Hey tjxolo,

 

There are couple of possibilities (you can see what the charges are for on your bill), could be data or minutes overages, $2 on your basic phone is definitely for ppu data access. Have you made any changes to your plan recently?

Yeah, that's kind of high. Do you have a bill you can look at?

If this is the first bill after adding the line the bill is pro-rated for that new line. The bill is broken down by cell number, go through each line and see where the additional charges are at. suspect a majority of it will be on the new line

 

look at this link to see how the bill is broken down and how it is pro-rated

Hi tjxolo,

 

I think may be on the right track with the explanation of prorated charges for your bill. One of our managers will be reaching out to you shortly for some more information so we can go over the bill with you in detail.

 

Thanks!
