Okay now you guys got me in this argument too.
I was hanging with my friend last night and I wanted to watch some videos on YouTube, but knew I was almost at my data maximum. I went and checked how much I had left: roughly 1.55 GB, so I knew I'd be okay, as also the last time I had a notification from AT&T was 2 weeks ago telling me I was at 65%.
This morning I get a text saying I went over 100% and that $10 will be charged. I half-way flipped the hell out. Now I gotta call the "friendly" people over at AT&T and tell them my story, and how if they can't remove the charge, they can just go ahead and cancel the plan as well so that I can switch to Verizon for unlimited (and this time, not be blowing smoke up their asses.)
Screw AT&T. I tried to tell them 2 weeks ago that I wanted to switch to Verizon and asked if they could offer me unlimited and all they said was they didn't feel it was necessary as I had never went over 2GB before (which is retarded, since I AVOID it to not have to deal with bs) and that I "should be good" until my next bill cycle.
Should I call them and lie saying I wasn't even on my phone from 2 AM - 6 AM (when I was heavily using it) and say that I was sleeping like I do everyday, and then whip out what Fortex said earlier: ""If you can show me a itemized list of how much data was transferred and to what DNS/IPs in the past day, then you can have my $10."?

How could you have received notification that you were at 65% of your data, yet still have 1.55 GB remaining? If you had only used 0.45 GB that's only 23%.
Unless you meant you had used 1.55 GB and only had 0.45 GB remaining (used 77%), then that would make more sense, and I can totally see how you would have gone over the 2GB with heavy YT watching over 3G.
If the latter, then you have nothing to complain about and need to fork over the 10 bucks, and watch your usage better next month.

There's a difference between some people. If you were heavily using it to your knowledge then there's nothing to say. But some people get charged when they actually were not using data. I for one don't believe I can be at 65% notified then the following day be over my allocated 2GB amount when I was sleeping. It could just be a huge delay in the system's updating just as well, which needs some adjusting IMO.

Don't get me wrong, by all means I don't like AT&T. I switched to Verizon For 6 months I paid $10 for 1 GB that doesn't carry over, and the data I did use supposedly within the new 1GB carried over to the next cycle rather than staying on the one I already paid extra for. So I agree with you, leave AT&T. I'm just saying, don't go trying to lie to AT&T saying you didn't use data that you acknowledge you did use. Not that even if you really didn't use it would they do anything about it anyhow
