Granted, we have 5 lines with $30 data plans and texting, but my proration period was only 3 days before the new billing cycle began. We only have the 700 minute calling plan. This sounds more like two full cycles rather than 3 days plus a full cycle. Does this sound right? $654?!
700 minute plan $60.
Unlimited Family Messaging $30
Data Plan $30 x 5
Activation Fee $36 x 5
Added Line $10 x 4
60+30+150+180+40= $460 plus taxes and fees plus whatever amount was prorated for the 3 days. Definitely less than 2 full cycles. 2 full cycles would be $740 plus taxes and fees.

Hi there Carasu!
That seems about right for a first bill for 5 lines. Lets see if my calculations reflect the same result here. Okay let's get started!
700 minute plan - $60
Data plan - $30 x 5
Family Messaging - $30
Activation fees - $36 x 5
Additonal lines: $10 x 3
For Voice Proration: $60/ 30 (days in a cycle) = $2 a day x 3 (days left in cycle) = $6 + $60 (voice plan) = $66 (not including any minute overages)
Data Proration: $30/ 30 = $1 x 3 = $3 + 30(data plan cost) =$33 x5 (multiplied by the 5 lines) = $ 165 (not including any overages)
Messaging plan: $30/30 = $1 x 3 = $3 + 30(messaging cost) = $33
Activation fees: $36 x 5 = 180
So: $66 + $165 + $33 + $180 + $30 = $474 + taxes for your state = $654
Hope that helps!

I'm glad that the information I provided helped. Your first bill will always be higher than normal since AT&T charges one month in advance. Your second bill should be a lot lower than the first one!

This is likely due to the date you signed up.
Between proration and the way your service is billed, it's possible that the bulk of your "start up" costs hit on the second bill.
If you would like to talk to someone about your bill, I'd be happy to set that up; just let me know!
