Billed to leave you speechless

AT&T's iPhone bills will leave you speechless. Literally. 'Cos by the time you finish reading them you will be outta breath. Literally.

NY Times reports that Justine Ezarik, a video blogger in Pittsburgh, found on her doorstep, a 300-page, double-sided, excruciatingly well itemized bill from AT&T. Ms. Ezarik, made a one-minute video that shows her flipping through the voluminous bill and posted it to YouTube and other video-sharing sites. The video has since been viewed more than three million times.

For the last several weeks, iPhone users have been by turns amused or enraged over the sheer heft — some are the size of small novels — of the bills they are receiving from AT&T. In response to Ms. Ezarik and scores of others, AT&T’s wireless business sent text messages to all its iPhone users to let them know that it will be sending them summarized bills from now on.
