"Jay Levy says he has been stung by Apple's iPhone pact with AT&T after he took an iPhone on a Mediterranean cruise. They didn't use their phones, but when they got back they had a 54-page monthly bill of nearly $4,800 from AT&T Wireless. The problem was that their three iPhones were racking up a bill for data charges using foreign phone charges. The iPhone regularly updates e-mail, even while it's off, so that all the messages will be available when the user turns it on."

All I have to say is whoa, that would suck!

I really wouldnt want that, if i turn my phone off I want it off, undisturbed, dead! guess you'd have to remove the battery?

That's probably true. In order to by pass that you probably have to remove the battery completely.

Hahaha, I'm avoiding making a thread about it and maybe getting abused. Just got some spare time and a computer again, and I thought of AI. So why not ?
