Sprint faces class action lawsuit over billing

Sprint Nextel faces a class action lawsuit that accuses the carrier of charging data card users certain taxes and fees that only apply to mobile phones. The Utility Consumers' Action Network (UCAN) is facilitating the suit, which it claims could end up costing Sprint millions. UCAN said fees for 911 services, SMS services and other FCC mandated fees for mobile phones should not be billed to data card users.

"They went ahead and charged these customers state regulatory taxes as well as federal related charges that they shouldn't have been charging," says UCAN attorney Art Neill.
