    Hi, i used my friends upgrade.

    I went to go purchase the iPhone 4. When it came to the total. It came up to 299.00. Then total said 317.00. But, All together it was around 245.00.

    I just want to know why they charge me $17.00?

    Please Help!

    They charged you -$72 tax? That's awesome.

    I need to move to a state where they charge negative tax ;P

    Some accounts get it waived.

    Others see it on their first bill.

    Whether or not you pay the $18 activation fee really depends on the account and the upgrade line. My wife was eligible for full upgrade on her line and was waived the $18 fee. I bought my iP4 using another fully-eligible line (no activation fee), upgrade-swapped it to my line and was charged the $18.

    That was my total as well including taxes, the upgrade fee usually is bill on your next billing cycle

    Wouldn't it make more sense to ask AT&T, rather than a forum?
