It depends - your current phone will not work on att, so the cost of the new phone needs to be factored in. If you are out of contract with verizon then you can port your number with just the final bill, if in contract you have the etf.

Your first bill will typicall look like this

 

$36 activation fee + Partial Month Charge + Full Month charge + Tax

 

If for example your typical bill  may be $100, and you happened to start a week before the bill cycle that's assigned to you, You may see a bill $180 for the combination of everything.

 

If you choose AT&T Next instead of the typical 2 year contract pricing on phones, you won't have the activation fee, but may have your first installment for equipment.

Often times you can call and change your bill cycle date the same day you start service, before a bill gets put together, but the farther it gets pushed out, the more the partial month charge will be.

Usually not. but AT&T does have some incentives for switching.
