Sprint & Verizon May Owe You Money
BOISE (KTVB) -- A judge has ordered Sprint and Verizon to pay some of its customers for mobile cramming.
Idaho joins the rest of the U.S. and two federal agencies in signing off on two agreements totaling $158 million.
The wireless companies allegedly charged consumers for third-party texting services without their knowledge.
Consumers who were subjected to the cramming were typically charged about $10 a month for so-called premium text message services varying from horoscopes to sports scores.
Attorney General Lawrence Wasden believes about 50,000 Idaho Sprint customers can seek refunds and 125,000 Verizon customers in the state may also be eligible.
For more information on how to get your refund, or to find out if you're affected, you can contact your wireless provider.
Last year, Idaho reached similar settlements with AT&T and T-Mobile.
