    Last month, I activated my Iphone with a Blackberry Data Plan for $30month. Only got a few of the annoying Text Messages from ATT.

    Yesterday was the end of my first month. I went online to check my bill. First, (not surprisingly) it lists my device as Iphone. But, it correctly lists my plan as the unlimited Blackberry.

    However, it lists my balance due as $116.80 for the first month! :eek:

    It is frustrating, because it says "billing details" will not be viewable for 10 days.

    I used no voice, other than one accidental 1 min call. Any ideas???

    First, isn't the BB plan you're paying for the same price as the iPhone plan?
    Second, your bill is prorated then billed in advance.
    Third, questions about your bill? CALL AT&T!

    PS: Eventually they will notice your BB plan with your iPhone and fix that for you. ;)

    well... hard to see how they could "fix" unless they give me a voice plan I never ordered (but one is not listed on my online account.

    yes, it's the same, but no voice plan.

    not anxious to call ATT and incurr their "wrath" for using th BB SIM in the Iphone.

    So you're surprised that AT&T is charging you for what you're using, not what you think you should be charged?

    Not uncommon for 1st month's bill

    There are several startup charges you get on your 1st bill from ATT. I suspect you will see a reduction on the 2nd month's bill. And as a previous responder suggested CALL ATT.:eek:

    That sounds about right

    First bill has

    1. Prorated charge for days used before next billing cycle.
    2. Next Months charge.
    3. Activation charge(if applicable)
    4. taxes.

    yeah, that sounds exactly like what it could be.
