This is the most I've ever seen for a phone bill.

By sprint it would be something like $2.05 or whatever the taxes are.

Back on the day the Nextel bill for my father's office was $80k+. The bill was about an inch thick.

The bill was reduced to $2500.00 and she was given 6 months to pay.

Pretty nice of T-Mobile.

+1 impressive.
They are probably suffering a loss since they have to pay the Canadians (or not).

What I wonder is if its a pure PR move why didn't the just cancel the bill out... whats 2,500 out of 200,000?

They probably don't want people to do the same thing and excpect T-Mobile to let them off for free...

Wow! what did the person do to reach that amount, unless it was carried over from a few months

sorry i meant they should have made her pay the bill
it was in the contract that she would be charged roaming and she was why does she deserve a break if it was her fault that the bill was so much

No one necessarily said she DESERVED one... but I'd want one if it happened to me by accident.

If they had made her par the bill they never would have seen any of it now they got something
