still want subscription but no charges for time being

hi, some time ago (approx 19months) i set up a subscription for azure sql db. I didnt use it much and apparently am being charged on my credit card about $16 per month since aug-sep for a few hundred rows of data because its probably not free after a year. I probably ignored some emails about those charges and am just waking up.

I havent done anything with that data for about a year. it seems like the base unit charge is about $2.56 but honestly i dont know how that translates to $16 + per month because their graphs dont label axes and there is way too much information explaining their charge structure when all one wants to do is to reconcile the charge to what is being used.

had i known/remembered in aug-sep that charges would start accruing, I would have posted this question then. I wouldnt mind keeping my subscription (i think its called pay as you go) and diving a little more into the cloud based sql products. And while $16 per month isn't much i wouldnt mind keeping my subscription but not get charged for now for things i dont use. Otherwise i'll probably cancel my subscription.

Any thoughts?

If you still want the Azure SQL Database and you don't use it much, switch it to the Serverless Tier.

@db042190-2874 You don't need a support plan for billing issues.
Please reach to Azure support for clarification on the charges.

Best option is to create a billing support request here about this issue.

Billing support should always be free.

thx dspatrick. I think they charge for billing support, at least from the links they started taking me on. the links ask you immediately what support plan you have. are you saying these charges aren't even proper?
