    How it it a ripoff? Did you break the contract?

    Unless AT&T didn't uphold their end of the contract,
    you don't have a leg to stand on.

    I called ATT before I canelled. They said my expired date was 1/17/05.
    I cancelled two weeks later. Interestingly on the bill they chaged me
    an early cancellation fee but still charged me for service.

    Have you actually spoken to anyone, or are you just taking
    the charge at face value?

    It's not uncommon for cell phone carriers to screw up!

    Re: cell phone ripp offs

    I'm going to call them in the morning. I admitt I saw the bill and went
    ballistic. I have two cell phones> On one they chaged 10x's more for
    the city and state tax than they did on the other. That is an obvious
    error.

    No error. They charged you tax on the termination fee.

    My advice, call them but also write them a letter explaining everything you
    did. Documentation is very important if it goes to court. Telling the judge
    that you called and spoke with "someone" is not very good for your case.
