It ain’t because of talkin’ too much

MIAMI (AP) — A South Florida woman got a shock when she opened a recent cell phone bill: she owed $201,000.

It was no mistake.

Celina Aarons has her two deaf-mute brothers on her plan. They communicate by texting and use their phones to watch videos.
Normally, that’s not a problem. Aarons has the appropriate data plan and her bill is about $175.

But her brothers spent two weeks in Canada and Aarons never changed to an international plan. Her brothers sent over 2,000 texts and also downloaded videos, sometimes racking up $2,000 in data charges.

T-Mobile told Aarons the bill was correct. She called Miami TV station WSVN, which contacted T-Mobile. The station reports (http://bit.ly/qTMjTw ) that T-Mobile cut Aarons’ bill to $2,500 and gave her six months to pay.
