I just received my first bill and was billed $40 on a $90 plan for "wireless surcharges". Is this a one-time charge? Because if it isn't, it seems like a real rip-off, something a customer should be informed about when purchasing a phone and covers expenses that should be part of Verizon doing business.
Part of the "Wireless surcharges" is the one-time line activation fee ($35?) for your new line. Another part of that is a Fed wireless fee. Expand that section on you online bill to get the exact details.
Good luck with your new phone.
