    Default Anyone else from IL get this weird text today from AT&T??
    So I just got this random text on my phone and it says...

    "AT&T Free Msg: NOTICE OF CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT - You may be entitled to benefits under a class settlement - Go to AT&T Mobility Settlement or call 1-877-905-8928"

    Weird....?

    I'm down for free money haha, were no other states getting charged tax for the iPhone data plan or something? I've had the iPhone data plan since the 1st gen iPhone came out :X wonder how much we'd end up getting back if this even goes through..

    Coffee $ if lucky. More likely, buy something and get a discount Lawyers always get the cream. Consumers get the scraps.

    Like a case I read about not to long ago where the victims got 100k each, two of them. And the lawyer got 600k.

    New York. Got it a couple weeks ago. It would be nice if they killed the tax on our bills. If that's even what it's about?

    I'm pretty sure everyone on at&t on got this message. It would be interesting to know how much we'd get back.

    You might get an "undisclosed" amount refunded to you if you were charged Internet taxes between 2005 and 2010. An iPhone requires a data plan, and the fairly recent 2GB limit only applies to new AT&T customers. I'm confused on how they could have charged anyone additional taxes when the majority of iPhone users had an unlimited data plan... Or was their another option you could buy? I guess this is why they got sued.
