If there’s one thing you should have learned by now from all the class action lawsuits filed against wireless carriers and mobile content providers in the last several years, it’s to pay attention to your cell phone bills. Here’s yet another cell content class action settlement that should have you combing through your old wireless bills with a fine-toothed comb.
Seven mobile content providers have agreed to pay $10.85 million to settle several class action lawsuits accusing them of adding unauthorized charges on users’ wireless bills. If you were charged for unauthorized content from any of the defendants prior to August 27, 2010, you can receive a cash reward of $10 or a refund of up to three months of content subscription charges from the cell content settlement.
According to the class action lawsuit, entitled Williams v. Motricity, Inc., mobile content providers Flycell, Glomobi Mobilefunster, Thumbplay, WebAMG Holding and marketing affiliate Glispa and the aggregator Motricity charged wireless subscribers for “mobile content” without authorization. “Mobile content” includes electronic products such as ringtones, games, graphics, news and other alerts that are provided through mobile phones and are charged directly to users’ mobile phone bills. Cell phone users are encouraged to scan their past phone records for short codes that identify charges from the various mobile content companies. A list of these short codes can be found on the Settlement Administrator's website at www.CellContentSettlement.com.
If you were charged, damaged or otherwise lost money prior to August 27, 2010 as a result of unauthorized content from any of the companies listed above, you can file a claim to receive $10 or a refund of up to three months of content subscription charges under the Motricity class action lawsuit settlement. In addition to paying out the class action settlement, the defendants are also required to adhere to certain consumer protection practices, including properly disclosing billing terms and promptly refunding authorized content.
Note: Participants in the AT&T, Mobile Messenger, Media Breakaway, m-Qube or Jamster! settlements are not eligible.
In order to claim either your cash award or subscription refund under the Motricity cell content settlement, you must submit a claim form either online or postmarked by January 31, 2011.
