This one is from our friends south of the border who came to our great land and sprung a HUGE bill. Celina Aarons and her two deaf-mute brothers all share a plan and the only way they communicate is via text messages. The brothers came to Canada for a couple weeks and she forgot to change the plan, activating roaming, and dolled up over 2,000 text messages and watched a few videos. Upon opening the 43 page bill the total came out to be $201,000. Aarons stated that “I was freaking out. I was shaking, crying, I couldn’t even talk that much on the phone. I was like my life is over!”. T-Mobile graciously reduced the bill to $2,500 and gave the family 6 months to pay.
