AT&T offers $2.50 BlackBerry rebate… Seriously

Comments

Thumbs DownThis little piece of hilarity came our way via the BG Report: apparently, AT&T, the most magnanimous of all North American carriers, is offering a rebate to BlackBerry users for the major outage that happened last week. That’s right, folks, if you’re an AT&T customer, you’re looking to walk away with a cool $2.50.

Now look, we know that the network outtage wasn’t AT&T’s fault, and their trying to compensate their customers as best they can, but $2.50? Considering the type of clientele that uses BlackBerrys, this might actually be more of a slap in the face when put in the context of how much productivity (read: money) was lost that day. Post a comment and let us know what you think.

    Since when is AT&T required to pay for lost productivity? I supppose you are going to want Microsoft to pay for your lost productivity next time your hard drive crashes too.
    At most AT&T should refund that percentage of your monthly bill for the number of hours service was out.

    $2.50 for each Blackberry on a corporate account will add up. For my company we’re looking at 2 grand. Not bad.

    I haven’t heard of any rebate for the voice outage that occured the week before the BB outage. Our people were mad about that.

    I think everyone was secretly happy when BB went dark.
