Charges to use Prepaid Number?

Hello

 

I recently signed contract for two years for two lines. Before I was using At&t TO GO service. I was asked if I liked to move previous number to this new phone and I agreed. No one has informed me about the hidden $40 charges behind this. No company charge to use the previous number for new phone. As I got two lines I am charged $80 for both line and that is other than the activation and other charges that I have paid when I purchased the phone. I definitely don't want to pay this amount and I would like to look into this matter and canceled these charges

 

Regards


Lin

Thank you for looking into this. Following are the details that shown on the bill for one line and similar for other. After inquiring I found that these charges are based on using prepaid number to postpaid account

 

One Time Charge for Upgrade Fee$18.00
Service Change Fee$18.00
Regulatory Cost Recovery Charge$0.46
Federal Universal Service Charge$4.61
State Public Utility Surcharge$0.10
