What you have done with VZW is called an advance replacement. Once you return the defective unit, they will credit your CC back. Standard operating procedure for most companies dealing with replacements in this manner.

I just did the same thing with my Storm... What they do is charge you for the new device and put that charge on your bill... As soon as the defective device is returned they credit your bill back so it all evens out....

Same thing happened with me, I just sent mine back yesterday I will be interested to see how long it will take to get the credit to my account.
