Canadian charged $85k in mobile web charges

CashmoneyHeh, some poor shmuck in Calgary thought that that his “unlimited mobile web browsing” plan with Bell included tethered connections to his PC. So, after some regular usage, including downloading high-def movies over his KRZR’s connection, Piotr Staniaszek got a beefy bill in the mail amounting to almost $85,000. Luckily, Bell wasn’t completely heartless, and were willing to knock down the charge to $5,000, but that’s still a pretty expensive lesson to learn.

I hear about stuff like this pretty much on a monthly basis working for AT&T.
