Upgraded plan to get 5g but just paid for my previous plan a few days ago

ATT, I just paid 55 plus tax a few days ago for my plan but I now needed 5g service so I upgraded to 75 plan. It says I just added 55 a few days ago so how do I simply just pay the difference to enable this new 75 plan to be recognized because now my service is down. Help please fix this issue. I need my service quickly

Unfortunately you just wasted some money.

You must pay for the entire new plan. 

Purchasing prepaid is like buying something out of a vending machine. You should have been warned not to change your plan until the day before your renewal date. (photo) When you change your plan, you discard the previous plan and have to pay for your new plan in order to have service again.


All prepaid works this way.  

Only postpaid prorates service when you change plans.
