Cell Phone Companies Investigated for Charging Early Termination Fees [05/30/2006]
Wireless telephone carriers have charged early termination penalties despite their failure to supply adequate telephone service. The practice of charging these unfair fees to customers who terminate their unsatisfactory wireless phone service is designed to lock customers into staying with companies that cannot provide satisfactory service. Lawyers are currently investigating claims against wireless telephone providers, including AT&T, Verizon, Cingular, Sprint, T-Mobile, Nextel, U.S. Cellular, Alltel, and Qwest, who may have unfairly charged early termination fees even when they failed to provide adequate telephone service.

Early Termination Fees are often unfairly charged to customers accounts, forcing them to pay, despite complaining several times to the carrier about inadequate service and dropped calls.
