It looks like Sprint and AT&T aren't the only carriers who are getting fined by the FCC for "cramming." T-Mobile is the latest US carrier to be required to give refunds to customers they supposedly over-charged for services that were not requested. T-Mobile tried to fight it, claiming that the charges were “unfounded and without merit.” Ultimately they capitulated, and the fine will be a hefty $90 Million, which will include refunds to some customers.
For those who don't know, "cramming" is the practice of billing customers for $9.99 subscriptions to ringtones and premium text message services that they didn't sign up for. Sound off if you have been the victim of "cramming" on any carrier.
