Caddell & Chapman is investigating complaints by Verizon* customers who paid for "tethering" or who were prevented from getting tethering for free.
"Tethering" refers to sharing the internet connection of a mobile phone with other devices such as laptop computers. We believe that Verizon was required to permit its customers to use their mobile phones for tethering at no additional cost. However, Verizon improperly imposed a charge for tethering and improperly prevented its customers from using third-party services to obtain free tethering with their mobile phones.
If you are, or were, a Verizon customer and either paid Verizon for tethering (or were prohibited from obtaining tethering for free) and would like to discuss this, we will do so at no charge to you.
If we believe you have a valid claim that is suitable for a class action, and that you would be an adequate representative of those in a similar situation, we can explore the possibility of filing a class action against Verizon, with you serving as a class representative. If we decide to do so, we would handle the case on a contingent basis, meaning you would not be responsible for paying any fees or expenses; rather, such fees or expenses would only be recovered if the case is successful, and would be paid either by Verizon or out of the relief obtained for the class.
