Apple iPhone bills... much bigger than expected...
« on: August 13, 2007, 10:37:01 PM »
Wow... iPhone early adopters have started getting their first bills, and they are massive.  Not big as in cost... big as in 30-50 pages, double sided, of itemized internet use.

...not to mention that the items are useless since they don't really tell you anything relevant. Way to go :)

Wow. Talk about egg on Steve Job's face - how many trees died to get this month's iPhone bills out?!

ROFLMA ...

These are hilarious - $20 to open a webpage!!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Serves the idiots right ...

Actually it will be interesting when these little money grabbers arrive in Europe as there is a new legal ruling just come into force that limits the amount phone companies can charge for roaming (I think it £0.30 per minute for UK companies and the equivalent for EU services).

I love the the idea of a 300 page bill too - hernias all round for the postal service heh ... and oops there goes the rest of the Amazon rainforest?

Maybe they will stop sending paper copies and email them to the iPhone instead (it will only cost you $50 to collect your bill each time).

Brilliant ...

All I can say is what did you expect..  ;D
The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.
