Billing Stub Quirks

My cell phone company, Sprint, has an interesting payment stub on their bill because in the section where you fill in how much you're paying, it has enough digits to allow up to 7 digit dollar amounts. Do people really need to pay over 1 million dollar cell phone bills or do they just use that exact same form to bill other things as well?

Then my land line company, AT&T, has a strange payment stub too. They list a "due by" date then say that if it's not paid by four days after that, it's "late" and you have to pay a penalty. So if you miss the "due by" date but pay it before the "late" date, what is it?
