Investigation and potential class action lawsuit against Cingular and AT&T.
This investigation is examining recent claims that Cingular misled and overcharged AT&T cell phone subscribers when Cingular purchased AT&T in October of 2004. Recent allegations charge that Cingular altered AT&T's existing cell phone network, which required AT&T cell phone subscribers to purchase new phone equipment, move on to more expensive monthly plans, and in some cases, AT&T cell phone subscribers were charged an $18 'transfer' or 'upgrade' fee to move over to Cingular. Additionally, AT&T cell phone subscribers that did not wish to pay additional fees or continue service with Cingular, were charged an 'early termination fee' of $175.
