Et Tu, AT&T Wireless? Spamming Your Own Users

Following yesterday’s story of a wireless carrier in India that had no problem spamming users with text messages for “humanitarian causes”, it turns out that AT&T Wireless is spamming its own customers. Showing just how much they don’t understand what they’ve done they claim this is okay, because it’s not prevented by their terms of service. How can we trust the carriers not to allow mobile spam (which clearly has the potential to be even more annoying than email spam) when they don’t seem to understand the concept themselves?
