Verizon Refunding Data and Web Charges
Verizon Wireless improperly charged cell phone customers for web access or data usage over the past several years, and it's going to cost them.
The price tag for the error could hit 90 million dollars. Verizon said yesterday that most of the 15 million customers affected will get credits of two to six dollars on their October or November bills.
Customers who've changed wireless providers will get a refund check. There are some, they say, who will get more money.
The Federal Communications Commission asked Verizon Wireless about dollar-ninety-nine a megabyte data access fees that showed up on bills of people who didn’t have data plans, but accidentally initiated data or web access by pressing a button on their phones.
