Careful what you download. A California 13-year-old is in a little trouble after running up a Verizon Wireless bill of almost $22,000. Ted Estarija’s son downloaded 1.4 million kilobytes of information last month, which totaled up to $21,917 in charges.
The cell plan did not cover data usage, so downloads were charged by the megabyte. Estarija has suspended his son’s account. Verizon is not enforcing the charges.
