Are AT&T 's restoral fee legal?

Irving, TX |

AT&T charges you $40 every time they terminate your wireless service? Are such fees legal? If law permits that what is the maximum amount that can be charged?

  1. the contract you sign controls, service fees.

    I will allways give you a free consultation, so we can discuss all the facts of your case call us anytime at 718-263-6800


  2. AT&T's conditions of service are set out in its contract with you, and in its tariff filing with the Texas Public Service Commission. If you are not happy with the fees, you can sign on with another carrier.

    Why are you having your service terminated on a regular basis? If you are not paying your bill, the carrier has a right to charge you to reinstate your account. That is not a lot different than paying an NSF charge for a bounced check.

    Good luck.
