T-Mobile USA faces SMS lawsuit

T-Mobile USA is facing a class action lawsuit filed by subscribers who claim to have been charged for text messages even though they do not want the feature. The subscribers claim that T-Mobile should disable SMS features for those who do not wish to use SMS or receive texts at all.

"T-Mobile requires each of its customers who have not subscribed to one of T-Mobile's Messaging Value Bundles to pay for each and every unsolicited text message they receive," the suit claims. "In sum, T-Mobile, the party with the superior bargaining power, has carried out a wrongful business scheme regarding text messaging to deliberately cheat a large number of consumers out of individually small sums of money."
