Submission + - AT&T Slaps Family With a $19,370 Cell Phone Bi 1

theodp writes: "Mama, don't let your babies send e-mail and photos from Vancouver. A Portland family racked up nearly $20,000 in charges on their AT&T bill after their son headed north to Vancouver and used a laptop with an AirCard twenty-one times to send photos and e-mails back home. The family said they wished they would have received some kind of warning before receiving their chock-full-of-international-fees 200-page bill in the mail for $19,370. Guess they didn't read the fine print in that 'Stay connected whether you are traveling across town, the U.S., or the world' AT&T AirCard pitch. Hey, at least it wasn't $85,000."
