I just got the first phone bill for 0474 (they'd been sending me the consolidated bill for 2770 et al. a month or two prior to this) and it shows total amount due as $470.58.
My question is this: Is this something you're going to take care of (so we will start with a clean slate after the phone-separation) or is this per your arrangements with BellSouth, presumably roughly equivalent to the total of the 0474 bills which you calculate RDA has covered and therefore it is up to me to pay it? Would paying it therefore cancel out the phone bill debt you were saying Red House owed RDA?
If it is the latter, I would like to see some kind of figuring -- just some idea of what date you consider to be the first bill RDA covered, approximate amount of each bill, and so on. (An itemized listing would be even better, but I won't insist on that.) I would also have appreciated more notice that this was going to be the arrangement (i.e. that there would be a huge amount due from day 1), as the bill is now late and I will have very little time to scrape together a rather large amount of cash if we want to keep the phone.
If it is the former, then the ever-popular Emily Littella quote applies...
And if you have no idea why the bill is so large, then we'd probably better ask BellSouth for an accounting.
Just let me know...
I should have thought about them just sending the whole thing to you. Although it would be wonderful for you to pitch in on the phone bills for 0474 and part of the fax line for the many, many months that we've been covering all of it... I would not just shove a $470 bill at you without any discussion.
As a matter of fact, about $250 of that bill is for a phone they sent... that I returned... and should have been credited for weeks and weeks ago. I plan to call them tomorrow to see if that can be taken care of... I just paid $266.35 on 0474 on the 15th of this month and they assured me that the $250 for the phone that was returned would be handled a.s.a.p. I figured I'd look on the next bill to see if they handled it, not thinking about the change-over eliminating the part about me gettting the bill at all. Please photocopy the bill and send me a copy. When it is worked out this time... we should be able to have it go to you with the appropriate understandings in place.
Didn't mean to sound the alarms... and we can talk about the past bills, soon, that would be nice... It just shouldn't be necessary to have that all cleared up before we take care of this bill...
I'll let you know what I find out about the credit for the phone, etc. in the next couple of days. Meanwhile, I will need a copy of the bill for my figuring and for my records...
