If you have an international calling plan with AT&T a call is 11 cents per minute to Brazil, but if you don't it's $5.33 per minute, in other words, a $19.00 call is $437.00 for the same call, over the same network. AT&T failed to give me an international calling plan after I asked for one. Then charged me $1000 and will not readjust the charges. There is no justification for this kind of discrepancy in rates between a free plan and non-rate plan charges.
