I'll know the actual answer in a few days since my billing date just passed and just waiting for it to be posted, but just thought I know since I want to keep my budget numbers as tight as possible, and I want to know the actual cost of the phone I bought.

I've activated a phone on Tab Medium. Would the pro-rated part of the first bill have this charge prorated as well, i.e. (1 + 8/30) x (monthly + $5), or does the $5 start only on the second bill, i.e. first bill would only be (8/30 x monthly) + (monthly + $5)?

The Tab charge wont be prorated, you may wind up seeing 2 tab charges the first bill, but at the same time you wont ever pay more than 24 tab charges, and it goes strictly towards paying off your tab balance.
