    I knew there was a heavy price to pay for being a Bears fan, but I didn't expect it to be this bad...

    That is crazy. I would think after a certain amount of charges you would get a warning or something.

    If you read the Sun-Times article, AT&T TRIED to send him a warning via text message - the only problem is they sent it to the number that was associated with the data card, something incapable of receiving phone calls and incoming texts...
