    So, I looked at my bank account today. I noticed an item from AT&T with an amount of $106.24. The payment also mentioned 11/07 (the day I preordered) so I'm pretty sure it's the 920 order. The question is:

    Why is it $106.24 ($99.99 * (1 + 6.25% MA sales tax))?

    Shouldn't I pay tax on the full price? And should there be an activation fee? My order confirmation said:

    One-Time Charges
    Phone/Device
    Nokia Lumia 920 (High Gloss Yellow) $199.99
    Offer Discount -$100.00
    Accessories
    1 - Nokia Black Wireless Charging Plate $49.00
    Regular Promotion -$49.00
    Services & Fees
    Upgrade Fee $36.00
    One-Time Preorder Charges*** $135.99
    Estimated Tax*** $26.81
    Preorder Shipping*** $0.00
    Total One-Time Charges $162.80


    So I am very confused now, although I'm happy that I got an discount. Any thoughts?

    Pretty sure it said that the upgrade fee will appear on the cell phone bill.

    When I bought my first phone I was definitely charged tax on the full $450. I returned it an bought a cyan on in tax free NH though 😉

    The amount charged by AT&T is correct $106.24. Tax is calculated on sale price after discount. You would have paid tax on the full price had it been a mail in rebate or some other special circumstances. Activation fee is always charged to your next bill.

    Not true for all states. States like California and Nevada will charge tax based on full price of phone no matter what.

    Thanks, everybody. Now I'm a little pissed that last year I paid tax on full retail price for my iPhone 4S but I'm happy that this time I got this 'discount'.
