OK I just got a text message from AT&T that reads:
"Your phone is now enabled to roam and dial internationally. Details and rates at att.com/global"
1. I do not travel internationally
2. I live in Florida
So I called AT&T to find out why that feature has been activated in my account without my permission because I certainly did not do it or authorized anyone to activate it.
The rep told me that "the system does this automatically just in case you travel to another country or roam."
I then told her that even though its not her fault, I think it is VERY disrespectful of AT&T to add features or services to a customer's account without the customer's authorization. I was fuming. This is totally wrong and uncalled for. Who the hell do they think they are to activate services on customer's accounts without asking them first?
I imagine you pull your hair out just the same when visiting 99.99% of websites that activate a feature without asking you first.
