From the recent $18000 bill article:
It's still happening: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...phone-off.htmlThe FCC is also accepting comments from the public, consumer groups, and industry specialists about outrageously high wireless cellphone bills as it considers increased industry regulation. One possibility is a rule similar to one enacted last June by the European Union that requires wireless providers to send a text message to users if they are about to incur expensive roaming charges or are nearing their data-usage limit for a particular month.
Let's all send the FCC a comment and make this happen! Without a rule, wireless carriers will continue this.
The 45 day comment period started May 11. Here's the FCC announcement: Powered by Google Docs
Only 221 people have commented as of now as seen here: http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/procee...ew?name=09-158
Here's the form: http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload...58&filedFrom=X
Just go to the form and do it! Tell 'em:
Wireless carriers should be forced to disclose to consumers when unusually high charges are being accrued.
I don't want to be notified when my bill gets too high.
