Make sure you don't fall for the FREE tablet deal.  After I decided to go with the FREE tablet deal $80 x 2 later. I recieved my first $500 bill.

It sounds to me like someone didn't read and understand the full details of the plan they signed up for...

 

If your bill was for $500, it sounds like you used a large amount of data, and probably also had 2 new phones, most likely purchased using a NEXT agreement.  That is a good receipe for a large phone bil, especially if you don't keep tabs on yoru data usage acrosss all the devices (since it is a single data pool that is shared across all devices on teh plan).

If this was your first bill, it is not indicative of your regular monthly bill.  The first bill is always double.

it includes activation fees, a partial first month and a full second months bill.

 

I have 2 tablets and 6 smartphones and pay less than $300 with taxes.  All my phones are purchased at full price.
