~ Why is my first bill over $42.00 more than the estimated first bill amount?

Member

When we bought our two phones, the estimated first bill was $164.86.  However, the actual first bill was $207.51.  Why the discrepancy?

So, based on that and the current pricing (IDK what it was when you signed up) that's $40+$40+$30(data)=$120 before taxes and fees. Also, your billing cycle might begin and end differently than your begin/activation date.  So you might have a partial on there for a couple bucks.

What does the line breakdown state as the charges in My Verizon or on your paper bill?  Taxes on the phones perhaps?

What plan did you sign up for?  Consider activation fees as part of the first bill as well.

How much data?  For example:  Used to be $40 line access + $60 2GB data =$100 for a single line.  2 lines would be $80 + $60 for shared 2GB.  That would be $140.  Comes down to those details.
