As I was writing yesterday’s article, I logged onto my wireless account. That’s when I noticed that I was being charged about $80 extra a month – that’s a lot of money.
So, I called my service provider, asked questions about the iPhone 5C and 5S, and then asked about my bill. It seems that they split the charges for my bill in half. I now had two bills – one for my iPhones and one for my iPads, when everything was supposed to bundled.
The tablets should only cost me $10 extra, each month. Instead, I was being billed $50 per tablet each month; this has been going on since December 2012.
It took about forty-five minutes of phone time, but it was worth it. They checked the account, fixed it, gave me an immediate $80 credit, and $80 credits for the next eight or nine months. That’s a lot of cash.
So, if you haven’t already set up a wireless account to check your usage, bills, etc., you might want to think about doing this. Yes, you can check your paper bill when it arrives in the mail, but if you are on an automatic payment plan, through your credit card, it might just slip by you.
You can also download, myAT&T, My Verizon Mobile, or T-Mobile My Account, through Apple’s App Store. Admittedly, these don’t get the best ratings, but it should allow you to check your mobile account on the go.
Follow the prompts to set up your account, and occasionally check it. It might be worth your while.
iPads and iPhones can be purchased at the Apple Store, Westfarms Mall, Farmington, CT, and your local Best Buy (Simsbury and Newington). These devices can also be purchased through ATT, Verizon, and T Mobile.
