    Why is my bill different than what was originally quoted?

    Your estimated charges include normal monthly charges plus charges related to a change in service, such as a one-time fee, a partial month charge or a credit for a change in service made in the middle of your bill cycle. Your bill estimate may exclude the following:

    • Credits for promotions that last 3 months or less
    • Unpaid bill charges
    • Pending adjustments
    • Pending orders
    • Usage charges such as toll or long distance including international calls, pay per view or video on demand

    Why is my bill different each month?

    Several conditions could cause your bill to vary each month including:

    • A promotion starting or ending
    • A change in your service resulting in a one-time fee, a partial month charge or a credit for a change made in the middle of your bill cycle
    • Unpaid bill charge
    • Pending adjustments
    • Pending orders
    • Usage charges such as toll or long distance including international calls, pay per view or on demand
    • Tax charges can vary slightly depending on the number of days in the month

    Where is the credit or adjustment I was expecting to see on my bill?

    It may take up to two billing cycles for credits to be applied to your account and appear on your bill. If an expected credit or adjustment has not appeared within that time, visit our Contact Us page for information and to select your preferred method of contact.

    Why was I charged for a service that was free for 90 days?

    Many of our promotions will be reflected on your bill as both a charge and a corresponding credit for the promotional period. This serves as a reminder of the promotions you have and the value of the offer, as well as the rate you will be charged when the promotion expires.

    Because we bill in advance, you may see charges earlier than you expected to, but the charges will be for the period after the promotion expires. Should you decide to not retain a service and disconnect prior to the promotion period ending, your next bill will reflect the credit for the charges that were billed in advance.

    What can I do if I don’t understand my bill?

    Get the support you need to understand your bill 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with the click of your mouse.

    Here are a couple of points to keep in mind as you review your bill:


    • Verizon bills one month in advance for most services.
      The exclusions are pay-per-use services such as video-on-demand or usage-based voice calling plans, as well as certain voice services in Massachusetts and Rhode Island

    • If you made a change to your service in the middle of your bill cycle you will also see partial month charges or one time charges

    Back to top

    What is the balance that I currently owe?

    Your balance can be found on the first page of your bill. It includes your current charges plus any unpaid amount from the last bill. You can view your current bill or prior bills, pay your bill, add services, or make changes to your account and profile online at My Verizon.

    Your bill includes federal, state and local taxes, governmental surcharges and fees as well as Verizon surcharges and fees.

For more information about these various charges and their definitions, visit our Taxes and Charges page. You can view the charges on your own bill at My Verizon.

    Why is there a charge from another service provider on my Verizon bill?

    You may elect to bill certain third party services to your Verizon bill. Verizon places these charges on your bill, in the Other Providers section, as a service to your chosen provider. Contact information for your provider is also included in the Other Providers section of your bill. Please contact your provider if you have any questions regarding their service or the charges appearing on your bill.

    What is a late payment charge?

    Late payment charges may apply in some states. Where invoked, it applies to the amount past due. If your account has an outstanding balance, you may see a message on your bill specifying the exact late payment charge, which may be an amount or a specific percentage added to your account.
