Possibly.

Did you sign a 24 month contract? Did you accept discounted pricing
on a new phone?

If you supplied the phone, the sales rep f*cked up--no reason for a 2
year contract i nthat case. I'd call Cingular, tell them what
happened and see if they'll update it in the billing system.

It's possible you may have to go back to the store and have them
correct it there though, I'm not sure.
