I ported my number from at&t and they tried to play that contract crap out on me. I sent them a check for my final month in advanced and they accepted that. My number transfered on the 9th and my contract ends on the 14th. my bill comes in on the 15th but it's already paid for since my bill has been the same every month, I used that as a figure to go by.
She tried to play off that contract bs to me at first but I told her that if it's paid off, there is no breach of contract since I bought out my contract when I prepaid my last month....after talking to corporate for about 5 minutes they agreed it was ok.
If you feel they are trying to play you for a fool by taking their sweet time so they can scrape more $ out of you...file a fcc complaint. They arent supposed to charge you for additional months if your request is placed within the last month of your service.
