    Re: Watching Bears Game Nearly Cost Chicago-Area Man $27,000

    Anyway, I got home from our cruise, and about two weeks later I got my cell phone/wireless card bill, which is usually about $220, and it said I owe $28,067.31.

    I called AT&T and told them there was either a mistake or fraud and to please take this off the bill. That's where the fun starts. They told me that the bill was correct and somehow I was charged international rates for Internet use, and the cost is 2 cents per kb. That came out to $27,788.93.

    I explained that I was not at sea but in port and my cell phone was still working without roaming, and that I should have still been on my unlimited wireless card. I have since been in contact with five or six different people at AT&T, and the best they could do, even though I am not at fault, is to bring the bill down to $6,000.

    I have confirmation from the cruise line that we were still in port and I provided that information to AT&T.
    Boy AT&T was really trying to screw them.
    As it turns out, the fault was AT&T's and they were able to get it reversed.

    What AT&T did not say is that an AT&T subsidiary, called WMS, provides roaming service on all Royal Carib vessels. WMS's system is not allowed to turn on until 12m beyond U.S. shores according to industry rules. It should not have been operating in the Port of Miami. A handset may show "roaming" on its screen, but a wireless data card may not. The fault here lies entirely with AT&T's WMS subsidiary.

    for those that don't travel often, metro pcs.

    its not every where , but if your don't travel all that often than it doesn't matter , but they are also growing very rapidly.

    i pay $100 month for 2 phones , unlimited minutes, unlimited internet. well pretty much every feature the phones offer is unlimited

    but if your some business tycoon that travels all the time and has to have a blackberry this is not for you

    wow after checking their website they have grown massively in the last couple of years , used to be only cali, atlanta and texas .
