The 300-Page Massive iPhone Bill

If you haven't already seen it, check out this video of the massive, 300-page iPhone bill. Pittsburgh-area blogger Justine Ezarik received her first iPhone bill in a box. It seems AT&T listed all the items called "Data Transfer" individually on the bill. Even though most of these items weren't charged, it added up to a whopper of a bill delivered in a box. That's customer service. Ezarik isn't the only person to report issues with her iPho

If you haven't already seen it, check out this video of the massive, 300-page iPhone bill. Pittsburgh-area blogger Justine Ezarik received her first iPhone bill in a box. It seems AT&T listed all the items called "Data Transfer" individually on the bill. Even though most of these items weren't charged, it added up to a whopper of a bill delivered in a box. That's customer service. Ezarik isn't the only person to report issues with her iPhone billing.Another blogger, Adam Aronson, received the world's biggest bill in terms of cost. Adam rang up a staggering $5,086.66 in roaming charges when he took his iPhone to the U.K. Apparently, he didn't make any calls; he just surfed the Web:

Well as you may have guessed by now these are all charges for using the edge network while roaming internationally (in England). No phone calls mind you just data. According to AT&T that's at a rate of $2cents per K! WTF? Why don't you rape me and my whole family while you're at it? From all you can use for $20 bucks a month to $2cents per K?! $20 per web-page? Are you INSANE?

That's like charging you $2cents per molecule of gas for you car!

I was taken aback that I was charged at all for this, I mean doesn't my plan include all you can use data? And don't you have to call the cell company to activate overseas usage in advance?

Have any of you had any issues with your iPhone bills? If so, tell us about it.
