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.
