T-Mobile Slapped With Class Action Suit
T-Mobile subscribers have filed a class action lawsuit against the company over charges for unwanted text messages. The lawsuit contends that T-Mobile does not allow customers to prevent text messages from being sent or received from their mobile phones, and charges the customers for messages even if the customer doesn't want them. One of the litigants claims T-Mobile refused to turn off the text messaging feature on her phone. T-Mobile didn't respond to the lawsuit. Sprint and Verizon Wireless allow customers to disable text messaging features.
