The $4,000 iPhone Bill


Like so many good boys and girl, Riptide dreams of sugar-plum fairies and Ol' Saint Nick delivering a shiny new iPhone. 'Tis the season for the 3G mobile Internet and being able to watch dumb YouTube videos of dogs dancing to Beyonce anywhere we want. 

But woah to one Miami man who had his iPhone dreams come true, only to take a short trip to France and come back with a $4,109.76 bill. So angry was he that of course a YouTube video had to be made.
