I just got my cell phone bill. It was 3x the usual amount. ($167!!!!!!!!) Looking at the bill I found that every call I have made or received since July 4th has been counted as originating from or received in Harrisonburg, Va and charged as roaming. I am not now nor have I ever been in Harrisonburg, Va. I have not left my home area in months.

I checked my phone. I have roaming blocked on my phone controls. I have data locked; everything except calls and texts are blocked (my pharmacy sends free texts to tell me when my prescriptions are ready, and the state sends free alert texts).

I have called the company and they have escalated the case to the next level and George (who has no direct number) said he will try to find a solution and will email me.

My temporary solution is to shut off the damn cell.
