T-Mobile faces class action suit on text messages

T-Mobile class action suit

T-Mobile USA is currently the target of a class action suit regarding customers that have no interest in text messaging but are still being charged for the service. According to RCRWireless News, the company requires that users have a text message plan, lest they be charged for even unsolicited text messages. Users that do not have any use for text messaging have formed a class action suit, citing that T-Mobile USA is engaging in a wrongful business scheme, supposedly designed to cheat a large number of users out of small sums of money.

T-Mobile USA allegedly refuses to disable text messaging features on user accounts, while most other carriers - such as Verizon Wireless, and Sprint Nextell - offer their customers the ability to turn off the service if it is not desired.

When approached for comment, a representative for T-Mobile says the company does not comment on pending litigation.
