$85,000 for mobile porn

Share us!

I have very little sympathy for a Calgary man who racked up $85K in cellphone charges because he didn’t know you couldn’t download the entire internet to your handset.

Staniaszek said he signed up with Bell Mobility to pay $10 a month to use a mobile browser on his cellphone. “I thought it was the same thing when I plugged it into the computer and used it as a modem – I guess not,” he said yesterday.

Honestly, ten years ago, I might have thought this guy deserved a break. But everyone knows the mobile telcos are going to hose you on data charges. That might all change is anyone can ever convince one of the Big Three in Canada that they need to offer a truly unlimited data plan.

I don’t really understand how this guy could be charged so much, though. I’ve browsed the net on my phone, and it looks like absolutely dog’s ass. It’s pointless to even bother with it. Unless you have an iPhone. Then it’s preeeeeeeeetty!

    I’m not sympathetic, because the guy is obviously an idiot. I think Bell is totally overexaggerating when they asked for 85 grand, though.
