My phone bill is $39.00 and I want to change it to the $44.00 would I have to pay the first amount this bill coming up or would I pay both amounts?

If you change before your billing periods ends your both plans will be prorated. This means you'll pay a part of the 39 and a part of the 44.

For example, you are in 1/4 of your billing period.

You'll pay 1/4 * 39$ + 3/4 * 44$

Keep in mind that your minutes and text will be prorated. So if you went over, the fact to change for a bigger plan won't reduce the overage costs!

You'll need to pay the day your billing cycles ends and not when the amount is due. If you change when the billing cycle ends, you'll be paying 44$ on the next bill you'll receive

If that's the day your billing cycle ends then yes! :)
