Verizon Wireless to Refund $90 Million in Data Fees
Verizon Wireless has announced that it will pay approximately 15 million of its customers a total of $90 million in refunds for erroneous data charges applied to their accounts. The refund, which the FCC had a hand in forcing upon Verizon, covers data charges that were incurred when users accidentally or otherwise unknowingly accessed data services. For example, users who accidentally launched the browser (and weren't subscribed to a data plan) were charged with per-megabyte data sessions. Verizon will pay the customers between $2 and $6 each.

Carriers and phone manufacturers can do their part by making one touch access less accessible or putting data further into the menu system.
