HONOLULU (AP) - More than 61,000 Hawaii consumers could be eligible for refunds under a nationwide $90 million T-Mobile settlement.

T-Mobile will pay at least $90 million, mostly in refunds, for billing customers for cellphone text services they didn’t order. The practice is known as “cramming.”

The state Office of Consumer Protection says more than 61,000 T-Mobile customers in Hawaii are believed to have incurred unauthorized cramming charges. The office says Hawaii will receive more than $203,000 for participating in the settlement.

The Federal Trade Commission announced the agreement Friday. T-Mobile is the fourth-largest U.S. cellphone provider.

Any eligible consumer who files a claim through https://www.t-mobilerefund.com will get a full refund.
