A California teen is brushing up on his letter writing skills after his parents received what can only be described as a whopper of a phone bill, totaling on $22,000!

Ted Estrajira was shocked to find that his teen son accrued $21,197 in fees after downloading several items to his phone. The fees were incurred due to his use of data while lacking a data plan.

The text friendly kid used 1.4 million kilobytes, the equivalent of an hour of played videos or 200 downloaded ringtones, with Verizon charging per megabyte.

The nation’s largest 3G supplier agreed to credit Estarija with money that he paid on the account and agreed to waive the fee. Young Estarija lost his phone privileges only one month after getting the device.
