Methinks that ATT don't want the FCC involved in this any more than they 
already are , since their system is not designed to operate as "off the 
air" receiving equipment.  If the FCC gets involved, and follows their 
own laws, then the onus will be on ATT to resolve the issue.  It would 
be the same as a guitar player complaining to the FCC about the ham next 
door interfering with his guitar amp.  (A common problem).
