The Federal Trade Commission notched a win for consumers on Wednesday when it announced a $105 million "cramming" settlement with AT&T. The fine is notable for a few reasons: It's the biggest one the FTC has ever made with a major mobile carrier, and, more importantly, $80 million of it will go to refunding customers who were taken advantage of in the first place.

I wonder if that goes back to 2002-2004? I had cramming charges on my Cingular account back then. Even a few dollars back from that scumbag company would be nice.

Verizon also got hit by a similar suit right?

I remember Verizon getting charged for having a button on most phones that would lead to the web and charge you for the data.
