I would normally just call customer service with a question like this, but I'm at work and don't have time and I'm also curious what experience others are having. I'm new to Verizon...purchased 2 droids on November 22 online. I received them a couple days later and we have been using them since and enjoying every minute of it. I just got my first bill from Verizon in the mail yesterday. Before I even opened it I thought it was odd that I was receiving a bill already, barely 2 weeks after starting service. Anyway, the Bill is for the full amount of a month of service...for us it's about $144, which is about what I expected, but the billing period is listed as Nov. 23-25. Am I understanding this wrong or did they just bill me a full month's worth of service for only 3 days out of the month?! Does Verizon not pro-rate their monthly plans when you first sign up? Any other new Verizon customers experiencing this? I plan to call them and argue this when I have a chance, but if they don't budge I'm seriously considering dropping the contract since I'm within the 30 day window still.
