A new policy has gone into effect regarding how to handle Escalated Calls regarding data charges.

Web Access Blocks
Premium SMS blocking
Application download blocking
Vcast Music or Vcast Video download blocks
“Essentially, we are to upsell customers on the $9.99 25 mb/month or $29.99 unlimited packages for customers. Customers are not to be credited for charges unless they ask for the credit.”
