T-Mobile Slapped With Class Action Suit
Jan 30, 2008, 3:23 PM by Eric M. Zeman
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.

Apple has revealed the iPhone 15 series, which moves to a USB-C connector and brings several key features from last year's Pro models to the more-affordable standard models. These include the pill-shaped sensor cutout in the display that Apple calls Dynamic Island, a brighter display that can reach 2000 nits, a 48 megapixel main camera, and the A16 Bionic processor chip.
Now THIS lawsuit has some merit
If you can't block the feature, it should either be free, or every customer should get even 10-20 free messages a month just to cover incidentals, unwanted messages, and spam.

AT&T lets customers block text messaging
If people are getting spam then they need to stop adding there mobile number to all the webs they go to. And if they are getting daily jokes or ringtones and such they should have not watched that commercial and sent the first text.
As you kids, not T-Mobiles fault your kids dont listen to you. Get a handle on them and if they wont stop take away phone, or add 9.99 feature for unlimited text instead of whinning about hundreds dollars in overage.

Did't T-Mobile got sued for something else recently and lost?
If i get a phone call from a number i don't recoqnize, i don't answer. Maybe there should be a system that only if you open and read the message then you get charged. BUT WHATEVER. I have a messaging plan and i an not even close to my limit, so does not affect me.
