    you can get that activation fee removed pretty easily.

    Looks like your bill cycle starts on the 17th and you got a month and a half worth of bills there.

    Prorated bills are almost always pretty damn high. Nothing should surprise you here... only that the government are thieves and tax the hell out of us.

    Seems like your normal bill should be around $100 with the plan and options you've chosen. Nothing seems fishy, but it's a big hit on the taxes and fees. That's 20% of your cost for 0% use or return and a reason why I generally hate user fee/taxes. You'll never know where that 20% goes.

    Mine came to $191, but that's for 3 lines, (Pre 23% discount) pro rated 1 week.
    No activation fee X3 for me at least. Hopefully bill will be around $155 once everything is in order.

    Mine's 174. I was PO'd at first till I realized it was for a month and a half worth of service and an activation fee (which we should all expect to see if new customers). Dur... Now that I think about it... that's only 50 bucks more than my AT&T bill was for one month of service. Haha, sucks for iphone 4 buyers!

    Mine was $75 after my discount and when I called to ask about the activation fee they took $59 off (Why so much, IDK but I am not complaining) so it ended up as $15
