Verizon is giving back some money to you.
Verizon announced to issue credits to about 15 million of their customers. Verizon says that these credits are for mistaken past data charges. In most cases these credits are only in the $2-$6 range. So there goes your shopping spree.

Verizon has discovered the mistaken data charges while reviewing customer accounts. Over the past several years approximately 15 million customers who did not have data plans were billed for data sessions on their phones that they did not initiate.
These customers would normally have been billed at the standard rate of $1.99 per megabyte for any data they chose to access from their phones. The majority of the data sessions involved minor data exchanges caused by software built into their phones; others included accessing certain web links, which should not have incurred charges. Verizon has now addressed these issues to avoid unintended data charges in the future.
