    The billing cycle for my ATT account ends on the 22nd. If I were to go ahead and activate it now, will I get charge a whole week's data fee? I ordered my iphone from ATT online.

    You'll get a weeks worth of prorated charges to your bill. Go ahead and activate it unless you want to show it off as a paperweight.

    I heard if you activate it on september 30 the antenna problem will be fixed. :D


    /jk but yeah just do it now, ($15) for 1500 texts, OLD PLAN $14 for 1500, and then new plan $1 for 1500. So basically they do a little math for you.

    Prorating means charging for what was used. They will only charge you how much it costs for while it was active. Say your monthly bill is $100 and you use it 7 days of that first billing cycle, you will be charged around $25.

    Yup, I'm sure AT&T didn't think of this, you'll be fine with your free week.
