AT&T Sued For Systematic iPhone Overbilling

daniorerio Re:AT&T's Fault? (265 comments)

From the provider's point of view it is pretty easy to determine if a phone was actually on or not, so if you're going to overbill it's probably wise to overbill phones that were actually turned on...

My Job Is..

daniorerio Re:Grad student here (404 comments)

This counts for the US, most Dutch students won't have such debts. Tuition is 1500 EUR/year, many students find time for a parttime job during undergrad studies, otherwise mom & dad step in. I was debt free when I started my PhD.

Yeah TFS is misleading, what else is new?
