Submission + - 217,000 text messages!

AlHunt writes: "Two central Pennsylvania friends spent most of March in a text-messaging record attempt — for a total of 217,000. For one of the two, that meant an inches-thick itemized bill for $26,000. Nick Andes, 29, and Doug Klinger, 30, were relying on their unlimited text messaging plans to get them through the escapade, so Andes didn't expect such a big bill.

"It came in a box that cost $27.55 to send to me" Andes said.

After a "panicked" call, Andes says his cell phone company assures him he won't have to pay it."
