Apple iPhone user gets boxed 300-page AT&T phone bill

“Early adopters of Apple’s iPhone are getting their first service bills from AT&T — and some customers say they are so detailed they belong in libraries.
Justine Ezarik, a Pittsburgh graphic designer and active Internet blogger, got her first bill on Saturday. She says it was so huge — 300 pages — it was delivered in a box. AT&T detailed every text message and Internet use for her billing period. ‘This is so silly,’ she told USA TODAY. ‘There’s no reason they need to send you this much information,'” Jefferson Graham reports for USA Today.

KDSK-TV reports, “AT&T said that customers have three bill options and they don’t have to select one with all of the detail, which would save paper. Ezarik says she’ll use the online billing in the future.”

  1. She’s the type of girl who, though intelligent, never needs to crack open a book to be successful in life. But 30,000 text messages in a single month–Jeez!! I bet her boyfriend feels neglected. Oops, or her girlfriend…uh, wow.

  2. Yeow, like ‘pr’ says – can imagine she’s getting a LOT of ‘incoming’ calls/messages/whatever.

    But – after doing some quick math from 2 years of my ATT/Cingular bills, which average about 40 pages a month and about 40-50 odd items per page – can figure this girl must spend ALL her time ON the phone, so she maybe doesn’t have much of a real life in the non-cyber world.

    What a waste of young blonde bandwidth 🙁

  3. Oh well! Damned if you do, damned if you don’t! If the bills aren’t detailed enough, then there’ll be whining along the lines of, “How do I know what I’m paying for?” Unfortunately, she’s probably a chronic iPhonemaniac.
