If you are or were a T-Mobile customer, you may be due a refund.

In a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, the fourth largest cellphone company has agreed to pay up to $90 million for billing customers for text services they didn’t order.

It’s a practice known as “cramming.”

Officials say the charges were typically for $9.99-a-month and came from third party services for things like horoscopes and celebrity gossip updates.

The FTC alleges that T-Mobile collected 35 percent to 40 percent of the charges.

Most of the $90 million will be used for customer refunds.

The settlement is similar to one by AT&T that occurred earlier this year for the same “cramming” practices.

However, T-Mobile customers will need to file for a refund.

All refund requests must be filed by June 30, 2015.
