Verizon Wireless will pay a $25 million fee to the U.S. government to settle the issue of accidental data charges. The FCC was investigating claims of customers who may have inadvertently activated a data feature on a phone without a data plan, thus incurring a data usage charge. Verizon Wireless previously announced it would reimburse customers a total of $52.8 million, mostly in increments from $2 to $6 per user. Verizon has also added a free 50 KB allowance to user accounts with the hope of avoiding future problems. One in six Verizon customers may have been affected by the issue.

Obama! Obama!

Average Joe gets $2, the government gets 25 million, and why should the government be awarded such a huge amount anyway? Was it affected by this overcharge? NO Rolling Eyes That extra money could have gone to the customer as well.
