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.
