    Well,

    I got THE bill for the first FULL month. Dang, that hurts! Tax, tag and title for the services (Unlimited talk and 10 dollar messaging package) is

    $160.00 bux/month!

    This should come with a hooker. Seriously.

    I got rid of the text messeging. Oh well. Cool phone though. :icon_ devil:

    Did you take time to actually read the bill?

    They pro-rate the month you start in and the next IIRC....

    Yes I did fellow AC/DC fan (I have to imagine there was a nicer way to ask that question) line by line, kind of you to ask though. 25 bux are taxes and a surchage that Verizon charges (it think it is their portion of state and local taxes they pass on to the consumer). This was my 1st full month of charges as indicated previousy. My previous month was all the other charges with firing this little beast up!

    All I am sayin' is, OUCH!

    Happy new year all! :)

    I paid $0.00 this month and I have 38.00 credit still. They screwed up my rebate so I got $100.00 credit last month.

    What, did you guys not pay for the phone up front?

    Edit: I think the regular bill is around 74.00 a month.

    Yea 1400 minutes unlimited text ($30) 2 smart phones at $30 ea. I do believe VBZW should offer the 1400 family plan with unlimited text included. Just another way to get a little extra from me

    Mine is just over $200. Family share, 700 minutes, 3 lines. Unlimited text and data. It could be worse.

    Exactly....or if you do add it to your bill, don't have a heart attack when the bill comes.

    True...I've never had a reason to add one to my bill.
