Verizon Wireless agrees to pay record $25 million fine over mystery fees

Verizon Wireless agreed to pay $25 million to the Federal Communications Commission -- a record, according to the agency -- to settle complaints the phone giant was charging "mystery fees" to consumers' phone bills over the last several years.

The fine is in addition to the $52.8 million Verizon already agreed to refund to 15 million of its customers. As part of the settlement, the company will have to give customers the option to block all data services on their cell phones.
