If you've chosen to receive a detailed bill rather than a summary bill, your bill gives you an itemised account of all your recent activity over multiple pages. It displays itemised phone calls, SMS charges and data usage for the month. Your bill charges are also itemised on your online bill.

This is what a detailed bill looks like:
