AT&T’s Deceptive Advertising
The big print giveth and the small print taketh away.
I received my “pre-ordered” AT&T iPhone 4S yesterday, Friday, October 14, 2011. AT&T included a flyer offering AT&T Mobile Insurance at $4.99/mo.
If you examine the offer carefully, you will find that the $4.99 price disappeared effective October 4, 2011 or ten days before.
AT&T could have reprinted this before packaging it with a phone that wouldn’t ship until more than a week after the pricing change. They chose not to. That is deceptive at best and fraud at worst. Shame on AT&T!
