We've all looked at our phone bill and scratched our head wondering how did it get so high?

One Merritt couple is doing the same, but instead of hundreds, they're looking at thousands of dollars in charges.

It only took three months for Daniel and Kate Methot's cell phone bill to reach the $3500 dollar mark which is interesting, considering once they saw their first bill they quit using their phone.

Daniel says Bell is being no help, telling him to stop using so much data, all the while he's hired lawyers and spent countless hours on the phone hoping Bell will figure out the problem.

It seems like nothing's changed though, with his latest bill well over a thousand dollars and still no explanation from Bell.
