Get Free Minutes In Verizon Wireless Class Action

A class action suit that alleged Verizon Wireless charged customers on the “America’s Choice II Calling Plan” for roaming, even though the plan is supposed to have no domestic roaming, has resulted in a settlement. If you were a subscriber to this plan at any point after February 21, 2005, you’re gonna get some free minutes.

You can either do nothing and automatically get 25 free minutes, or you can submit a claim form and apply for a PIN that will give you 40 “calling units.” These units can be used to make domestic or international calls.

Submit your claims at or by mail, or sit back and wait for the minutes to roll in. (Thanks to Veronica!)
