AT&T Enables Collect Calls to Wireless Phones
Today AT&T announced that it will now permit collect calls to go through to wireless phones. Callers dial 1-800-CALL-ATT, enter the wireless number and will then be connected to the mobile line. AT&T will charge $10 for up to 20 minutes of conversation. Wireless customers can opt out of the program.
Enabled for Other Carriers
Last year Sprint and Helio both enabled this over the summer, so seems AT&T is just about a year late. Although, the rate isnt directly from an affiliate collect calling service, its through any company the calling party uses. I used American Roaming Network, and was able to ring my phone, answer, and find the charge was $1.99 a minute with a call connection fee of $7.99 or something like that. So its quite a bit more to use ARN then AT&T Collect.
Personally, I dont mind collect calls to my mobile as long as they can not be manipulated by ...
$10 for 20min?
seems kinda pricey.
