Being overcharged on your Wireless invoice can happen and being prepared to not only identify the overcharge as it happens but to dispute it to prevent the payment, is a must.   So how can you identify the overcharge when the invoice is over 2,000 pages?
With the addition of Data services, there are several new charge types that can confuse the invoices especially when the contract rates are not set up correctly by the vendor.  The new PVC charges with Private Mobile Connection services have several components that can be billed on the invoice monthly.  Each of these components should be contracted with each service type audited on a monthly basis to ensure accuracy.
The Data Pooling fee, as well as the Base rates and Contract rates on the Private Mobile Connection at the various levels, must be analyzed on a monthly basis against the contracted rates to ensure accuracy.  In the case of this overcharge, the Account team was diligent in getting the new contract signed, however, the project fell apart when the contract rates were set up on each wireless number.  The Account Team did not ensure that the correct contract rate was set up for each service type and on each wireless number.
