    A customer upgraded his services from the $129.99 to the $159.99 bundle.  His billing cycle is A/20 and he made the change on July 8th.  How would you calculate his partial charge? 

    • A.

      ($129.99/30)*12 days

    • B.

      ($159.99/31)*13 days

    • C.

      ($159.99/31)*12 days

    • D.

      ($129.99/31)*12 days

    Correct Answer
    C. ($159.99/31)*12 days
    Explanation
    The customer upgraded to the $159.99 bundle, which has a billing cycle of 31 days. The partial charge is calculated by dividing the cost of the bundle by the number of days in the billing cycle and then multiplying it by the number of days the customer used the service. In this case, the customer used the service for 12 days, so the partial charge would be ($159.99/31)*12 days.

    If a customer has filed for Bankruptcy, the equipment charges may be included in the bankruptcy write-off if the equipment was stolen. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

In this case, if the equipment charges were included in the bankruptcy, it means that they were listed as a debt to be discharged. If the equipment was stolen, it would be considered a loss and therefore included in the bankruptcy write-off. Therefore, the statement "the equipment charges may be included in the bankruptcy write-off if the equipment was stolen" is true.

    A. True
    Explanation
    A compliant upgrade refers to a situation where a customer is sold an additional core product, such as cable, phone, or internet, along with an increase in price of at least $15 per month.
