Tot Racks Up $200 in Charges on Mom’s iPhone

AOL Video

Are you smarter than a one-year-old?  Jeff and Holly Hall may have to think about it after their 20-month-old girl went on a $200 shopping spree on mom’s iPhone.

Holly Drumb Hall was shocked when she received an email saying she’d been charged more than $200 for a game called ‘Frisbee Forever.’ London Hall (the child, not the British music venue) was apparently being babysat by an iPhone when she purchased two $99 packages of coins in the free app. The child’s parents had to contact the app’s developers to get the charges taken off their account.

The Oklahoma City dad seemed amused by his being duped by his own speechless daughter, saying “You have to be impressed with her ability to problem solve and to work her way through things.” Their two older boys [ages 5 and 7] can be seen in online coverage of the story playing Nintendo DS games.

More amazing in all this is the fact the kid was able to get through the 800 password reentries just to download something from the App Store.
