Verizon Wireless wins 2 cases against telemarketers

Verizon Wireless won two cases against telemarketers who made unwanted sales calls to its customers. The company has launched a new legal battle against unwanted SMS spammers. Judges in New Jersey and California banned a telemarketer from using autodialers or pre-recorded messages in calls to the carrier's subscribers. The carrier said its 49.3 million customers nationwide were protected by the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act and state laws prohibiting such calls to mobile handsets.
