    Between the bill, the pro-rated amount from last bill...the new phone service....it always is an eye opener.

    I got my bill via Verizon online, and thought...Holy Cow...but after the Pro Rates, the bill will return to normal.

    Yeah, your situation sounds like mine. My Droid, my wife's BB Curve, our oldest daughter's HTC Touch Pro and our youngest daughter's Samsung Hue + a USB cell card + three data plans + Internet (for cell card) + insurance on all four phones. I do the "Holy Cow, that's more than my car payment!?!" thing :icon_eek: EVERY month.

    [BTW, before anyone asks, we are Alltel converts]

    Yea it's always painful to see the bill with already having $30 for data, a $70 plan, pro rated months, and a new device $200.

    They're saying my monthly access charges were $110 roughly.. WTF? My plan shouldn't be prorated, so I'm going to have to call.

    We're suppose to get 20%, but because of Verizon's new found interest in the medical field we get the maximum 25%- as long as the phone is related to our profession within the hospital. I used the Droid for remote access to patient records and the such (in medical school/internship) so I'm allowed the discount =)
