Good news, AT&T customers! You’ve just joined T-Mobile in the “bill my carrier account” club for your Market purchases. Hopefully this will alleviate some of the hangups customers have with attaching a credit card to any sort of account.
Naturally this could very well be a double edged sword. I’m talking to you awesome parents out there who gave your kids an Android device, of course. I’ve never been involved with AT&T so I’m not sure what kind of protection AT&T offers to block these sorts of transaction. Erring on the side of caution, it may be best for you parents, or whomever, to take any necessary precautions to prevent a heart attack when you open your next bill. Be it calling AT&T to prevent any potential charges, or prepping a switch and hanging it over the mantle in a stern warning to anyone on your family plan.
Android Developers Blog says they have been rolling out this change along side the general market update over the past several days. Any of you AT&T Phandroidians have an experience on the topic to share? Good or bad.
