We could use your help on the Uverse side!
I know prorated billing used to confuse me especially the first bill so I'll try to give an example that may make it easier to understand. Let's say you start new service where the bill cycle ends in 7 days. To estimate your first bill take the plan you are on ( lets use 39.99) rounded to 40 to make it easier. First take the price plan (40) each month and divide by 30 days. This gives you the minute cost per day of 1.33 each day. Then multiply this times the number of days in the cylce (our example is 7 days). 1.33 times 7 = $9.31
Then you have to add in the entire next month airtime of $40 since you basically pay a month in advance. So a first bill with just the $40 plan after a week when the bill cuts would be aprox 40+9.31+36 application fee if applicable. Total would be 85.31 plus taxes.
Text and data would be extra but hopefully this helps to explain why prorated bills are bigger than normal.
If my numbers are off feel free to correct.
