I thought US carriers monthly service price for Apple Watch LTE service was supposed to be $10 a month. I just saw our T-Mobile fee after the initial free 3 months was over - and here is what was specifically listed in the bill. Yes, the government surcharges are not up to T-Mobile. But why $13.50 rather than $10? Anyone else using T-Mobile (or for that matter AT&T or Verizon)? How much are you being charged?

DIGITS Apple Watch: $15.00


Included Products and Services. $13.50

Included Government taxes and fees

Public Safety Communications $1.20
Surcharge County 911 $0.30

Subtotal: $15.00

The only way to get the $10 base Digits: Apple Watch fee is to use AutoPay.

Details: Pricing reflects AutoPay discount; without AutoPay, $5 more/line. Up to 5 numbers per device and up to 5 devices per number. DIGITS supports 911 but calls and texts to 911 work best from your landline or primary cell phone/number and without using Wi-Fi; always provide your actual location and callback number to 911 operator; callback may be answered by others sharing your DIGITS line. See DIGITS Terms of Use for additional 911 information.

ETA: This will be a flat $10 charge including all the basic Digits line, add-on fees and charges only when using AutoPay.
