Maybe Charging Per Megabyte is Wrong

Hello IGWers,

Another kid was charged with one heck of a cell phone bill this month. It looks like the kid wasn’t messing around. He went for the gold and in doing so racked up a nice 22,000 bill. Don’t you think Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile would have the decency to send you text if you went way over your limit. I guess not.

What a crappy way to declare bankruptcy loading games to your cell phone!

To more innovation gone wrong!

  1. Like many of us, I’ve been hearing about this story again and again and personally, it’s so hard to imagine how Estarija felt upon receiving that $21,000-plus Verizon Wireless bill. It’s such a nightmare of epic proportions, only augmented by the fact that he is recently out of work. And the human factor continues here with Estarija’s son, who apparently is taking the predicament very hard. But from a practical perspective, I wanted to respond with a strategy for eliminating those large bills before they even happen by effectively “right sizing” your plan. I work in the consumer advocacy division of the Houston-based company Validas, where we electronically audit and subsequently reduce the average cell bill by 22% through our website, http://www.fixmycellbill.com.
