When customers notify AT&T about being charged for spam, AT&T works with them to resolve the charges. AT&T provides customers who receive SMS and MMS spam with credits to offset the charges. It’s important to note that often AT&T cannot determine if a message is subscribed or unsolicited until the customer brings it to their attention.
Additionally, customers can get more info on how to control spam by visiting: www.att.com/wireless and search "spam."

SeriouslySounds to me like there was a miscommunication on the phone between our resident DT complainer, and Sprint. And one decided to take his anger out to the internet.
