Court Approves Ringtone Lawsuit Settlement
A court in Chicago has given preliminary approval to settle 30 class-action lawsuits against companies that charged for ringtones, games and other content that end users thought were free. Each claimant will receive either $10 cash award or a $10 refund (via their carrier). Given the number of possible claimants, the companies in question may pay out as much as $63 million. Some of the defendants include Sony Pictures, MBlox, and Lavalife.

And it's incredible that those tv texting commercials make so much money off of idiots trying to check thier horoscope, get ringtones or find thier "true love"
what a scam... hopefully the stuff ALL gets taken down.
I'm not sure if Verizon has anythi...
Whatever happened to taking responsibility for things?
Just what the doctor ordered...
And yes, it happened to me. Somehow. Thank God Verizon now blocks any type of 3rd party billing to my account.
Is it possible that you signed up for the service, and just didnt bother to read the full term of service? I would bet dollars to doughnuts that the charges were spelled out in there in full.
