    In a period of about two months, including time she was on sick leave, she incurred bills in excess of £2,300.

    Ok so it's possible that the above bill included overseas calls (although I would imagine that overseas calls can be blocked) but it certainly sounds as if the NHS needs to look at ist mobile phone contracts. Looking up one of the comparison sites you can get unlimited minutes for 27 pounds a month or less.

    Two times 27 is uhhh..........., 1, 2, 3,.........., 54 pounds. True there's not much between that and 23000 pounds.

    Bill

    In all but one of the cases above, the defendant 'was not present or represented at the hearing'.

    Is that a valuable strategy?

    That would be lots of data downloads...

    unknowingly I listened to internet radio for a few hours over two days, and got slugged with a $320 bill for that month (usual bill is capped at $45 unlimited calls)

    Cracks me up this; when I was "Academic mentor" at the university college, every Wednesday night, the "Residential Assistances" would come round for a glass or three. As they came in through the back door they passed the fridge - together with its bills waiting to be paid. There was my mobile bill. One lass - for whom I have the highest regard, said to me "Rob - 38 bucks (20 quid): how do you keep it so low (hers was $150). I had not the heart to tell her that this was for two phones - hers and mine.
