Woman in Florida Receives a $200K Cell Phone Bill

A 201-thousand-dollar cell phone bill was delivered to a south Florida woman recently. And the worst part of it was, there was no mistake.

Celina Aarons has two of her brothers on her plan -- both are deaf-mutes.

They communicate by texting and also use their phones to watch videos.

Normally that's not a problems. With the right plan, Aarons' bill usually comes to about $175.

But her brothers went to Canada and Aarons never changed her plan to include international use.

Her brothers sent over 2-thousand texts, and downloaded videos, which sometimes brought data charges up to 2-thousand-dollars.

T-Mobile told her the bill was correct. After Aarons contacted the local Fox television station and the station spoke with T-Mobile, Aarons' bill was cut to 25-hundred-dollars and gave her six months to pay.
