INDIANAPOLIS (May 12, 2015) – The state resolved “cramming” cases against two major mobile phone carriers as part of a multi-state settlement with Sprint and Verizon.
The mobile carriers were accused of putting unauthorized charges on customers’ cell phone bills. The state announced a similar settlement last year with AT&T and T-Mobile. As a result of the latest settlement, an estimated 750,000 Hoosiers may be eligible for refunds.
Indiana is joined by the attorneys general of the other 49 states and the District of Columbia, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
