How to Check a Phone Bill Online

By Michelle Varsallona

You do not have to wait for your cell or home phone bill to come in the mail to view it. At any time you can go to your phone service provider’s website to view your ongoing usage, and you can also use it to view your latest bill and even past bills. Phone service providers also give you the choice to completely stop your paper billing and do everything electronically. Using the internet to check your bill makes the process of viewing and paying the bill faster, since you do not need to wait for the paper bill and mail a check.

Step 1

Open your web browser.

Step 2

Go to your phone service provider’s website.

Step 3

Log into your account. Somewhere on the front page there will be a place to enter your username and password. If you do not have an account, register for one by clicking the link under the password box. Registering for an account will require both some personal information and information on your phone service.

Step 4

Click on the link that will say “Make a payment,” “Pay my bill,” etc. Depending on your provider the exact wording will vary.

Step 5

View your bill. You can view the bill and usage details from the latest billing period. You will also be able to pay your bill online.
