Giant Cellphone Bill Shocks Florida Woman


Good morning. I'm Ari Shapiro.

Celina Aarons' brother is deaf and communicates via text message. She usually pays about $175 a month for his cell phone. But he went to Canada without an international plan. The total bill was more than $200,000 for a couple of weeks. A Miami TV station intervened, and now T-Mobile says Celina Aarons only owes $2,500, and they've given her six months to pay. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
