Verizon Wireless has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit over deceptive billing practices. Customers contend Verizon over-charged Family Share Plan subscribers between 2002 and 2006. They allege the company charged for in-network voice minutes that were meant to be free. They further claim Verizon over-charged for voice minute usage that exceeded the monthly allotment. For example, the main line was charged 25 cents per extra minute, but other Family Share Plan members were charged 45 cents per extra minute. The stepped-up charges were not spelled out adequately by Verizon Wireless. Verizon is putting $36.7 million into a settlement fund for customers over-charged for voice minutes. The remaining $27.5 million chunk is meant for customers who were billed for in-network minutes. The settlement has not yet been approved by a judge, and it's unclear how consumers are to go about being reimbursed.
