Para ver este aviso en espanol, visita
A Class Action Settlement Could Affect Your Rights If You:
• Subscribed to wireless telephone service from AT&T
Mobility LLC (“AT&T Mobility”) or its predecessors and paid
or were charged a flat-rate early termination fee (“ETF”) at
any time after January 1, 1998; or
• Your contract included a flat-rate ETF provision at any time
after January 1, 1998.
A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action alleging
that AT&T Mobility’s flat-rate ETF (generally between $150 and
$175) was unlawful. The Settlement resolves several other cases
that challenge AT&T Mobility’s flat-rate ETF. AT&T Mobility strongly
denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to settle to avoid the
burden and cost of further litigation. The sole purpose of this
notice is to inform you of the Settlement so that you may
decide what to do.
If the Settlement is approved, a settlement fund of $16,000,000
in cash and $2,000,000 in non-cash benefits will be created.
Class Members who submit Claim Forms may receive monetary
or other benefits. You may also choose to exclude yourself from,
or object to, the Settlement. The Court has appointed attorneys
to represent the Class. You may hire your own attorney, but only
at your own expense.
