Class Action Lawsuit on Verizon Wireless Refusing to Allow Subscriber Data Sharing

Class Action Lawsuit against Verizon Wireless Affects 500 million consumers The lawsuit states that AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile were violating subscribers’ privacy rights and these companies were not obligated to disclose the costs and the bundling. Class Action Lawsuit against Verizon Wireless was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California. The lawsuit was initiated by a Verizon Wireless Customer called Phyllis. Phyllis claims she was deceived into purchasing a two-year Verizon contract, with the understanding that she would receive an extra year free on her Verizon plan when she brought a family member onto the Verizon network.

However, after her contract expired, Verizon Wireless denied her the ability to continue using the service, stating “her account was closed as a result of a Verizon Wireless error”. Verizon Wireless then refused to provide her any kind of refund or reimbursement, stating “as a customer, you cannot be refunded for purchases you make”. Phyllis then contacted a law firm which specializes in class-action lawsuit’s to assist her in recovering her losses. The attorney stated that Verizon Wireless was violating her right to join a class action lawsuit and was therefore liable for her damages.

This class action lawsuit against Verizon Wireless is one of the biggest decisions made by a judge in history. The judge ordered Verizon Wireless to allow customers the ability to switch to another provider at any time they so choose. Verizon Wireless was also ordered to develop a data plan that will allow customers the ability to make their own decision on whether or not to purchase a data plan. Phyllis, lost her three-year old child through miscarriage and was left with no income. In this situation, the judge could have mercy on Verizon Wireless and have them pay for the cost of her child’s medical bills, however, she was not able to get her wish.

Another customer, John Doe, faced a similar predicament. He signed up for a Verizon Wireless 2-year data plan but was then forced to cancel it because he could not meet the monthly required usage requirements. According to Verizon Wireless policy, customers can only use a certain amount of data per month, which is determined by their individual usage. John Doe was forced to pay the additional charges because he could not meet the usage requirements.

The Verizon Wireless class action lawsuit against Phyllis and John Doe is similar to that of Verizon Wireless refusing to allow customers the ability to switch to another carrier on the grounds that it would constitute a misuse of subscriber data. The class action lawsuit against Verizon Wireless has been ongoing. Phyllis and John Doe are appealing their class action lawsuit to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

      I have an IPhone I purchased from Verizon back on Oct 2021. This phone has not been working properly and Verizon failed to explain in full about my charges. I added two more lines to my account and I specifically informed Verizon that I did not want a huge bill. When I received the bill it had hidden fees and charges that I was not informed about. Please help me.

      I wish I had never become a customer of Verizon in December 0f 2021 for I have had nothing but hellacious trouble with their service and their representatives. They failed to tell me that the area I was getting my service in could not receive a good signal from their towers and when I continued to complain my service became worse which lead to service only through Wi-Fi and I do not and did not have Wi-Fi meaning I have no internet provider. They continued to tell me to get an internet provider for then I could use my mobile phone. I wanted to end the contract and ask if I could get my trade-ins back and I was told by the representatives numerous times that my trade-ins were refurbished and gone and there was no getting them back nor giving us replacements for two phones I paid $1000,00 apiece for. This has been nothing but a total nightmare and I am now stuck into a contract with Verizon in what seems to be at least two years and truly I wish I had never entered into a contract. My first four bills were near $1750.00 and I put money down when purchasing their phones plus gave them trade-ins and the $800.00 trade-in value for each of our phones they told us would show up on our bill as a deduction has not once appeared on the four bills I’ve received thus far. I would advise people not to go with Verizon for they will end up with nothing more than one major headache after another. I want better service that I do not have. I have repeatedly asked them to give us our money back so that we can find a better service and they continue to refuse. I ask for better service and Verizon continues to get worse except for Ultra 5g in big cities I am not in a big city and they knew that. Anyone living in rural areas there is no hope for better service unless one gets an internet provider so that then Verizon can suck off of the internet provider’s service. Therefore, Verizon then gets service free off of the one who is paying the internet provider and then Verizon still sends out their large overcharged bill to us their customer. I’m not going to pay for two bills when I was depending on one service to work and that one service is Verizon and they need to uphold their contract stating they will provide great service to all of their customers.
