I broke this ugly story over Apple and AT&T last year:
exposing the AT&T and Apple DATA leakage scam or, ATT And Apple Battle Over Data Leakage
Life and business are a cautionary tale in terms of what you don’t know is what can kill you.
How many of you on the AT&T network find yourselves holding both an iPhone and the proverbial bag each month with your billing statement data usage fees?
Read on. The first article below discusses data usage and the cost. The author evidently wants to blame Apple and it’s iPhones. He is partially correct, to be fair. If you complain to AT&T they point the finger. Then if you call Apple they point out that the problem is known but Verizon somehow resolved it. Maybe the issue is with CDMA as opposed to GSM devices.
Or, perhaps AT&T simply likes gouging it’s customers relentlessly with excessive data usage fees that expose a critical lack of customer care.
I hope this post helps readers make an informed decision. Read between the lines. Investigate. See the truth. Beware. Don’t tolerate being cheated. Hold everyone accountable as you hold yourself. That’s being responsible.
I dare you.
http://lnkd.in/d73ZZCB : The author and article missed a HUGE opportunity. The real story with all of this is “data leakage”. The problem might be unique to iPhones. Interestingly, Verizon may have fixed the problem that Apple would not, and AT&T does not want to because of the obnoxious fees it generates for the company.
