IPhone Bill in a Box, No Mo'

If you haven't heard about Justine Ezarik 300-page iPhone bill, then you must read my post over here. Anyway, the girl got a shinning iPhone, took advantage of her all-you-can-eat plan by texting over 30,000 messages, and a month later out comes a phone bill the size of a Harry Potter book (ok, I'm exaggerating). The problem here is that nobody told new AT&T subscribers they have e-billing options, therefore many of them will be getting their iPhone bill in boxes. So what is AT&T doing? AT&T hasn't issued a official statement yet (at least I haven't seen one), but an AT&T rep emailed one blogger to let him know that AT&T "is aware they are killing a lot of trees and is just starting to prevent it by going to "summary billing"-meaning no more call/data details for every phone on the account, just basic charges. This happens by default for every new customer as of August 10th." Oh, and those that really, really want a paper bill will have to pay an extra $1.99 per month--according to the rep. Well that's going to help me sleep better at night. I'm not sure how reliable this "rep" insider info is, but if you have an iPhone, find out what the deal is next month, and let me know, will ya?
