I have been having trouble with my land line phone for some time now . I called to have my lines worked on , the first guy that came out here said the problem was down town . and they would have to fix it down there . a while went by and i was still having trouble . so i called again . they said they would send some one out in 2 weeks . the next guy came out he said it was the underground wire out on peachorchard rd and he was not authorized to go under ground . so i waited longer for someone to fix it . when nothing was happening and i was still having trouble with the phone service i called again and asked if they were going to take some money off my bill because the phone service was not right still . he told me he would take 27.00 off .that was aug 8 to the 15 . it is now sept . l have tryed to get the phone fixed from before july . and still having trouble with the phone service . I think i should not be charged for service until it is fixed or turn off the phone until the company can fix this .the only other thing i can think of doing is to report it to the bbb. because im not getting nothing done like this . and to think when i call to report the problem they try to sell me more services . i dont think so if you cant get one service fixed.

On Aug 28, 2017 ATT was supposed to install my internet service, so I had my daughter to take a day off from work and stay home between the hours of 8am-8:00pm.

I spent over 20 minutes on the line holding to complain about exposed wires in my garden. I am a DirectTV customer but I did not have a service call but apparently my neighbors did. I spoke to 2 ATT techinicians that were on site.
I am on hold not for another 10 minutes and still waiting for resolution so submitting this as well.
The one told me that he wasn't the one to burry wires. It is unsafe and very unsightly for my yard to have exposed wires. I have landscapers coming this week to work in that area of my yard to clean it out.
This needs immediate attention.
I applied for the Directv / ATT Wireless special pricing in February of 2016. I was overcharged more tan $100 per month for 14 months and then they offered me $25.00 credit every month to add HBO if I had unlimited talk/text/data wireless plan. I agreed and have had to call in three times and still no $25.00 credit. They owe me over $1100 in overcharges for my Directv service and they stole over 13 hours of my time calling and fighting with them for 14 months. I truly wish each incompetent person at AT&T that has been involved in screwing up my account could feel and experience my frustration and disappointment.
Can anyone imagine 16 months of incorrect bills and calling into customer service one or two times a month for 16 months? AT&T so pathetic in their intercompartmentalizations, it results in complete stupification of every employee!
I signed up for new Internet and Direct TV services based on a advertisement sent to me home. the deal was for a 2 year contract I would recive Internet TV for $55 a month with a $20 discount on my mobile phone bill and a $100 Visa card
The day of insulation the rep told me Direct TV could not be used even thought I had this service before. The only option was universe and that would be an additional $25 per month but all of the services were the same. Today I called because I had no premium channels per the deal. I found out my monthly cost is $133 per month and after 2.5 hours with your customer service I'm told the only thing I can d is cancel service
I would never have switched had the prices be HONESTLY told to me at insulation.
After 1.4 hours on the phone a team manger named Vaughn was rude and condensing telling me I lied about the package bought. This experience has left me doubting that AT&T is a quality organization
I fully expect AT&T to honor the CONTRACT we agreed too
I did an online AT&T purchase on June 21, 2017 at 6:24 PM for an Netgear 7550 Accessory for a total of $107.75. I received this online purchased on June 24, 2017. I was not happy with this purchased and on the their return policy for a refund, it said to return it to any AT&T store. No luck. Me and my son went to three different AT&T. First stop was at AT&T in Dinuba, Ca.they said we needed to take it to a bigger store. We went to AT&T in Visalia, Ca, they said they do not take item like that and we need to take it to the post office. We took it to the AT&T in Tulare, Ca. and they told us the same thing, take it to the post office. This is June 27, 2017 we send it back through the USPS. I called AT&T on August 4, 2017 I was on the phone for over 2 hrs, they kept transferring from U-Verse to Wireless back and forth.I spoke with Anika, Austin, Natanya, Richard, Samuel, he was able to find through tracking number and return label, that they received it! I was transferred again I spoke with Jennifer, Loren and Janet. Janet said it takes 90 days for refunds. She said the last of August I should get the refund.I thought it was too long. On 8/8/2017 I did an online chat with Sofiya G. Let her know the Online purchased of Netgear Model 7550 was returned back on 6/27/2017 and wanted to know when I would get my refund! She said she would have her Supervisor give me a call. At 11:13 a.m. James her supervisor called me and said he would fix everything , not to worry, I would get my refund back in my account in 48-72 hrs. That didn't happen. August 21, 2017 I called and spoke with Edward from Refund Costumer Dept. he tells me it will take 30 to 40 days more for the refund of $107.75. I have been waiting since June for a refund. AT&T has their product, I haven't received my refund. All they are doing to me is lying. Hope you can help me! Here I'm sending my order forms, Account Activity where &107.75 was taken out and my Return slip from Visalia Post Office. Thank you, Maria Valencia
When switching to at&t from Verizon I was offered a promotional deal to cover the cost of my cancellation fee (up to $650). Then later on I was asked if I wanted at&t to buy my cell phones or keep them and sell them. We asked how much they would be willing to buy them for, AT&T offered $200 each ($400 total, they were in really good shape). We figured we would probably only get $125 each, so sounded like a good idea. We had the manager come over to confirm that the "deals" were separate; One deal to buy our phones. Second deal cover cancellation fee up to $650.
We got our final bill from Verizon, took it into the at&t store and they uploaded everything and we were told we are good to go. We would get 2 visa giftcards in about 8 weeks ($220 each to cover the cancellation). All is well with the world.
Then I get the email stating that my cards have been approved and put in the mail... $20 each. WHAT?!?! At this point I click the link attached to this email to discover that they are NOT separate deals and that you had to trade in your phones and they DO subtract it from the amount they are going to "cover" for you to switch. Not to mention all this happens after your first 30 days so you can't just cancel.
I called customer service only to be transferred 4 times, totally over 2 hours, just to be informed that they are not AT&T (they are a third party - Extra Measures) and cannot do anything and they suggested that I go to the store, but it doesn't matter because they told me wrong and at&t will not honor it.
So I go to the store, wait 30 mins just to be signed in. But I was happy to see both the girl that helped us and the same manager were working that offered us the deal. I was told when I checked in that they can text me when I’m next in line if I want to run some errands, but she would wait if it was her because they were moving fast and had 2 more employees coming in. I wait another 45 mins and don’t get either the girl or the manager. I explain to the nice new lady what all happened and that $400 is a good chunk of change and I want it. She writes everything down and says she has to talk to the Manager (super nice about everything). After 15 mins of her and Manager in the back room, they both come out and walk over to me. The Manager then starts to tell me that I somehow misunderstand and that herself and the girl that tried to help us the first time are “actually really good about explaining the deal” so there is no way she told me that. I explained again and she claimed she would never say that and there is nothing they can do. Again “she is really good at explaining it and we have to trade in our phones.” I say, again, BOTH my husband and I didn’t misunderstand you, we confirmed several times. She just shakes her head at me. At this point I am so angry I just start to cry (not ball, but I ask for a minute). I tell them I will have to talk to my husband and walk out thanking the new lady that tried to help me. I had to leave because it was either I leave now or I throw a BIG SCENE.
I am tired of being lied to. I just want what I was promised that made me switch to at&t. Sprint offered the same deal (but explained it better, because we understood the cell phones would come out of the $650), but that is why we went with at&t – we thought they were offering a better deal. That is also why we ASKED SEVERAL times are “you sure these are separate deals?” That is why we asked the MANAGER to come over to make sure we understood them correctly! So, in other words Sprint and at&t were/are offering the same deal, however at&t is doing a bait and switch (aka lying about it until you are a customer).
My question... how do I make AT&T honor the promotion I was promised when signed,because they wait after the 30 day period so I can no longer cancel without HUGE fees?
My wife and I went into your Floresville, Texas store on August 27th around 4 pm and asked one of your reps to help us understand why my Iphone 5 had a black screen. The gentleman that we were dealing with was new and did not really know what was going on with the phone. He told us he was in "training", he keep going to the back of the store and speaking with someone and coming back to speak with us. Finally a female rep came out to help him and us. She informed us that the phone needed to be replaced or fixed by another company. She explained about the "BOGO" deal and told us we needed to change our phone numbers in order to get the deal and we could not get the Iphone 7 like we wanted because of our eyesight. After we had been there for about 30 minutes or so, she informed us that their system was down anyway and we couldn't buy any products until Monday so we needed to go back to the store on Monday. We disappointedly agreed and we left with my cell phone still not working. We went back to the store on Monday, August 28th and none of the people that were there on Sunday were working so we spoke with Seth. We explained the situation to him and he stated that we could get some good deals but he would have to speak with his manager Justin Sixsmith so we needed to come back on Tuesday because the manager wasn't there but Seth assured us that he would be working the next day until 8pm. Again, we left very disappointed and upset that we were not getting anywhere with our situation. We returned to the store on Tuesday, August 29th around 6:45 or so and lo and behold Seth was not working!!!!! There was another rep there and he informed us about the "BOGO" and we told him about the situation and asked to speak with the Manager. He said the manager would be out in a bit and continued to look at the ipad for more deals. Finally, after about 15 minutes, a gentleman came out from the back room and I asked him if he was the manager and he said yes. I explained the situation and he did not care, he stated that we could get "BOGO" but we needed to add a line or take one off and get a new phone number and told the other rep where to look for the deals on the ipad and told us that he needed to leave because he was suppose to be off at 6 pm and he had personal things to do. He just left us standing there with the other rep. The rep then told us to come back in September because At&T would be offering good deals on the Iphone 8. We just left very upset and couldn't believe what was going on with your store. We have been customers for a few years and we are very, very upset and disappointed that your reps could not/would not help us get a new phone!!!! My name is Edelmiro "Eddie" Ramirez. My wife's phone number is 956-236-2207. I still can not use my phone (956-220-8799).
AT&T digital life is the worst product on the market. They came out to repair one digital door lock that had a key. The new digital door long no longer had a key. Needless to say, it did not function and lock me out of my home. I had to pay a locksmith $180 to break me into my back door, currently the only door that works. They have promised me over and over phone calls, on site visits to correct the problem, supervisor phone calls, etc. – Nothing has happened. I have been with AT&T for over a decade I spent in excess of $8700 a year with them on their wireless plans Internet and DirecTV. At the very least they should treat me with respect They do not. If they cannot treat someone who spends the kind of money that I spend with them with a modicum of respect then how are they going to spend the average AT&T user. I am demanding to be let loose of my digital life contract immediately and I will be taking my phones elsewhere in addition to my high-speed Internet and I will be dealing with DIRECTV one on one without AT&T and Bault if that is not possible I will deal with dish network. AT&T is officially Lost all my am business. We live in a capitalist society and the only thing that these big corporations understand is the loss of money. It has been three days now and I still cannot get into my front door; The last customer service person this morning had the audacity to tell me that there is a technician coming to my house today but no one has called me to see if I would even be home today to receive a technician. This treatment is out rages. They have lied to me now on four separate occasions for this one instance
I have written several letters regarding the repeatedly bad phone & internet support,and subsequent poor repair service I have been receiving from AT&T since April 2017.
I have contacted the local AT&T office several time and had over 15 technicians here in my home within the past 4/1/2 months and the issues have not been resolved.I cannot understand why no one at AT&T can correctly identify and fix what should be a simple problem.
I went to at&t to ask about switching from Verizon. the sales rep at the Quakertown pa store advised that there would be 3 gift cards for 650.00 so I wouldn't owe Verizon anything. I offered to pay the deposits on the phones at that time. However the sales rep used the credits for the deposits on the phones without my authorization. I am stuck with a 1500.00 bill from Verizon which now has me in collections .I traded in 2 Iphone7 and an IPhone 7 plus I got credit for 3 IPhone 7's. I am also going to contact better business and file a complaint . I have been to the store in Quakertown the day after I switched and several times after that with no resolution. If I knew this was going to happen I would have stayed with Verizon
I did try and contact the regional manager and they would not return my call . My supervisor at work advised she has had the same issue and is filing a complaint with bbb and she is going back to Verizon. I will also be leaving att and advising anyone I know not to switch to att. If you are trying to send away customers this is a good way to go about it. I am so sorry I ever left verizon
I moved from Georgia to SC in July. In June, I established new service with AT&T which included DIRECTV + AT&T internet bundle for $80.00 per month. This included free installation, free premium channels for 3 months and a $200.00 Visa Rewards card. After signing up online, I received Order Confirmation Number: 22-173667914113234. Later that day, I received another email from AT&T asking me to contact them because they could not complete my order. It took 5 phone calls (one lasting 1 hour and 26 minutes) to explain to the AT&T reps that I was moving and wanted to sign up for the current promotion. The representatives were so busy reading a prepared script they were not actively listening to what their customers are saying. I finally had an installation date of July 18th with the AT&T rep telling me they would honor the same promotion $80.00 per month, free installation, free premium channels for 3 months and a $200.00 Visa Rewards card.
On July 18th, my internet was set up at my new address by AT&T. Later that day the DirecTV tech came to my house to hook up cable. He advised that he could not hook up DIRECTV because there are too many trees in my backyard. I called AT&T again and was told they would hook up AT&T U-Verse on Friday, July 21st and honor the same promotion of $80.00 per month, free installation, free premium channels for 3 months and a $200.00 Visa Rewards card. My appointment was set between 11:00am - 1:00pm. The technician did not show up until 3:30 that afternoon and although he was setting up 2 televisions, he only brought 1 remote.
Two weeks later, my premium channels were cancelled with no prior notice. When I contacted AT&T I was advised I was not eligible for the premium channels at no cost for 3 months even though I had been watching them until they were disconnected. I eventually resolved that problem. A few days later I noticed that I was charged an installation charge of $35.00 and charged for cable service beginning on July 18th even though it was not hooked up until July 21st. I again had to call AT&T to resolve that problem. The AT&T rep issued a credit to my account and confirmed that I would be getting my $200.00 Visa Reward card in approximately 3 weeks.
Five weeks went by and I had not received the information for the $200.00 Visa Rewards. I contacted the AT&T Reward Center and was told they did not show any rewards for me. The rep said he could issue rewards in the amount of $150.00 and he would transfer me to AT&T Customer Service to obtain the additional $50.00 in Visa Rewards. I requested to speak to a manager and was supposedly transferred to a manager named Matthew. Matthew told me he would issue the additional $50.00 in rewards. That was 5 days ago and I still have not been issued the additional $50.00.
AT&T has poorly managed my account since the day I signed up. AT&T incorrectly bills its customers, fails to honor promotions and won’t provide any meaningful resolution to their customers.
I spent four and a half hours today calling AT&T customer service regarding my account. I had a new bundled account with Direct TV, landline phone with unlimited long distance and internet that was to take effect in December 2016 and was a 12 month agreement. I have not received the same bill two months in a row. I have called every month and been told things that I knew were not correct. Today was no exception. I was disconnected numerous times. There were a few representatives that were rude and clearly were not going to assist me. A forty plus year customer should be one that you would want to keep. Not so. When they can not tell you why your bill has not been the same for eight months in a row and are rude you no longer have my respect. Asking you to read your bill to them while they look at it on their end and say "good job" is unacceptable. I did my work by keeping records of names, dates and times. They will say anything to get you off the phone. They do not even think about some of the ridiculous things they are saying and when you call it to their attention they just stop talking or hang up on you. Looks like you would WANT to retain long standing customers. Guess AT&T does not care.
This saga starts mid-afternoon Wednesday August 16th coincidentally within 5 minutes after I had called Spectrum Time Warner to order their 100 MG Internet Service, and right before I called AT&T to cancel my internet service. An AT&T representative just happened to knock on my door, informing the residents in my area AT&T had just installed a new fiber cable. He told me I could get Direct TV and Internet service with a total savings of about $50.00 per month, and that AT&T had Internet speed available at 1000 MBPS (1 GIG). The reason I called Spectrum was they advertise 100 MBPS for $49.95 per month. I was told by the representative, I could get 1 Gig Internet speed for only $70.00 per month. My first thought was 10 times the speed with AT&T (and I’m already with AT&T) for only $20.00 more a month, that is a no-brainer, what a deal. I signed up for the Direct TV package, plus the upgrade to my Internet Service. Sounds good, but………. I was told the following Friday the 18th AT&T would be out to install the service. I took off work Friday (1) for the person to install the services requested.
When the man arrived, he told me he was only out to install the Direct TV order. I presently have 6 televisions in my home with 6 cable receiver boxes. The installer informed me with Direct TV I could only have 3 or 4 active receivers and for anything above 4 boxes I would have to activate and de-activate a box each time I wanted to use the 5th receiver. Also, he and whoever sold me the package were 3rd party vendors and in spite of the fact the person was wearing an AT&T ID card they are 3rd party vendors and will say anything to make a sale. When I called AT&T to verify what the installer had said, I was told what the installer had said was correct. Anything above 5 boxes I would have problems. I cancelled the order, and kept my original U-Verse service with 6 boxes.
When I asked what time, the installer would be out to install the Internet service I was told there was no order placed for service. I was under the impression the person I placed the order with had placed the whole order, but was later told since he is an independent contractor, and NOT an AT&T employee he does not have access to the AT&T ordering system and that I would have to start the whole process over again. At that time, I placed an upgrade to my Internet to 1000 MBPS (1 GIG) and was told an installer would be out Tuesday August 22nd between 09:00 and 11:00 am. I took another (2) day off work expecting to be able to return later that afternoon. After about 4:00 pm I called AT&T and spoke with a supervisor named Swami who issued another trouble ticket and told me he would be monitoring the job and that someone would be out that day. The installer finally arrived around 5:00 pm and stayed until after 7:30 pm. He told me his job was to install, THE FIBER ONLY, and that someone else would be out the next morning, to complete the job. Consequently, I had to take another day (3) off work Wednesday the 23rd.
Sure enough, another installer showed up around 08:30 am and he was here all-day Wednesday. One of the problems he mentioned to me was, there was something wrong with the way the order was blocked in the CO and that it reverted back to copper line speed and it would take 6 hours to correct. He called his supervisor and everyone else associated with the order and within about ½ the time the problem was corrected. The installer was here over 12 hours trying to get the service working, correctly. When he left he told me 1 was getting over 1 GIG download speed and 750 MBPS upload speed. He left and everything was working great.
Saturday August 26th, I just happened to check the internet speed, I was getting and according to www. att.com/speedtest I was only getting 38 MBPS upload speed and 51 MBPS download speed. I again called AT&T and scheduled an appointment for the next day Sunday the 27th between 08:00 am and noon. When I realized there was a conflict with the times I called back and re-scheduled for between noon and 4:00 pm. The technician showed up and within 10 minutes was gone telling me there was an outside problem and he would refer it to the correct department and someone would be back that same day. Thankfully, I didn’t have to take another day off work but, I wasted another day waiting for someone to get my internet working, all for nothing. About 6:00 I called into AT&T again and spoke with another supervisor Mel who issued another trouble ticket J 864 994 56 and told me the problem was outside my house and he would be “monitoring the job and that someone would be out that day, and that they would be working until about 10:00 pm.”
Before I left going to work Monday morning the 28th I thought I would give AT&T another chance. I called again, spoke with someone named Jason and he issued another trouble ticket J 866 391 10. He gave me the standard phrase about monitoring the problem……We agreed before I take another day (4) off work he and the technician would call me at least 30 minutes before the technician arrived. Within 15 minutes he called me saying the guy was on the way. The tech arrived about a couple of hours later. The first technician, polished the connections and said whoever was here the previous day (Sunday) did not do everything he was supposed to do and he would refer the trouble back to him. I explained this had been referred, referred, and referred again, but the service still was not working correctly. He called and got someone from the same department as the original technician who came out Sunday and together they made the following conclusions: (1) my desktop computer is working wireless, as opposed to being hard-wired, which is the optimum, (2) the network interface card in my computer is too old and cannot operate at 1 GIG speed, and (3) that there are too many programs operating on my computer, in the background. In order to solve the first problem, I would have to authorize an additional charge to “hard wire” my desktop. I authorized the charge, and when he finished hard wiring it still did not meet the minimum requirements. After he finished, my internet speed is only 138.1 MBPS download and 143.0 upload. It improved about 10 % from the download speed of 32.5 and an upload speed of 36.9, but nothing close to what I expected or what is acceptable. I’m paying for 1 GIG speed and I find it extremely hard to believe AT&T is advertising 1 GIG speed and in reality only offering less than 15% of what is promised.
When I asked the installer that question his response was I should expect 1 GIG leaving the office, but only 500 GIG, (under perfect circumstances) at the gateway, and since my computer is in such bad shape, I should replace it. AFTER I PURCHASE A TOTALLY NEW COMPUTER SYSTEM, and the absolute best I can expect is 300 GIG at my computer.
Concern – Every time I call AT&T I get an agent who is extremely apologetic, very sorry I have a problem, and they are more than willing to help. The problem is they never solve problems just refer them to someone else. Please consider teaching your foreign agents how to test problems, or bring that function back to the US, where the testers are? Results matter to me as a customer, not someone who is being condescending.
Question: How do I get what I’m paying for 1 GIG Internet Service, without having to take another day off work, or going to another vendor? I’m a retired AT&T employee who chooses to do business with AT&T, exclusively.

My bill is different every months. I called few times to AT&T but those people don't understand. It's look like they are reading from computer screen. When I requested to speak to manager the person said we have no manager or supervisor. I'm going nuts with AT&T wireless customer service. Alot of people talking in Spanish and hard to make them understand. My phone number is 732-692-7038. If my issue is not resolved then I have to cancel the service and move to another company. Someone pls give me call from management to resolve my issue.
On 8/15/17 I contacted AT&T to change my U-Verse TV package to reduce cost. Since I also have my landline, internet & cellphone services with AT&T I requested any other "deals" for these 3 additional service. That call ended with reduced costs for TV, landline & internet but not cellphone. Several days later I received in the mail a printout of the changes. All 3 (TV, Internet & landline) changes/reduced costs were incorrect. On 8/21/17 I contacted AT&T regarding these errors & at end of that phone conversation was guaranteed all errors would be corrected. On 8/28/17, 1:20a.m., when the changes to the U-Verse TV package happened, a number of channels were not included that were guaranteed to be available. This began a series of phone conversations with 3 different representatives on 8/28/17 & the error is still not corrected. The final conversation ended with the representative telling me someone will contact me in approx. 1 week regarding the additional TV channels that should have been included in the revised U-Verse TV package. It is extremely frustrating that a change to a TV package & revised costs for these 3 services can not be coordinated by AT&T in a timely manner. Each time I talked with representatives (different city, different reps, etc.) they all indicated incorrect information/data had been entered by the previous representative. Nothing like "passing the buck", so professional. Any AT&T Customer Service rep anywhere in the country should have immediate access to each customer's complete "file", including previously quoted costs, dates of service requests/changes, etc. I have recently retired from almost 40 years in the Hospitality industry. I have hundreds of contacts in various organizations, companies, groups, businesses & associations throughout the US that I will gladly share this AT& horror story with immediately.
My service was canceled after one year because AT&T said that my address does not exist! they gave my address and number to another customer. My business was left without a phone number! ATT has not resolve the issue I talked to customer service who advise me they would take care of the issue.
Nothing has been done and I just received a call from collection saying my account was sent to collections.
I do not want to call customer service since we been trying to resolve the issue for months and nothing has been done I don't know where to go from here I don't have a phone number and I have unpaid bill for equipment that AT&T supplied to me when they open my account .
account number 152406439
I have tried a dozen times to get someone to change my service to make my bundled internet and Directv affordable. Customer service keeps transferring me to another department then hanging up. This is the worst service I have ever had. I will try once more then cancel it all.
I think it's a shame that AT&T does not support its military. There are no special deals for soldiers and Airmen being deployed overseas. They want us to buy into the standard international plans. As if we were businessmen traveling overseas. It's very expensive to use your phone to call loved ones back home when you're serving your country. I'll be telling everyone I know that AT&T does not support our military.
Two different days last week I visited the at&t store at highway 152 and Flintlock Rd in Liberty, Missouri. Both days I was greeted by a woman named Sue. She was very cold the first visit and the second time, 9/27/16, she was rude and not helpful at all. I finally went around her and asked my question to a representative. He was very patient and helpful.
I went into the AT&T store to see if I could retrieve the unlock i needed and requested for over 3 weeks for my qualified and paid off galaxy S5. On July 13, 2016 is the date i went to the store. Of course i did not get the code but a sales rep talked to me and suggested getting an S6 for the wifi calling would resolve my home cell signal reception quality. This Microcell box is not the answer because i do not offer or will i pimp out my internet service for another companies benefit. and i do not even get anything. I get a compromised network that lets data to be used and exchanged for another companies benefit. I lost 20.00 from TWC because they could see another LAN connection using other sources, and ip addresses etc. thats not theirs.
My point is the sales rep said if i bought the S6 it would resolve the cell signal problem. and i would have aback phone if i lost or it got stolen. The S5. so stupid me bought the S6and on day 8 i had cell phone signal problems to the point they were important phone calls. I realized the wifi calling did not kick in. I called the AT&T phone customer service. I was told that the S6 does not have the wifi calling working yet. The only S6 is the active which i was not sold and the entire purchase was based on that fact. So here we are 2 months later and i must have spent over a solid day in these 2 months talking to everyone and i thought thing got resolved with them offering me a warranty replacement for the S6 Active. when i opened the box oit was another S6. Called the 1 800 the rep told me to go to the dsc near my apartment.
The employee at first refused to help me. then he finally after 30 minutes of talk decided to help. Then he read the notes and i showed him a copy of the chat i printed with the details and he said there was nothing he could do. So I called chatted today. I got no where. Lies, BS, a sore through, hurting fingers and again no where. now i am sending a formal complaint to the CEO and I have filed a complaint with consumer affairs and am going to contact the FCC. This is just wrong from the beginning and my time is not even factored in.
Bought the new Samsung 7 Edge at buy one get one free. They charged me full price on both phones and refuse to make things right. I have been with AT&T since 2003, but I will be finding a new carrier this weekend. If I could have given 0 stars, I would have.
I got bill 119.03, for the month of Bill Cycle Date: 08/09/16 - 09/08/16. I was upset about International Long Distance (2. Minutes Billed 16 56.32). Intentionally i did not make any out bound calls to out of the country, I would kindly request you to remove this Internationally billed amount. None of the customer agents are not understanding my situation. I am with AT&T more than six years. Please understand my situation. I am hoping you to resolve this issue, and deduct the amount and finally to providing loyal customer service and satisfaction to the end customer.
I have been trying iPhone and iPad unlocked for two weeks after paying off the balance on each device. I've called numerous times to get this issue resolved, and each time a representative promised to call me back within 24-48 hours, but I have never received a return call. My wife has been without a phone for the past two weeks. I cannot go to another phone carrier because the phone is locked, and AT&T has purported that the IPhone has not been paid off. I have a receipt date August 31, 2016 that shows both devices have been paid in full. This is really frustrating, and I want to get this resolved as soon as possible.
I moved my service and was due a $400 reward card for moving and when I didn't get it, I contact them. They told me yes I was due the 400 but I needed to speak to rewards. I speak to them and they say it was only 100 and it expired. Customer service told me I was owed nothing.
I spoke to Jessica Fox who is a collection specialist on September 12, 2016 around 5:56 pm. She was trying to compare AT&T's business to gas, which was very unprofessional. She also agreed with me about downsizing and switching to another company. I think Jessica needs more training, she should never agree with the customer on those terms. If so, there would not be an AT&T and she is not representing the company in the appropriate manner.
My neighbor was having work done because he lost service, I saw the AT&T truck in front of his house when I got home. My wife and I had a very busy Friday and Saturday and all we wanted to do is relax and watch a movie.
We turn on a movie and after a minute the screen freezes for 10 seconds and then tells us channel can't be reached try another channel. Well no channels worked, so I went to the main box and saw the broadband 1 light flashing green and red, all the other lights below were off.
So I powered it off for 10 seconds and powered back on, same thing, so I rebooted the box connected to my tv, nothing changed. I called support, they stated they can't even reach my box, so I went outside to see the tech on the ladder and doing something in the box connected to the line. I introduced myself, and told him that tech support can't even reach my box and by chance did he disconnect my wires. His exact words were no, I just bumped into your lines, I didn't disconnect them.
I called support back, went through the same line test and was told I am unreachable, I told them what I thought, and they said to ask the tech to take a look, I did and he said I just bumped them. I told him it was working fine until he wen't into the box and his reply was he would get in trouble with his union if he went in the box. I said you were just up in that box putzing around and his reply was I don't like the tone of your voice and walked away. The support person was still on the line and asked when should they send a tech out tomorrow.
The tech arrived Sunday afternoon, I explained what I saw and thought, so he took his ladder out and climbed up and took a look. He stated the wire is broke, and reconnected it, and everything worked fine. My neighbor came out saying his Uverse/Internet wasn't working right and scheduled an appointment for the next day, but the tech said seeing he was here yesterday, and you scheduled an appointment, I will take a look. After 2 hours and some replacement parts my neighbor was back up.
I am really pissed off at that tech, so I called to file a complaint, the girl took my information down and said she is transfering me to her supervisor. Well after 20 minutes she tells me her supervisor is working on another issue and when she gets done she will call me. Well its been 36 hours later and no call. I just called back, and was told our systems are down, call back in 2-3 hours, well just goes to show how from the top down AT&T could care less about their customers.
I have had intermittent internet service (Uverse) for 3 weeks now. I spent a considerable amount of time on the phone yesterday with a AT&T rep trying to resolve the issue. My internet was completely out at the time. After all the tests she told me she could,t resolve the issue. She set me up for a service call today from 1:00 to 4:00PM. I waited here during that time. No one came & no one called. After 4:00 pm I called only to find out due to "overbooking" they couldn't make it. I am 72 years old & remember when At&T was a professional company that could be depended on to follow through on commitments. What has happened to this company?
I am having a hard time getting my u verse account transferred, however AT&T has no problem auto drafting the amount out of my checking account on a monthly basis. I have been given the run around for about 2 weeks now. Every time they give a scheduled date to have it transferred they never show up. When I call about the situation they tell me they will be out on the next day, and they still haven't showed up yet. I took off from work on Tuesday and they never showed. I had some stay at my house on yesterday and they never showed up.
I called them on yesterday and they assured me that the tech was still coming, but guess what no one never showed up. The lady I spoke with on yesterday evening would not let me talk to her supervisor. She indicated that she would call me back in thirty minutes and guess what I never heard back from her. I called back to day and they told me that my appointment was scheduled for tomorrow. Is this a joke or something? Will I be able to get my service transferred or will I have to discontinue my services. If no one shows up on today or tomorrow I will take my services elsewhere where I will be greatly appreciated.
First I want to say that AT&T is the worst company I have ever had to deal with in my whole life when it comes to customer care. I have been lied to continuously for 6 months now and with no resolution thus far. I would think that with a corporation as big as AT&T, you would have better customer care and make sure there are resolutions that do not keep lingering for over 6 months. I have an existing account with you (acct. #152144336 Jordan Douglass) as of now. I will talk about that issue at the end though.
The issue I want to complain about first is about account # 119331175 Jordan Douglass. This account is closed and was one that we had back at an older place we lived at in 2012. When we moved to a new resident we had to get another internet provider since you did not service that area at the time. When we left your company we were told that there was no need to return equipment since it was outdated anyway, so we boxed it up and put it in the closet during moving. I left it there and when we moved to the new place this year I found it and did not throw it away.
We moved from that area as of April 2016 and into the AT&T service area and got new service with you. So here is the problem.....When we moved here in April 2016 I called ATT&T and asked about service here for internet, cable and phone (landline) I was told by your agent that in order to get service here I would have to pay for equipment that was not returned from old account and also pay the $481.00 equipment fee until they receive it and once received they would reimburse/refund me my $481.00 back within 30 days after receipt of equipment.
I made sure I asked the AT&T agent if I would get my money back in that time frame with no issues and they assured me I would. That was a lie. I just want to say that the only reason I never returned the equipment in the first place back in 2012 is because we were told there was no need since it was outdated equipment. That was also a lie. I returned the equipment April 26,2016 and your company received it April 28,2016. I waited a month before I called to inquire about my refund on that equipment I was promised by AT&T's people. They told me that it would be another 30 days. I waited and did not receive anything. I called again and was told by an agent that it takes 90 days to get a refund, not 30 days.
So since it was past 60 already I would only have to wait another 30 days. The agent also said that if I didn't want to wait that long I would be able to get that $481.00 credit to my new account. I asked if that was the ONLY option at the time and she said "No, you can wait 30 days and get a check or get a credit right now to new account" I opted to wait 30 more days. This was a lie. I called again and spoke with an agent who was a supervisor. We discussed the whole situation and at the end of the conversation he assured me that I would be contacted with in5-7 business days by someone after they listen to the calls where the agents made those promises and lied to me. He said that IF they see that the agents lied, I would be getting a credit in the amount of $481 to my new account or a refund.
That was over a month ago. I did not get a call. I have called several times and I get the same old story that someone will be returning my call that day and no one does. I have to repeat this over and over and over every time I call and then again when I am transferred. I am s tired of repeating myself. I just want your company to do what they Promise and just give me the money I am owed. You got your equipment, Now I just want my money and or credit so I can be done with this and move on. I do not want to mess with this further, but if there is no resolution I will find a way to reach out to someone else and resolve this matter.
The other issue is with the New service. Where I live the cables/wires/lines for our internet and phone service is on the ground and every month we have to contact you to send out service men to repair them. There are power poles out here and our community is wondering why you do not put them on the poles. I work from home and so does my neighbor and we need our internet and phone service in order to do our jobs. We can't work if there is no service. I have had to miss a whole day of work due to the neglect of fixing this problem. I will be very unhappy if I lose my job over this continuance of outage due to your company's lack of taking care of the problem.
Again, as of Now, I am a customer. All I am asking is to resolve these issues. Your company is not supposed to be some shabby fly by night company, but as of now it feels like it is. I would like to think that you take pride in your company and care about the customers that support you. If it was not for the customers, you would not be a company, am I right? So with that being said, I would like to think that you would attend to this matter so that we can move forward without further ado.
You do not need to write me and tell me that I am not getting a refund or credit because it was returned way after the allotted time, because that has already been said and I do understand that now. But I also understand that your agents know this policy as well and should not be making promises you can't stand by. I would not have bothered returning outdated equipment if I was told that I was going to have to pay for it anyway. Do you understand where I am coming from on that? It just sounds like your company lied to me and told me that just to get money out of me on April 2016. That is just bad business ethics.
I called At&t customer service by phone with a billing inquiry. Although the agent was polite and friendly, she told me she could not help me because she can only handle wireless accounts so she transferred me to another department... Then this new agent told me she can't help me either because she can only handle business accounts so I was upset at this point due to loss of time and effort. So she transferred me again to an automated phone menu and I still had to wait again on hold to speak with someone in the U-verse department.
Then when I finally got to talk to this agent, she refused to answer any of my questions because she said she could not verify my "passcode" but I have not requested any security protection to my account. This made me angry because she not not answer any of my questions. All I wanted to know is why my bank statement does not show that my check went through on September 01, 2016. She would not even answer that simple question. She then said she would call me back but nobody ever called me back and the problem has been left unresolved. I don't want to go through this again and am thinking about switching my internet and phone service to a different carrier.
I'm requesting that AT&T merge all departments so that they can handle any account instead of the current system where there are several specialized departments that can only handle a specific type of account. Please remove the security passcode and security question protection from my account because I cannot remember them and have never needed or requested password protection for my U-verse account. If my bill payment is late then please waive any late charges because I sent the checks in advance and did everything I could to try to resolve the issue responsibly but AT&T customer service was unwilling and or unable to handle my request by phone.
Live chat would not open and I could find no other email support other than this one.
I wish I could give AT&T a ZERO rating. No, a negative zero rating. This is a popular company only because it's a monopoly and a hated one at that! Back in the 80s and part of the 90s they were pretty good because they'd inherited many of the former Bell employees who were among the best of the best as far as excellent customer service goes (Pacific Bell, Southern bell, etc. The services this company offers is now very crappy, they don't care about their customers and the service is terrible, especially their U-Verse Internet and telephone services, and VERY expensive, too.
Most times the service provided is not even up to par, but we put up with it because we want to get onto the internet. The Internet is slow to response no matter how many Mbps' the customer is paying for in order to try to use the internet. These problems, of course are only going to get worse, especially after Obozo hands the internet over to the ungodly UN for them to begin censoring what we will be able to do with internet after they take it over. In the meantime, a pox on your houses and on your headquarters, AT&T, you nasty, no-good, evil hard-to-do-business.
I received a notice about our business account - service contract expiring soon and to call discuss options. I called the 800 number for AT&T specified twice. Each time I was on hold for over an hour. There was no way to get to a live person, no option to have your call returned and not lose your place in line. I tried in the morning, noon, and late afternoon. On hold for 3 hours that one day. Worst customer service ever. If you want to change my contract, give me a way to get a hold of you and not wait for 3 hours.
I joined AT&T last April based on a promotion for the iPhone, buy one get one free promotion. Based on this I opened 4 lines. The BOGO promotion was supposed to go into effect after 45 days. It never happened. I have made over 12-15 calls to ATT since May/June trying to get this resolved. I was told it takes 2-3 months for the BOGO to go into effect. Again, not what I was told when I joined. After 3 months still no BOGO. I have called, I have spoken to multiple supervisors, I have had multiple tickets opened, all with no resolution.
I am being told today that a ticket that was opened on 8/22 as urgent is still not resolved. I am also being told today 9/7/16, that it clearly indicates that the BOGO should have gone into effect for me, but it was put in incorrectly?? After 3-4 months of me paying over $300/month, this can't be resolved? I am also writing a complaint letter to corporate headquarters with a more formal complaint, including names of the repa sand supervisors I have spoken with. I have had cell phones for 20 years and this is the worst customer service I have ever experienced. I would never recommend ATT to anyone.
I have been active duty in the military for two years now and began my attempts for my military discount in May of 2015. It is currently September 2016 and I still have not received this discount, going on well over a year. I've gone in store a handful of times to resolve the problem and each time my information is resubmitted and I'm told that it should take a couple of months for the discount to take effect, but to no avail. I've shown my CAC card multiple times for the purpose of sending a confirmation email to my government email account and in none of those instances did I actually receive the email.
I have also brought my LES into the store which I watched the representatives scan in, but again, to no avail, I was told that there is still no record of my discount in the system. At this point I'm willing to drop AT&T as my service provider as the problem has been recurring for the past year. How can you possibly advertise a military discount it you are unwilling to provide it?
I called on August 24th because my U-Verse cable was receiving some pixelated images. A technician was sent to my property and determined it was a wiring issue. He contacted a second technician and left. The second technician arrived and did some work outside with the wires, he determined we would experience a service outage of a couple of hours up to three days while the issue was resolved. I called on August 25th to check the status of the repair. I was then told that it had been escalated to a contractor since dig work was required to repair the wires and that the project had an estimated completion date of August 31st. Since I work from home, I attempted to see if AT&T could provide me with a mobile hotspot while my internet service was down.
They could not do this for me but adjusted my account an additional $50--they claimed this was for the cost of the device and the service. They advised I go to a local AT&T store to get this hotspot and add it on the account. When I arrived at the store I was informed the device itself was $50 and the service was an additional $50. I was so unhappy with this blatant lie from the customer service rep I had spoken to that I went to T-Mobile and walked out with a hotspot and 6 GBs of data for $28. Throughout the proceeding days, I kept contacting AT&T to inform them that I had not seen any dig work being done around my property or neighborhood. They insisted that I be patient. On August 31st, I called twice --once in the morning and once in the evening.
The morning of the 31st I was told that there was a window from 8AM to 8PM for the work to be completed. When I called in the evening, I was told that the work had not yet been completed--or even started for that matter--and that I would be contacted the next day. I was not contacted on the 1st and I called myself to figure out what was happening. Now the project had an estimated completion date of September 7th. I attempted to call billing and see if my account could be adjusted and the "account expert" that I spoke to was horrendously rude.
First, she insisted that I had an overdue balance of $50 and this was the reason my services had been suspended. When I explained the situation to her and told her how unhappy I was and that I was considering switching all of my services (cable, internet, 3 mobile phone lines and home security) she told me--and I quote--"I highly doubt you have any type of home security, much less AT&T home security".
When I asked to speak to her supervisor, she informed me she would be transferring me and promptly hung up. Later that day I saw an AT&T technician outside of my property. He informed me he was checking the wires (despite already knowing it was a wiring issue). He told me that whenever the contractors get there, it would probably take three working days to repair the cables. I called technical support who told me the contractor would contact me the following morning between 8 AM and 12 PM to keep me updated.
On September 2, having not received a call from the contractor, I contacted AT&T again. This time I was told that there is a ticket but no one has been assigned to the ticket. AT&T has no information regarding when this work will be done and I have been without service (cable and internet) for over 9 days now. If the technician was correct and it takes three working days to do the dig work for the cables, the earliest I can expect my services returned is September 6th. And I highly doubt this work will even be done then since no one has been assigned. I have had an awful experience and immensely regret switching to AT&T. I wish I could give zero stars and go back in time before I ever decided to switch to AT&T U-Verse.
AT&T Wireless customer service failed to provide at best, minimal Network Connection for the very basic of wireless phone service. Starting the VERY first evening (after 9pm) spending from 3pm - after 9pm at the AT&T store activating our NEW service with AT&T, we began to see that we had if we were lucky, 1 bar of Network signal. I contacted AT&T Tech support, maybe around 10pm or a bit later to troubleshoot what could possibly be causing this.
I spent well over 2 hours performing the steps the Tech directed me to do, at one point she even asked permission, which I gave to access my phone remotely so as to see if there was an issue either with an app or settings, she did at that time direct me to change settings for the Mobile Network Type, the Roaming, the MIN and I think the PRL version settings.
This resolved nothing, my phone still registered barely 1-2 bars. I was on the phone with her until well after 1am. The very next day…the same issues. This was experienced on my husband’s AT&T Galaxy S7, my daughter’s Galaxy Note 4 and my Galaxy Note 4 (these were ported over to AT&T) from Verizon Network. This problem was relentless, it existed not just in our home, but outdoors, in our backyard/front yard, in our vehicle traveling throughout the city of Temple, TX, just up the block and ultimately at the foot of the building where the AT&T tower in our area is located just off of 1st St.
Not only were we plagued by the lack of 3G LTE and 4G LTE Network signal, but incoming and outgoing calls were so poor, it was as if we were using two way radios, completely choppy to the point that neither person could understand what the other was saying. During several poorly connected calls to your Tech Support personnel, conversations suffered being dropped causing either myself of them. If they made note of my number, to call back.
At one point, I had to contact my bank regarding my Debit Card being compromised requiring my card being closed and contacting them to have a new one issued. I found that trying to enter the numbers requested to reach a representative through an electronic call direction was absolutely futile. It kept saying, it could not understand my number entry on the keypad. This also happened even “speaking” the information. After 3 tries I was locked out and had to call their fraud division directly to unlock it.
Yet another incident happened while at the Walmart store located on West Adams. I had to call my daughter to see if she had prescriptions to pick up, I received a message that stated “your call cannot be connected” another attempt just rang and rang, yet another attempt went immediately to Voicemail or went immediately to Voicemail without ringing.
I have been with AT&T since I was first allowed to have a cell phone in high school in 2001. I got my own line in 2008. My aunt even retired from Pacific Bell before it became AT&T. I have never had anything negative to say about AT&T until my experience the other day. I’ve loved AT&T so much my household has almost every single possible product AT&T owns or is partnered with ranging from U-verse to internet to DirecTV. Anything you can think of my family has owned it at one point in time.
My issue and situation started on Saturday August 20th, 2016 with a suspension notice notifying me that I need to pay $283.06 by Tuesday August 23rd, 2016 or my lines would be suspended. When I received this letter, I was shocked because having a cell phone is so crucial to my business as a realtor and a small business owner. I immediately called customer service 5 minutes later and spent 25 minutes on the phone with a customer service representative by the name of Brittany. Brittany was very helpful and we went through all of my bill payments for the last 6 months. She assured me on Saturday that my service would not be suspended because there was no notification in her system about that. My phone bill is due on the 2nd of every month. I know that if I can not use my cell phone I can not make money to pay my other bills.
After speaking to Brittany, I was assured that everything is fine. I woke up Wednesday morning at about 7am PST to get ready for my 8am training to prepare for my travel trip next week out of the state. As soon as I was about to dial in, I was shocked to find out that my service had been suspended. I immediately called in to speak with a customer service representative who was very nice and I mentioned to her my situation. I had mentioned to her how impossible it is for me to have a past due balance on a bill where the due date hasn’t even came up yet. She told me that there was nothing she could do and I would be responsible for the $283.06. She then did mention that I would not have to pay a bill until October if I paid the $283.06 which clearly didn’t make any sense to me. She then apologized and said sorry while also wishing me luck.
I then hung up and called back a hour later. After being on hold for about 30 minutes the second time, I hung up. At this point, it was already 10am and I had to get ready for a meeting at 11. After I got out of my meeting, I called from my office phone to clear up this issue. The customer service representative I spoke when I first got through went through my last 4 months of bills and payments and was still saying that I would be responsible for the balance. I mentioned to her that why am I suspended for being current. I stressed how many business appointments I’ve missed and travel arrangements. I also have 2 members in emergency surgery that I needed to get updates on. She then transferred me over to a supervisor named Camille who was helping me.
I had been on the phone with the first customer service representatives for over 30 minutes before I was transferred to the supervisor. The supervisor heard of my issue and then went to do her due diligence and saw that my file was current and sent the request over to reinstate my service. By this time it was already 2:30 and lost the majority of my day. I work a lot with the east coast and central time zones so the vast majority of my day was shot. I asked Camille to speak with her supervisor to let her know about how great of a job she did helping me with my issue. I spoke to her floor supervisor and stressed how much of a hassle this has been because I have lost so much of my day for an issue that was not my fault.
I was trying to have the supervisor understand the importance of my issue and how I felt it should be fixed. All the supervisor did was just rush to get me off and transfer me back to Camille. After she transferred me back we just hung up. I have never had such an issue with any of my AT&T products ever in my 15 years of usage. I feel it shouldn’t have taken 6 hours to rectify this issue and I feel I should be definitely discounted or compensated for this . I called today to formally file my complaint and they informed me that my phone bill went up $77 and after reviewing the account they're not going to do anything about it and the account charges is valid. They also mentioned they would suspend service if the past due and the increase isn't paid.
My husband bought the pelican water softener no salt filter system. It was the natural soft water softener. From day one, our glasses, silverware, pots and pans have white residue deposited on them. The glasses have turned from beautiful crystal clear clean glasses to completely white and you can not see through the white haze nor do you want to use them. For the price he paid for this ($1300) he should have kept the water softener that he added salt to. How do you get rid of the white deposits using the pelican water softener no salt filter system?
Went to AT&T store. I wanted to combine phone accounts between my husband and myself. Bought a new phone $1,000, plus ordered Direct TV and obtained a security system. I was told combining the phones with Direct TV would save me money.
They told me the plan would be for 2 years which would include NFL package for 2 years. I was notified in mail NFL package would be for 1 year. And the direct TV with all the hidden cost will cost me more than I was paying for cable. was not told they had to run big wires across house nor a big dish on top of house. drilling in house for security was a mess. left dust from drilling everywhere. Didn't tell you system issues.
I went to ATT over 2 weeks ago my account still is not right on the billing side however, it is closer after they told me I would still have to pay for 2 separate accounts for 2 months and I had a melt down. so I was mislead in multiple directions and after being a customer for many years I was greatly disappointed. Now I know for sure when this contract is up I will switch my plans to another company, bc I don't like being mislead.
I am writing this formal complaint, because we have been lied to for the last time by one of AT&T's “professional” customer service representatives. Let me start out by saying, we have been loyal AT&T customers for many years, more than I can count and when we went into an AT&T store around June of 2015 to upgrade our phones and were talked into switching to Uverse from our current Comcast cable is when this all started. The representative in the store went through his whole spiel about the Uverse package and how it would save us money.
We liked that idea and had had some issue with Comcast in the past, but our only concern was that we had already paid for the MLP Xtra Inning’s package through Comcast and it was only 1/3 of the way through the baseball season at that point so we wanted to make sure we would still be able to get the MLB Xtra Inning Package with AT&T Uverse. The rep at the store said “absolutely” you will and the Gift Card you will receive will make up for the money you lost with already purchasing it with Comcast. It was 189.00 for the package and if I remember correctly the Gift Card was for 200.
So we agreed to switch and were told that after they install your service, you can call to order the MLP Xtra Innings Package. Well, AT&T Uverse doesn’t carry that package we found out when we called to order about 2 weeks later. We had already canceled Comcast, turned in all of our equipment, lost our money we had paid for the package with Comcast and your service tech ripped out all of the Comcast lines to our TV’s. We have 5 TV’s with cable boxes. The only thing we got after we called to complain was, we are sorry you were misinformed, this happens a lot when customers purchase services in the stores.
2 months ago I called to talk to someone about getting another Promo, because our year was up and our bill would go up over 100.00 a month. I either wanted to dropped some services/channels or get another promo so our bill would be about the same. Comcast did that for us every time our year or 2 year agreement was up without hesitation. I was told at that time, that they couldn’t offer a new promo, but would continue the same one we had for 6 months and to call back in December.
Last month I received our bill and they did not extend the promo, our promo was over and our bill was way more than expected. So of course I call to find out, tell them I need to drop some services and ask why I was told the promo would be extended for 6 months. The rep saw the comments on my account and apologized, he wasn’t sure why it wasn’t applied, but told me he was able to adjust the bill and told me how much to send for payment to make the Uverse account current.
I don’t remember the exact amount, but I think I paid 196.00 for that month. At that time he said if you combine your Mobile bill and Uverse bill it will save you 30.00 a month, so I agreed to do that. He also came back on the phone and said “I have found another savings for you, if you change your mobile plan to unlimited data and it will save you another 30.00 a month”. To that I asked, that’s funny last year you had us change from unlimited to our current plan to save money. He said it’s a promo that we are offering at the moment. I said my only concern is that with the unlimited we can’t use our phones as ‘Hotspots” and that is the main reason we went from the unlimited last year to our current plan.
He told me that we still have the ability to use the hotspot on the phone. Well, that is not the case, because the first time we went to use it, it was not available. We called to complain and of course were told, we are sorry you were misinformed. So we opted to switch back to a plan that allows us to use our hotspot. He also told me that AT&T was “giving” me a tablet and I would not incur any costs associated with this. I asked him what is the catch? He said nothing, it was a gift and it would not cost me anything per month. It would just be added to our data plan. I got an email saying this would not ship until I accepted the terms and conditions, which I NEVER DID. It showed up a few days later, I opened it, turned it on and played with it for a few minutes and it has sat on a shelf since.
Yesterday I opened a bill for $588.62, you have to understand this was shocking to say the least, it said I had a past due amount of $233.22, which I now understand is because we combined our bills and not only am I paying for last month mobile service, I have to pay ahead for next month’s mobile service. Which was never explained to me, but I understand. This needs to be explained to customers, they are basically paying for 2 months on the first bill, and this is tough for most people who are on a budget. The upsetting part about this bill is I am being charged a monthly fee for this “tablet” and the phone number associated with it. I was never told it had a phone number, I don’t want nor do I need another phone number.
I was also told yesterday when I called that there is nothing they can do (Theresa from the WV office) because I accepted the terms and conditions on 8/4/16, which I did not, I specifically refused to do it until I saw the first bill and was convinced that everything I was being told was the truth. There was never any mention of this tablet being on a “2 year contract” when I was “given” it. Makes sense, because I would have questioned a contract, when I was told it would cost me nothing per month. I did not accept the conditions, and neither did anyone else in my household. I would like to turn this tablet into a store and have this taken off our account.
I can understand being “misinformed” maybe once by your customer service reps, but this has been multiple times over a 14 month period. I have spent hours on the phone trying to get these issues resolved and now I have to somehow come up with 588.62 when I usually pay about 390.00 a month for our services.
I have also requested a call back from a supervisor and the representative that “GAVE” me the tablet and that has not happened yet. I know you are a multibillion dollar company that I hope takes pride in your honest employees. Well either we are extremely unlucky that we got 3 of your “dishonest employees” or you have some serious customer service issue. When I call it says that the conversation is recorded, I would like someone to listen to that conversation from last month with the employee that changed us to unlimited date and assured us that we would be able to use our hotspot and about giving me the tablet that “would cost me nothing per month”. See how dishonest he was, “just to get a sale”.
Looking for a resolution in a timely manner. I am sending this complaint into the corporate offices today.
I have been a customer for 16 years, and I am not a person who complain. On August 20,2016 .AT&T debited 231.19, from my checking account without my authorization. Not only was this unethical, but, it is against the law to go into somebody bank account without their consent. August 24, I talked to AT&T customer service representatives (James) he was no help, other than telling me there was nothing he could do.
I asked to speak to his supervisor, he told me his supervisor wasn't available, and she would tell me the only thing I could do was go to my bank and have them to do a reverse payment. This is the second incident I have had with you all this year. On February 11, I called to have my service bundled, the representative told me it would be at least 1billing cycle before I can see my statement combined and lowered. It was 4 months later(June) before they bundled my statement and I had to call them to see why it wasn't done.
The representative I spoke with said that it was supposed to be done in February. When I asked why wasn't it done, again they don't know. I asked what could they do to take something off my bill, she said we can only take off $25.00 . My combined service is supposed to be less, but, I realized it is actually 10 to 15 dollars higher than not being bundled. I know I am not the only customer that has a complaint against AT&T. It is time that AT&T start taking their customers serious. Like, I said, I am not a person that complain, but, this incident that happened on August 20, going into my bank account without my authorization and doing nothing to rectify the situation.
I look forward to hearing from someone so AT&T and I can come to some understanding. If not, I will forward this to the (BBB) Better Business Bureau.
We have AT&T u-verse, Internet and direct TV. When this months' bill was received it is almost $50 more than last month's. When establishing the account, we were told the bill would be the same for 2 years. When calling customer service, I was told there was a change in the billing date, and that was the reason for the increase. My complaint is that we are senior citizens living on a fixed income. A sudden $50 increase in a monthly payment impacts us. We do it have extra money. Why were we not previously informed? I was told in my conversation with customer service that we could get a discount for being AARP members and a discount for my husband being a veteran. You web sites appear to have discounts for cell phone users only. Please advise how to get these discounts.
Once again, a tropical event with heavy rainfall and flooding (hurricane Katrina ring a bell?) and no cell phone service for 3 days! AT&T, one of the biggest companies in the world, cannot grasp having their 'switching station' in a place or location that can't be flooded to prevent this from occurring again. They must be a little cash strapped and lacking money for capital expenditures. Good thing I'm paying for the land line also. Can't wait to switch to Verizon where I can travel the country and get reliable service.
I love ATT but I will never get the passport plan again as only the texting portion was really working I guess because we were home using WIFI. The data plan, I give mixed reviews. The passport locations were never near us especially in Paris and had to actually be in front of the café for it to connect and once it did it was very weak. I wasn’t able to constantly surfing the net or sending text/e-mails with photos, couldn’t post pics online so I can remember where all the photos were taken or save space on my device. It worked at home mostly then call 611 for assistance with but still had to constantly enter the city in order to locate a hotspot.
During an emergency used the phone a few times to call my sister and even had to refill my RAZA account to make calls to the us and Africa because the hotspot wasn’t working so couldn’t use WhatsApp while away from home; but I still got billed $200 for roaming which I think doesn’t make any sense at all. I have record of when and how I made my long distance calls and tried to explain that to agent I was talking to few weeks ago but we got disconnected and I was hopefully for 4 minutes that he would call me back so I don’t have to explain myself to another agent.
Room for improvement, for better customer service if a call drops while agent is research an issue the best practice will probably be to customer the client back since as I customer I don't have the ability to contact that agent directly or were told they cannot locate the agent :( That didn’t happen and you can already imagine that my heart was broken and I was tired. Lesson learn next year I won’t use passport and hopefully I won’t be with ATT anymore and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who likes to surf online for every single thing.
My advice to everyone who uses att passport plans keep in mind because if you are the type that likes to talk and text on the go and not "wait till you are at a cafe that has Wi-Fi or back at the home where there's Wi-Fi," then these free apps/services might not be as helpful and you're better off getting a mobile that is unlocked and get a SIM card once in Europe. An example might be, you and your travel group/companion are separated and need to communicate each other's whereabouts and maybe you need to do so rather quickly, rather than find a wifi hotspot. This is very sad and not worth it.
My account number is: When we first got the U-verse a month ago, on July 9th, David, Customer Service Representatives, told us you we're not going to charge us the installation fee, order 2237569906A. But we received the bill from you charging us the installation fee, and on July 29th, Hernando, from customer service (Medellin, COL Center) told us that Bryan, his supervisor, would review the tape from the sale to confirm whether there were or there were not installation fees, and they will have an answer on the next 5 business days.
We called them on August 5th and Christian, Cus. Ser. Rep., told us that Bryan, also his supervisor, would call us in 3 business days. And he would drop the installation fee from the statement. Until now, nobody has called us, and the bill remains the same, including the installation fees. And it appears on my account as past due, when your representatives told me this wouldn't affect my credit report, but it is affecting it.
Nobody is taking care about this nor they seem to care on helping us, and we haven't received any answers. We feel frustrated and disappointed with your U-verse service. My family and I regret to finally accept U-verse service.
The technical support number takes me to someone that is obviously reading a computer. She speaks very poor English, keeps repeating same question (very frustrating, and even if I ask a technical question she continues to read off of something and doesn't answer the question. Its feels like I'm connected to a person which is located in an efficiency in Hialeah. Its always the same person. I dare anyone at ATT to contact her and go through what I went through.
You'll want to beat yourself and that's the honest truth. When did you guys start doing this? In addition, because I was frustrated on having to be charged $199 to get a tech out to my house and replied no thanks and I will replace cable myself. Cable is not worth $199 and I hung up. My system was completely deactivated for several hours. I sure hope they can't do that but, its funny when my husband called again and made an appt. the system came back up.
My phone has been out of service for 24 hours. I have tried to report the problem using your "extremely frustrating" automated systems. I have tried to talk to a person no less than 10 times today. None were successful. I was cut off, put on hold, told that your center is closed and now you are calling my other line(704-375-5300) every hour or so and hanging up. This is your automated system trying to determine if I still have a problem. I have tried numerous times to speak to a person and that evidently is not possible.
Several weeks ago you also unplugged my line while installing someone else 's line. It took several days to resolve. I have asked a supervisor to call at least 4 times and no one has called yet..Your customer service is the worst I have experience in some time and I have approximately 20 mailings on my desk asking me to sign up for additional services. I would appreciate someone from AT&T who cares to call me to resolve the issues....I have given up for the day.
This survey is forcing me to give a one-star review however my review for AT&T and the service I have received over the last 4 hours is a -25. Chantal at the Galveston location has the worst people skills and customer service skills of anyone I've ever met in my life. My husband and I are on vacation and my phone quit working and rather than assist me I was transferred to every department within AT&T and it's warranty department as well as hung up on several times. I have been a loyal AT&T customer for several years I have also been a customer at my business but after the service that I received today I will be canceling every account that I have with AT&T.
It's no wonder that you have a 1.93 rating because after the customer service that I received today, you should be out of business. Train your staff AT&T, teach them how to learn conflict resolution, teach them how to treat your customers but most of all teach them how to fix the problem in the first place.
How do I remove the 1 star? No stars or negative stars would be accurate. I live in a rural area. I had a landline with ATT for 35 years. Switched to ATT cell phones about 2.5 years ago because the ATT cell service in this area was great. Well approximately 4-6 months ago something changed. Cell service became awful. Internet sketchy. I have called Customer Service probably 20 times since February. Yes I have sat patiently on the phone with them for 1.5 -2 hours while they trouble shoot my phone, take remote access of my phone, put me on hold, consult with a supervisor, etc,etc,etc. Bought a new phone. Same problems. They suggested replacing or warranty out brand new phone. Fine.
Same problems. Sent back warranty phone and kept my NEW phone. Problems continue. Consulted with ATT store locally owned by a very good communications company. They tell me they can see a problem with the tower nearest me when they pull up their map. During my calls to ATT customer service they see nothing wrong. 2 tickets have been opened on tower. Backtrack...out of all my calls 1 rep did say she saw something wrong with tower signal leading to the 2nd ticket being opened Friday and someone would call me back in 48 hrs. Got a text this morning requesting that I call ATT at blah blah number to discuss my technical issues. I called. Basically I was told there is no problem with tower.
Tower is operating as designed. Well...there was no problem with ATT cell service until a few months ago. It was great! But SOMETHING has changed! I noticed it in February. Calls dropped but not just dropped. The phones will freeze. You can't end the call. You have to turn phone off. Internet on phones freeze. You have to turn phone off. Phone will not ring but you have a notification you have a voicemail. Not getting incoming texts. Outgoing texts aren't received. The problems are not being experienced by just me. It's a rural area. I have several family members here. I know lots of my neighbors. It's a widespread problem. We are all having the same problems.
Unfortunately like myself several people have bought new phones only to find out there was nothing wrong with our 2yr old phones. It's so ridiculous that the "Mark the Spot" ATT APP won't even connect or report until we leave this area. Then when it reports it reports some other tower where you have traveled to. It's maddening I guess because service here WAS so good. Something has changed. ATT refuses to admit anything has changed and insists there is no problem with the tower. Maybe if ATT sent a human being out to the tower someone could figure this problem out. Or maybe ATT spent all their funds acquiring DirecTV that they now can not maintain their equipment. I know ATT considers my account a drop in the bucket. But I will not call ATT again. I will spend my time researching other carriers with hopes someone else has cell coverage in my area.
Was it fraud? Was it a bate and switch? I am not sure but, after being on the phone for over 3 hours yesterday, I felt like I had been in a battle and I lost big time. This is a long story, but I will keep it on the short side. I have been a customer of ATT since 2011. I moved to a new build home in November of 2015. In calling ATT to transfer my service, the residential department could not find my address and could not get me service. I called back and asked for the ATT business department (these 2 departments do not speak to one another).
They did find me and set up a business account with a special offer of $40/month with an installation fee of $99, which would be refunded to me at the end of the 6 months promotion, which I found out later, that I had to request it by a deadline, which I was not aware of. (they kept sending my mail to another address) I had to fight to get the refund, but finally got that back. At the end of the 6 months, I called ATT on 4/27/16 to be transferred to a residential account with a new offer of $30/month for 2 years. I received 2 offers in the mail for the same $30/month offer. One had a deadline of 5/13/16 and the other 5/25/16. I called on the offer with the 5/13/16 deadline on 4/27/16 and all was set with the transfer of my service from business to residential.
I new that I had a credit and at $30/month, I would not have a bill for a couple of months. I happened to check my ATT account on 6/23/2016 to see how much credit I had left and to my delight, my bill is not $30, no, it's $60.00/month and had a $12.00 amount due. I should have had a credit left of my account. After speaking with 4 representatives and being transferred multiple times, I then get a prompt that my wait time is 1 hour. ONE HOUR......I did receive a call back which was a little over one hour later. I was told at that time, they were not sure why I have a $60 bill and would see what she could do. I was told that the $30 promotion was CANCELLED, she could not tell me why, she saw that I did call, but no notes on why it was cancelled. I now have a bill of $45/month instead of $30. My credit was no longer there and due to the error I had to pay $12.00 until this gets resolved so I don't have a past due bill.
You can't offer a consumer one thing and switch it to something else w/o the consumers knowledge. This is so wrong on so many levels. Oh and I forgot, I was told that this was the ONLY thing they could offer me. After an exhausting day of being on hold, going from person to person and told that was the best she could do, I was told I should have gotten a confirmation number. So I guess this is my fault. Later that evening I am enjoying my TV show and I see an ATT commercial for the $30/month offer for 2 years.
I have an e-mail address only, I changed my phone service when I moved. I cannot access my e-mail , telling me my id an password do not match. only password I ever had. I was told I had to close this e-mail before I could open another. I have no e-mail I'm screwed att. Thank you.
I had a bundle of TV and internet (U-verse) with TV service contract term being until June 10 2016 and Internet service term being until February 28th 2017.My TV service was expiring on June 10th and I decided not to prolong the contract and cancel TV service, therefore I called ATT and asked them to remove TV on the last day of the contract, they did it and said I would have my internet rate increase since I didn't have a bundle anymore, which was fine for me. I asked what the increase would be and what discounts they can give.
The manager responded with 2 options: 1) I keep my existing term of internet contract until February 2017 and they give me 10$/month discount and 2) I sign for the new term from June 10th 2016 to June 10th 2017 and they give me $15/month discount. I went with 10$/month discount keeping my existing term until February 2017.What I saw today on my account (June 10th): my term was renewed until June 10th 2017 and I have a discount of $10/month... so, completely different from what I chose on the phone with ATT manager (yes, it was a manager, not associate).
My friends, family and myself are receiving harassing texts from 787-679-1131, this is an AT&T number not affiliated with any of the persons recieving these texts. All involved have tried to contact the number but no one answers. Can you please shed some light on how to stop this or what to do to stop this, i would like to press charges against the owner of the number.
I cancelled my AT&T service on 2/17/16. Switched to Cox. Wife did not like it so we switched back to AT&T on 3/27/16. I informed the ATT account rep we wanted the same service we had when we left a month ago. While with AT&T previously we had international calling to Canada as my wife's relatives are ill and she calls them in Canada frequently. Received our first bill and we were charged about $500 for phone calls. Called AT&T many times complaining about our bill and was told there was nothing that could be done. My wife and I are in our late 70s and have never been treated in such a rude manner. This is senior abuse. Apparently, their shareholders do not care how customers are treated. Keep this in mind when shopping for a new phone carrier.
Over one month ago, i spent over 1.5 hours on the telephone with ATT employees with the simple task of transferring or porting my ATT telephone number to my ATT mobile telephone because my law office moved. I was told that the process would take only a few days. It has still not happened and i have received no update. About two weeks ago, i contracted with EFax to "port" my number from ATT, (209)521-3700 to my EFax account and signed all required paperwork. ATT is obstructing that process as well. Meanwhile, ATT has no trouble continuing to bill my ATT account number 139054948, even though zero service is being provided at the address where that account was set up, because as ATT knows. I have been vacant from that address for over one month.
Calling the "customer service" of ATT is one of the most intentionally wasteful experiences any human can ever have. "intentionally" wasteful on the part of ATT management because digital notes by ATT employees are routinely deleted and apparently, only morons, idiots and otherwise unemployed people are hired to work in ATT customer service. The number one question by customer service is "how would you like to pay your bill?". I have no bill owing when i call ATT. ATT is still riding the coat tails of when it was a monopoly; if ATT had to compete in the real world, it would quickly go out of business.
When will ATT either port my number to my cell phone or to my EFax account as i requested? I have 4 iPhones with ATT, internet and DirectV at other buildings. However, very easily, I can along with my friends and relatives can switch everything over to T-Mobile and Comcast. Is that what ATT is all about now? Demanding that your customers switch to T-Mobile and Comcast? I will wait 7 more days for ATT to straighten this out and if not, i know at least 20 current ATT accounts that will get switched to T-Mobile and/or Comcast.
ATT does not have a monopoly anymore; consumers have a choice. Do not have any of your moronic customer service people call me, they have wasted over 10 hours of my time on the phone over the last 3 years and they NEVER accomplish anything. Even you field workers have no use for your customer service employees who have pretend jobs. Time will tell what you will do about this problem; most likely nothing and then you will lose more customers. The reason why T-Mobile and Comcast are growing so fast is because of the profound corruption, dishonesty and incompetence of ATT employees and not because of anything special that T-Mobile or Comcast offer.
I have been able to used as admins on this line for over 5 years the primary is Marie my wife of 10 years. so when my daughter went to your Bethlehem store some ASSHOLE named Richard refused to let me approve the new sim card. I had all the correct info, and when my wife called the woman she spoke to said i am on the account to do these things. They had my granddaughter with them who is sick and had to wait for this butt to flex his muscles. As soon as our accounts expire goodbye AT&T!
I went to 3 AT&T stores to trade in my phone and tablet. Finally in Victorville they had phones and everything I needed. Although they charged me a 35$ stocking fee, I was told to call AT&T and they could possible credit the money. When I called They finally said they would and then got disconnected. When I called back they said that there was no way that could happen and they wouldn't do that and couldn't do that.
I have been an ATT customer for over 20-years, not that, that means anything to them. I have had landline, cable, and now internet service with them. This has got to be the most aggravating company to do service with. It sounds like they are in a boiler room, the lady was not very helpful AT ALL. After waiting SEVERAL minutes to get someone on the phone, they still insist on charging you a $5 convenience fee to process your payment. This is ridiculous! Customer loyalty means nothing to these people!
AT&T debundled my service with Directv and now they're trying to charge me to have it reconnected because they made a mistake the service personnel told me that a system malfunction happen and that's what made my service be discontinued I was under a $25 a month bundle package starting 8/30/15- 8/30/16 but att system shows it was their fault but wants me to pay bill to get service back on when they breached my contract for service I was paying as if I was still under the bundle but I wasn't so they say I responsible to pay all charges both att and Directv, for their company malfunction
They cut my business phone off for no reason. I have three lines, but only one was disconnected. They could not give me a reason as to why this happened. Their mistake cost me a lot of customers, The only help they seem to have, is to put you on hold and apologize for there incompetence. The phone line has been off for over 24 hours with two no show repair appointments. They have only offered to credit me for the time my line was down on my bill. I cannot make up for lost customers and the embarrassment this has caused me personally and my business. I cannot in good conscience rate AT&T on a scale from 1-5, because they are a 0.
This is my last attempt at trying to get AT&T service to our residence. We live just outside of San Antonio, Texas in a subdivision called Trailwood (at 27115 Bent Trail) - it may actually show up as a Boerne, Texas address. We have been trying to get high speed internet service for years, from AT&T, Time Warner and/or GVTC; whoever would bring us service. We presently use HughesNet which rarely works and when it does it is painfully slow. We live on a flag lot, which sets us back from the road. This is also the point where AT&T or Time-Warner would ordinarily bring us a connection - a distance of 937 LF. Right now we use Dish Network to bring us TV service.
When we first built our house in 1998, AT&T brought us a land line from the rear of our property as we butt up to an adjacent subdivision (Highlands Ranch) – just 209 ft from our house! It is also on those same overhead lines that we get our power from CPS! Since my wife and I use our cell phones pretty much exclusively, we terminated our home phone service years ago. Now it seems that AT&T will not or is unwilling to bring us a connection off our back property line!! All necessary utility easements are in place, so we do not understand why we now have this problem.
On numerous occasions we have called AT&T about providing service over the past few years - each time we had given up after being on lengthy phone calls and botched service calls. For years we heard we were simply too far from the road and a signal would not travel far enough to the house without a repeater (sorry - don't recall the jargon or all the technical reasons why), so we could never obtain service. We decided it was just going to be something we could not get answered and gave up.
However, given the increasing importance of internet service and the inconvenience of not being able to work from home in the evenings or on the weekends (since I need reliable/fast internet service), more recently my IT consultant at my business told me our situation was ridiculous and he offered to help. After weeks of calling and explaining, he first helped us schedule to have Time-Warner come out and look at bringing a connection from our front driveway (937 LF away). We actually paid many thousands of dollars nearly 10 years ago to bring power underground in conduit to the front of our property to power a private gate entry along with a separate conduit for cable.
A few weeks ago, Time-Warner came out to survey our property to better understand the installation requirements and it was during that visit my IT guy noticed that AT&T actually had fiber on the overhead lines off our rear property line!!! So, after many subsequent and lengthy calls to AT&T to explain our situation and the availability of fiber right at our back door, we were finally able to schedule to have a technician come out last week to connect us to the fiber! However, I received a call from the tech just prior to the scheduled meeting time. He was on his way and was simply confirming his service order that he was to be installing DSL service from the street! We had to go over everything all over again with him – that we had ordered fiber service. Upon hearing that he said he would need to cancel the order and reschedule after he spoke to his superiors. He added that he would call us back shortly. That was a week ago today - needless to say, no one has called us back and we are back to square one.
Given the close proximity to our rear property line (and fiber from AT&T) we see absolutely no reason why we cannot get high speed service from AT&T from the fiber line in our backyard! The other connection would need to wind its way up our drive way 937 LF to the house – it may not even be possible! But I have to say, we are at our whit’s end. Years of delay and countless hours on the phone on indefinite hold with AT&T staffers. Listening to them typing away on their computer (typing what?) while we wait for any direction – any news, any solution…maybe a site visit - anything. When finally got through to someone about 10-14 days ago after having our call forwarded 3-4 times on just one such call we thought we were going to finally resolve our situation. We explained the whole story to that person. I should add – a person that sounded as though they could make something happen. We sent them an aerial of our property with measurements. We showed them where their AT&T fiber was located. They GOT IT! They said ok – we’ll send out a technician and an installation team! So, we finally thought we were there. Then, as noted above, the technician called last minute and said he did not have orders to connect the fiber, just DSL!
Come on guys. This cannot be that difficult. We cannot be the only residence with a bit of a unique connection dilemma…one by the way that has an easy solution – coming off our rear property line. Why can’t we get service? What takes so long? Why does it appear no one can make a decision? We ae trying to get AT&T to take our money. Please hook us up and take our money? What else can we do or try to get your attention? We are very frustrated with this continuing situation. Your attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated.
First off, I am 40 years old and have NEVER filed a complaint against ANY company EVER!! That being said, this is why I feel it necessary to voice my complaint. I have been what you call a "valued customer" for nearly 25 years. I had a landline, internet and 4 cellular devices with AT&T. My nightmare began a couple years ago when my internet stopped working. I called AT&T and was talked into switching to U-Verse. Ok, no problem! A tech came out and installed my new internet service. I immediately realized the internet connection was extremely slow and ultimately did not work at all. I called AT&T back and they sent a tech out who said he fixed it.
I guess "fixed it" was temporary because a few days later....no service. This happened again and again for several months. I was finally told by an honest tech that the "real" U-Verse wasn't available in my area. Tech said she fixed it but again a few days later baaam...no internet service. I called again and they scheduled my appointment for the next day. The next day came and went and nobody came to my house or called. I called to find out why and was told that they accidentally scheduled me for the following day between 4-8 pm. So the next day I left work early so that I would be there in case they came at 4:00. My husband and I sat in our living room with the front door wide open patiently awaiting the tech. At 9:00 pm I called to find out why the tech hadn't showed. I was told the tech was running late and would be at my house within an hour.
I confirmed, "Your tech is going to come to my house at 10:00 at night?" The customer service rep said, "Yes." Ok, I'll continue to wait and that is what I did until about 12:30 am when I went to bed. The next day I called back to complain that nobody ever came and I was told that the notes stated that the tech came to my house, rang the door bell, knocked and called my phone and nobody answered. Uhmmmm...wrong!!! I had no missed calls or voicemails on my land line or cell phone. I called to complain and was transferred several times to "supervisors". One of the times I was transferred, they just hung up before I even spoke. Another time a "supervisor" would call me back the next day. Nope, that didn't happen. So that being the last straw, I cancelled my internet service and went with a different company. Since they were offering a deal on my landline also, I went ahead and gladly switched.
Jump to the next scene one week ago. My daughter had the iphone 5c. This was the second Iphone 5c that she has had because the first one decided to jump off the diving board into a swimming pool. I replaced the phone at my cost because it was my daughter's fault. So we get the new phone and it is crap from the beginning. Home button never worked, text messaging worked when it wanted to and a few weeks ago the screen cracked in front of our eyes from just picking the phone up. A few days after that, the phone was unusable.
I called AT&T and after being transferred from Insurance to warranty to whoever else and had to explain the story each time, I was told that they would ship us a Iphone 5s priority shipping and we would not need to use my upgrade. She did tell me that they would have to charge my account $400 but that they would credit my account $400. Not sure why but whatever...I agreed. Priority shipping would take 2-5 days. This was a Sunday so I figured it would be here by Friday. So the week went by and Friday night, still no phone. I called AT&T and was told the phone was accidentally shipped to the wrong address so they stopped shipping and had it sent back. (They sent it to my mother's address which makes ZERO sense.)
I was also told that they tried calling me to tell me that there was an issue with the shipping. Surprising...I must get no reception anytime AT&T calls me because I had no missed calls or voicemails on my cell phone or land line again!!! So I asked for them to overnight it to me since it has now been one week with my daughter having no phone. I was told they could not overnight it and the lady I spoke with last Sunday gave me false information and they would not be able to send me a phone without doing an insurance claim. See above- I already talked to Insurance!! They transferred me elsewhere!!! I finally asked if she (Amari) was going to help me and she said not without an insurance claim.
Which would take several more days and priority shipping would be 2-5 days again (if they sent it to the right address this time). I told her that I was fed up with AT&T and that I was highly considering switching to another company. The lack of care in her voice and her unwillingness to try and even attempt to fix this pushed me right out the door.
You just lost a "valued customer". The two words that you say to me every time I call. The two words that mean nothing to me based on your actions. I can tell my kids I love them every day but I have to show them that I love them for them to believe it.
I sign up for a AT&T services this month, it has been the biggest nightmare. I signed for wireless tv service, while the tech was installing I noticed all the wire. The tech and I called customer service to correct the problem and it wanted him to do them a favor and change the order. He informed them that he could not do that. I have been promised by several reps that they would call me back, but to this day, they have not. The internet service is so slow, it frustrating to try and log on. It is impossible to speak to someone who speaks proper English and understand the problem.
AT&T representatives offered to keep my account open when I informed them I was switching to a competitor. They did not disclose that doing so would result in a recurring $7 monthly charge. Upon receiving my first bill, I called to AT&T to dispute the charge, but AT&T refuses to remove it.
I was riding my bicycle Northbound on Indian Creek Drive (Miami Beach FL, 33141). Indian Creek Drive has parallel parked cars between Harding Ave and Byron Ave . According to Florida Statute 316.2065, a bicyclist is required to stay 4 feet from parallel parked cars, therefore I know I was well within my rights. On this segment, an AT&T Vehicle (Licence Plate BQZ M14) began tailgating me, and honking his horn for 2 blocks because he wanted to turn on Byron apparently. I would like to send a complaint to HR and have this driver reprimanded for reckless driving and possibly assault with a deadly weapon!
Been with AT&T for many years. I thought for many years I had a non-pub and or unlisted number and no personal info listed. I was wrong. After realizing my number was listed thru all sources, google, internet, white pages. etc. others. I tried a few years ago to resolve but still not corrected. In addition, AT&T has the worst customer service w the automated system. Just now I've been on here 12 hrs or more, waiting, hold, connections transferred to wrong deptartments. Automated system is disconnected and or connected out of the country...Asia, China, Phillipines, Puerto Rico... I know it is cost effective for the company, but not the customers. No offense...but I just cant understand the dialect most times. So so so dissatisfied. Former employee/Retiree.
I was attempting to request repair in my phone due to a data usage problem! I was informed "twice" that a supervisor would call me to handle the issue! Still no contact. However I get a bill reminder "promptly" every month from the billing department.
They quoted me a price to sign up for new service and lied about the price. I'm now paying ten dollars more for the exact same service than when I bundled my home phone with internet. Ihad home phone and internet with them for 50 total with taxes. now its 57$ plus taxes. The rep lied to me because i went over this with him in great detail. AT&T will not lower my rate and apologizes.
Our front yard was torn up last fall while installing underground service. The repair off the lawn is unacceptable, it is rough and the seeding grass will not grow in the poor dirt quality. Other ares in the neighbor hood had been prepared for sod. Ours is on a cul-de-sac and out of site to daily traffic. I want my lawn repaired like others
3/17/2016 - No phone service(landline) no internet as well. 1st appointment 3/18/16 had to cancel toward the end of the promised time as I had to leave the house. Rescheduled for 3/18/16 PM and services reestablished by 9:30PM. 3/21/16 - rental unit in same house without any service; AT&T provided them with services the same evening. However, I again had no more phone or internet services(3/21/16). Another AT&T appointment 3/22/16 (now the 4th one) made and was informed that service man the evening before had given my line to rental unit and just cut me out and left me without services. Not only that the service man on 3/21/16 refused to reestablish my line as he did not have a "ticket".
Knowing very well that he had just given my line to his customer and that I was left without services. What kind of way is this to treat a customer? Unacceptable. It took 4 appointments and a lot of waiting time to have my services reinstalled. To reimburse me for all this inconvenience and unprofessional way of handling this matter I would appreciate if you would wave my service charges for one month. Thanking you in advance.
In February 2016, AT&T came to our subdivision, Kingsbridge East in Oviedo, Florida to install Uverse fiber optics. With the recent rains in March, the area excavated by AT&T had collapsed revealing a three inch hole in the sewer line resulting in raw sewage flowing through the hole onto the exposed ground. The hole is approximately 3 feet deep and 4 feet across and next to the sidewalk. On March 26 we called the repair line at 1-877-737-2478 and opened a ticket as this was an immediate concern for health and safety.
Not having any response from AT&T by March 28th we were forced to call a plumber and have repairs made that totaled $544.27.As of March 29th we still have yet to hear from AT&T. We have attempted to call to find the status of the open ticket and were given the runaround. We are long term wireless customers and are extremely disappointed wi response to an immediate health and safety matter. We expect reimbursement and to have the hole filled. AT&T equipment appears to be damaged also.
Hard to write with limited time. Techs came yesterday upgrade service. Now nothing works spend3 hours on phone missed NCAA playoffs. So upset. TVs out internet out after speaking last tech over an hour lost connection and never called me back even though we confirmed call back number. He also mad me cancel the appointment I had set up for tech before he would help me so my poor experience will get worse when I need call again tomorrow. So frustrated!
In March 21, 2016. I ask for update the phone service from limited service to unlimited service adding $10.00. with the representative over the phone the total amount will be $57,00 plus taxes. Today I received an e-mail showing a combination the statement with Direct TV what we never touch in our conversation. Please correct or keep two separates statement one for DTV and another for phone an internet. I wish to fix this matter as soon possible. I hope to receive an answer to my claim.
in January 2016 At&t called us about changing from At&t internet to U-verse service. The Customer Service Agent explained that they was changing DSL to U-verse because they was discontinuing DSL. She explained how U-verse would speed up the internet because they was switching to fiver optics. My husband agree to the change. She stated the bill would be $62.00 plus taxes for 12 months. He asked her would their be any problems with the switch. She stated no because I'm putting in the computer. She gave him the date and time.
On January 16 2016 around 2:00 pm a young man came to my home to install the U-verse equipment. In February we receive a bill from At&t for $77.28 I pay the bill at the At&t store after paying the bill. U-verse send us a bill for $161.13 for February and March with a $9.00 late fee stating that never received the payment for February. I called the representative and explained how we received two bills for one service and your representative blame us for not looking at bill he when on to say that we will receive a check for the $77.28 by mail in for to six weeks.
I got very upset with the Supervisors Lopez ID XY92B32 he was very unprofessional. He told us he would split the payment, on March 11, 2016 we would pay $80.56 and on March 26, 2016 we would pay $80.57 this was the arrangements. Now they saying we can't get my $77.28 back no one knows where my money went to but it is showing on my At&T bill and i have my receipt. I'm paid two bills for February.
My question is where is my $77.28 and why couldn't they transfer the money from my At&t account into my U-verse account. I'm entitle to my money back. They never cancel my At&T bill now I have two for one of service. I'm hoping to hear from you soon.
If I could give a negative star I would. I waited for over 3 weeks for service to be set up after a move. I was told the first time there was a problem with tje outside box and the installation guy couldn't fix it. Inwas rescheduled for another week out for the second installation guy to say the problem was never fixed. After spending 2 hours being bounced around on the phone no one could give me a straight answer or guarantee my services would be fixed. I still have no service and not one employee at att can help me or tell me the problem. This is the absolute worse service I have ever seen in my life.
Grossly over billed for services. Was on phone with 3 customer service reps for over two hours, only to be told be all 3 of them that their phones and Internet were not working!!! And this is their business! One rep was located in Montego Bay, one sounded Chinese, the other sounded Indian. All said they were having too many technical issues to resolve my problem!
I am the Manager of Richard's Buckhead Collision and we have been loyal customers of AT&T for along time and have had several business that had chosen AT&T. I was very disappointed and frustrated that I could not get to talk to any customer service and my calls were automatically being transferred to a collection agency. Our account is current and we do not see why I could not have the opportunity to talk to live person to understand what was going on. Attaching a bill showing our account is current. I need an immediate explanation of what is going on. If I do not receive an immediate response, will take action to report to appropriate agency.
I dealt with three different employees. The problem was a difficult one, and it took two referrals and three employees to resolve it. The first employee (AT&T Mobility) gave poor help. She could not deal withn the problem and transferred me to the wrong department (billing). The employee in Billing did not have the resources to respond to my problem but found and gave me the number she had for the problem I described. She also was helpful and patient even though she had no resources for dealing with it. The number she gave me was disconnected but gave a new number to call. At that number (U-Source) the service representative gave good service, seemed to have access to the resources to deal with it, and gave me other useful information.
The situation was that I was receiving multiple calls from "the Federal Investigation Department" threatening to "go to court" with certain unspecified charges. I knew the falsity of the calls and called the number given twice to ask that they stop calling me. After repeated additional calls (six times yesterday) I verified that the incoming calls and the return call were from the same number and that it traced to AT&T Mobility. I called AT&T Mobility, described the problem and suggested they investigate. They told me they could do nothing unless the calls were coming to my cell phone. I explained the calls were coming to my land line, not my cell phone. Finally they said I should request a blocking order. I requested to be transferred to the proper department to do that.
The department I reached was the billing department. The woman I spoke to there was patient and helpful and researched the number to call. The number I called had been disconnected. I called again to make sure I had dialed right and got the same message but noted a new number, which turned out to be the number which connected to a U-Verse number where I got the blocking order and obtained other useful information.
SUMMARY: the AT&T Mobility service was neither helpful nor forwarded my call correctly. The billing department was the wrong department but patiently went over the problem and gave me the most recent information she had, which was outdated but apparently correct. The only flaw was that she didn't sem to have received information about the change. The U-Verse service was excellent.
Still get shutdown. On Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 11:45 PM I emailed my complaint directly to AT&T Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org. I wanted to tell them about the requested AT&T wireless account change. Apparently my phone’s SIM card was disabled when I change SIM card for my son’s phone. After hours I still can not get my phone restored. Please fix it, the number is linked to a very unhappy customer.
I had one of the most upsetting, disappointing, and stressful experience with an AT&T employee the last night. I had a problem where the charger connector could not connect to the port on my iPhone. I went to a female employee at the Kaneohe location (#808-236-4494) and she assessed the situation as a loss and that I would have to file a claim to get a new one. She told me to get a cheap phone from Walmart or Target until I receive my phone. I then proceeded to Target and purchased a $15 flip phone and $30 refill card. I wanted to get a second opinion, so I went back to the same AT&T today and met with one of a representative whom I fully trust. He looked at my phone and just said that there was lint in it, so he cleaned it and it worked great! He said that it was a common problem for those who put their phone in their pants pocket. He was then able to charge my phone.
So, I went back to Target to get a refund on my items, but unfortunately, they could not refund me the $30 refill card. I would still have to pay this bill on my credit card! I feel that AT&T should refund me the amount for the refill card since the purchase of these items could have been avoided. I don't understand why there was such a discrepancy between the two representatives. Is it due to lack of training? Ignorance? Incompetency? I feel that AT&T needs to remedy such unfortunate situations such as these. I have told my friends and family about this and I know this will have an impact on this company unless something is resolved. I am a loyal customer to AT&T and I want to continue having this company as my carrier. Please let me know what the solution will be. Thank you very much for your time and support regarding this matter.
On 10/14/2015, I called AT&T to ask if there were any options available that would lower our wireless bill and to also ask about upgrading my iPhone 5s and my husband's iPhone 4. I was transferred to AT&T's "Retention"/"Loyalty" Dept. (I put those in quotation marks because I am not sure if the "Retention" Dept. is the same as the "Loyalty" Dept.-I don't think that some of the AT&T customer service representatives know if there is a difference either!)
When I was finally connected to the "Retention" Dept.; I spoke with a representative named "Mary Ann". Mary Ann reviewed my bill and said that she could double my data (from 3GB to 6GB) at "no extra charge." I was happy with that and she said that she would have that taken care of.
During this same conversation with Mary Ann (on10/14/2015), I asked how much it would cost for my husband and I to upgrade our existing iPhone 5s and iPhone 4 to either an iPhone 6, 6plus, 6s, or 6s plus. I specifically asked what the monthly cost was for the different GBs of each iPhone model under their NEXT plan. I also asked her how much each phone cost if bought outright.
Mary Ann informed me that if I upgraded BOTH phones, my bill would be $116.66. (She also offered two free Otterbox cases.) I reviewed the amount of my bill with the two upgrades 3 times; to ensure there was no misunderstanding when I reviewed this with my husband.
In addition, I asked Mary Ann to note my account to document what we discussed (the doubling of data from 3GB to 6GB at no additional charge, the 128GB iPhone 6s Plus pricing, two free Otterbox cases and what my bill would be if I upgraded BOTH phones). I asked her to note this discussion on my account to avoid any confusion if I called AT&T to order the iPhones or if I went to an AT&T retail store to purchase the phones.
Little did I know that this was the beginning of an ongoing and still unresolved NIGHTMARE. Since my initial call with Mary Ann on 10/14/15, I have called AT&T at least 5 times; with each call lasting anywhere between 45 minutes to a little over an hour. I have been transferred, hung up on, and have been told that there is nothing that can be done. My most recent call was yesterday, 2/29/16, which lasted 2 hours and 8 minutes.
Mary Ann failed to properly document our conversation regarding the price of the phones she quoted and what she quoted for my bill. She also failed to double my data as she had promised, which resulted in some inept person messing up my data plan, being charged for a "change" in my plan and losing rollover data.
Yesterday was the straw that broke the camel's back. I was told by AT&T Customer Service that "there is nothing more that we can do for you". And that I will need to go to an AT&T retail store to resolve these pricing and billing issues. That didn't make sense to me, but since I needed to pay my bill anyway, I went to the AT&T store in an attempt to resolve these issues. This turned out to be a waste of time. At the store, it was suggested to me that the only way to lower my bill was to lower my data plan to 2GB.
I almost lost it! I explained to them that my data plan is not the issue, since I was receiving 6GB of data for the price of 3GB due to the double your data promotion in October 2015. Rosa, the manager at my local AT&T store was just as inept and unhelpful as Customer Service! She said that this was a Customer Service issue; so I could come back when I had more time and I could contact Customer Service while I was at the store. For what?! So she could look at me while I call Customer Service?! That was ridiculous.
The Customer Service at AT&T really sucks. They lie and lead you to believe you will be receiving what you were promised; then purposely do not document you account. Which then leaves you on the hook for paying way more than you were promised, or having to decide if you want to pay a termination fee to get away from them, their shady practices, their crappy customer service and their overly inflated cost of services.
I had this service for five years. I called because of I was having trouble paying the bill. I had to cut my favorite stations to get a discount. I went without channel 7 for almost a month. If I called the customer service I will not get any help.
At&t Hasn't provided a reference channel line up card with numbers any time recently. I can down load a colored chart, but it lacks channel numbers. When I select movies, news channels, etc the channel names and numbers are shown, but when I hit print the same color coded chart, with no numbers is displayed.
When I try to print the pages that show all channels by plans each page must be printed separately, which will use hundreds of pages. Universe should provide a durable color folded card by service from basic through 450. In short AT&T should provide a quick reference card or come up with a way to print one. I like universe, but find feed back to the company lacking and is not to be found.
I bought a Beatbox Portable Devise around three years ago. I notice it was not working so I bought it to the Apple store. I bought it from the Apple Store for around $399. My family loved the bluetooth box. It was so maddening when the Apple Store said they do not work or replace any items on the Beatbox to date.
Really AT&T, you say that to a customer who has phone service for their family and who purchases items from you on a regular basis. Apple said to go to a store that fixes Iphones or computers that works with AT&T items. I took the beatbox and they cannot work on it because they cannot get the parts. How many companies put an item in their stores that retail for $400.00 and do not have replacements for this item to be fixed after three years.
Our contract is coming up with our phones and we are very disappointed in your service for a very expensive Beatbox that cannot be looked at or fixed. Shame on your company for the consumer. I would like to have a response from your organization on this matter. Something to believe that you care about your consumer. I bought the box at the AT&T store in West Chester Ohio. I live now in Sarasota Florida. I just took it to the AT&T store in the UTC Mall, 2831 University Pky-Sarasota, FL 34243.
On 1/15/16 I called Customer Service to check on Account #847-674-3342 because the phone in my husband's room in a nursing home wasn't working. I was told that 3 bills were sent and not paid. I didn't receive the bills. I found out they were sending them directly to the nursing home and they were not forwarding to me, I talked to Joshua in Customer Service and requested they make sure the address on the bill was my home address.
This month again I didn't get a bill. I talked to Antonio in Customer Service and he again changed the address. He said he woud take another billing cycle before this change would be in effect. I don't understand why it takes that long to change an address. My husband depends on this phone to contact me about any issues that come up in the nursing. It is very important that I receive this bill on time.
My experiences with AT&T products is fine. i am mad that your people have sprayed expensive plants with orange paint in North Raleigh. I am not buying fiber optic use and have told you so. My computer is with Time Warner and will stay that way. You do not have the right to tear up my yard by digging. It is too hard to grow a yrad here, and I have rare and expensive plants, too.
The least you can do is contact me. If you are digging, You need to let me know so that I can remove the plants and take them to my greenhouse and replant them at a later date. I am thoroughly disgusted. As far as I am concerned, this is vandalism.
I am learning disabled and choose to write over calling. Warrenton, Ga 30828 is where I live. The internet service here is beyond poor especially in the morning and evening. During the day it is fair. I see where my connections are coming from a tower in North Augusta, SC. That is ridiculous. If you cannot provide me with faster and more stable connection, i would like to discontinue my u-verse & at&t account if we cannot resolve the issue. would need a technician to come to house and do all the work for me...i cannot take instructions over phone.
I will use all resources to register this complaint and express my most unhappy experience that started when U-verse was installed. Also, you don't even have this service at all at my cabin. Thank you to the customer service person who finally helped me with this this. I know nothing is your fault, but your attention to this matter would be appreciated.
I was on the phone for an hour trying to add a service to my mother's land line phone. I called the number on their website for New Hampshire customers and I was told I was calling for South East customers. In all I was told to call 5 different numbers (some of them the same ones I already called). The last time I asked to speak to a manager but was put on hold for another department. I finally hung up. Changing over to Fairpoint. Everyone I talked to (but 2 people) had accents and were very hard to understand. I have never had such a problem in my life as this.
I called ATT customer service in attempt to extend my payment arrangement two days so my direct deposit could hit my account. I spoke with a woman who was more eager to end her shift than assist me. I asked to speak with a supervisor & ended up speaking to a Tia Wheeler who stated she could not help me even though I've been with ATT for sometime. It was made very clear they would rather loose a consumer than work with individuals.
I asked for the customer service representative name I spoken with earlier & was told she is no longer on the phone so I wouldn't need it & she refused to provide me with their location so that when I did "complain" it would be a bit more difficult for them to track down exactly whom I was speaking to. I am very disappointed in the treatment I have received & will be looking to move my business elsewhere. I cannot support a company who is quick to take people's money yet lacks the proper customer service skills needed. After all we are the reason any of your employees have a job.
I am wondering why your employees have to lay to us. The told me and my wife when we went to the AT&T store in Moore, OK. to see about if we could get a better deal on a new contract. First they told us we would have to go to Directv because they are getting rid of uverse tv. Also your installers told us the same thing the you were finding out uverse services. Your installers said that new customers would have to have directv that they were not going to fade out uverse all together. We are about 75% satisfied with our service.
We told our neighbors that they said about uverse being fading out. But the came over and said they got a new uverse contract from the same store. They told them that they were not going to fade out uverse. Now I fill stupid that I told them anything. So five employees lied to us. So I would like for you to have your service people come out and do there work in the future and just not speak unless spoken to. Now the contract is in my wife name and not mine. I just want you to know that I do not like or need to be lied to.
I`'ve had to contact AT&T customer service representatives since January about adding and having a technician out to connect internet to my services. On February 3rd I called off of work and they were scheduled from 1-3pm. No one showed but I received a text stating " they were sorry they missed me"!! I was home from work waiting.
They rescheduled for Saturday the 5th from 11-1 and at 9 am I receive a text again "sorry I missed you" ! I have been on the phone all day with one department to another just to get rescheduled again. Who makes sure these technicians are following through? Is there even communication between departments?? This is the worst service ever.
I was never told I had to wait 6months to unlock my prepaid phone. I want to switch carriers but can't. So if I want more Data on my hone I have to pay $15 more if I stay with AT& T. I bought the phone and don't owe any money, I should be able to use my phone where ever I want to. We will be filing a complaint with the BBB and telling everyone we know to stay away from AT&T. Your customer service reps are not very helpful. Told us you bought your phone at Walmart they don't know anything about AT&T. Well it wasn't just them that didn't tell us your cs reps didn't either.
We have contacted customer service more than 20 times now. We have been given the run around with several departments. We have been having the same trouble with land line for over a year now. The phone has a humming noise that is so bad that you can barely hear the party speaking. We have had technicians out and they have not been able to fix it. The last technician said that the underground cable to the house is bad and needs replacing. That's been over 6 months now and no one has been out to replace it. We have been paying our phone bill on time and have not missed a payment. We really feel that we are getting taken advantage of and being charged for a service that cannot be used. We have bundled with our cell phones.
01/25/16 Made a credit card payment over the phone to pay off the balance of an installment plan for a phone purchase. 01/25/16 ATT misapplied the payment to the phone bill in general rather than the installment plan. Made several phone calls to several different departments to get this matter corrected. The best ATT can do is refund the payment to the credit card. 01/25/16 ATT refunded the payment back to the credit card. 01/26/16 Made a second attempt to pay off the installment plan with a credit card over the phone. Was careful to explain the problems from the previous day to insure this would not happen again.
01/26/16 ATT misapplied the payment again to the phone bill in general rather than the installment plan. 01/27/16 Am now on the phone with ATT for over 2 hours and 22 minutes to have yet another refund of credit card charges and will now have to pay a 3rd time to try and get this installment plan paid off. No words can express the incompetence of a company that can not take a payment and apply it correctly.
My name is Nicole and I have been a customer of AT&T for about 10 years now, I currently have four devices on my plan which I am paying for by myself and my bill is well over $200 a month (not the problem). My problem is with one of my devices, It loses service, drops calls, gets call interference and the battery is poor. I called customer service and they did a trouble shooting session with no result and the phone was under warranty so they were able to send me a refurbished phone without issue.
I received the refurbished phone and all was well for awhile but then the same issue started happening again so again I call customer service get the trouble shooting run around of course it didn't help and this time it is out of warranty however, I have insurance on it and I can send it back yet again but this time with a 200$ deductible. My contract for this particular device is not up until June of 2017 and if I wanted to upgrade to a different phone I would have to pay 389$ to get myself out of that contract and in to a different one. The thing is I refuse to pay $200 to send it back to Asurion (spelling?) only to get the same phone yet again and probably have the same issues with, and I do not feel that I should have to pay almost $400 on a defective phone. customer service was rude, unhelpful and transferred me to 3 different departments with no help.
I have recommended them to friends and co-workers since I've always had great luck with them, but I think it's a complete breech of contract for them to make me get the same phone I am unsatisfied with or pay such a high amount to get a device that works. All I am asking for is to upgrade this phone that does not work, that I have gone through all the motions with without having to pay the remaining $389 . It's not like the user just got sick of the phone, it legitimately is defective.
I would rather pay for a NEW upgrade on a different phone that will work. I would like to mention also that the other 3 users on my account have no trouble with their phones, they are all different brands, and we all use our phones in the same places so it's not like this user is going out a coverage area. Please help, I am fed up and I feel its immoral and quite frankly illegal to continue to charge someone for something that doesn't work and or make them pay to get the same device that they are unhappy with
I switched over from sprint last year to save money but instead the I’m paying $100 more than I was. I have a $700 bill in collections because you didn’t pay my trade in phones. I have a home phone on my acct that has never been activated. And I didn’t want. I have been to 3-4 Mn ATT stores and know one can help because they don’t know what they are doing! I need to get my bill down $100 that I was promised. And upgrades for my phones as promised every 12 months with no additional fees! Very poor service disappointing!!
My wife was talked into bundling several months ago our cell phones, direct tv service and our house phone witch was version service. Every since our house phone only works part of the time, and we lost our fax service. We have complained to the Barstow office where you pay your bill and have been told they will up the issue to the proper place in AT&T complaint dept. to get the issue resolved. To date no one has shown up to see what kind of problems we have here at our house with our wireless house phone and to say it only works part of the time. I'm asking you to send one of your expert tecks out here to see what the issue here is so we can have what we are paying for monthly witch we have not have since we were talked into months ago. Please call me on my cell phone at 760 267 3855 to see what the issue is here. Thank you. We have spent way to much money on your service that is not working. thank you again. Please respond.
Bill was switched to paperless without conformation from me as a customer. I notify them that I did not want this to happen and I received a letter that stated that my next billing would not come thru the mail. I do not trust e-mail enough to rely receiving my bill thru this method and I do not trust AT&T with any of my info to direct bill. I called and spoke to one person and she could help me and I was passed to another person, no info was provided to the next person. I had to provide all that info again. customer service??????? This person was off shore. No personal feelings for their customers just dollar signs AT&T. Gonna cost you in the end. This is not the problem I have had. U-Verse and mobile phone??
tried to find out about direct tv discounts for retired att employees no luck called at least 5 toll free numbers no luck maybe that is why spectrum service is so much better there stock is over 300 a share att is 30 a share if ceo an board stop being concerned about there on checks an start to work on problems maybe service would be better a change would be better than talk talk is cheap 4786763513
I wish I could give this horrible company a big ZERO. My husband is 80 yrs old and I am almost 67. We were no longer under contract with AT&T and wanted to buy new phones for Christmas. We were told if my husband dropped his number we could take advantage of the BOGO offer of buy one for me and get hubby's free. We did it and was told after all charges and tax our bill would be around 285.00 each month. It took me and Hubby from 11 to almost 7 o'clock on Nov. 27 to get these phones with no time for food. Hubby noticed a few days later that his old phone was still active. I called numerous times and stayed on the line for 30 minutes talking with nothing resolved. I called back to question charges and it took the second guy over one hour to go over all the bogus charges with me. AT @ T had presented me with a 400.00 + bill after me paying about $500.00 dollars for fees for the phones. They also said I had 6 lines and then changed that figure to 5 lines. I only have 4 lines. Nothing resolved but a small credit of $30. I CANNOT and WILL NOT PAY over $400 dollars for 4 lines when it was suppose to be buy one get one FREE on two of the lines. I asked to speak to a supervisor but AT & T refused each time to connect me. UPSET SENIOR CITIZENS IN LAS VEGAS!!!!!
I canceled my contract service and switched to a prepaid account. I called at&t billing (VESTA) and canceled my auto pay. AT&T has no record, but I have it on my call log.
In short: AT&T has structured their billing, service, contract, prepaid services so that you can't get a refund.
AT&T has no clear or defined path to get a refund. They can't be sued, so they have placed themselves above the law.
I do believe a monkey with a blindfold on could handle business better than the AT&T customer service people do. I called in to have my Tv & internet bundled (combine the 2 bills into 1). By September they were combined but not the bill. Called in Oct.~ Nov.( told it would "defiantly" be done by Dec. Well it ain't. Now by Jan. billing. Somebody don't have a clue what they are doing.o believe a monkey with a blindfold on could handle business better than the AT&T customer service people do.

Installation for ATT U-verse has been scheduled and rescheduled 5 times after moving. The local store says out of our control, we don't have any options that is how ATT works now.
I called in to renew my contract and was told I could get fiber to the home for the same amount that I am currently paying so I explained that they had
just completed placing the fiber in my back yard but has not been lit yet. However your customer service department are selling a product that is not working they dispatch a tech just to confirm what I already know that I can not get fiber to my home even though it's right in my back yard because the engineers have not completed their job. The second problem that I have is trying to talk to someone in customer service that's not from the US and can barely speak English and I have to request to speak to someone in the US this is a problem. I live work and pay taxes in the US and when I pick up the phone to call a US company I should speak to someone here in the US. Your customer service is awful maybe if you focused on making the customer happy instead of trying to sell the customer something or upgrade their service things might just work out. I am on the phone right now with customer service and as usual I was told one thing this morning and its not in the notes and no one can seem to help me so I guess it's time for me to move to another company that want's my business and can delivery on what they say they can and have a English speaking customer service. I called back and finally got to speak to someone in retention and was told in order to correct the problem they would have to dispatch out a tech and I just had a tech out this morning. This is just one example of how the customer service department transfer you from one department to another and no one takes ownership
I bought a two phones for the price of one deal at an AT&T satellite store but AT&T refuses to honor the deal and continues to charge me for both phones. The store admits fault but can not fix it and AT&T says the store has to fix the problem. Great job passing the buck back and forth. Can we choose 0 stars?
To whom it may Concern,
My Name is: William Barona Phone # (305) 510-1910
The Reason I’m writing this letter to inform you that I’m real disappointed with AT&T.
I’ve been with AT&T for a long while and had all you’re I phone’s from the beginning.
I recently upgraded my phone from an Iphone X to an IPhone Xs Max 512GB, which
Is a 1,500.00 dollar phone not to mention? Two after I received the phone I started to
Issues with it, but didn’t reach out to Tat till yesterday I purchased the phone on
Nov 26, 2018 and Received it on Nov 28, 2018. My phone kept locking up and when I
Tried to restart it, it would take up 30min to reboot up. Which it is not normal, so I decided
To get ahold of you people yesterday on Dec 6, 2018, which I know I have 14 days to return this
Phone back to you guys. But all I wanted was to get my phone either fixed or replaced, but all I kept
Was getting the run around from you Guys. It started like this:
1: I called Customer service in the Morning of Dec 6,2016 and explained all the issues I was having with the phone and trouble shouted the fix and you’re agent came to the conclusion that I needed to have my phone replaced and that I should pick up at your local At&T Store.
2. Went to Three different AT&T Stores, but two of them were out of the one I have. The last one
In Jacksonville, FL 9508 Crosshill Blvd (904) 317-2778 I went was the rudest AT&T store I’ve ever been in
I ask to have my phone replaced and they look at me like I was Crazy and Told Me I need to go to the
Apple store, which I explained to the about the 14 day return policy you have and they told me it wasn’t
Their problem, so instead of making a big commotion, I left.
3. Got in my Car and started to drive Home, which is an Hour drive from where I live and after wasting my time and Gas driving all over Jacksonville looking to have my phone replaced. I decided to call you guys again. I went thru all the same thing I went with your prior Agent on the phone for 53min, then she told me that she was going to send me a shipping Label to return my phone back to you guys, after
My replacement got to me, but never happened. Then she transferred me to Apple technical support
And they didn’t even know anything or why I was on the phone taking to them.
4. Call you customer Service Again, after being hung up on and got another Agent about 7:00Pm
And this Agent to me that they couldn’t do anything for me. That the only thing I could do was file a claim with my insurance to have my for replace. Which I explained the whole fiasco bac to him and also
Got hung up by.
5. Finally Made Home and Called you guys once again, and received the same round around about me needing to speak to Apple. I told you’re Agent that I didn’t Buy the IPhone for $ 1,500.00 from Apple,
That I bought from you guys and she said that I still need to talk to Apple, which she transferred me to
And one again went thru all the same things I went thru with your agents and trouble shouted again and then I spoke to an Apple Supervisor, which Stayed that At&T needed to Swap my Phone out, Not
Apple. Since I had just purchased from you guys on Nov 28, 2018. And Still Have no Resolution.
6. I’ve been very pleased with AT&T all these years, Till Yesterday. And Considering Switching Carriers.
Jessie Wilson very upset concerning the experience I had with getting my elder sister service transferred. Annie Davis moved from 1706 st Charles rd to 2321 s 14th ave. REP work order transfer her from 1706 to 1706 I was told they had to redo work order and reschedule. No service on Nov 30th_ resch for Dec 1_ still no service- my sister live alone do not use cell phone, only phone she have house phone. She had to go without any service from Nov 30th to Dec 4th? No one showed up on Mon 3rd as promised_ keep in mind this was a medical emergency. My mother in law died in that same house trieding to get her phone turned on for a medical device. Att gave her the run around also.
I've been trying since my July billing cycle (it's December) to get an early long distance package cancellation fee removed from my bill. At the time in question I did NOT have a special long distance package and was using the basic unlimited long distance service. When I change my local calling package (and both services have different contract dates which would conveniently cause a fee no matter when you cancelled service) they tacked an extra $56.33 to my bill. I have all of the bill and all of the rep. numbers and when I call back this week I'm cancelling every service and I wish them the best of luck collecting any sort or cancellation fees.
Received a spoof call from am AT&T number caller stated he was Sam Johnson with AT&T. Called AT&T and was directed to my phone service provider to block their number. (A service I have to pay for). Rep was rude, curt, and extremely unhelpful!
Yet another reason to NEVER use AT&T again!
AT&T has dug a hole behind my fence to put in a line on Monday, November 26, 2018. First off, I was not notified of the service that was going to be done regarding digging up my yard. The dirt removed from the hole dug has been piled up against my brand new fence and is weight bearing. It is suppose to rain today which will cause much tension on the fence on top of that making stain marks and rotting the fence. I had my fence raised off the ground with a kick board to keep from the dirt rotting the wood. The hole digging started about 3 weeks ago in the yard across the street from me and the only activity since that time has been twice. I would like the dirt removed today off of my fence. If this problem is not solved within 24 hours I will contact my attorney and take further action.
Your cooperation in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Discontinued service package with ATT Uverse/directv. Returned equipment immediately and was then asked to prove it. Fortunately I had a receipt from shipper. I kept getting bills from AT&T but credits from Directv and called about confusion. AT&T told me to ignore the bills and they would send a correction. Instead they sent my account to collections. I have excellent credit and pay on time. The agent I talked to said it was documented that I called about the bills and was told I would get a correction. Now I'm told that the credit from Directv should have been applied to AT&T. You screwed up and now I have a ding on my credit.
I've been trying to get service for over a month now and AT&T is just giving me the run a round on this. We will have appointments schedule and then you can they don't show an appointment and the tech people do not ever call to let you know that they are own their way or running late to the appointment. At this point I'm sick of AT&T will not telling me the truth and treating their customers this way. I want this issue resolve because I left one service to join this service because people say that they have no problems but I'm having too many problems with this company.
My cable went out on 11/23/2018 and when I contacted AT&T I was given a date of 11/25/2018 for a tech to come out between the hours of 10am and 12 noon. I told the customer service rep, that I had to go to work by 1pm, she said she would place a note in the record. on 11/25/2018. I spoke with Mindy, Barbara and Stella, who all stated the tech was enroute and was held up on a previous call and will be at my apartment by 12 or 12:15. He did not arrive and I did not get a call from him until 1:39pm stating he was on the way. I was late for work and at work when I called. This is unacceptable for two reasons. One I take my work home and could not do anything on my computer because I had no service. Two, I have a job and it is very inconsiderate to think I should just wait on whatever time a tech decides to show up. It is not worth it. I no longer want the service and was told when I called to cancel by Tia, I would have to pay a disconnection fee of $300 dollars. She was not concerned that I did not have service and that no one arrived at the times stated to repair whatever the issues were, just that someone called me an hour and half after the scheduled time to say they were on the way, when I was at work. I have ATT service on two home addresses, and am going to cancel both. The customer service is not worth the headache, nor is the tech service working when they should. The communication is horrible. If al you can say to me is to "recap what they think they did for me" is most important than, AT&T missed the mark. I am not going to pay a $300 dollar disconnect fee when the service was not up to standard, and will fight it in court.
I have been trying for several weeks to get a resolution to a telephone number assignment fixed. I have been assigned a telephone number that apparently has been left open for a former person who had this number. I have experience numerous calls including group texts. And now apparently a relative of the previous owner of the number as put a cash.app request and texted to my phone. All of this has been alerted to AT&T twice before but nothng resolved. All they did was block certain numbers, but I have many others that continued to text. I have chatted with someone on line and talked to someone to the recommended number to call. Still no progress. I have been given the run around in the store as well.While I plan to visit AT&T again, I am filing this complaint because no one called me back, or they made ridiculous, not helpful information except to block out the phone.
We have called ATT customer support 4 times since June 2018. It is now November 22, 2018 and we called again. We pay on time and in full every month. We continue to get extremely poor service, no pictures, continuous error messages. You customer support people today Jeremy and Natalie were extremely poor in there help. Actually they did not help at all. Jeremy actually told me that he will not credit my account (since I am staring at a blank TV because we have not called every day about the problem. Again, we have called 4 times since June 2018. If that is not a consistent problem, I do not know what is. We have changed many boxes, HDMI cords (at our cost) and this does not permanently resolve the problem. Bottom line, we will change providers as soon as we can. Once again you have lost more customers.
Please do not email me and tell me "your sorry", I needed a credit on my account and Jeremy would not help with this. If your CEO received this kind of service, I don't think he/she would pay for the service. The right thing to have done today by Jeremy is give me the credit I was asking for, but he refused.
ATT did have good service at one time, but ATT must have needed to provide pay increases to its upper management so you cut corners and provide crappy boxes, crappy customer support and of course, we cannot forget you outsource everything to other countries.
I have been trying to get a static ip address for my Nighthawk LTE Mobile Hotspot Router (330-685-7775 / acct #: 287287665845) for almost 6 weeks. I began by contacting Mark Lorenz who after a week passed me off to Anthony Barile. Anthony passed me off to Robb Vandefifer who has been unable to provide me with the static ip I need. I've followed up with Anthony multiple times and contacted his Regional Director Mark Manriquez multiple times. All this has gotten me nowhere. I have a projected pending that depends on getting this device set up. I'm hoping someone at AT&T can help me get this seemingly routine task completed. Below is the latest email exchange that so far has gotten me nowhere.

Subject: RE: Update,
It has been almost 24 hrs since my last email and I've still not heard anything. Unfortunately, this has been a recurring pattern during my ordeal to get a static ip. I've received little to no help. What should have been a simple task has now taken over six weeks. Is there any way I can get this assigned to someone competent enough to take care of it without me having to check back over and over again. I'm hoping this isn't a normal level of customer service or that it isn't an indirect way of getting rid of me. My next step will have to be returning my device and going to another provider. I have a fiber circuit and 10 dsl lines with AT&T. I've never had this much trouble dealing with AT&T on any other issue.

We apologize for the delay, per my voicemail we thought the issue would be resolved today. We have escalated this issue again today. We need to get the addendum contract to you to get the IP added. Static IP’s are an issue on mobile devices to happen and they open them up for security concerns. We also know that in some cases they are needed. Our team is on this, I know you have heard that these last weeks. Please understand we will resolve this issues. We will continue to escalate this until it is resolved.

HORRIBLE! I would give ATT ZERO stars!. This is the worst of the worst- with illiterate agents from the third world, with insufficient English, with no knowledge of simple things, not to mention their refusal to connect with an agent from US. I have absolutely slow Internet; my request to have a technician were unsuccessful ; I am charged fees, I have no explanation why; I complained written way- months ago- I never got an answer. Payment account info is not stored properly, my name is wrong and so forth! ATT, as Cox have monopoly in the area, where I live and I can't get out. My payment due date is changed all the times, I am forced to change my pass- all the time, I can't get medium intelligent person on the line to talk to! BOYCOTT ATT, IF YOU CAN!
November 1 2018 Called and cancelled wireless home phone. They didn't say anything about contract still in force. I thought it was over. 11/16/2018 get a new phone bill for $127.66. Not only are they charging for contract not ended but they also went up on my internet service from $30.00 to
$50.00. I guess they think everyone has a whole bunch of money. As a senior I can't afford those prices. Did they do anything to help me?.No. I think cusotmer service should tell people if their contract has not expired. I will never recommend Att to anyone. All they did was set up 2 payments for the bill. It is still going to be hard to pay second part of the bill. THANKS FOR NOTHING ATT.
I contacted your “customer service” 800 number, yesterday. The person I spoke to was a woman with a foreign accent, most likely Filipina. I was stationed in the Philippines for over 3 years during my 30 year career in the U.S. Navy. I’m a retired Chief Radioman. I was calling because we did not receive a paper bill last month. She told me she couldn’t access my account because their system was “doing an update”. I couldn’t get any help from her. She told me I would have to call back in 3-4 hours. Is this normal “customer service”. We have had DirecTV service since approximately 1993. II stalled the original system myself. We recently had a tech out that swapped out the LNB and switched our service to SWM because we were having problems with the “Guide” saying “to be announced” on a lot of channels. Before the tech arrive another rep from ATT arrived to try and get us to switch our cell service over to ATT. He said I should call and complain because we are not receiving a discount for being Veteran. I’m a bit upset at ATT. Since DirecTV was purchased by ATT our service has been anything but stellar. Besides not receiving a paper bill last month the programming leaves a lot to be desired. We are considering canceling our service and going with either DISH or another service i.e, Netflix, Hulu, PlayStation View. Etc. We might be interested in switching our cell service however with the poor customer service we’ve received in the past from ATT I doubt that will happen. Customer service seems to be sorely lacking on the part of ATT.
I placed my first call on October 12, 2018 to establish service. I had a installation date set. The technician came out and was unable to install my uverse services because under ground cable needed to be installed. A date was set for this and they did not show on the original date. A week later some one finally came and installed the underground cable. I set up another installation date for November 10th. They arrived and were NOT able to install my service because not enough cable was put down underground. NOW I have to wait until NOV 25 for them to come back out for the 4th time, to put more cable. This is not right, I feel someone should have already came back out to put more cable down so I don't have to keep waiting. I want cable and internet. This was AT&T mistake. I think this should be expedited and done immediately.
I called a week or so ago to try and lower my wireless bill. I was put on a unlimited data plan which is ok. However the next day I got a call from an Indian sounding woman. Who had my correct name and address. She said I could lower my wireless and direct tv bill to 99 dollars a month combined. First I needed to talk to her supervisor to get a promo code. An Indian sounding guy named "Brian"gets on the phone and says in order to get the promo. I had to purchase an Ebay gift card for 300 dollars to prepay 3 months. I could not use a credit card they would only take an Ebay card. He gave me this number to the "billing" department. 888 5882434. He also said I would also get hbo, cinemax and showtime free along with a 100 dollar visa gift card. The whole thing sounded pretty fishy to me and I didnt bite. I would rather change carriers than to run down to a store like Walmart to buy a gift card to activate a promo. I called Direct Tv since it was a combined bill. And the lady seemed to think it was a legit offer. I was transferred to an ATT. Department And the guy told me it was a scam. Anyway either you got hacked or its an inside job. I am concerned about my data. Please let me know how you will respond to this data breach. Actually this was the second time this happened in a month. The first one wanted an Amazon card wih 300 dollars.
there are wires that has dropped from my house and is hanging over my driveway. I have called att on Monday the 12th of November and was told some one would be at my resident between 8am and 8pm on Wednesday the 14th. I informed the person I spoke with that I have grandchildren and needed the problem resolved. I have had alabama power and my current cable company come out and they both said the wires belong to att..I called back to att today and they said someone would call me within a hour and give me an update. well, it has been more than an hour and no call. again the problem need to be corrected so no one will possibly get hurt. please have this problem correct soon as it would be greatly appreciated. my cell # is 205-585-7863 and home # is 205-791-0717. thanking you in advance for help
Customer Service and Billing. I was a long time AT&T customer until August/September 2018. The reason is because I paid off a phone purchase early and my bill WENT UP! I ignored it the first time the bill came out, but after the second bill was even more, I called Customer Service to inquire as to WHY? Naturally, I had the irritation of speaking to someone that had no clue. But could offer me "it's a late charge for the previous bill" (because I was waiting for a corrected bill) to "an increase in taxes" (my area taxes didn't go up). I requested a supervisor. No available supervisor at that time, but was assured someone would contact me. I got tired of waiting and switched providers, and quite frankly, forgot about it. What does AT&T do? They can't call me back but they sure can turn over a $84.81 bill to a collection service! Prior to purchasing a phone, my monthly bill was $55. No one could tell me why the increase and when I quit service, I was only ONE WEEK into a new billing cycle! I chatted online with customer service today and neither Jovan nor Kharmelyn (Supervisor) could offer an explanation for an increase in the bill, but was quick to tell me it was turned over to collections because I didn't pay the bill. AND STILL NO EXPLANATION OFFERED FOR THE INCREASE! And still don't know if it will be taken off my credit report! Pitiful service and not worth the aggravation. But I intend to tell everyone that is online how badly I was treated.
My ATT Home Gateway Modem was acting up. Several keys functions weren't working an just about everything over the wireless network was being dropped regularly. It was difficult to stream anything over the wireless network and my wife who works from home was having a hard time stayhing connected to her job's VPN because of the wireless problems.
I contacted ATT customer service and the technician ran some test remotely and said that my modem needed to be replaced. She indicated that she had created an order for a new modem to be shipped to my house and that it would arrive in two - three business days. A week later, the modem had not arrived. I called AT&T and was told that the order had been cancelled, but no one knew why. No one a AT&T called me, texted me or emailed about the change in the order status, they just simply forgot about me. When I called back, they told me they would get the modem reordered, but the tech was unable to get "their" system to place an order. I was told that the "back office" group would take care of the problem and that I should get the new modem in 2-3 business days. Well of course, AT&T didn't get a new modem ordered and no one from the company called me to let me know that they were having problems with their systems. I called back several more times and every time I experienced the same level of ineptitude. No one at AT&T could place an order for a new modem for my account. After nearly two weeks of this ridiculous treatment, AT&T convinced me that the only way to get me a new modem was to have a technician come to my house. We set up a schedule for AT&T to arrive at my house between 8:30 & 9:30 AM on monday.
When Monday arrived, I waited for them to show. At 9:15, I received a message from AT&T which said that they were sorry they had missed me.
I thinking "what are they talking about", I've been setting here looking at my front door, with my phone in my lap waiting on the AT&T tech. No AT&T came to my house that morning and no one called or texted me either. In the days before my scheduled appointment, I had to confirm the appointment at least two times, yet they still don't show up and then act like it was my fault.
I called AT&T to find out what was going on, and I was given the story that the tech had come by my house and left because I wasn't at home. When I told the AT&T rep, that the tech was out right lying because I had waited for him all morning. The AT&T rep then changed the story to say that the tech had called me and that I didn't answer. That was also a lie. I urged the AT&T rep to look at my and the techs phone records to prove the tech's claim that I didn't answer the call was a lie. The rep gave me an excuse that the tech probably used a "personal" phone and they wouldn't have access to his call log. I again encouraged the rep to look at my call log since my cellular service is with AT&T. Again the rep had an excuse and replied that there wouldn't be a record if I didn't answer. We all know that was another lie as my phone log has a record of all my missed calls. Additionally, why would the rep hang up before my call was picked up by voice mail???? and then not leave a voice mail message.
If the truth be known, I'm sure that tech just didn't get around early enough that day to make my appointment. His/Her approach was to tell dispatch that I wasn't home and essentially blame the customer. AT&T set up another appointment for 12 - 2PM that day. Of course they didn't make that appointment either. Finally a 3rd appointment was arranged and a tech showed up around 5PM. That tech told me that it wasn't necessarily uncommon for techs to lie about missed appointments to their management. It seems to be a well know "secret" within AT&T that techs miss appointments all the time and blame it on taking longer than expected on the previous appointment or just out right not showing and then lying about the reason.
When my equipment and system is working, I like the service. However, when it is having problems, I dread calling AT&T for support because it ruins my entire day and sometimes my entire week. Most (not all but most) AT&T customer support reps don't sound professional or eager to help. It appears that AT&T contracts out lots of the customer support work to companies that are not well monitored by AT&T. I have called customer service before to hear what sounds like a party going on in the back ground with so much noise that I can't even hear the representative. Sometimes, I just hang up and keep calling back until I finally reach someone that sounds professional.
This last experience is making me seriously consider cutting the cable cord. The fact that I have TV and internet together makes it harder to switch between providers. Because there is so much equipment to install and remove, I don't like switching. However, if I go cut the cable cord and just go with internet service, the only thing that I have to change is the modem. Streaming seems like the way of the future and AT&T is aggressively pushing me over that cliff. I am at the point that I am going to purchase a streaming service to see how it goes. If I can live with, then I'm dropping the cable and AT&T and just going with the cheapest provider and changing every time I get lousy customer support.\

My phone line has been down for days. This has happened before. Why don't you do your damn jobs? I have called my congresswoman about this. I am a 100% Disabeled Veteran from injuries in Iraq! I need this phone system to work! Who is another service for my area. I will look into this and change A.S.A.P.!
I have several complaints. The most recent is that while on a Caribbean Cruise I paid $50 for both my phone (850-509-0118) and my wife's phone (850-694-6641) to have voice and text. I received information on how to turn off data, which I followed. My wife's phone was billed $250 for the first 4 days of the trip and then billed some unknown amount for the last 3 (approximately $175). Her data was turned off and when I complained I was told that regardless of what AT&T told me, it was my responsibility to ensure no data made its way to my wife's phone. After the first $250 charge was made and I received no satisfaction from your service person, I checked to ensure I had no contract with AT&T and then I switched to Verizon. I have other AT&T complaints which I will identify later. Then on 9 November I received an email saying I was being charged $277.80 and told to click on "sign in" to see the bill. Of course I could not get to see my bill because my account was closed. I spoke with some person at your 800-331-0500 number who said that $277.80 was the bill and that was final. She also said that I was sent a bill via the post office to my house. That is not the truth either. I have not received a bill, and any reputable organization would not bill someone without a bill...but therein lies the complaint. You took advantage of my permitting you to use paperless billing by posting this charge to my American Express account without providing me any information on what the charges were for. I still have not seen a bill. Although after the bill was posted on Amex, your email said I could sign in to view, but would not allow me to. It said it was sending a verification code which was never received.
Other problems with AT&T are: Insufficient coverage (for example, at the airport when flight was canceled, I could not place a call from the gate area): voice mails would appear days after being left, text messages received out of order.
You have convinced me that I am not safe permitting any AT&T organization to bill me paperless. Therefore at my earliest opportunity I will also leave Directv, which unfortunately I have no complaint with except that they belong to AT&T.
My Mother and I have been AT&T customers for several years; she lives in Arizona and I, in Washington. Before she came to visit me in Spokane for Thanksgiving, her smart phone was stolen from her purse while shopping. She reported the theft - by phone to AT&T, and they told her that they would lock the phone and send her a replacement within the next couple days. It was nearly two weeks before she left on her trip, but the phone never arrived... I told my mother that we would take care of things while she was visiting.
So, yesterday I took my mother to an AT&T store in Spokane. It was early afternoon and we had to wait for someone to help us. Initially there was a young guy who appeared to be training (later, he left to help other people) and a woman whose name tag read "Tina". My mother is older but very sharp and understands what is going on... she was trying to explain the situation and find out her options while I stood by quietly most of the time. I will say up front, Tina was disrespectful and rude to my mother. She said "I've never heard of any AT&T doing that" when we mentioned the replacement phone. Then when my mother leaned in as they brought up the records of the call, she said "Oh, this is all legalese, you wouldn't understand it". She spoke extremely condescendingly and cut her off with a very loud and unkind tone the whole time.
When I had heard enough of this, I asked Tina "What is the principal balance owed on her phone?", because I wanted to end this and go talk privately with my mother about her options. Tina told me the balance, and from that point on, if my mother asked a question or responded in a thoughtful way, Tina would quickly answer, then turn to me and ask if I understood and could I explain it to her later.
Tina's behavior was beyond disrespectful, rolling her eyes and making quips about us to the next customer as we walked out of the store. I wanted to turn and scold her for being so awful, but I saw it as a loosing battle and left.
I have over 5 years of experience in customer service, and if I had ever seen this type of behavior with any of my trainees, they would be given re-training and their first warning, leading to termination. What Tina didn't know is that although my mother is older, she has worked for in a variety of city government positions, customer service, billing and with computers, and though she acted oblivious, she was very hurt and embarrassed by this treatment.
I am recommending to her that she should cut all ties with AT&T at this point... as I will be doing.
I called to have a jack installed for our AT&T internet and Direct TV on the other side of our living room so we can change around our TV. The person told me that they could do that and it would cost $49 plus some taxes and $5.00 for something, I don’t know what. They called it Use Tax Adjustment. Why do I have to pay for Use Tax. So the install was scheduled for the next day between 8 AM and Noon. An installer called at 11:10 AM and said that he would be filling in for the original guy but couldn’t make it until 1:30 or so. I called my husband and told him and he wasn’t happy so he called customer service but couldn’t understand the rep because they didn’t speak understandable English. Meanwhile I got a call back from the installer who said the the appointment that he was on got cancelled so he would be over in about a half an hour. He got here ant told my husband that he was from Direct TV so couldn’t do any with the internet cable and proceeded to drill a hole in the floor for the cable and not install a jack because that would cost more money. He left and that evening I called the Direct TV phone number to explain what happened and she told me that I had to talk to someone at AT&T and transferred me. Talked with a very nice lady who understood and wanted to reverse the charge and start all over but couldn’t do anything because she was from AT&T and the charge was from Direct TV. I needed to call Direct TV and explain to them. Ugh!!! Soooo, I called Direct TV and explained again and she told me that as far as they were concerned the job was completed so she couldn’t reverse the charge. I told her that it wasn’t done they way that I requested, but she could care less and pretty much told me “too bad so sad”, I hung up!!!
Att technician will not return my call. His number is 314 740 9896. I am going to change to another provider unless I get action! Dave Scrivner St. Louis mo
I have a home in Cleveland TN and was considering changing my service there to AT&T for television and internet. When I came to my cabin 50 miles away and turned on my TV which is provided by Dish, I saw where there was a blackout by AT&T. It seems like the general public gets hijacked by big companies like AT&T on a daily basis. Of course when you have the controls, I suppose that gives you the right, Needless to say, I will not be switching to AT&T after this. Some things are just wrong! It is a shame that greed always controls companies decisions. This is the polite way of telling you what jerks you are.
AT THE END OF 2017 I WAS CALLED AND TOLD IF I DID NOT LET AT&T INSTALL FIBER SERVICE TO MY BUSINESS (JOHNSON LASER WORKS @ 3406 HWY. 2 BONIFAY, FLORIDA) MY BILL WAS GOING TO GO WAY UP. I AGREED TO LET THEM INSTALL FIBER OPTIC SERVICE TO MY BUSINESS. IN MARCH 2018 THEY INSTALLED THE FIBER AND TERMINATED IT IN MY OFFICE, AND FIVE (5) MONTHS AGO I RECEIVED THE EQUIPMENT TO FINISH THE CONNECT TO MY EQUIPTMENT IN MY OFFICE. FIVE WEEKS AGO TOMORROW A TECHNICIAN CAME HERE AND AFTER ABOUT 2 HOURS SHE STATED SHE WOULD HAVE TO HAVE HELP INSTALLING THE EQUIPTMENT.
SHE SAID SHE WOULD RETURN AND HAVE SOMEONE TO HELP HER. SHE LEFT AND I HAVE NOT SEEN ANYONE SINCE THEN.

I called a month ago to get my mother's phone moved to her room at assisted living in newnan georgia. Her number is 770 area code. I was told that she would have to get a new number because that was a different area code. I told them that the phone 10 feet from her room was a 770 number. The very rude man just read me a phone number. I said what is this for and he said call it if you have a problem. He was very rude and short with info. I called the number and they said I couldn't keep the number and tried to sell me a cellphone. I told them to forget it. I did some checking on cellphones from my Verizon plan and was about to get one but decided to call AT&T again. The very nice and polite gentleman said no problem. My mother now has a phone with the same number she has had for over 60 years. If any supervisor had heard the conversation with the first man he would be looking for a job.I wish I had the second man's name. He was very nice. The first one needs to be fired.
Very disappointed Vendor "Enjoy Dallas" represented AT&T at State of Texas, promised me a great promotion deal if I switched carriers I would receive a $250.00 gift card that could be used to pay towards my balance on TMoible or anything I wish to buy with it, so I left Tmobile with the promise I would receive promotional item, only to find out by the Local AT&T store that promotion was only for bundle accounts, then to find out "Enjoy Dallas" they only deliver the phone to AT&T new customer on your behalf per rep at AT&T store, "Enjoy Dallas" falsified information, if I would have known I would nNOT have moved to AT&T and now I am stuck with an IPhone 8 from Tmobile. I would have waited to switch over, as AT&T is a much better carrier but again disappointed with the false information supplied. I have attached a copy of my receipt showing new purchase at State Fair of Texas that lists that companies phone number.
We continue to have limited phone service for the last 2 years. We had to contact corporate offices last year because of this same issue.
We live at
155 CampbuckTom road
Rockwood Tn 37854
We have had limited phone service for 2 weeks
And NO PHONE SEEVICE for the last 2 days.

On August 24th 2018 my wife and I derided to porches two new I phones and switch carriers from Verizon wireless to AT&T wireless since we already had AT&T Uvers and were told AT&T wireless had better service here in Florida. Well since the first day we have had the plan we have nothing but issues with drop calls inside and out side of our house that is located in Saint Johns Florida Zip Code 32259. I have spent hours of my time trying to resole the drop call issues by calling And talking to people that have I believe have tried to resole the issue. I have been to two different stores Best Buy and AT&T store and they admitted the service is bad in the location I live at. The AT&T store even new the area before I told him the Zip Code. What I cant understand is how is it that when I was offered the phone service at Costco no one advice me of bad service in that area. I would have stayed with Verizon instead of switching to AT&T. All of your dealers regardless of what store should inform the costumer of bad connection in areas they know the service will not work. In talking with your loyalty rep she told me their was nothing she could do for me since the phones need to be payed off to cancel my service. If you cant help me with the issue I should not have to pay for something I cant use. Please let me know how we can resolve this problem.
This compliant involves a att service truck in down town Mansfield Texas 76063. At 4:45pm on 10/22/18 I was walking in a designated cross walk with the proper arrows and was nearly hit by the service truck.
White Male drive with facial hair.
White Ford Pickup
I was half way across the street and clearly in the cross walk area with the proper arrows. Drive looked directly at me and did not even try to swerve or break. If I had not jumped sideways he would have run me over.
This could have been a deadly situation.

I have been trying to have my 95-year-old mother's landline transferred to an assisted living facility. I called a week in advance to request the service for Monday, Oct. 15th, then waited all that day for the phone to be connected, but absolutely NOTHING WAS DONE.
So, I called the next day and was told a new order had to be placed and that we would have to wait THREE MORE DAYS until Thursday, Oct. 18th. Once again, the day has come and gone, but NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE. The phone is not connected to my mother's new address, and I really have to wonder if a Transfer Order means anything at all.
This has caused enormous inconvenience to me and my elderly mother, who has not been able to move into her room as she cannot be left without access to a phone. If I could give AT&T negative stars I would do so. This is absolutely the worst experience I have ever had with a corporation--and it still isn't over...
Agents in the chats and on the phone are clueless! only one agent was able to track the package and told me that it was on the way. but after two weeks of no confirmation text saying they got the iPhone i think he was lying. besides, no other agent was able to actually track or give me any information about the trade in iphone lost in the mail.
I send the Iphone back on 9/24/18 I upgraded using the Next program like I do every year. and with the new phone i got the printed shipping label to send the old Iphone back. I lost the tracking number and At&T who printed /issued the label claims that they cant track the package without that number. I went to USPS and they told me that some other Currier Like Fedex usually pick up those packages so they can not help me either!
I do have the IMEI number 359405081036657 and the serial number G6VVLJ56JCL9 OFTHE IPHONE X that is currently "lost"
if At&t charges me for the Iphone I will call the police and report it stolen because If I end up paying for it i want it back. I will switch my 3 iphones to Verizon.
I will also report the IMEI on the IMEIproinfo.com as stolen.
I have gotten 3 phones in 2 months, same phone( iphoneX )and the 3rd phone is not doing what they said/promised me
it would do and they will not allow me to do my upgrade with a phone that works, I just do not think that it is fair that I have purchased a $1000 cell phone that I am unable to use it for what I bought it to do and At&t refuses to help me in any kind of way saying it is not their problem take the phone to Apple? it is not defective, it is not doing what they claimed it would do in the store, and if they would have told me that in the store then I would have chose a different upgrade option, I have been with AT&T for about 7 or more years and never had a problem until now I had to go through so many people and still got nothing solved and they were so rude and continued to read from what seemed like a script, even started a chat with a supervisor named Miguel in the loyalty department and he stopped chatting with me and left the session?? that was unacceptable to me there is no way a customer should be treated this way and I am a very, very, very unhappy customer!!! this is one of my 2 hour long chat sessions I had with Jason and Miguel below....... and the phone calls were no better! ridiculous!!!!!

Agent: I see, it seems the line is covered under warranty until 8/2/2019. To be honest, I'll use the warranty as this is not a damaged made in your own, it seems is more like the device is not holding the usage of the apps.

Customer: And when I return the device how much will I owe ?
Customer: Could you tell me how long I have been with att?
Agent: As are the remaining installments charged in your final bill, you don;t need to return the device. My system shared that the account is active since 2010
Agent: you don't*
Customer: I’m not paying for a phone that I can not use? I am returning it and just go with the other company?
Customer: Why would I have to pay for a phone I am returning to you?
Agent: As I shared with you the buyers remorse option works on the first 14 days. If you cancel the account you receive the remaining installments charged on your final bill and you can keep the device as you receive the charge for the remaining installments.
Customer: I understand that but within 2 months I’ve had to return 2 of the phones why would you guy not take this phone back due to it took me 1 months to get one that would even start working somewhat?? As being a loyal long customer?
Customer: I’ve never had so much trouble with getting a cell phone that worked before this is the 1st time and this is making me miserable!!
Agent: I'm just giving you the information of the processes, what you can do in that case is get the remaining installments charged and go to ATT store if they buy back the phone.
Customer: Regardless I’m not paying for a phone I’m unable to use?
Customer: So how do I go about returning the phone?
Customer: I will pay for early termination or whatever but not for a phone that I can not even use for what I bought it for?
Agent: Let me explain this better
Customer: I understand what your saying
Agent: You can return it if you want, however as you're paying the remaining installments of the phone to cancel the account. The phone will belong to you
Customer: I’m not paying for a phone that I can not use??
Agent: I mean, you can return it, however I'm not sure if they will send it back to you
Customer: Why would I pay for a phone that is no use to me?
Customer: So as me being a loyal customer you guys will not allow me to return this phone for a phone I could use?
Agent: Because is a legal commitment for the device, and the system will generate that charge, if you want as the device is not working, you can replace it with the warranty
Customer: I’ve had 5 lines at one!
Customer: Apple said that I had to return it you guys and then they would replace it?
Agent: I'm giving you the proper info regarding the process, the warranty is managed by the manufacturer
Customer: Can you see in the notes where I got the run around with this phone? I’ve had 3 that will not work and every one keeps sending me to someone else?
Customer: For 2 months!
Customer: Could I chat with a manager I understand the procedure but I can’t help that everybody is giving me the runs around with the phones!
Agent: I'm really sorry you went into this for a long time, however the ones that can replace the device under warranty is Apple Care.
Agent: One moment please.
Customer: Thank you
Agent: You're welcome. I'm discussing with my manager and as we manage the same tools and the same information, the option for you to get a replacement is with Apple Care
Customer: I understand that I am saying that everyone at the att Corp store assured me that this 3rd phone would work and it doesn’t do what they said it would do and I think I should get my upgrade option back to replace this phone
Customer: Because they said with no doubt hopefully this one would work!
Agent: As the line is advanced on installment's the system won't be able to apply a new upgrade on that, I completely understand your point, and makes sens you are frustrated as you thought it would work, to be honest, the best option for you is to contact Apple care and replacer it.
Customer: They told me I would have to contact you guys for an override on the upgrade option to replace it?
Customer: This is what I mean this is why it is past my 14 days!
Customer: So now I am stuck with a phone I have to pay for that I can not use it for what I bought it for?
Agent: I was working with my support team and they told me the same, it must to be applied for Apple Care, they replace the device having the same installments.
Customer: I have been to Apple 3 times they told me that you guys would have to take the phone back for me to upgrade?
Customer: So if I am stuck in the middle what do I do ?
Customer: I’m really frustrated at this point I just need someone to over ride my upgrade option so I can get a phone for what I need it for ... please
Customer: They did an override for me to get the second unworkable phone!
Customer: This shouldn’t have to be this hard!
Agent: I would love to do it Tammie, believe me I would love to do it from here, but the system doesn't allow me to override the installments as are advanced on the 3rd payment, I'm just giving you the information of the procedures to replace the device.
Customer: They did it on the second phone
Agent: May I know when did you get an override?
Customer: Which did not work either!
Agent: I understand.
Customer: On the second iphoneX I got all this witih 1 months and the still does not work
Agent: Let me check the notes again.
Customer: For what I need it for after they said it would!
Agent: Let me check the notes
Agent: One moment please.
Agent: Could you please give me the confirmation number of the override?
Customer: They did it the store I have no idea what it was???
Agent: From here I need all the confirmation of the processes, if you got that override at the store I recommend you to go to the store to get the process they did before
Customer: It was when we did the second phone because once again they sent me to apple and apple sent me back to the store!
Customer: They were on the phone with you guys?!
Customer: Why can you not see that information in the notes as well?
Customer: It’s only been 2 mo this?
Customer: 2 months!
Agent: Let me double check
Customer: Is there a manager available I really need to get this resolved ASAP and I’m sick of the run around?
Agent: As I shared with you, my manager will give you the same info as they manage the same tools
Customer: Ok well I need to chat with someone that will help me resolve my problem
Agent: One moment please.
Agent: I'm discussing whit manager about your concern.
Agent: My manager is working with other case, please bear in the chat
Agent: Thank you.
Agent: Please give me a few minutes while I look into this.
Agent: Thank you.
Customer: Do you know if too will be an all day event as well?
Agent: My manager is preparing the system to take your concern now, please bear with me.
Agent: Thank you.
Agent: Just to recap, you chatted to override the installments of the device that is not working, I've shared the options to replace the device with the warranty with Apple Care and the amount to pay off the phone to cancel the account, now my manager will take your concern.
Customer: Thank uou
Agent: Good afternoon. I'm Miguel manager on the floor. I can see you were transferred because you want to have the installments removed, due to is not working. Am I right?
Customer: Yea or my upgrade option back
Agent: Well, this case is a warranty. You have to go to Apple and change the device. Your equipment has a warranty covered by the manufacturer.
Customer: The phone is not defective the 1st phone was saying it was stolen or something that I received from a corporate store, the 2nd would not charge and now the 3rd one is not downloading my apps correctly or how I need them to, so I went or Apple because the Corp store said to and Apple said to bring it to you guys and now I’m getting the same from you guys? I don’t understand why can not send this phone back and get my upgrade option back because I’ve been with you guys for a long time and I’ve never had an issue like this concerning getting a working phone?
Customer: Now I have to pay for a phone that I’m unable to use?
Customer: That’s not right and it’s not my fault that I’ve gone through 3 phones and none of them were working properly and it’s only been 2 months with 2 phones!
Customer: 3 phones
Agent: No worries, we help customers. When you want to return a device you have 14 days Buyer's Remorse. If you are out of that period, the Apple warranty is going to cover.
Agent: In this case you will be cover by Apple. All Apple devices have warranty.
Customer: But they are sending me to you guys they will not upgrade or exchange my phone until you guys take this phone back!?
Customer: So now what am I to do to get a phone that works the way the store PROMISED would work?
Agent: Are you sure you went to Apple? They always help you with that. That's the Apple warranty.
Customer: Yes 3 tmea
Agent: Please go there, and talk to a manager. Your device is an Apple, it has warranty directly with Apple.
Customer: Are you guys serious?
Agent: Sure. And we work with serious device providers.
Agent: They have warranty.
Customer: Why can you guy not give me my upgrade option back and take the defective phones that I am getting from your store?
Agent: Because the have a manufacturer warranty. That's the way we work with our device providers.
Customer: I live 45 mins away from the Apple store and i have been the 3 times this is horrible and I don’t understand if I got the phone from you guys why can I not return it to you?
Customer: There is no problem with the device other than it not downloading the apps I need for work like the att store said they would??
Agent: The first 14 days, is the Buyer's Remorse period. After that you are covered with manufacturer warranty. Apple will cover the warranty.
Customer: So what about the 2nd phone? I returned it to the store and they gave me the 2rd one that is not working like they said it would?
Customer: 3 phones in 2 months , really?
Customer: This is ridiculous how I have been a loyal customer and unable for you guys to fix this problem!
Agent: I see your point. However, our devices are covered by the manufacturer warranty. That's the way to do it.
Customer: Ok that’s fine I don’t have time to continually go to the Apple store that is over 40 miles away from me?
Customer: All I need is a phone to do what I need it to do
Agent: I see your point. However your device has Apple warranty. That's the way to do it.
Customer: Ok but I’ve been there for them to tell me that you guys ha e to take the phone back because it’s still in working condition!??
Customer: I’m still stuck in the middle when I know you guys can do the upgrade over ride like on the 2nd device o had that was defective
Agent: We only take devices back on the 14 days Buyer's Remorse period. After that the manufacturer warranty will apply. Your device is Apple, it has Apple warranty.
Customer: So why is so that you guys promised me this one would work and that is not happened yet
Customer: I understand that but this is Phone #3
Customer: No 1 or even 2
Customer: 3 in 2 months! I could’ve kept my old phone and been fine but I was talked into an upgrade/ cordless charger and a faceplate!!
Agent: We promise our devices work, if they have some issue, it will be covered by the 14 day Buyer's Remorse period. After that period it will be covered by the manufacturer warranty. Your device is Apple, it is covered by the Apple warranty.
Customer: Ok got that part but what am I to do when they say they can’t do anything about a promise that was made by att that the phone would work the way I needed it to and it doesn’t?
Customer: The second phone was after 14 days??
Agent: If your device has any issue; they will cover that.
Customer: This is all to much! I just need you guys to tell me how to return. The phone because I’m not paying a phone I can’t use and how to get out of this contract with you guys so maybe I can get help with people who car and are loyal to loyal customers
Customer: The devise is not defective it is not allowing the apps to download!
Customer: The ones I need to work like the store said they would!
Agent: You can only return the device in the Buyer's Remorse period 14 days. Now it is about warranty, it will be covered by Apple.
Customer: I did that!
Customer: And the only reason it has been this long is because att and Apple are sending back forth!
Agent: Actually. You can return the device only in the 14 day's buyer's remorse period.
Agent: With us you can return the equipment in the Buyer's Remorse period.
Agent: After that it will be manufacturer warranty.
Customer: So should have 28 day emotes period between the 3 phones or morw
Agent: It is only 14 days.
Customer: Per phone!
Agent: Per the first one.
Customer: It’s not my fault that I am getting the phone from the store!
Customer: Corp store!
Agent: After that will be manufacturer warranty.
Agent: All our phones have manufacturer warranty.
Customer: Well if you the manger I need for you to fix this issue or get me to someone who can
Customer: Thank you
Agent: Only Apple can.
Customer: Well Apple said to return to you guys been there did that I’m not dealing with this any longer
Agent: You can only return it in the 14 days Buyer's Remorse period.
Agent: Now is Apple warranty.
Customer: Please get me to someone who can help me solve this issue it has been 2 months and I am not able to pay for a phone that is useless to me I should get what I pay foe’n
Agent: It will be Apple.
Customer: Ok let please speak with someone who can help me within att
Agent: Only Apple can.
Customer: No way I should have to have had 3 phone and non of them work no way’n
Customer: No I received the phone from att so I need to speak with someone there!
Customer: As per Apple!
Agent: I'm sorry for reading that. However it is manufacturer warranty. You have to talk to Apple.
Customer: Ok I need to speak with someone over you if you don’t mind
Customer: Thank you
Customer: There is no way anyone paying for a $1000 Phone and it doesn’t work like att said it would..
Customer: But you still try and make me take the phone!
Agent: I'm the manager on the floor. I'm the one to take this chats. There is no way to transfer this chat.
Customer: Please let me speak with someone who can help me
Agent: Only Apple can help you.
Customer: I know there is someone over you and I would like to speak with them
Customer: Thank you
Agent: I'm the manager to take this chats.
Customer: I need to get this fixed and I’m not going to be going back and forth I’ve did it for 1 months
Customer: Ok who do you report to’
Customer: I would like to speak with rhem
Agent: I'm sorry. It has to be done by Apple.
Customer: Well Apple said you guys
Agent: This is manufacturers warranty.
Customer: Not if the phone is not defective it’s an att issue because you guys said that the phone would do what I needed it to
Customer: And continue to give me same phone that doesn’t work like you said it wouls
Agent: I would love to tell you we can cover that warranty. However it is Apple the one to cover the warranty.
Customer: The devise is not defective as per Apple you guy sold me a dream that does not work like you said it would!
Customer: This is not a simple issue of a couple of hundred bucks we talking $1000 for a phone that doesn’t do what you promised me it would do!
Customer: Please let me speak with someone that can help me
Customer: I need to get this taken care of before 3 or 4 months come and it will definitely be too late
Agent: Then, if the device have no issues, why Apple gave you instructions about having installments remove by At&t? And have it returned? So your telling me, the device is in perfect conditions. Aren't you?
Customer: Yea the devise works it is not downloading my application that I need for work like my other iPhone did!! Apple said that you guys sold me a phone 3 times that you knew wouldn’t do that!! Not not the 10’
Customer: But you still sold it to me 3 ties!
Customer: Not 1 or 2 but 3 times!!
Customer: So how is that not you guys problem!????
Customer: Why is it so hard to take the phone back and replace it with something that will!!!!!!
Customer: Would you like if this were you with this problem for 2 months!
Customer: I’ve never had an issue like this with att!! Until NOW!
Agent: In this case, since the device is working properly; it is about the sales accessory. We take that escalation directly at the At&t store. With the store manager.
Customer: Paying for a phone is no problem I have been doing it for almost 10 years with out a problem
Customer: I don’t care I need the problem dealt with or I need to send the phone back and go somewhere else because I don’t want to pay for something I can not use?
I have been attempting to cancel my DIRECTV service for many weeks. I have been promised a call back from a manager that never happened. I was promised emails and instructions to return equipment three times, that never happened. I finally found out I had an option to return equipment to a UPS store and when we got there they didn’t have our equipment listed so here I am on hold with your offices. I am being pushed around from departments because you can’t locate the equipment I clearly have. Meanwhile, because I moved you are charging me a disconnect fee – despite all the hassles and broken promises you fail to keep.
I expect more from companies in delivery of service and I am sorely disappointed in AT&T and DIRECTV. This is not what I expect from a company. At this time we have been customers of yours about two years, however, prior to that we were DIRECTV customers for about 18 years. I would proudly say I had DIRECTV. But no more.
The essence of good service to me is communication and promise keeping. Neither of which you provided. You failed on every bit of this. At this time, I still have equipment I can’t return, because you show we don’t have those pieces. I am the first person to write a note for good service. I should also be sure to share when things god badly. Feedback is a gift. You’re welcome.
PS I am still on the phone, after 35 minutes. I still have no shipping labels and you have still broken promises. Funny, you somehow got me a bill – which I deserve to be waived – yet you cannot send one simple shipping label timely or appropriately.
Purchased a home in Jonas Ridge NC (6266 Sunny Dr, Jonas Ridge, NC 28657 that had existing AT&T DSL service as does the entire neighborhood since they are the only service supplier for internet and phone. There is no cell coverage in the area due to lack of towers and shape of the mountains. I have contacted customer service multiple times and gotten varied responses but primarily there is no service at the location. Now how can that be when the prior owner had service and my neighbors have AT&T services. Neighbors have called and are told there is no plan to discontinue coverage. We have been made aware from others that once a customer cancels coverage for such as a house sale service is denied to the purchaser. So basically they are shutting down service one at a time. Since AT&T is the "only" provider this is inconceivable and highly unethical. We have no access to 911 services so this is putting people in potential life and death situations. Fire and EMS is no good if you can't contact them. It appears that the refusal to supply at least a basic line style phone is a FCC violation and a huge public relations issue for AT&T. I have contacted the local board of commissioners for Burke County and state Senator Blackwell and none of them were aware of this issue and are highly concerned. Mr. Blackwells office has contacted the AT&T lobbyist and they said they were unaware of this situation also. I just can't believe AT&T would do this to a community that has no other viable options for at least basic phone service to reach 911 services. My wife is kidney transplant patient and I have 3 hear stents. This is not a laughing matter as one of the costumer services reps thought and actually laughed at me. I hope hope AT&T will reconsider their stance on this life threatening issue.
My husband was deceived into buying a Buy-1-get-1-Free iPhone deal from a customer rep with At&T over the phone. The representative did not inform him that he would need to buy an extra phone line for the deal. My husband asked if this deal would work for his current line (to replace his iPhone) and for his wife's line (to replace her old phone with). The sale's lady said it would work and failed to say she made a sale by adding an extra phone line onto my husband's account. When the phones arrived via mail, he took them to an AT&T store to activate them. That is where he was told that an extra phone line was being charged to my husband's account (In other words...you pay for an extra phone line you don't need).
To add injury to insult, the At&T store manager refused to send the phones back to where they came from. The store manager said that the phones need to be sent back via mail.
So my husband has been on the phone for six days now being tossed around from department to department to At&T customer reps. Each time he calls, he explains the issue all over again, then the At&T customer rep admits he/she can't help or he's reached the wrong dept., and connects him to another phone number.
All he wants is to send these phones back before it's too late and he is charged for another phone line he never asked for. And he is left without a new working phone. He said he is getting ready to leave AT&T for another phone provider. We have used At&T for many years but customer service is equivalent to dealing with government agencies: untrained and clueless and uncaring. If one is lucky you find one smart rep out of a bunch.
Customer service is HORRIBLE AND COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME.. Get people who not only can speak, but understand ENGLISH! Was on the phone 1st time 38 mins..nothing resolved, second time 27 mins. All I'm trying to do is FIND OUT TRACKING OF RECIVIER BEING SHIPPED..sounds pretty simply, IT WAS ANYTHING BUT NEVER DID GET AN ANSWER!!. READY TO CANCEL AND GO WITH DIFFERENT company..dish, xfinty..we have had direct tv since 2002 and pay 163.00 a month and you can't even track down a reciever,.!!!!
Att cheated me out of 60.90 for taxes paid on an upgrade phone I never received.and the free phone I never received.the phones were sent to Arizona instead of aekansas.becayse your staff doesn't know it's abbrevatiobs.i have talked to 13 or 14 people nobody has resolved this.the worst experience of my life.the last person jose wanted my bank acct. Number and ss number.501 424 9091
Have feedback for AT&T?
Thanks for your feedback!
Sorry. Please try again later!
