Being how anal I am with our personal finance, I know my monthly local phone and DSL is around $40 monthly, so I was a bit surprised when the a $44 bill came.
Now, $4 is not a lot to deal with, but out of curiosity, I wanted to know why. So I begin to dig into the infamous telecom bill with dozens of lines for various taxes, fees, etc. (you know what I'm talking about).
Then I noticed the item of "Your Listing Is Not Published" raised from $0.28 to $1.25.
(click to see larger image of $0.28 before the fee hike)
I called AT&T immediately and the agent quickly corrects it and acknowledge that "yes, we did raise the fee *significantly* recently".
My home line is no longer "not published", but they said they have a (free) option to just show "than" instead of my full name and will not show home address.
I wonder how long it would take AT&T to change that free option and start charging me again without informing me! Amazing what they get away with! Now go and check your own AT&T bill and see if you got dinged as well.
