AT$T is a monster with no soul...I will never forgive them for charging me a disconnect fee when they could not provide me service to where I moved...

Sadly, the government will,, maybe, see payment. The consumer/subscriber and therefore the VICTIM won't benefit from this finding and judgment.

STATED in the article:

"As part of the settlement, $80 million will be used to provide refunds to affected customers. An additional $20 million will go to the 50 US states and the District of Columbia while the remaining $5 million will be pocketed by the FCC." -Shawn Knight, Techspot*

Maybe we should get our news in 250 characters or less so we don't go TL;DR... but that wont fix the problem.

AT&T has tried this on my family plan dozens of times. We pretty much have to call them every month to let them know it's wrong.
