You all will notice your internet connection will be almost nothing with Internet and youtube viewing especially. Music I understand and downloads will be effected as well. We all paid good money and agreed to the terms now they are changing everything because they want to charge you more money. I just found out!!!! Now I have to wait until my next billing cycle which is around the 13th of the next month! Great way to start the New Year! We have 5 lines on one bill. Time to switch companies! I was wondering if we can file a complaint with the better business bureau? Hummm....
