Verizon reaches settlement with the Motorola v710 customers

Verizon Wireless's settlement with the Motorola v710 customers has been granted a preliminary approval by a Californian court. The approval is a part of a class-action suit against the company for not informing consumers accurately about the Bluetooth capabilities of the handset. It was mentioned that the Motorola v710 works with a PC, but the fact that it can't wirelessly sync photos or contacts or any other files via Bluetooth was not unveiled. According to the settlement, all the customers who acquired the device on or before January 31, 2005 have the following choices:

  • to get a $25 credit on their bills, if they decide to keep the phone
  • to cancel the service without any additional fees and get a refund for the phone and the accessories, if they decide not to keep it
  • to return the phone for credit towards a new handset
