I think the subject says it all. I know the dollar is at new lows and such but I say the fee increase is because the T-mobile Deal Fell through. Now that ATT lost there butt in the merger of T-mobile these big wigs are having to find ways to cut corners to make the same big money pay checks (not that anything is wrong with making money) But I say it is ATT's fault for trying to do something that common sense should have told them that they could not ! Now their customers will pay the money to T-mobile. Call me a troll if you want but telling the truth is not trolling. Bad investments that consumers have the pay what a shock. With the Fee increase maybe people should get out of their contract's and switch to another carrier! That would most definitely make some changes happen! It's called man up and do something about it or pay the bill and don't complain it's not that hard! With a fee increase you can opt out and port out and have the ETF fee waived just think of the damage that could be done to one of the big brother companies if the consumers actually did something about it. Just saying that is all.
