It’s the phone bill to end all phone bills. An American woman received an excruciating $201,005.44 T-Mobile charge. That’s £126,000, and no this was no computing error.

Celina Aarons from Fort Lauderdale, Florida usually admits to a hefty $175 (£110) a month bill, but thanks to 43-page marathon text session, things jumped up a notch.

Celina’s brother Shamir sent more than 2,000 texts on her phone, but left data roaming on and downloaded numerous videos while on a two-week holiday in Canada.

Celina's two brothers rely on texting as they are both mute and deaf.

She told television station WSVN: "It's never going to get paid. I can't pay that. That's like paying for a nice house right now based on what houses are going for."

WSVN got in touch with her provider and T-Mobile slashed the bill to just $2,500 (£1,600). She has six months to pay.
