CNN -- T-Mobile has been sued by the Federal Trade Commission for hitting customers with hundreds of millions of dollars in bogus charges over the past several years.
The charges were from third-party merchants offering text subscriptions for things like flirting tips, horoscopes and celebrity gossip.
Those charges were frequently not authorized by customers. As many as 40 percent of those customers asked for refunds.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere said the FTC complaint was "sensationalized", "unfounded", and "without merit".
