New York City sues T-Mobile for tricking customers

New York City is suing T-Mobile for tricking customers on phone costs, return policies and whether phones are new or used

NEW YORK -- New York City is suing T-Mobile for what it calls "abusive sales tactics" at Metro by T-Mobile stores, the wireless carrier's prepaid phone brand.

The city filed its lawsuit in a New York state court on Wednesday. New York's attorney general is separately leading a coalition of states in suing to block T-Mobile's $26.5 billion deal for rival carrier Sprint.

T-Mobile says it's investigating, as the allegations are "at odds with the integrity of our team."
