Wireless Carrier Usage Alerts to Prevent Bill Shock

17, 2012 is the deadline by which the participating CTIA member wireless carriers must
provide their subscribers with at least two of the specified four types of alerts to allow
consumers to avoid unexpected charges for wireless usage exceeding their plan limits, and
for additional charges for international roaming. The Consumer and Governmental Affairs
Bureau will provide a status report of the participating carriers' compliance with this
requirement.
