Submission + - T-Mobile Sued over Mandatory Text Fees

OhHellWithIt writes: The Red Tape Chronicles blog on MSNBC.com is reporting that T-Mobile is being sued by a subscriber for requiring him to pay for text messages. The subscriber didn't know when he signed up for service that T-Mobile can't turn off text messages, and the carrier said he would have to pay $800 to terminate the contract.

IMHO, it's pretty galling, when you consider that a text message's use of bandwidth has got to be way lower than even one minute of voice traffic. It's going to be interesting to see how this shakes out.

UNIX is many things to many people, but it's never been everything to anybody.
