I have a Samsung Galaxy phone and accidentally paid off the full tab for my phone (it was previously $15/month). Luckily I am able to pay this, but on my bill it charges the $15 tab and then says "Balance forward from last month -$15" - so it evens out and is not charging me extra, but I am wondering why this appears on my phone bill at all and what will happen when I reach the end of the contract.

Hello Andrea.

It appears on your bill because this month you were supposed to pay for tab. But because you decided to pay the full tab, it now deducts the tab you were supposed to pay this month. I think it will only happen this month. On your other months, you won't see those charges on your account anymore!
