Verizon Wireless Faces Class Action Suit Over Data Fees
Feb 26, 2010, 1:59 PM by Philip Berne
The law firm of Goldman Scarlato & Karon, P.C., has filed a class action lawsuit against Verizon Wireless in the state of New Jersey. The lawsuit claims that Verizon charged its non-smartphone customers for data service that these customers never used. Specifically, the suit is referring to the alleged 'accidental' charges that could accrue if a non-smartphone user, that is a user who is not paying for a data plan, accessed the Web or other data services. Verizon Wireless charges non-smartphone users without a data plan $1.99 per megabyte. The wireless carrier has previously stated that these claims may be incorrect, and that simply opening the mobile browser on a phone does not incur any charges. Charges are only levied against users who navigate away from the Verizon Wireless home page and access other information, applications or services, according to the carrier. The lawsuit is looking for reimbursement for these charges should it turn out that users were charged improperly.
