I just got cheated by AT&T for the third and last time. I made an international call and got charged $3.49 dollars a minute. Every one else does not charge near that much. Messaging cost 20 cents per message sent and 15 cents received regardless of weather or not it reaches the destination. It does not cost anywhere near that much to do something like this, but I got charged.
I got a tracfone and its messages are 6.33 cents per message and I am sure it could be done cheaper.
Filed under: Home EntertainmentYou know those handy mailers that you've been sending back to Netflix for ages as you eagerly await the next few flicks in your queue? Apparently, those buggers have cost the US Postal Service a staggering $41.9 million in additional labor costs over the past two years due to their "nonmachinable nature," and if things aren't changed, it could cost 'em another $61.5 million over the next couple years. In a letter from the Inspector General's office, Netflix is being, um, asked to rework its mailers or face a $0.17 surcharge per envelope, and if such a fee was tacked on, it would reportedly decrease the outfit's monthly operating income per paying subscriber by a whopping 67-percent. Not surprisingly, it sounds as if Netflix will bite the bullet and redesign the problematic mailer if the USPS is serious about the charges, so feel free to keep an eye out for a design change in the not-too-distant future.
