Hello all, I got this postcard in the mail today:
If you can’t read that scan, here’s a transcript:
Important Notice from United States District Court for the District of New Jersey about a Class Action Settlement
If you paid or were charged a T-Mobile flat-rate Early Termination Fee (“ETF”) from July 23, 1999 to February 19, 2009, or were subject to a T-Mobile flat-rate ETF on February 19, 2009, you could get benefits from a settlement.
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action alleging that the T-Mobile flat-rate ETF (generally $200) is unlawful. The sole purpose of this Notice is to inform you of the Settlement so that you may decide what to do about it.
If the Settlement is approved, Settlement Class members who submit Claim Forms may receive monetary or other benefits. You may also choose to exclude yourself from, or object to, the Settlement.
For a full description of the Settlement, related Court documents, and deadlines and forms, please visit www.etf-settlement.com. Claim Forms are due August 23, 2009, but the date may be extended. Requests to exclude yourself from the Settlement must be submitted to the Settlement Administrator and are due June 3, 2009, and objections to the Settlement (which may be made through an attorney) are due June 3, 2009 and any objections to attorneys’ fees requested are due June 22, 2009. If you do not exclude yourself by June 3, 2009, and you are a member of the Class, you will be bound by the Settlement. Your can get a Claim Form at www.etf-settlement.com/claimform, by calling 1-800-589-1423 or by writing the Settlement Administrator at P.O. Box 945, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55440-0945. Questions may also be directed to Class Counsel, by email at email@example.com.
Please do not contact T-Mobile or the Court with questions about the Settlement.
So, is it interesting? You bet! I paid the $200 ETF to get out of my contract to move to the iPhone with AT&T. I was a customer for 7 years and I still have two cell phones on a T-Mobile plan. I’m going to print my claim forms now. . .
Take care, Ryan
