Downloading Software Updates Could Cost Cell Phone Customers


When cell phone updates are available, many of us click "ok" without hesitation.

After downloading an update, Les Meyers found a new application called Caller Name ID on his Android phone. After a 10 day free trial, the application starts charging customers.

$2.99/month might not seem like a lot, but with millions of Droid users worldwide, a few bucks adds up. Meyers finds this deceiving to customers.

"I think that if they're going to push through apps that are actually going to cost you money, there should be a little disclaimer," said Meyers.
