Lawsuit Alleges That AT&T Is Systematically Overbilling iPhone and iPad Accounts


A two-month study on behalf of plaintiff Patrick Hendricks claims that AT&T typically overstated traffic by up to 7 to 14 percent, but potentially in excess of 300 percent. Well, that’s one way to make up lost revenue with the Verizon iPhone. AT&T withdrew its unlimited data plan offering last June. Although it hasn’t said so publicly, unlimited data is now back on the table for AT&T customers who purchased their phone before June — and possibly for subscribers that deep-breathe the word Verizon while on hold with their customer-service rep.
