Why $556 for two months' service of a $39/month promo?

I got a promo flyer in the mail in early January that I could get phone & internet bundled for $39 total a month. I called and the person I spoke to confirmed the deal. First bill I got was for $111, which I understand because service guys had to come hook stuff up.  Then $39 was the next bill, which I paid.

 

Less than one month later, I get a letter from AT&T "Did you forget to pay your bill? You owe $445".  Two separate calls of more than one hour each got me nowhere. 

"You know, of course, that your regular bill will be $69 a month and we had to divide the service charge into three increments and there WAS that $8 late fee because we didn't send you a bill."

       I've gotten absolutely nowhere in any of all of this.

 

A lot of runaround and circular "But remember, you don't owe us anything" and no real itemization of the $445.  How do I get an actual itemized bill sent to me?

It took an email to the Better Business Bureau to get anywhere with this.  Still not happy that the original sales person did not let me know of all the charges ahead of time, AND that the second supervisor I talked to had no information about the first supervisor lowering my monthly charge, but they gave me a $108 credit which is about all I can expect

Who gets to say whether a charge is "unnecessary" or not?

What kind of "unnecessary" charges?  I've looked at my bill and not seeing it.

Nope. Overwhelmingly excellent credit for 20+ years.  I just checked my bill and they refunded $300 of it, so I'm satisfied.  Customer service got me nowhere. It took a call to the Better Business Bureau to get any attention.
