Activation of phone date


My billing date starts before my phone was activated. The phone was DELIVERED 09.03 19, at 12:22 PM PST.  Because I was out of town, I didn't activate my phone until 09.11.19. I keep telling everyone and anyone at Verizon this. I also ported my number on the same day.

Shouldn't my account be billed each month based upon the date phone was activated?  Shouldn't my month be xx/11/xxxx to xx/11/xxxx? NOT 09/02/19?

I am being billed from August 30th to September 2and. My phone wasn't DELIVERED until September 3rd. Why am I  being charged for a phone I haven't received or activated?

August 30 phone shipped

September 03 recieved email 05:45 thanking me for activation of my phone

September 03 phone delivered 12:22 PM

September 11 phone number ported to Verizon and phone activated

September 11 recieved bill for $195 and change due September 24.

My bill was from Aug 02 to September  02.  That has change to August 30 to September 02 .

I've talked and texted until I'm blue in the face and no one seems to get it or care.

What are my options? September 24th is just around the corner.
