Description: Parse the phone bill given by Orange cellphone company (

It shows the information per phone number (number of calls and text messages, and the cost/minute). I use it to check which of my friends costs me the most :)

I'm now in the UK and this is the bill they give here, but this might work in other countries. In case there's a problem with other countries, let me know.
