On holiday to Portugal, a Salford man downloaded an episode of 'Lost' (and a few music tracks).

The bill? 31,500 pounds.

Watch what you're doing with UK phones when you come to Cyprus. Shocked

Should his phone not have cut off when he reached the threshold agreed with his service provider.

Apparently his provider (Yes Telecom) didn't do this.

personlly speaking, I go on holiday to get away from the TV, couldn't think of anything worse than wanting to see an episode of something....I'm sure it would be repeated the following week somewhere in the digital world, especially these days on Sky and Virgin!!

on the off chance we can't sleep one night and might want to watch something (and I haven't bothered to ask for tv in the room) I've put some mythbusters clips and thumbwars on my mobile.... (will probably add some other stuff before we go)... ah technology.... I remember when a radiogram without 78 speed was something special !.....
