SBC Complaint - international calling plan.
My fiance is stationed in Germany for the next 3 years. I let SBC talk me into getting the International calling plan, which was something like $20/mo and then the phone calls were supposed to be 10 cents a minute. They neglected however to tell me that there would be connection fees because I was calling to his cell in Germany. When I got my bill, It was $352, I was being charged a 12 cent a minute connection fee to a mobile phone plus 12 cents a minute for every minute a talked. Since I pointed out that according to the Texas Attorney General, this practice falls under fraud because SBC neglected to inform me of it, they credited that amount to my account. I just want to remind people to please contact their state's attorney general when they feel they are being ripped off. When your case is in ligatation, you don't pay until the AG has settled it. If more people start complaining and taking action, then a lot of companies will start revising their policies.
