Episode 4 Aftercast: More on Cell Phone Fees, Fee-baits and Deals

Here is the audio to our latest show. 

At 3:10, we discuss the problems with getting AT&T "Feebaits" on your telephone, and specifically refer to this article on the Visa Gift cards you get after 8 weeks of waiting - guess what, more hassles using the money they promised you.

At 5:49, we give out the executive contact information for all 4 big cell phone providers that charge upgrade fees in case you want to contact them to complain, escalate complaints or let them know how you feel about their fees and "customer service" quality. 

AT&T: Randall Stephenson or 210-821-4105, x5, after the recording and pause, you are connected, ask for Mr. Stephenson's office.

25:10 We reference Michael Moore's movie Capitalism: A Love Story as a great film portraying the real impact on real people of the banking bailout and mortgage crisis.
