Lawsuit Alleges AT&T Overcharges iPhone and iPad Customers for Data

A new lawsuit alleges that AT&T is overcharging iPhone and iPad customers on almost every single data transaction.
After hearing a lot of complaints, lawyers say they spent $80,000 testing several devices using different carriers over a period of months, including four iPhones and iPads. They say they found that AT&T systematically overstated the amount of data use on virtually every transaction. That can add up to overcharges for millions of consumers.
Attorney Barry Davis likens this situation to a rigged gas pump. An independent computer firm was hired to precisely measure data use. They found AT&T was systematically overcharging for data by 7% to 14% for every single transaction.

    It is not only Iphone/Ipad that are getting charged incorrectly. After my complaint to them that I had data usage charged without ever, not even once getting online. My phone is not a smart/android phone. If you accidentally hit a key meant to take you to the web browser and you end the process within seconds, usually 3 at the most, you are still charged data usage. The instant you hit the key you are charged. They credited me 3 months of these charges, because they can only credit 3 months back and I was told to call back every 3 months and make them aware of these charges and I would be credited. Every three months so that I wouldn’t have to call every month. I have been with att for 8 years.
