Question about billing

I just recently got a post paid service plan at AT&T and I was told in store that my bill would be about 84.41, but I just received the bill and almost had a heart attack, my bill is 148.41. This is my first bill with AT&T and I was not expecting something this high. Could it be possible that this is just a one time high bill or could it be my actual bill for my plan every month? If it is going to be that high every month, I will not be able to keep this plan since I go to school and have a baby on the way.

Ok I got my bill and it’s $288.81 I find that that’s really high for just having internet service. When I was told that I would only be paying 60.00 a month and the installation charge was going to be waived that I wasn’t going to have to pay that since it was an error on your company . If you will please go over my account and see that I’m only to pay 60.00 a month for internet for the first year and after that I will be paying 70.00. So I sent out in mail my payment of 100.00 today 5/18/2019

This isn’t the Internet forum, or how you reach At&t.  Paying short is a good way to get service shut off. 

Call AT&T.

Help how?  This is a customer populated forum, not AT&T.  

Someone watched movies and you have to pay the bill.  You might want to discuss with those who have access to your TV sets. Babysitter?  Teen age boy?

 You replied on someone else’s thread instead of making your own so the original person got your message and your reply in their email. Someone else has now done the exact same thing adding a third person to a thread and a third reply. 

 Neither your post nor the third post has anything whatsoever to do with wireless service. Wireless equals cell phones.
