Except if you're paying automatically via credit card. In which case, you are charged two days shy of the 90 days-- and your new 90 day period begins from then!! In other words, you lose 2 days every 90 day period! We've figured out that we're two weeks out of pocket thanks to this nefarious practice! That doesn't amount to a huge amount of money, but it's galling. When c...

Zandora, I'm not protesting at all! That was a comment in reference to asatoran's post! Instead, I was making an observation about a corporate misuse of language that also happens to reveal its avaricious charging practices, but I've obviously struck a raw nerve (acceptance of cell phone and corporate pricing policies and dictates). Yes, the quarter was returned when you ...

Methinks you're protesting too much! (Your crude and patronizing language at the end is the tip-off!) Check your unabridged dictionaries for the definition of toll-free... and maybe next time you won't shout, " NO " and " NOT " but graciously accept an interesting insight into the mis-use of language. I think you've fallen for the new world mentality in which cellular com...

It's much the same shock for those of us new to the cell phone world to discover that BOTH cell phones are charged when making calls. That took a long time for extended family members to wrap their brains around--and it still smacks of double-charging. But back to the language... "toll" is a charge, a fee, a payment, or a levy... so "toll-free" = "no charge". In the old d...

In a classic example of DoubleSpeak, cell phone users are charged for making 1-800 calls. I'm sure this is old news to you all, but as someone relatively new to the cell phone world, I was surprised to see a charge on our prepaid bill for such a call. I couldn't find info about that in the descriptions of the calling plans and rates, but customer service referred me to th...

Well, we've confirmed through actual real-life experimentation and use that we're not being charged. At least our phones are reporting 0 as the phone call charge and the reported balance matches that, too! Why, oh, why, AT&T couldn't just come out and say "On this plan, there is no charge per minute for calls to another ATT cell phone" The problem with their "unlimited tal...

But you will have to pay the $1/day connection charge! So it's not entirely free! Now, the question I have, is where does it say that mobile to mobile calls with Pay as You Go are FREE???! I can't find that anywhere! Also, are there any time of day restrictions on the supposedly free mobile to mobile? In the past, there apparently were on some AT&T plans. We have two of th...
