Sprint Nextel has agreed to pay $19 million to settle a lawsuit filed by customers who accused the Overland Park-based company of improperly charging them for using their cell phones to send pictures. The settlement, filed in a federal court in Newark, N.J., involved the company’s “Everything Messaging” plan. It was alleged in the suit that Sprint refused to tell customers about the charges or how to avoid unnecessary charges. The settlement involves customers from January 2008 to June of this year, and gives them the choice between free service, fee waivers, credit adjustments, gift cards and cash.
