My Own Billing Nightmare, Courtesy of AT&T


Over the weekend I received my AT&T bill in the mail - both of them. Huh...TWO envelopes? Rather than the usual slim parcel containing a handful of billing statements, I received two overstuffed packets filled with nearly sixty pages, detailing every minutia of data. While this is still a far cry from Justine Ezarik's infamous 300 page AT&T bill, it still exceeds the boundaries of reason and is horrific waste of tree.

Somewhere in the world, birds and squirrels were made homeless to provide me with this worthless example of excess. AT&T promises to cut down on the paper trail, but I have my own solution - online billing. I pay my cell phone bill online, and have for several years now. Why AT&T feels compelled to bless me with redundant paper invoices is beyond me.

Join AT&T, kill a tree.

My Own Billing Nightmare, Courtesy of AT&T


Kill a tree? How about: Kill a forest!
Have they never had someone on an unlimited data/texting plan before?
I wonder if AT&T is trying to make Apple look less Green. Funny thing is, AT&T is the one looking totally not Green these days!

I agree. Same thing happened with Bank of America and AT&T for me. They said that they were going to be sending me a letter. I told B OF A no, but they insisted on sending me a letter anyways. What a waste of paper. These are the companies who telling us that we need to not waste so much!
