A law firm retained by AT&T threatened in a letter dated Friday to shut off Spaccarelli's phone service if he doesn't sit down to talk.
Spaccarelli has posted online the documents he used to argue his case and encourages other AT&T customers copy his suit. Legal settlements usually include non-disclosure agreements that would force Spaccarelli to take down the documents.
In its letter, AT&T asked Spaccarelli to be quiet about the settlement talks, including the fact that it offered to start them, another common stipulation. Spaccarelli said he was not interested in settling, and forwarded the letter to The Associated Press.
How WikiLeaks of him!
There's an AP video below covering the Spaccarelli story that includes a woman trashing AT&T's service and claiming for the last few years she "couldn't even use the phone in my own home."
First, if she read the fine print of her contract, she'd realize that using her smartphone in her own home is expressly forbidden! Second, you'll be hearing from AT&T's lawyers, sister.
