AT&T Makes It Easy For You to Sue AT&T

By , Nov 16, 2010

That’s a text message I didn’t really expect! Apparently someone is gathering people who may want to be part of a class action lawsuit against AT&T. The strange thing about this is that it’s AT&T themselves who are sending this text message.

After going to the website mentioned in the text message, I learned that the settlement is about AT&T charging improper taxes for internet access through certain services…

If you paid taxes, fees or surcharges (“Internet Taxes”) to AT&T Mobility LLC (“AT&T Mobility”) on internet access through certain services including iPhone data plans, Blackberry data plans, other smart phone data plans, laptop connect cards and pay-per-use data services on bills issued from November 1, 2005 up to and including September 7, 2010, you might be eligible to receive benefits from a class action settlement.

Where there is money, there are lawyers!

I didn’t look more into this because I know AT&T didn’t overcharge me. Maybe some of you would want to try to make a few bucks off AT&T though. If you’re going to be part of this, please let us know how and why in the comments.

    I remember getting this text just a few days back. A few of my friends had actually received the text a while ago, but I didn’t think anything of it until I got the text myself just a couple days ago.

    Why don’t they give all their customers a month of free service?

    I’ve been a “part” of other settlements like this….and they can take YEARS to finish up. The last one I did (I can’t remember..I think it was against Circuit City) but I got a $10 coupon or some crap, and it was only good during certain days, and only after I’d spent over some $100 or more on non-sales crap. WASTE of time. Oh, and Hello spam.

    I hate to go off subject here, but what are you using for your text notification icon? I love the fact that it has the number of texts in the icon itself…

    To get back on subject, I can’t participate because by AT&T account is a corporate account that I don’t pay for.

    I think class action lawsuits are mainly to benefit lawyers and not consumers.

    I received no notification of this lawsuit. However, as someone who moved into a new house on December 7, 2011, and was unable to get phone service until yesterday, 1/17/12, I would be plenty happy to get some money from AT&T. Only thing is, these class action suits are BS and even if this one succeeded, and I was a party, I would receive $3.12 and the lawyers would get millions. Nothing compared to the hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours I have spent trying to get things fixed.
