Upfront cost on phone contract when purchased online


Purchased the HTC One M8 online w/ the $242 activation credit (and paid $5 for the SIM card), however my agreement shows this:

[b]Cost of your phone:
Full Retail price: $410.00
Total Tab amount: -168.00
[b]Your upfront phone cost: $242.00

Want to make sure I'm not charged the $242 as it should have been $410 - $168(tab) - $242 (activation credit) = $0 upfront cost

Thank you!

Receipt shows this

Charges for today
NEW HTC ONE M8 GREY ANDROID LTE KOODO$168.00

Hi David,

You will be charged 7$ per month to pay back the tab, plus your monthly phone plan, plus taxes.

Receipt when order was placed on Friday



Agreement received on Monday



Not sure why it has an upfront cost of $242 on the agreement when the receipt shows a cost of $0. Just want to make sure I don't get billed for the $242 in the future.

Reading between the lines from what other folks have posted here, your "activation credit" of $242 cancels out the upfront cost.

If you keep the account active for 90 days or more, you are good to go, but if you cancel before then, you may be on the hook for any activation credit or the value of any other incentives .gift cards, etc) applied at the time of purchase.

Retail Price of iPhone 5S 16 GB is $634.00.

With Tab : Upfront (= the amount you pay when you buy it )$274.00  + $360 on Tab
               You will pay $15/mo for next 24 months to pay off your tab

There is a promo with this phone now as "Activation credit" of $274
So, your upfront cost will be $0.
(You still have tab fee to pay it down each month)

Your monthly bill will be : your plan price + Tab charge.

You opened 2 lines?  Are they under one account or individual account?
How about phone? Did you buy 2 iPhone 5s?

Your monthly charge should be:
 $65 plan + $15 tab charge = $80 + tax +(overage if any)/mo
And  $40 plan + $15 tab charge + $55 + tax +(overage if any)/mo

If 2 lines are under 1 account > $135 + tax +(overage if any)/mo

Then, your billing cycle is not 12th of the month to 11th of the next month.
Can you log into your self serve and check your billing cycle?

It's usually 3 to 7 days after the activation date. It seems system determined your billing cycle depends on your address/ activation day.

Oh. I never seen ppl that opening date is the first date of the billing cycle...

Then your first bill should be the number I gave you above.

Add:And you should receive your first bill very soon.
       Your first bill usually includes partial amount + 1 month full bill.

NP   :)
After you received your first bill and if you have more question, come back any time. We should be able to  explain about it.
