I'm a new customer coming from VZW, I preordered my iphone last night (after trying for over an hour ) and I purchased the 64GB, my final total after taxes and fees was $484.
I stupidly assumed that covered the activation fee, which is why it was so much. I was wrong.
Can someone break down the taxes and fees to me and explain why they were $85? Seems a bit extreme to me. Was it because I'm a new customer and had to pay to open an account or something?
My BF bought the same phone on VZW and his total was $450.
It's already a done deal so it's not like I'm going to change my mind, I'm just wondering what I'm paying for. Thanks!
(I was going to call customer service, but waiting on hold for over 20 mins isn't my cup of tea.)
yea that is odd indeed. Did you order from the website or by phone? I almost got the 64gb but opted for the 32gb since i wont have music on my phone I just stream. Anyways back to the Cost
-$150 New Customer
Apple Care Optional
Taxes (whatever yurt tax rate is)
Ill use my TX rate Nevada 8.1
$432.38 + Activation later on $36
my 32gb is 330.37 in the end its 366.37
Just want to know that $85 included Activation fees or not? For taxes and fee info please visit this site :-
$85 Dollars should even be there if you are a new customer $36 dollars for activation and or Upgrade thats all. Shouldnt even be a prorate fee since the phone is not in your hand. You may need to call and leave your phone on speaker until someone answers. Thats what I did last night...lol took 18mins to get an Rep, but got great service once i did.
Thanks for the help. I checked my bank account and it shows I was charged $467. But my receipt still says $484. Oh well.
@MartinezPearce1, when I told my boyfriend I was charged $467, he told me the same thing. Verizon did the same thing to him. Is that even legal? Can they do that?
the amount on your receipt is based off of your billing address and is adjusted based on where it ships. most places out west have extra fees for fed state local and environmental. what ever is on bank acct/credit card is the final amount charged. happens to me all the time. also you first bill depending on your billing cycle date can cover up to 2 months plus your activation fee because sprint most times bill in advance so be prepared for that!!
I got my tracking number a few hours ago! I just tracked it, I love that they gave me the tracking number then the links to ups, fedex and usps. Like, here you go, figure out who's bringing it. lol. I tracked it and it's in the next city over. I will have my phone tomorrow! I'm pretty excited.
