Submission + - FCC probes Google, T-Mobile for double-whammy fees (

Julie188 writes: On Monday, the FCC asked Google, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon to explain how they tell their customers about early wireless contract termination fees. Notice that Google is the only handset retailer in the bunch. That's because if someone buys a Nexus One phone from Google with a two-year T-Mobile contract, and the user wants out of that contract, the user is expected to pay two "early termination fees." One fee would be charged by Google and a second charged by T-Mobile.
