What is the biggest phone bill you've ever gotten?

I had a brother run up a $900 phone bill once when he took a trip cross country and forgot he only had state wide coverage.

What is the biggest phone bill you have ever gotten and why?

Never really had a big phone bill, but once I spent aroun 40 on o2 topups because I used my free texts intially so fast! But that was back when I was working.

But even still, 40 is a lot!

$900 wow, thats a mortgage payment. I am careful with my phone and the biggest bill has probably been about $100 CAD. I am a single mom so I have to watch what I spend. Even that was way more than I should have ever spent.

Well my biggest was just under $100. I am also in Canada and the problem here is that we have sucky plans with hardly any minutes. Evenings and weekends start at 8pm unless we want to spend more money. So its real easy to go over on minutes. I usually get the cheapest plan which is $20 but it only includes 100 minutes daytime minutes. So most people are doing their calling before 8pm, so as I said, its easy to kiss those daytime minutes goodbye.

I guess $800 is the net difference in maturity.

...$735 over two months, after which I told the girl, we either get married or cut our loses. The ring was becoming cheaper and cheaper by the minute.

$192.13 when I called France from my cell phone, when I forgot to use my phone card, and was on the phone for three hours. Oops!

Biggest was $200 dollars. I went over my minutes because of my job. After that, I increased my minutes so that would never happen again!

My biggest was only about 34 which was only a couple of pounds over my monthly contract. That also included going abroad without letting O2 know and they just used my free texts and minutes as normal. I was very impressed.

The first few months after I got my phone, I would regularly get $150+ bills. I initially thought I was just going over on minutes, but it turned out the store where I activated my plan had given me a text message plan instead of an actually talking plan. The problem was solved, but I still don't understand how they could confuse the two.
