    Hi everyone,

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who switched from AT&T (or another network) as an individual user, so I would like to see if anyone else got a similar bill.

    It looks like my first bill with Verizon is roughly $175 (with a 4gb shared data plan) as an individual.

    I checked my bill and it looks like my billing period starts on the 23rd, and ends on the 22nd. Which meant I used my new iPhone 5 with Verizon for 2 days (which I was charged a fraction - roughly $7). But looking at the current period now, it says I'll be paying a month in advance from 9/23-10/22 to be debited form me on 10/17 (which I set).

    I just wanted to know if this is a normal pay process to pay a month in advance with Verizon, or is it because it is for the first bill.

    Thanks for any insight!

    Thanks for response! October will be an expensive month for wireless service... My last bill with AT&T will come out within days of Verizon's, so it's like I'm paying $300 for the first month! Lol.

    Whew, nice catch! I thought I had erased it all, I didn't realize it was on there twice :)

    Thanks for whoever texted me as well for the heads up!

    I think it's part of the surcharge

    It's under "Verizon Wireless Surcharges and Other Charges & Credits"
