We needed to move our mother to a nursing home and after talking with a man from India for an hour and a half it was all set up. The day before the move, I called and after another hour and a half with another person from India, I was told they would be there before 6 pm. After 5:30 came and still no one. I called and after I got another person from India who after 30 minutes finally contected me to the install dept where I got an AMERICAN who said I was not even on the books. REALLY? Totally angry...

I was going to change my phone and internet service to AT&T when I changed to DirectTV. I was told I would have the same phone number and it was not the same. I immediately cancelled and received an e-mail that it was cancelled. A modem had been sent to me already and I returned it with the form inside cancelled. It was received and verified as so with AT&T. I have called numerous times and they continue to send me bill, collection notices, and more bills. The last AT&T person on February 2nd said this was handled. Now I get another collection notice. I will call ponce more and then send all copies to the FCC, Consumer Relations, and the Attorney General of Texas.

I have been getting a statement for about two years for phone number 260 824 8071 acct 2113697 with a 5 cent credit on it. I have called every phone number on your statement ...everyone the people I talk to gave me. Been transferred only God knows how many times! I have written a letter to your company. I just want you to KEEP the 5 cents!!! I worked in Healthcare for 25 years ....we had a policy ...small balance/small credit balance policy we wrote off balances like this. PLEASE do this to this account. Working in the billing department of a hospital I know how costly statements are and postage....multiply that by (2) two YEARS ....DO YOU GET THE PICTURE? I am tired of these statements. Because of them we cancelled our landline and we have had it forever. Get your act together. I really would like an answer to this email...and by the way I have been told by several of your people they took care of it and we would not get anymore statements.....they were wrong.

For over 3 years and through 3 different accounts I've had nothing but problems with overcharges and phantom items billed to me to the tune of almost $2500 from 23 events. No joke.
It start with my original account which was a landline phone and DSL service. When I moved into a new apartment I hooked up my phone and there was a dial tone. I called ATT to have this turned off and establish new service. Gave them all my info and since it wasn't too far from my last place and only a few days I was able to keep my last phone number. A installation date was set two days later and the line disconnected a few hours later.

When the install technician never showed up I called, from a mobile phone, to find out why and found out that they wouldn't install new service until the outstanding bill, left by the previous occupant by the way, to which they pretty much accused me of trying to defraud them, was paid. After a day of speaking with customer service reps and managers pointing out the difference in account info and that I had service at a different location for all the time this other phone service was on it was finally resolved. In starting this new service I was to get a special promotion price, free install, modem and a $100 pre-paid credit card. The card was to take 6-8 weeks to receive.

My first bill I was charged $100 for installation. Which after few calls was resolved. The second month I was billed $100 for the modem which took a couple of days to get credited for. Now 10 weeks had gone by and I didn't receive my gift card so I called in about it. After alot of run around even though the offer was still running on their website they decided that they would just credit me $100 to my account. Somehow by this it nullified my promotional package and I was moved into a much higher phone plan and doubled internet charges which they tried to blame me for. This took like 3 days and like 10 calls to finally correct. That was just the start of my nightmare with ATT. Over the 1 1/2 year I had DSL service I was constantly bombarded with overcharges like being double billed for my internet service every 2-3 months or back billed for a higher rate having my service interrupted sometimes.

The last time I called in to work out still yet another overcharge I was sold into getting Uverse promising that it would consolidate alot of things and end these problems. It didn't. For another 2 years I've been charged for equipment I've never received. Installations and repairs that never happened or was needed or even asked for. Charged for equipment that was supposed to be free with promotions. Spontaneous changes to my bundle pricing with no apparent reason. Which have caused suspensions in my service around 12 times or so for days sometimes. All which is due to no fault on my part but which I've had to pay for. They don't pro-rate when they suspend service. You continue to pay until re-establish or discontinue. When I asked a billing rep to be reimbursed for all this accumulated time I was told there was nothing they could do that just being credited back the overcharges should be enough.

I plan to log a complaint with the Public Utilities Commission now. This is utter BS to me.

My neighbor locked the SIM card on her phone and they would not unlock it. They wanted to send verification to her email account. The lady doesn't even own a computer. Had to take her to the at&t store but they would not except her ID card. After trying to put me on the account so that I could unlock it some 45 minutes later, it wad finally fixed. Do they not understand that seniors don't understand computers?

On 1/2/2015 my wireless was terminated with at&t. As of 2/14/2015 at&t is still auto debiting my account. The last amount was to be between $7 to $8 in a bill sent to me per two of there customer service representive. The auto debit of $31.05 on 1/14 was ok. HOWEVER the $73.38 was taken 2/14 out of my account and has not been refunded. My contract expired 4+ years ago. so there was no penalty. Services was for 12/27/2014 to 1/2/2015. the bill says used 34min INTERNATIONAL in the US and 4 texts INTERNATIONAL in the US. I have never called outside the US. The texts were not pictures so why the $73.38???? I have spoken to about six customer service reps. Two of them has transfer me to consumer cellular my new carrier. I have become so annoyed until it hurt to think about. I am tired and don't to want to think of it. I have permitted at&t to take minute and money before.

Consistently use bait and switch tactics with promotions! Very poor customer service! Rude customer service reps! TV service is the worse I've ever experienced! I have wasted countless hours on the phone resolving issues with AT&T. My advice is to select a different carrier for your phone, TV, and internet services. Hate this organization! They are a nightmare!

AT&T will get as much money they can get when you cancel your account with them. they will have all the excuses in the world why they have added $200, $500 from your account. Believe me they are so good that they will not hear your complaint regarding your account. Tried to fight it but just brought aggravation and a headache. It is not win battle from them. A big company is prepared for everything that they make sure they can get as much money from the customers. In addition, their customer service is the worst service. Now I am glad I left AT&T and will tell all my friends and families t get away from that company! Now I am stuck to be paying $581.90. The only thing to resolve the problem is to pay it in full and if not it will be forwarded to collection agency.

Att Sucks (Out Loud). Thanks for robbing me on the long distance charges, since we just came back, Piss on you! I am disabled, No income,except my wifes. Just had shoulder replaced, I hope you BURN!

I signed up for paperless billing and never received information on the $10 reward that i should have received. I called customer service to check on it and it turned into a 42 minute call with 8 transfers to different departments. How difficult is it to let your customer know that their $10 reward card will be send or credit to their account will be applied. This was a waste of my time and energy, i am so disappointed with the way ATT&T handle their complaints. No where on their web site does it offer you to send a complaint in, better yet just to talk to a customer service rep is almost impossible. It took me 5 minutes and several clicks before i could even find the number. I have been with AT&T for 10 years and expect more from them. Customer service is obviously not a priority!

I was out of town and returned to find my ATT modem and internet account not working. Called into ATT and they told me I needed a new modem. I purchased an ATT compatible modem from Radio Shack for $109.36. I tried to install it to no avail so called into ATT. An agent tried to helpe me install it and finally told me to get an agent with more expertise I would have to pay $50 and $15 per month to get support for it. I then went to ATT store and bought an ATT modem. I tried to install alone but called in and an agent helped me get it installed and onto the internet. I tried to log on again and was not successful but a not to contact ATT came up. I could not call them until 7 AM the next day (today) and an agent said there was a block on my account - that dept did not open until 8 AM. I was finally told my account was past due but I had paid $77.14 on 10/;5/12 at but they had no record. I paid another $77.14 today to get it back on. when I got on the internet to pay my cell phone and other bills I found that I paid $77.21 on the 15th also.....ATT HAD CREDITED IT TO MY CELL PHONE BILL OF $154.35!!! I had spoken to a chick in the Phillapines the second time. My cell phone is not due until the 23rd!!!!! I spent over 8 hours because of ATTs error and received no compensation or apology. Why do we put up with such treatment?

I started New-Service with AT&T and ordered Samsung Galaxy S3 Refurbished device. I found some technical problem in the device and went to couple of AT&T Stores to find the resolution. I was told like you can refund or exchange this device since it's under 14-days.

I called Premier Support since I bought this device online (under premier). After several conversation with them, they were ready to exchange the device and asked me to pay Full Amount for new device and as soon as I will send back the existing device they will credit back the difference amount. I follow the instruction of Premier support executive, made the full payment & returned the existing device.

I tracked the device using the tracking number given to me and called AT&T again when I saw that the device has been reached. I asked for the difference amount and asked me to wait for 48 hours. I have been calling them continuously since then but not resolution. Now I am in 2 years contract with them and also paid amount of both devices.

Please assist.

I called to get my e-mail unlocked...after several persons explaining I was sent a few text numbers, could not get any to work. I was told to go to the ATT store and they would unlock it....take a couple of ID's. I did that and the young lady who waited on us tried but could not unlock it either.....I am being mailed an ID...this is crazy since you have the account and more. I have tried 3 ID's and the security questions and all are wrong ....I am upset as it has been several days and now I have to wait longer for the mail....if this does not fix the problem we will be looking into another service....
We are here 5 months and every time we come back to our home I have some kind of problem with ATT. We are bundled and I see no reason for this.
I have been text questions for service and called. That is not necessary,just fix the problem. Don't call or text.
Thank you for your time.
Sondra Wolfe
P.S. If not for the young lady in the ATT store service would be changed as of today....she was very kind...and said she would help when I got the mail ID if I needed her.

I have faced the worst dsl customer service ever, not once but always. When I took dsl service the customer care person assisted me in selecting a plan. She guided me wrong. She told that I will be charged 14.95$ a month as I already have wireless with at&t and If i do not order a modem I will not be in any contract. They told me speed upto 6mbps but provided less than 1.5mbps. I was charged 19.95$ and when I talked to customer care they told me that you need to have a phone connection for 14.95$ price that contradicts the statement of previous customer care person. I am not bothered about 5$ but the speed was so slow that I ended the service after 2 mnths thinking that I am free to leave at&t. After a month they charged me 138.59$ as pending fee with no details. I called customer care. I was on phone for about 2 hrs and they were transferring me here and there and they were so dumb to answer any question. In the end I paid it. Now after 3 months they charged me 80$ again. Am I so free to call them again and again but I called again as I did not want to pay again without knowing what I am paying for. I was on phone again for about 1.30hr and they kept me transferring again and again. They have hired the dumbest people. Then I called after 2 days again and thank god someone told me the reason why I was charged 80$. She said it was early termination fee for internet I used to have 3months back. Wow that was a big surprise to me. I told there was no contract but she said there was. Whom to believe?? The very first customer care person or this one. So I have put the case under investigation. Either they are big cheaters who lie to you to put you in a contract or the customer care representatives are uneducated, dumb people.

My U-verse went out on Dec 23rd 2012, called AT&T tech support on 26th, and had been told that they were not able to figure out the problem. Called again on 31st request ATT either fix it or terminate the service, phone got cut off after 20 min communicated with customer service. I called again and was told they would try to fix it but didn't get the U-verse service to work till this day. Jan. 5th, 2013

Today (December 28) is the thirteenth day I have been waiting for AT&T to "port" my number from Suddenlink or Sprint. I was an AT&T customer for five years and became very dissatisfied with the cost of their service. When I tried to switch on December 15 to Suddenlink, I could not switch because of my alarm system. Suddenlink released my original telephone number on December 16. Since then I have talked to several dozen AT&T representatives.

Two have sent me to bogus numbers, one a health service and one a disconnected number. Almost all of them have sent me to another part of AT&T, which then sends me back to customer service and makes me wait through the recorded list of services. An AT&T technician came to my home, assured me the porting of the number could be done "in a few minutes" and then departed surreptitiously without doing anything or telling me what he had done. I had no telephone service for seven days but then finally got a "temporary" number.

I am supposed to get my original number back on Thursday, December 29. I had good reason to leave AT&T, and if I ever get my original telephone number back, I will leave them again. Incredibly bad service!!!

I called ATT advanced tech support because I thought I was having a Virus problem, and said I should purchase the Advance Tech for $15.00 per month in order for them to help me, I spent over 4 hours with them entering my laptop and cleaning it which I didn't request. When they were through the Virus problem was cleared up, I thought, but my computer was really messed up, fonts were a mess, and numerous items I had such as Bookmarks, Mail, were gone. But the messed up fonts were the worst problem, it felt like it had fraud written all over it. I called them back and spent another hour trying to make some corrections, but they were unable to do anything.

After talking with them being convinced I needed the Advance Tech support contract, etc. I found I needed only to do a restore and when I did everyting was fine. I am now considering dropping ATT, for Cell phone, Internet Service, and land line. If I have to pay $150 to cancel the Advance Tech contract, I will have to do it, but these Techs are not ever going into my computer again. They totally messed it up and I had to fix the problems I had myself, they did nothing but mess up everything. I have been with ATT for ages, but they will not screw up my computer again! This is a total advanced tech support scam!

I March right after getting out of the hospital, I was having issues with my phone. I was in fear of heart attack and being with out a phone. I went to the at&t store to see what they can do, I was told I had to take the phone to the apple store or wait to get phone through the mail. I couldn't wait, mgr said he would see what he could do. I had 2 myths to go before upgrade. He could and explained to someone the importance of a working phone. After all the b.s I went through, he got me an approval for a new phone. NO ONE SAID IT WAS AN UPGRADE NOR A NEW 2 YEAR CONTRACT!!! I call and find out, it was approved for a new upgrade EARLIER than allowed. Then when I call and ask for the Mgr, he was the rudest fuck..... I would have gotten a pay n go phoname had I known this bullshit would have been pulled. I don't work, I am so angry, Better Business B and chamber of Commerce! And I will post this on FB. Disgusting the way I was treated and how this was handled. I will contact my lawyer. Shame on you

Thank You , Sincerely Andrea C. Reynolds

After Hurricane Sandy, ATT claimed my husband was Internationally calling/texting, however he never left the states. ATT would not show us proof of these claims and billed us for over $300 charges. I continued to fight with ATT over our international charges and they kept telling me there was nothing they could do since the system showed us international.

I was not international, I was at home with no power or cell service. We left ATT in Feb due to these charges. They billed us with cancellation fees, entire Feb bill (even though we didnt have them) and international charges. They processed our credit card without our consent. I will never use ATT again. They are trying to gain money back after Hurricane Sandy.. Horrible customer service.

Just wanted to let you know an issue that was going on for 3 month with your company and about your employees who not helped me resolve an issue with. Every time I call and they listen to my problems and promised me everything will be done and no calls backs from each of the previous people who promised to help me and call me back the next day,ather from the mangers and supervises.
I had to windup calling back myself each time with hours of holding on and never getting my situation resolved.
. I spent a total of approx. 100 hours on the telephone in 3 month with promises that were not kept... People always call to complain about service but I must write to tell you that I’m went to the hospital twice because the way of AT&T doesn’t care about the customers
. If you would like to contact me with regard to this whole experience please feel free to contact me. at 848-565-5527
Sincerely,

I ordered a Samsung Galaxy Note phone from one of the representatives of At&t. It occurred to me on 12/19/2012 when I was getting ready to upgrade my phone I realized that the representative ordered the wrong phone that I ordered for my husband (Samsung Galaxy Note). When I wanted to get the situation taking care of At&T could not assist me because the phones was in processing to be shipped.

This ocurrence was not my fault! The Samsung Galaxy Note was for my husband's anniversary gift. In short I will have wait for the wrong phone to come ruining my anniversary gift for my husband. There should be some type compensation for ruining my anniversary!

For being a telecommunicatikons company, AT&T has one of the worst customer service departments I have ever dealt with. First one must hold on the phone for a good 20 minutes before reaching someone to speak with, then it is usually the wrong person or someone who lacks any sensible knowledge of the guestion being asked. When a person finally reaches the right department it takes a good hour to get any order changed. I recently attempted to upgrade my cell phone service. In ther process I discoverred that after being a customer of A T & T Uverse and Wireless Phones, the
wireless phone department showed me living somewhere in Shaumburg and the next time I called I was living In Independence Ohio. I life in Lisle, Illinois. The first time it took over an hour to do the necessary paper work to upgrade my phones to the I phones. Upon completion, I was told I would receive the phones the fallowing day, One week later after I did not receive the phones I phoned again and again waited endlessly to get throujh. When I finally recached the correct person I was told that I was supposed to go to my e-mail to accept the terms. No one told me that on my first call and I don't look at my e-mails regularly. After we finally get that straigtened out I asked the individual how I could make a complaint about the service. She told me I had to go to an AT &T store in Independence, OHio to file the complaint. I told here that made no sense because I lived in Lisle Illinois. She checked your records and they showed I lived in Ohio, I again worked with her to get everything corrected. I then went to an AT & T store to file a complaint and they had no idea what they were supposed to do. They callled AT & T customer service only to get the same run around for about an hour with nothing to show for it. I then fround this on line.

IF AT&T DOES NOT GET YOUR TELECPHONE COMMUNICATION DEPARTMENTS IN ORDER YOU ARE GOING TO LOOSE MANY CUSTOMERS. I ALREADY KNOW OF AT LEAST TWO THAT HAVE LEFT AT&T AND I AM VERY MUCH ON THE VERGE OF DOING THE SAME.

We have been having problems since we moved to our present location. The tv keeps freezing and when trying to record ar watch recorded program says DVr not working. The tv will stop and give list of trouble shooting suggestions. We have called and are just told to reboot.

We have rebooted this junk more times than I can count. It seems that this is happening on the main tv as the others don't have the same problem. We have been told this was impossible. The cost of this service is not low and for what we spend this problem should never exist. It took several months to get our billing straight after we moved also.

Talking to many other AT&T customers this is happening widespread. Please please do something to resolve this issue.

It's about AT&T--of course...the company with THE worst "customer service" in the world. I just spent two hours on the phone with two different techs (escalated up to a level 2), trying to solve a problem with not getting email from a business client that I've routinely received email from--four emails I was expecting didn't even make it to the AT&T server, and I'd already investigated with the client to be sure the problem wasn't on their end. First, AT&T tried to tell me it was my fault: rule #1 in their training manual must say "always try to blame the customer" because I was using the wrong version of Outlook.

Then they wanted to take remote control of my computer to troubleshoot--I refused, not only because the problem isn't on my computer, it's on their server, but also because I don't want them to screw anything up on my computer, which they almost always do. Then I asked for a level 2 tech, who tried the same routine. I then asked if she could check the sender's email address to see if AT&T had somehow blocked it. She said no, that AT&T couldn't block sender addresses....and backed off that claim when I asked how AT&T blocked spam-sender addresses (which they do, but not well at all, witness the 100+ daily spams I'm getting this week).

The coup de grace was when I had to tell HER that sbcglobal.net runs on the Yahoo platform....and this is a tech, let alone a level 2 tech??? I'm now going to drop my last account with AT&T...they don't care a whit about their customers, and never have. Thank God it looks as if their T-Mobile acquisition isn't going to go through, AND that it will cost them a bundle to get out of it....which of course they will pass along to anyone stupid enough to continue to use their "services."

phone broke..called 611 for time eligable for upgrade. They were very understanding and said I could take it in to a local AT&T store and she (missy) would send a note to the affect that we were ok to upgrade early When we arrived at teh EPPs Bridge , Athens, GA AT&T the manager (Amy) said we could not upgrade because we had already upgraded 2 lines in May (not true) My daughter had upgraded her phone with my upgrade 2 years age and when she went back they used my number again (by mistake) then went in to change it (we have the paperwork) Amy said they had a signed contract with 2 lines...Not true! Amy rolled her eyes at me and said well, maybe if you had 5 or 6 lines with AT&T, they might consider it along with other factors but they cant now so after being treated terrible by Amy, we went to the AT&T store where my daughter actually upgraded her phone and they said that it was their fault They called customer service and after 1 hour and 10 minutes they told her...sorry, they could not upgrade my contradct until December 2013. This will be 3 years since my last upgrade. Even thought it was "their" fault and they assumed responsibility..customer service said no. I don't understand... I have been a customer with AT&T for over 12 years and am very dissapointed!

On 11/13/2012 I needed services to swoop phones because of shattered glass at location, AT&T 3329 Oak Lawn Ave., Dallas,TX. I was unable to get the proper assistance and was told to take the phone to an Apple Store. After arriving at the Apple Store I mentioned I had phone insurance from AT&T. I was directed to the 2nd AT&T Store at 1030 North Park Center, Dallas, T 75225. I was given a card to contact AT&T support to issue me a new phone.

On 11/14/2012, I received the 4G phone, however had problems making connections. On 11/15/2012, I returned to the Oak Lawn store to get the 4G phone set-up. I was told I had an hour wait and the store representative (Jeff) made contact from the store phone to the call center to assist me. The person from the call center stated I needed assistance from someone else because it would take longer to get me set-up on my cell after communicating for at least 15 minutes or longer.

I was switched to another gentlemen that was surprised how I was treated in the store, and on the store phone. We were on the phone for at least 45 minutes and I was passed to an Apple advisor by the name of Jerry Pensleywho took my email address and mentioned to contact him when I got home. In the meanwhile, I had requested for a store manager three (3) times and was never assisted. The associate Jeff who made little contact and assistance was extremely rude and kurt. Jeff mentioned if a representative could not help then a manager would intervene. Jeff was the representative and his assistance was extremely poor and a manger was never called. I was on the AT&T store phone for at least an hour while other calls were coming in on AT&T phone service trying to get my phone activated. As I left the store Jeff mentioned did I need any assistance, and was I taken care of.

My answer was "No". Jeff, personality was very nasty and anyone who cannot conduct themselve in an orderly fashion dealing with the public give the establishment AT&T an unreliable name. I have never experienced a problem with AT&T from the many years I have had service. I will not recommend AT&T to anyone and may consider changing services.

Look to hear from you soon.

Hi,

I bought a iPhone off the net 2 years ago and recently went and swapped it for another iPhone, I changed my sim card in the phone to find that my phone had been jail broken, it has reset itself to your network, I searched the Internet to find how to unlock and came across this website www.attiphoneunlocking.com, I done everything the website said to do, I purchased the package I needed to unlock my phone and waited the required amount of time for the email to say it was unlocked, I did not recieve the email, I then contacted the support network from that website to inform them that I had not received the email and why is it taking so long, they replied asking for my order number, I informed them I didn't recieve a order number, they said they can't find the product to unlock without the order number, I then rang up my credit card company to recieve a statement of transactions, on the statement it shows that AT&T has charged the purchase to my credit card, I informed them of this and then asked for a refund, I was then informed that my transaction was denied and if I want my phone unlocked I have to order again, something is not right cause if my transaction was denied then it would not have been charged to my credit card, it has been approved and my phone hasn't been unlocked, I want my phone unlocked as this is my only phone I use for work and it has affected my work life a fair bit, it seems AT&T has robbed me of my purchase, they are rude and not helpful, I would like a full refund of my purchase and my phone unlocked.

Thankyou

I would call and talk to AT&T about this but I was but on hold forever and could never get through. Two weeks ago I had U-Verse internet and cable installed in my apartment. The man who installed the equipment was friendly and very helpful but the way the he set everything up was a disaster. The wires were all tangled together. Every time I try and disconnect a wire everything falls off the shelf because he just left everything in tangles and in a cluster. I would expect him to fully do his job and leave the place looking better than he found it because I had the wires before neat and clean. But what really angered me was the fact that he set all the equipment on TOP of my new BLU-RAY player. And for some reason it is not working. I would think someone who works with electronics would know better than to put that much weight on top of the Blu-Ray player. I am not the person to complain but I am very irritated with such poor judgment he displaced.

Two weeks ago I'm walking down 6th St. when I'm approached by a stranger who asked me if I would like to make $100 real easy. All I had to do was go to the Apple store with him and use my info to help him purchase 5 iPhones. I got in the car with another fellow and he drove to Stonestown Apple Store where I gave my ID and SSN and they purchased the phones.

Then he gave me $100 and drove off. Yesterday I got a bill in the mail for $450 from AT&T. I thought I was just helping them to purchase the phones, in fact it was a fraudulent wireless phone cancellation.

I mistakenly assumed that they would be billed for the service. I called AT&T and immediately cancelled the service and explained to them what happened. Today I'm in the Stockton Apple Store and someone approached me with the same offer.

I saw that he was with a friend of mine who was considering taking him up on the offer. I told him that he would be getting a bill in the mail. So he declined the offer. The conman got irate and started threatening me.

I talked to the store manager and told them what was happening. They said it is legal because the person is willingly giving their info to AT&T. I told him that anyone who comes in trying purchase 5 phones using someone else's ID should immediately be setting off red lights. The person giving the ID should be told that they will be getting a bill in the mail.

Otherwise this is a scam and Apple is in on it, in other words a fraudulent wireless phone cancellation designed to take my money. The ones getting screwed are AT&T, Verizon and the person providing their ID will get a ding on their credit report especially if they don't cancel the service right away.

I want to the at&t store cause i just get a new HTC phone and my phone felt in the water under 10 days this lady name Olivia, Olivier told me that she can give me a new phone this phone cost about $600 but if I give her 300 she will give me a new phone she did the process gave me a new phone i give her 300 I see that she put the money in her bag and give me a receipt that said 0 dollar 3 days later i went back to the store wanted to exchange my phone for a new one cause i was still under the 15 days.

I told the guys that was helping me i just paid 300 for the for 3 days ago he told me i was lying that the phone was replace for free so i would like to know where my 300 goes and why is Mrs. Olivia, Olivier doing fraud on people account to put money on her pocket.

Hello My name is Randy Gray Accounts # 504 393-0832 475 and 504 361-4601 476 My complaint is about a few things. I have been with AT&T for over 15 years. My business was @ 1801 Hancock street Gretna Louisiana 70053 . Well after I been there over5 years, I had to move to 2431 Hudson place NO 70131. I ask back then that can I have the same number 504 361-4601 moved to that location due to advertisement and everything I built around that number. AT&T replied there is no way . you have to have the number 393-0832 . They also offered me that on getting that line they can forward the 361-4601 at no extra cost as log as I stay with AT&T. Well that has been fine since last year when yawl have been making all kinds of changes.

Change 1) Yawl turned that forward line with out my knowing into a contract that will cost me 60.00 per month more . I didn't ask for it nor did I was offered a lower price when they made the changes nor did I know I was accumulating a bill 466.88. to get disconnected.But The answering guy said that I haven't paid since the month of March.

Change 2) If my phone gets disconnected due to payment . Not only you disconnect ,Your advertisement turns my business Number to other business in the area, as a recording. That is Not right I lost a lot of business over that, on the 504 361-4601 as we speak, while I disputing the charges. ( Please call and here what am talking about)

Change 3) the internet service has change also where that is coming from another company out of AT&T called Uverse . That is so crazy. When you call to speak with a manager they never get on the phone . My main concern is please get my old business number 504 361-4601 to tie back into the 393-0832 and if not please stop referring my business number to other business. I beg you please stop. I'm a small company and I will be force to get a lawyer if it hurts me more than what its doing. Please contact me back your feedback, of what can you do for me to keep me moving forward . First thing Waive that 466.86 and combine both of them numbers to 393-0832 please work with me here. I Never seen AT&T go this for to the left before. Thanks for your time .

Sincerely

Randy Gray

wow, the day that commisions were to be reported for sales in January 2013 for the 3rd year in a row they have not decided which comp plan they are to use in order to pay our commisions. They are withholding 80% of the commissions since they have not sinched down the true commission plan.
They really are not concerned with the customer facing teams the work hard to hit their extravagant goals. thier plan increase about 200% across the board.
there should be a law to protect the employee's, Maybe the SEC should check AT&T out for inflating their earnings and cash reserves based on the withholding of our commissions....
Oh Well, maybe next year they will get it right.....wait we have said that for 3 years....

I haven't had service with AT&T since 2010 yet today I received a bill from them. I spoke to six different people and finally hung up after being put on hold again. I have enough bills without getting one from a company that I no longer do business with. Unreal !

40

I recently called the customer support center . The purpose of the call was to have my existing land line phone service and internet service monthly bills combined into one. What I thought would be a simple paperwork transaction. Resulted in my entire account being changed into U-verse service which I never asked for , don't want and cannot afford.

This change in service was not explained to me and I did not authorize. While I do feel that your customer representatives are guilty of deceptive practices. I feel far to many of them are not familiar with the services and current technology. And they simply do a very poor job at explaining this information. And an even worst job at listening.

I realize that I may be locked into some type of obligation as a result of this. However as soon as it is met. I will be choosing another service provider rather than file more complaints about AT&T online.

Hello,

I get over charged on my cell phone bill since I signed contract with att for my wireless phones. Im not going over the limit on my plan but I get over charges for $50 more on my bills. I have contact them every time i get my bill so they can adjusted the correct amount. I'm frustrated with their service specially with their hold time it is insane you wait 30 minutes on the line and someone answers the phone and transfers you to a different person and it continues until it is like an hour or so being on the line. finally you get to the right person and he or she says that the bill amount is correct and then I tell them it is not and they find it that it is actually incorrect and they apologize every time. I never seen a serve like this before. I would be glad to cancel my services when my contract is over. with att.

What kind of business does that?

I am in Rockland Maine for the summer. Our contract with AT&T originated in North Carolina where we live in the winter. I have little complaint about the service in North Carolina but the Rockland area is a totally different story.
I understand that AT&T only has a couple towers in the area, both of which are a fair distance away. However, there are many other towers owned by others in the area. I almost alway have sufficiant signal to make or receive calls. My assumption is that I am picking up a signal from a nearby tower owed by another carrier because my wife was asked last year to eliminate several apps the usage of which through other carriers were being billed to AT&T. Until that time we both had reliable service in the area. That was the beginning of a long series of problems. I now own an I phone 4s and have minimal problems outside the Rockland area, but in or near Rockland I am getting bumped off calls, often unable to be heard when making or receiving calls, and unable to leave a message on phones in the area using the AT&T network.
The long and short of it is my signal strength is nearly always sufficient to not experience these problems which tells me that AT&T is on the cheap and not utilizing the towers of others in the area as they did last year. I resent any company that represents one thing but delivers another and AT&T is definetly guilty of that in delivering less service this year over last.

Feb 2012 I placed an order for dsl and for home phone service. I had told them when i placed order for dsl that I had no phone line and no jacks in my home. They assured me that all i had to do is plug into wall, I thought hey new things ok, yet had no internet service, I put in trouble ticket someone was here next day to connect phone line outside to box. They never buried line, said oops would come here mark it out and they would return to bury line. Internet was up the night the tech came out.

However My phone service isnt. Even after deposit of 100 has cleared. I called customer service, put trouble ticket in,said they gave me said they would sent someone out, it should have been on on the 7th of March.Yet they couldnt get nobody for another until 13th someone was to come out and fix the issue so I have service. Meanwhile called a few times just so they can "test line". I tried the number they gave me and someone answered, so i called At&t to confirm that that was my number on March 11th gave them my social my passcode, confirmed my address. they tried to call number, said when tech came out they would make sure nobody swiped line from my yard since it is still laying there 3 weeks later. Talked to customer service 10 times.

Yesterday on the 13th At&T repair guy called me said he was at my house, ha they gave him some 192 red bud pass or some address not mine mine is 8650 forsythia ln orient ohio. He did show up after gave him correct address, yet order was obviously so jacked in the system that he said I would have to sort it out with at&t, so after dealing with automated service which is bs in itself its a phone company there should be enough lines to speak to someone directly. And who speaks good clean english, it is the USA and being transferred to so many people who claim to be supervisors, and then some guy told me I had no order for service! I am really pissed off, over 2 weeks Ive been waiting for phone service I was told by the 11th person today on 3-14 by a customer advocate she was only told I wanted a premier package what? and she said my number was BS.

This should be simple I have dsl, they ran my jack, they ran line all youd think theyd have to do is send signal and turn on the damn phone. And get my name and address right. OH and come back and bury the phone line so its not out in the yard waiting for some kid to try and shock themself or something. My God I have litterally spoken to and dealt with at least 11 different people, yet nobody is helping and are not understanding, the whole picture I have to explain everytime. Give me a number that is mine associated with my name and address. You ran my credit for it and ran my deposit that cleared. Which I better get back, for all the hassles with morons I have dealt with. Ill tell ya, Customer servie goal is to do things right for 1st time this should never had happened. I would love to resolve this because I need phone service

Approximate 1045am me and my girl friend was moving into 2401 s gessner unit D Houston Texas. AT&T Internet and telephone guy name Mr.rolland was watching us fill out paper work for our apartment. As we got done we had the movers to move our equipment in mean while I was out side watching the movers to make sure that they unload equipment safely. AT&T mr. Rolland was supposed to be doing his job instead he told my girl friend that he can tell that she was unhappy and that he watched us filling out paper work and that she don't need to be wit me . He replied that he was going to school for couples therapy,and that he thank she looks cute and fine! And he would like to get to know her better and take her out for wine. After he got done she was terrified! And afraid . I called AT&T and complained but they acted like they dint care. This is the type of treatment that our girlfriends n wives have to experience from AT&T support team in Houston Texas .my email address Derekd.henderson@yahoo.com

AT&T is putting in cable lines on the highway easement and on my property. Property address: 3070 State Route, Hwy 121 North, Murray, Ky 42071. I was told last week by ATT Engineer, Shelby Allen, that the project in my front yard was complete and that this week they would be back out to seed and straw the open ground in my front yard. The workers did return this week, but not to seed and straw, but to make larger opening on the property - thus the yard looks much worse - not improved.
I began discussion with ATT Engineer, Neil Lindsey - then he went on vacation, then I talked with Shelby Allen, Engineer - now he is on vacation. I have left about 3 messages for Mr. Lindsey to return a call. He will not answer his phone and will not return messages left requesting a returned call.
Last Saturday, I drove Hwy. 121 N. from Murray to Mayfield. The damage to my property is far worse than any other property, with the exception of one Church Cemetery. Please send me the name and contact information of the person I can talk or email. My cell: 901-826-4971. Kathleen Fisher

Want to cancel Connectech I am a 73 year old senior citizen living on social security cannot afford it but foolishly signed up for it thinking it was a plan to service my computer and was desperate at the time thinking it was a connection problem. Signed up with service rep, talked to computer tech, realized the error of this plan with the computer tech, transferred back to service rep, told her I wanted to cancel and was told it would cost me $110.00 to do so. I will have to pay $15.00 each month for 12 months a total of $180.00. I do not want and cannot afford it.

60

On September 14, 2012, I applied online for ATT wireless and paid for 2 iphone 4s. The original package was lost by the Coppell, Texas post office, which I in turn filed a complaint with the Post Office General (and I have a copy). I then called ATT and they sent out replacement phones, but forgot my trailor number, #90, which I have said in every single conversation with them when verifying my address, and since they didnt have my accurate address, fed ex could not deliver it and I had to have it shipped back to att. I called again today (10/05/12) and got the run around for the most part, but instead of adding the #90 to my account and re shipping my phones, which service has started on already, they send me to another place which has to call me back in 24 to 48 hours. All I want is my phones! I do not wish to change my address, only for them to put my trailor number on it and reship them! I did not appreciate getting sent from department to department. No one wanted to help me get this settled, they keep passing the buck. And why schedule call backs if they are not going to do it? NOT HAPPY WITH ATT RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

40

I signed a two year contract with Att I believe in Sept. 2012. Every month I have had to call them because they over charge me. My first bill was a hundred plus dollars more than it was suppose to be. In Dec. I was overcharged . I called customer service and was told from that month on my bill would be 130.00 a month. This was a recorded conversation. I knew it didn't sound right because I have two smart phones and a basic simple flip phone. The rep said she wanted me to be happy and that she was fixing my bill to reflect this amount because of all the trouble in the prior months I had been thru.

I made her repeat the price more than once and ask her " is my bill going to be 130.00 per month every month now?" She stated it was and said she was changing my data plan to a better plan and all that. I was happy with this. I get my Jan. bill and it was 230. + dollars! I call att. The rep I spoke with said he was sorry the rep on Dec. had quoted me that price but they were not able to honor what she had told me my bill would be because I had two smart phones and a 10 gb plan. I ask them if they had record that their rep. Told me after lengthy conversation that this price was being offered to me because of the problems I have had to go thru.

After a very long period of absolute dissatisfact with AT&T, I decided to drop the wireless service. This was back on Sept. 17. I received an incredible bill of 243.70. So I called and was told this was because of my early termination. My phone service was upgraded because I had to get new phones because the store here could not, nor did they try, to fix them. I thought that my contract on both phones had expired. I did not realize, nor was I told, that by getting the new phones I had authmatically upgtraded. I am so furious with AT&T. They will very soon lose my U verse business. The last few times I visited the store, I was treated rudely for the most part and with total indifference. My feeling was they felt that being a big business like AT&T they can do without my business. I switches services and paid what I thought was my last bill. They I get this. I know no one with ATT give a crap about what I feel or how badly I have been treated. I will spend the rest of my days on earth trying to convince everyone I know not to do business with ATT. I'm not just an old man I am a very angry one.

U-verse equipment was to be delivered on 2/15/12 to replace my DSL AT&T left me a message saying the equipment was on back order and wouldn't deliver it till next week. The morning of 2/15/12 I couldn't connect via DSL. For 2 days I spoke with 4 second level support people (among other people) , 2 of which said DSL had been disconnected, but couldn't reconnect as they would have to place an order and it would take 2 to 5 day to have is reconnected. They said that wasn't an option and to wait for u-verse. They didn't offer to put an order in. I got transferred.

The other 2 second level support people said my modem was defected and I had to buy another modem. I finally got to Retention and they ordered a modem for me but would take 2 day for delivery, it would be here on Sat. the 18th I can return it and get my money back. It was ordered. After hanging up I decided to buy my own modem to see what happens. I bought an AT&T Motorola DSL modem. When I installed it on the afternoon of the 16th, I got the exact same results as my old modem was giving me; there was no connection and the green lights were on with DSL flashing green.

So I'm back on the phone, I finally am transferred to a 3rd level support or 'corporate' something, the department that can reconnect DSL. Jerry did so but wouldn't tell me it was reconnected, he just said he ran tests. I still didn't have DSL connected. I asked if would be worth putting my old modem back and he said probably not. He ordered a technician to come to my place the next morning. We hung up.

Then I decided to reconnect my old modem and it worked. A very frustrating time. The customer service, the support team all badly need training. They are best at being kind and saying 'I'm sorry and will get this resolved today' which they didn't. They were wrong about my old modem going bad. They were wrong about not being able to get DSL reconnected. THEY WERE AWFUL OR HAVE NO TRAINING - SOMETHING IS WRONG. (Or are they to get the customer off the phone quickly?

Are they graded on how many phone calls they take in a day? If so, it makes for a horrible company) It took 2 full days to get this fixed and over 7 hours on the phone. REALLY POOR SERVICE. It could have been fixed immediately. The technician called the next morning before coming to my place and he said that this happens all the time. Also, the next morning I got a phone for feedback, I was not at home. I called back the next afternoon to give feedback and they would not take it. I got a recording say I had a limited time to give feedback. VERY POOR. I've left out some of the happening but hopefully you understand the poor poor service.

When I told AT&T/support what had happened on my first call on the morning of 2/15/12, why wasn't I transferred to the department that reconnects DSL . It would have been immediately fixed. Very poor service. Pat in Chicago

On Monday, January 2, 2012, the battery in the UPS of my AT&T UVerse unit failed, causing my TV, internet, and home phone to go out. We called customer service, who told us that a new battery would be delivered by 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, January 4. When no battery arrived, we called customer service again on January 5. They told us that, du to "High Demand," they could not deliver a battery, replacement unit or otherwise get us ANY service until January 24 or after.

My wife spent over an hour on the phone with AT&T UVerse customer service (apparently in India), even speaking to a supervisor, but all they could tell us was that they were "sorry." We have cancelled AT&T and gone back to Charter Cable, which is actually $20 per month cheaper and has twice the Internet speed. I'm looking into moving my six mobile phone numbers from AT&T, as their mobile service has been lacking as well. I hope they figure out their customer service issues quickly or AT&T will lose thousands of customers quickly!

We moved 2 months ago and switched from traditional service to AT&T UVerse. It was not available at our old address. A week and a half ago, our password would not work for our email address (@sbcglobal.net). We have used that email address for over 10 years, which we set up through AT&T and our original AT&T internet service. I tried to reset the password, but it would not accept our zip code, last 4 digits of SS#, nor D.O.B. We were then locked out of our email account. There is no info through Yahoo/SBC/AT&T on how to contact customer service, you must send online messages and provide an alternate email address and a phone number. I did.

As of today (10 days later) I still had no response. So I called the number listed for email and internet customer service. I was on the phone for nearly two hours, with 4 different agents. I was told my email address ends in att.net, not sbcglobal.net. What?! I think I know my own email address that I've logged into every day, sometimes several times a day, for over 10 years. Then I was told I needed to speak to DSL. Was transferred, and then was told it happened w/ the move, even though we moved 60 days ago and the email quit working 10 days ago.

Then I was told I would need to speak to someone else and was transferred back to the main customer service automated line. Ended up right back where I started. Was told I was lying and that my email address is att.net. I asked for the phone number for the legal department and was told there is no such thing. Then I was told I need to speak to SBC Global. I was put on hold for 10 minutes. Agent came back and said he was transferring me. Put on hold for another 10 minutes. Agent came back, said he was transferring me. Then I was hung up on. I was also notified during the many conversations with numerous agents that there is no one at any customer service number working inside the U.S.

I'm so happy we're all throwing our hard earned American dollars at a company that outsources 100% of their customer service, when so many in our country are without jobs right now. AT&T just started a sh&t storm with me. Here we damn well go again. I have just about had enough of getting pushed around from pillar to post with ruddy automated systems. Whatever happened to spreaking to REAL people. All I want is for someone to call me to resolve the issue of a blocked access to my Live account. This is the second account that you have blocked and it is taking longer and longer to resolve. I have followed the procedure set out on "The Automated System" and got absolutely nowhere.

I was having problems with my samsung galaxy III applications not working. I have only had my phone one month or less and these problems were reoccurant. Therefore, I called the problem in to customer care warrant department. The representative informed me that they will send a replacement phone and I should send my phone in within 10 days after recieving the replacement with NO damages. I mailed my phone with no damages. Days later att&t mailed back my phone and the screen was craked. I called the next day to at&t and spoke with Lashay Antione and she stated that there was nothing that they could do about it and that I would be charged for the phone. I explained that the phone was not craked when I sent it off. She was telling me that the box was not damaged or any signs of entry so It was my fault and I had to pay the full price. Afterwards she stated that I could pay $199.99 for the phone. i wanted to speak with a supervisor and he, Odanu Brown 0B249B, stated the same thing. In closing, I know that I sent the phone in and it was not craked or damaged therefore, I am requesting for some other alternatives to settle this problem.

My daughter has had her att.net email address for over 5 years. She is serving in the US army, stationed in Germany. Two days ago, she was able to access her emails. Today, her email account said it was inactive. I was on the phone for over two hours trying to resolve this isuue. I spoke to a total of 7 different reps, who kept re-routing me to the same department. One rep said she had to call me back because of a bad connection, and never did. I explained the same story over and over. I felt like I was in the twilight zone. Several of the reps were argumentative, as I tried to explain I had just spoken to somebody in their dept. Now, my daughter in Germany serving her country can not access any emails from her superiors. That is beautiful-so glad we switched to AT&T-direct tv or comcast is sounding better and better.

For a number of years I lived at 2818 Eaglerock Circle, Missouri City, Texas 77489. At this residence I had telephone, internet and e-mail services through ATT. Through this arrangement, I established an e-mail (adacooper@sbcglobal.net).
In October 2008, I moved to a new residence: 3815 Pleasant Valley Drive, Missouri City, Texas 77459. I was pleased that I did not have to change my phone number and could get ATT internet, e-mail, and U-Verse services at my new location. I specifically requested the same service that I currently had with the addition of UVerse. On the phone, a friendly and seemingly well-informed ATT representative assured me that she could set up the move for me.
My disillusionment with ATT was apparent, when in September 2012, I neglected to pay the phone bill. I was horrified when my e-mail was terminated. I use this e-mail address in my work to maintain contacts with associates. When I called to request reinstallment of the service and to pay the bill, I was asked if my internet service was currently available. When I responded that I could still go online, I found out that I had been paying twice for the same internet service. Although I had been paying the phone bill and U-VERSE separately, I never thought that a company that I trusted would charge me twice for the same service.
I am putting this in writing because I find it almost impossible to speak to a person via telephone. My unfortunate incident in September cost me a days work as I stayed at home, talking to at least ten different departments and individuals. I am having extreme difficulty in finding an address or phone number where I can voice this concern. The result, I had to pay the phone bill twice. Once with the online service that I usually pay with, and again over the phone with the ATT representative. I was told that this was the only way I could get e-mail reinstated.
I am really shocked that this has happened to me. You may attribute it to stupidity on my part, but I attribute it to a ATT representative that failed to provide me with the services that I requested.
I would hate to leave ATT. I have been a loyal customer for years. My question is what can be done to rectify this situation. If nothing is done, I will have no other choice but to leave ATT and find a company that will not charge me twice for the same service.
I know that it is difficult for Managers, executives, directors to provide solutions to every person's problems, but I think this is one that demands someone's attention.
I hope to hear from someone soon!

ON 8/16/2013, around 7:30 PM, we received a call from Windows Tech Mgt. Dept. that stated our computed was filled with many viruses and was about to crash. We believe that the caller was engaging in fraud and did not represent Windows. They gave a phone number of 212-351-5409. We believe they are cold call marketers who are using the name Windows to sell they products. When I asked questions, they became nasty and used profanity to "abuse me".

I called AT&T about the TV commercial offering internet for $14.95. I was told that that price was only if you had other services. They were having a special for $24.95 a month for 12 months. I asked what other costs would there be that I wanted to know exactly how much to know if I could afford internet at all. They told me the 2 in 1 modem/router I would have to buy for $100. I was told that there would be a one time service fee of $36.00. I was told that there would not be a technician fee unless he came in. I told them he would not have to come in because I already had many jacks.

I was told there would not be any taxes or charges of any kind. I repeated that the only charges would be the $24.95 per month for one year, the $36.00 service fee and the $100. for the modem/router. That is all I agreed to. I received my bill and it read that I would be paying $38.00 a month for service, which later they told me that I agreed to that price for 3months, which I did not. I also received a $40. technician fee, and the $100. for the modem/router and $10.83 for something else. After calling them to complain and telling them I did

Not agree to $38.00 a month and that they were scamming me on the $40. technician fee etc. they told me that I had agreed to all that and that was that. No attempts to correct the billing. I am furious. I waited a long time to get internet because I could not afford it. I didn't even have a computer until Dec. and was afraid of all companies offering internet service because of the bait and switch scams. I wish I never had even gotten a computer. I was content to go to the library. All free. No troubles.

I am curious how to get the modem rebate for AT&T uverse service, as this was the primary reason I signed up for the bundle plan. Included in the package was a tv box top, a high speed modem, and all the cables included to hook things up. Once the tech came out to my house, that was the last I heard of them.

Setting up uverse internet was smooth and easy, but when it comes to the financial part of it I have to say that I'm less than pleased. I'm counting on the rebate included in the purchase price to offset the costs, and AT&T customer service has been very difficult to get in touch with!

I have called their customer service line but it's only available during normal business hours, which is hard for me to get away from work to do so. They have to understand the problems of working men and women right?

Unfortunately where I live that aren't that many choices of internet providers so I am pretty much stuck with AT&T regardless of how I feel about them. Until my area gets Verizon FIOS or Comcast I'm screwed here...

For the love of god please I'm begging you AT&T stop using kids in your commercials It's not cute or funny you are a phone company I'm so fucking sick and tired of seeing those idiotic kids and that is saying from a guy that loves kids do know what I think about your commercials it's not buying a phone it's never ever buying one so just do what Verizon does and show a map of the U.S and show how how many places you can call I beg you STOP HAVING KIDS IN YOUR COMMERCIALS

I added a line to my phone in Colorado Springs, CO a couple months back. The really nice guy who was eager for his 2 bucks of commission told me that my bill would be "about" $120.00 a month, written by him right on my contract. My past 3 bills have been outrageous. I went from 120 to $311.00. I was told their is nothing they could do, despite being a paying customer for years, dozens on phone calls and my time, and having been lied to, I am expected to pay over double what I was told in writing? AT&T has not been fair to me, I have two lines and don't expect me to fairly pay up. I work in Las Vegas with a crew of 150 engineers who use blackberries from AT&T. I will personally see that that changes. Thanks for your time and taking up my time once again. I don't want your freebies, your headache, I wanted it resolved but Verizon can most definitely manage. If only I could attach a picture of $311.00 to leave ya..

I just got off the phone with AT&T trying to resolve a long distance billing issue with a third party carrier. When the AT&T service rep got on the line she was immediately defensive and tried to explain her way out of why the long distance billing was 3 months behind. THEN she found out the other customer service rep was on the line and started to argue with him! This coupled with several othe billing problems and instanteous late charges just don't cut it. Problem is there is no other provider in this area. I was appalled by the unprofessional attitude of this rep and really influences all the bad things I had heard about AT&T. If I can find another way around the local porvider issue I'm gone.

I'm being billed for past due bill of $71.42 that has been paid before due...I've talked to teo representative who assureed me the bill would be corrected. The bill was paid from the huntington bank account so there are records of proof that it has been paid. But At&T keeps showing a past due amount.
This has been going on for a month now, I refuse to pay extra!
Thank you,
Marilyn Howell

I have been trying to activate a new cell phone since 11/3/12. Its no 11/6/12. Opened up a family plan to add my husband. Purchased a new phone and have had nothing but problems. It didn't go easy from the beginning just to order a phone and open up the family plan. Maybe that should have been the 1st clus.
My husband now as had no business phone for 4 days and unable to do business. He is a General Contractor and is unable to do business for 2 days. I am getting no where with anyone. I am on the phone for hours and all they do is transfer me to another person they claim is a Manager. Obviously all the have are Managers, all Chiefs and no Indians. Sounds like our government. No one is working to fix the problem. I am again waiting for someone to call,. The last and maybe the 8th manager I spoke to last night did give me his direct line to call him this morning. I left a voice mail for him to call almost 45 minutes ago. Still no call back. I am contacting another company and will be moving everything from AT&T.

In July, 2012, I moved and had At&t change my service to the new address, with no changes to to the service. The old service included unlimited long distance calling.
For 5 months I have been billed for long distance calls, and for 5 months I have talked with 5 AT&T Customer Service Representatives who credited the billing and assured me that the problem was fixed. In Dec ,2012, a 6th rep told me that
the 5 reps before her had credited me for the bill, but failed to actuate the change that would fix the problem and that she would do so.
Now, I have another bill in Jan, 2013, again billing me for long distance calls.

AT&T, your customer service sucked! I was on the phone with your Customer Representatives (transfer again again again and again....) for three hours, no one could solve our problem... we ordered the service early Sep and for some reason the modem got lot / According to UPS, they said they dropped in the front door but WE NEVER GOT IT. We were just requesting you to send us another one, but you wanna charge us another 150 dollars.... THIS CONVERSATION TOOK US THREE HOURS!!

It is not our responsible for the lost Modem!!!!!!!!!!!! so to the end, we wanna cancel the service (never have had use the service), and you wanna charge us the fine for 150 dollars!! What the rip-off...seriously..this is how you big company do business? we are definitely report this to the Better Business Bureau of Chicagon, IL! For such a big crop, this service is not acceptable!

I went to the at&t store inbaton rouge Louisiana located on bluebonnet in the mall. I have had any pfoblems with my cell phone.

I had a 16G phone when I went to the store to get if worked on they slipped me a 8G phone and It was a hassle getting a similar phone back, they argued with me.

They also xwhen swapping out the phone discontinued my unlimited text without my permission I want my service back and will not rest until I get it back.

I thought AT&T cared about it's customer, well this will tell if they do or not. I have been fighting this for a verg long time. This MADD thd phone bill double, I can not afford this, being diabetic I have nang medications to get and so does my wife.

Does AT&T care about the customer or is money the most important thing even if it cost the customer his health. I am getting really aggravated with this. I eant my original plan back and want it now.

KI use AOL and at least 5 times per day an AT&T Ad cascadees across the page I am working on and interrupts my work. I must stop what I am doing and individually close out each AT&T page. This is infuriating and these ads make me hate AT&T with a white hot HATE! I am so annoyed by these ads I am considering finding another provider to replace all of my AT&T services. I currently use Uverse for my internet service, AT&T for my wireless service and Uverse for my home phone. I pay well over $200 per month for these services. But I am FURIOUS that your company has chosen to advertise in such a negative way.

If you do not stop this advertising I will cancel all AT&T services and I will encourage my friends to do the same.

I request to switch my home phone from U-verse to a regular home phone line due to U-verse not comply with the home security company ( order # 97001408). The technician was scheduled on April 2 from 8:00a.m. to noon. In the morning I realized that my home phone was disconnected, I call customer service and was explained that technician will be in my house to make necessary connections. I call second time at 11:40 a.m. to find out where is the technician - did not get an answer - the communication was disconnected. After that I call 5 more times to find out where is the technician, but no any answer - every time the communications was disconnected when I ask question why AT&T did not keep their appointments and nobody call to cancel the appointment.

I took day off at my own expenses and it cost $159.00 per day . Finally when I call last time (7 times a day ) the customer service told me that the department I need are closed and nobody could help me at this time. Since At&t disconnect my home line - they also disconnect home alarm and solar transmitter - everything work from the phone line. I have been a customer with at&t for a long time - since Pacific Bell merge with AT&T and I did not expect such a service. Please solve the problem and send a technician to my house during the week after 6:00 p.m. I will not take another day off from my work. So far your service cost me $ 159.

Had u-verse (internet and phone acct 125789596) installed 3/29/13 at 11am. Needed to install new wiring, apprx 700 feet, was told they will bury wire in 1 - 2 days. I was givin intaller and his mgrs telephone number in case of problems. On Saturday called and left msg for installer about noise/static on phone line. Didn't want to bury wires if wire is a problem. No call back over weekend. Recalled on Monday 4 times no call back, called mgr 3 times and no call back until 3:30pm that day. He said installer on vacation and he was in meetings. Their voice mail had no indication of vacation or being in meetings.

Also their voice mail did not have a greeting as to whose phone I was calling. When mgr called he said wire wouyld not be buried for 1 to 2 weeks, I was told from installer a couple of days. Mgr said not ATT problem because they conract the service. Never told this, wire laid on grass area and over driveway. Can not cut grass. At 4:30pm mgr called back and asked my address so he could call conractor to get wire on the list to get installed. Installer never called conractor. Don't you have my street address on file from my acct number. Asked to have the mgrs mgr speak to me, could not, asked for the mgr to call me. This never happened, no call back and this is Wednesday.

On Tuesday 4/2 morning called u-verse service and asked rep for a mgr to discuss my complaint, none available, asked for my phone number and mgr will call back, as of 1pm Wednesday no call. And this is customer service. I have other issues with your customer service. I'm trasferred to another dept I have to go through your voice response system. I have asked a number of people the name, address, e-mail of the VP/Director of customer service so I can write my complaint, no one could give me that info its not ATT poicy to give that info. I called many ATT numers and finally found someone who told me can't give you thatat name/number but if you go on ATT.COM and access Contact Us theire is a complaint e-mail address. While your rep was on line I tried to access what she said to do, it was not their.

I absolutely HATE the new Att.Net home page , I like my old one . Last night I had a customer service rep to help me get back my old home page and now I have to change it every time I leave it to browse something else or go out and I am sick to death of it and getting more and more disturbed by it. Any suggestions on keeping it on my old Att.Net home page or just get another internet service?

I have never had a worse experience with you. I ordered a cell phone last week. Ten days later I am getting a refund that I do not want because of the incompetence of some of your workers. I sent in a complain to you 36 hours ago and haven't even received a response from you yet. The order number is 90410555480164. The order was sent to the wrong address, returned to you, lost in your wait house from Mpnday until Thursday, a refund that was nt supposed to happen has been given. Now I have to redo the entire order again when my refund comes back (whenever that may be.) on top of all this, I had to order a phone that I do not want because the worker told me what I wanted was not available, but it is!!! Why isn't there a specialist calling me on the phone to keep a customer of 14 years happy? All I want is my phone. I can work with all of the other problems that have been presented. Is someone at least going to email me back?

My upgrade a month a go was on march but now push back to may, which is also the end of my contract. My contract is going to end on May. If I can't upgrade to iphone 5 now, by the time my contract end I am just going with other carrier, I guess being loyal customer for 7 years doesn't mean anything. Maybe getting another $240 is better than another $1200 at least since I will be tying on a contract for 24 months. I just don't understand where is att business sense. I am only 3 months a part from my contract but yet you don't want give me an early upgrade. If you saying you have contract with apple then just push forward my eligibility early so I buy it from out side. If this is doesn't get resolve soon, I'll end my contract in may and I'll post this all over the internet how bad is att!!!

the reason iam complaining about the LTE data plan because here in Laredo Tx , they sell us the 3gb LTE data plan but here in Laredo tx the LTE doesnt work , you have to travel 150 to SanAntonio Tx for the LTE to work and its very fast but only when you to san antoinio and thats like ones or twice a year how come AT&T can sell over a service that they are not Prividing.

March 5th 2012, I saw an online offer from AT&T and I wished to add home phone line service to my existing internet account. I placed online order and after receiving the email confirmation, I wanted to check the order status online but couldn’t login with the code provided. I called AT&T to inquire about it and was told that due to an error in the order, it didn’t get processed and she would b happy to place the order via phone.

On further discussion it turned out that I will not get the benefit of the order that I was trying to sign up for. Frustrated by their deceptive advertising, I decided to cancel the order on which the rep said that since it didn’t go through the first time, there is no need to cancel. Next day I decided to cancel my internet service as well and called to cancel it and insisted that I want an email confirmation of the cancellation. The service rep promised to send the email and after few hours, I received an email THANKING me for placing an order with AT&T.

Appalled and frustrated, I called again to inform about my cancellation request and was promised once again that an email will be sent and the order has been cancelled. There was never a cancellation email sent but instead, I received a phone call that someone wants to come to my residence to install the phone line. I informed the caller that I do not have a service request and he needs to straighten it out with AT&T and his response was “ I am just told to go and install the service, you have to call for cancellation.

I called the 3rd time, and whoever is familiar with AT&T knows that each call lasts more than half hour including wait and transfers from one department to another. I explained the whole situation to the account department and also got fraud department contact to tell them that someone is ordering on my behalf. I once again asked for cancellation email that never came in spite of the promise. I never made time to call the fraud department.

In the meantime, my husband placed order under his name and got his services up and running on the same residence. I didn’t get another phone call or email but today, on April 7th, one month since that drama, I receive a bill for $75.15 for the new internet and home phone service.

For having such a large customer base and a big name in domestic services, AT&T should be ashamed of using such unethical and fraudulent methods to rip off people’s money and valuable time. Not only I do not wish to pay a single cent for services that I never ordered or used, I want AT&T to pay for my time that I have spent on fixing it’s issues and dealing with corrupt, incompetent and clueless customer service staff who does not understand the difference between Cancellation and Activation.

ATT sent me a letter that 2g support would basically end within 2months and that I should bring in my 2g basic phone for a free, no contract impact swap to one of 4 basic 3g phones. As I have an extra line for my wife and she has a 2g phone, I brought both in to exchange. I was told they would only change mine and to change 2nd line basic phone I would need to pay an upgrade fee and sign a new 2 year contract. We have not had a contract for at least 10 years and keep going on same terms as expired contract.

A note...though we have 550 combined monthly minutes, we barely use less than 40 per month and I have always paid online the day bill is available, so ATT has been making a bundle on us for extremely low use at $55 a month for only voice use. I explained that swapping one phone and not 2nd one would leave 2nd line disabled, but they did not care. They will not swap the 2nd line basic phone unless I pay and sign 2 year agreement! I am now looking at finally going to Verizon on 65+ plan and company discount making monthly fee for 2 lines $52.50 plus taxes for 450 minutes...plenty or us.

ATT is trying to shaft us by allowing only 1 phone swap to 3g, making 2nd line our problem. Something is wrong in this methodology of stopping phone supprt and providing no new phone..especially with the HUGE profit they have and still make from us for such minmal phone use!

On Friday March 22, 2013 I called AT&T to discuss my current bill which I just received. In Oct we started the bundled billing I was advised my bill would be $124.00 for 2 years my first bill and subsequent bills have been $138.96 until this months bill which has increased to $145.10? in less then 6 months my bill has gone up. what happened to our agreement? I was on the phone over an hour and half yesterday I spoke with the Phillipines 3 times India 2 and someone in Oklahoma the last person either hung up or we were disconnected no one could explain to me why or make any sense. iI do not have the time or patience to go around the world to discuss my bill.There is no where on my bill with an address to send a complaint. I will send my bill this month in the amount of $138.96. I expect AT&T to keep their agreement. I would like someone from your company to call me before I change to Comcast Cable of Dish. It should be noted that We have been doing business with AT&T since 1979 we are both seniors on a fixed income. that is why we did the bundle.

WHen I purchased my new Iphone I was told that it could now FACETIME over cellular. Since I have had an unlimited data plan for me and my wife's phones since 2003, I was told by Apple this was ideal. After my PHONE told me to contact AT&T to activate FACETIME over cellular, the bait and switch began. AT&T insisted I had to drop my unlimited plan and go to a new "Shared Data" that would drop me to 2GB of data for BOTH phones. THe cost would be the same until I went over my data limit....then the price gouging would begin. Really? A customer with AT&T Cellular since 1996 and yet again no regard for loyalty by those who I've helped keep in business. PLEASE find some sanity and make a grandfather to this new plan.

Our family signed up joining family wireless phone plan with ATT Sale in Irvine, Ca. One of the line were told by the sales Michael H was a system generated error which resulted over charge $44.23 every month. The sales has credited me 3 months and he told us the problems will be fixed. History of all the email communications are available. After 5 months the $44.23/mo. overcharge still not resolved. And now has past the one month back out period.

The Sales person told me Nov,5th, 2012 to deduct $88.25 from the Nov 2012 bill. ATT wireless sent me letter to pay the $88.25 in full otherwise will disconnect all my wireless phone lines. ACC#337018282403 Credit my account for the full $129.46 and all related charges. Fix the system generated error back to agreed rate $9.99/mo. AT&T has drag this problem over the one month back out period. If the problem still not fixed, refund me 949-394-xxxx the activation fee and cancel this phone line.

I depend on my phone for my work. My office is in my phone. I'm paying insurance with AT&T and got a replacement iphone 4S, damaged. so I had to re-send it again, which means 5-7 days without phone for the second time. I didn't know that after paying for insurance what you get is a refurbish phone and not a new one. The insurance co. even told me that if I get the replacement and is damaged again, I will have to keep re-sending it as much as needed. So what is the use of paying for insurance if you don not have guaranteed of geting a reliable phone?
I think AT&T should inform the client that the insurance they offer is not a reliable one because the company dosen't sends new iphones as replacements. I' m very dissapointed with AT&T because I have been a responsible client for so many years, and I chose AT&T because I travel a lot as a missionary and the coverage is one of the best. I bought an iphone, because I need a reliable phone, as I need a reliable company as is supposed to be AT&T. Please make sure I get a new iphone, that I can rely on, as soon as possible. I'm willing to get the iphone 5 but I have to wait until May 2013 because of my contract. PLEASE, help me with this matter. Thank you, Lyssette Ruiz. ( The main account is under Yarley Nino)

I was happy with my DSL internet service. When I moved, I was convinced to switch my service from DSL to U-Verse, guaranteed that the rate will be the same. It was not. Then I had to wait 3 weeks until they figure out how to install it, then they disconnected my service with no reason and had to wait another 3-4 weeks. All this in within 1 year. The biggest problem is that there is nobody seems to care and I really hate switching to another company and being without internet again.

Recently decided to upgrade our service w/AT&T as our phones stopped working anyway so since they were giving the iphone 4 for .99 cents we decided to upgrade our service. What could posibly go wrong? Everything. Since the moment we walked into one of their stores, for a simple upgrade the first trip took over 2 1/2 hrs. They were having some kind of computer glitch. We walked out of the store after 2 1/2 hours w/out the phones but w/an upgraded contract or so we thought. We were told the phones would come in the mail in a week as they had run out. A week later what did we get we get a bill for the total due for the new upgraded service. A new bill? but we hadn't even gotten the phones yet nor had the account activated yet. We were told we would need the phones in order to do activation. After we received the phones, which was a few days after the bill had arrived, we went back to the store and this time we had the undesired privilage of waiting 3 hours as one of the lines was activated however my husbands line had a problem and so after 3 hours at this store we walked out, with one line working and w/a promise from some tech that they would call us back w/in one hour after they got problem fixed. The did indeed call to tell us they could not find the problem and they would call us the next day. Since my husband would not be home he asked them to speak to me the next day. NO CALL ever came so I contacted AT&T and spoke to one Rep and explained the whole story and as nice as she was she could not fix whatever problem was w/the phone line so she transfered me somewhere else and I had to retell the whole story once again to another Rep and she put me on hold and got her manager involved and 1 1/2 hours later no resolution, I told the Rep to call me back w/whatever info she found regarding the problem. She called back and left me a message saying that they could not get to the bottom of the problem and so that they were going to have to file case to get line restored so that another department could take a look and resolve the problem. Here is the kicker she said it would take ONE WEEK to get an answer. WHAT? to get a line reactivated. Called back looking for Linda but the girl that answered said there were tons of Reps and she didn'tknow who linda was. Asked for a supervisor as one week to get a line reactivated was unacceptable to us so i got a Rusty Anderson on the line. After explaining now the problem to Rusty he said there was a case already filed and they couldn't do anything else, he also said he needed to speak w/the owner of the account my husband. ??????? I just spoke to how many of your Reps that did not ask to speak to the owner of the account and after all this time on the phone, NOW you ask to speak to the owner of the account. That account bythe way up to a week ago was in my name but per the suggestion of one the Reps in order for us to get a corporate discount, transfered ownership of the accounts to my husband. I got my husband on my cell and asked Rusty if he could hear my husband to which he said yes but he wanted my husband to call directly to them. WHY if he could hear my husband why cant he just continue helping us? I tell you why because the girl I spoke to before Rusty said if I hung up and call back I would get a completly different person. Not acceptable at all. This Rusty was just trying to pass the buck as they say and hope someone else would get us and deal w/the problem instead of him. Rusty Anderson proceeded to tell me they had done all they were going to do and if I wasnt happy I could just take the phones and drop them off at the store we got them at. After like 3 weeks of trying to do a simple upgrade we are going to Verizon. They are offering the iphone 4 for FREE and for aproxametly the same price. Very unhappy w/the outcome of this problem as we have been w/AT&T for years and years before they were called AT&T .

I transferred my 3 yr AT&T DSL to a new address and was promised to get one year promotional service @$19/month. Since April I have been calling the AT&T billing office that the cahrge of 35.84 is wrong and every tinme they assured me that it will be fixed. It has never occured and it appears nobody knows what they are doing. They will act like robots, your name your last 4 digit SS canyou offer you infor on promotion the bill will be fixed in 3 cycles. When you call nobody knows waht is going last call today they transferred me to the rewards section. Frustrating and what an inefficent company Still struggling to fix my meal further more they are charging 5-6 dollar to the bill because of late fee. I am amd and frustrated with AT&T!

I had dsl 6.0 for over a year, but only really hadabout 2.0 speed. I called numerous times to complain and got a different excuse everytime. Techs would come to my house and couldnt find anything wrong and just leave, or wouldnt even show up in the first place after wed wait all day. I was going to cancel my dsl when at&t said i could upgrade to uverse and that would fix my slow speeds.They said it would be $179. for the change, but with a $100 rebate it would be only $79.

My bill finally came and it was $304, and guess what-ITS NO FASTER THAN IT WAS TO BEGIN WITH. One of their so called techs came to our house and tried to tell us that my new xbox was bad my two new desktops were bad and our wii was bad and our new laptop were bad, lol. Then he change his story and said it takes 10 days for uverse to ramp up to full speed. Well thats a lie also, come to find out if a customer calls within 10 days of the tech leaving their home, it goes against the techs record.

I can honestly say that at&t has lied to me everytime ive talked to them, and they dont give a damn about keeping their customers. We ordered uverse over the phone - we have at@t internet and home phone. The agent said we had to bundle all. ATT now has our home listed as disconnected and listed to a different woman in the same town but our phone still rings to this number. The agent said we can get a $ 216 gift card - now impossible to get. Recived $90 internet bill on one phone that has unlimited data plan, $90 for going over limit- there is no limit on plan in place.

Internet service at home keeps going out and has to be rebooted and the sound quality in one room is no good and the company cant fix it. The company wont pick up their lines or operators drop calls on transfers. They have the wrong email address for us but their website wont allow us access to change information. I am cancelling everthing that was installed.

I signed up for an ATT UVERSE 200 / High speed internet bundle advertised at $90.00 per month with free HBO and Cinemax for 3 months. After 3 months ATT has billed me for a total of $497.99. They also started charging for HBO and Cinemax 2 months before the free promotional period was over. They also lied about the expiration of the free promo period on their Billing website, claiming the expiration was one month after the actual expiration.

Looking to join a class action lawsuit against these ridiculous billing practices.

I contacted At&t towards the end of June last year (2012) about an employee saying she was and could access my account. So I called and filed a complaint and had At&t put a passcode on my account so she couldn't access my account. She had also been texting me and harassing me through text messages. I had asked to to stop. She stopped until around Jan. 23rd, I believe. with her phone calls and text messages again. She stopped for awhile, but started back yesterday, Feb. 25th, 2013 with her texts messages harassing me again. I would like this employee of At&t to stop. Her name is Lisa Marie Nolan she works in sales in or around the Reno, Nevada area. Her phone number is 775-830-4713 thank you kindly

I set up service with ATT bundle department for Internet and TV. Yet 2 months later I still am fighting over incorrect billing, wrong services, mislead and lied to by sales agent, wasted over 40 hours of my personal life trying to correct your companies idiot errors. I will be filing a complaint with everyone possible over this and will not refer your services to anyone and will now be looking for another company to switch my tv, and internet and will also be looking to go to Verizon after almost 18 years with your company. I don't believe the customer is always right, but I know my initial conversation was recorded. I have spoke to over 20 different people and still not corrected to my original agreement. I will see you in court if you think I will pay what I did not agree to. I do not want to speak to another person in a foreign country either! I was promised a bill $69 a month bill for Internet, and direct tv with 3 receivers, one being HD DVR all free for 12 months. All on ONE BILL through ATT! I suggest you fix this and compensate me for the worst service and lost time with children, husband and life, and for my minutes being wasted on my cell phone.
Sincerely disgusted soon to be ex-customer

We are in quite a pickle here and getting ready to cancel our accounts with AT&T. On September 19, 2012 Steven Meyers contacted us regarding the “special, discounted” pricing on upgrades. We took advantage of this “special” iPhone pricing and INITIALLY requested one iPhone 5 (####-6543) and one iPhone 4S (####-5005). I received an email confirmation of these account changes from Steven at 3:42P on 9-19-12. At 4:07P on 09-19-12, I replied to Steven’s email requesting that we exchange the iPhone 4S (####-5005) for an iPhone 5. Steven responded, via email on 09-20-12 at 7:28A indicating that the order had already been processed and requested that I call him, which I did, immediately, and had to leave a voicemail message. Since I did not get a response of any sort from Steven, I sent him an email at 11:18A on 09-20-12, indicating that I had left him a voicemail message earlier that morning. Still no word from Steven, I sent him an email on 09-21-12 at 9:18A inquiring about the protocol to follow to get the iPhone 4S (####-5005) exchanged to an iPhone 5. Steven responding, via email, on 09-21-12 at 9:24A, stating “Basically the easiest option would be to issue you a return label for the 4S when it arrives, and once that is reported as returned, we can order the iPhone 5. Unfortunately because the order is processed and sent off, we can't reverse it until the phones are shipped to you. You do not want to refuse shipment though- that may mess up the whole upgrade process with the other ordered iPhone 5s. Accept the shipment when it comes in and e-mail me, and we will issue you a return label.” So, on 10-04-12, I attempted to contact Steven, via email to advise him of the arrival of the iPhone 4S (####-5005) and immediately received an undeliverable email from postmaster@us.att.com. At this point I’m frustrated with AT&T and let the matter sit a few days, while I regained my composure, as not to be unprofessional. Naturally, other business came about and the phone matter disappeared from my priority list until Jeff Ringenberg called our office on Wednesday, 09-25-12. I contacted Jeff, via phone, and he had given my co-worker, Traci Beecher, a number to call to do the swap, indicating that if we had difficulties we should then contact Jeff. Well, obviously, we had problems and have attempted to get in touch with Jeff, via phone messages and emails.. However, it seems to be a pattern at AT&T to initiate Business Account contact and then disappear. Customer Service is certainly LACKING at AT&T. All we are trying to do is EXCHANGE a phone. I do NOT understand the difficulty with this request and would like to HOW we can complete this transaction? Please advise. I understand that we currently do not have a large business account with AT&T, but our Sprint account has over 90 devices (at $6k - $7k monthly) and we are seriously considering moving over to other cellular providers; however, at this point it looks like we’ll have to work with Verizon. Thank you for your time and response.

In Jan 2012 you promised to credit us (William Kaupas 214-383-0410 9900 Derwent Plano TX 75025) approx $290 on our bill....for 11 months you have called off and on claiming to turn our phone off for non payment. We have always paid the balance of our phone each month, less this balance. Check the records.

We have spend hours on hours on the phone with your people, a number of times...each time we are promised it will resolved...and each tell you have lied to us. Now, I try to call and the telephone will not work because of the unpaid balance. This must be resolved...it has been going on for 11 months.....and you are hurting my credit.

If we cannot get this resolved my next email/letter will be letter to the FCC.

I’ve been having trouble with my ATT Uverse connection for about a month now. It loses signal everyday every afternoon and comes and goes. I can't even you the house phone to complain because Uverse voice is lost also. I finally called ATT from my cell phone 0n Thursday 10-4-2012 and an appointment for a tech to come out Saturday afternoon between 12 and 4 pm.
The tech gets here around 2:30, without calling first that he is on his way. I explain the problem of the signal loss and ask me to show he the lines outside. While going through the house my wife arrives thru the back door and he tells here " Hey sweetheart what going on". My wife replied “I don't think so". I led the tech to the back of the house and opened a side gate to where he could go to his truck and back. I went back into the house where my wife was very upset and she said to me that it was a very inappropriate thing to say to a customer. And I agree. After about 30 minutes the tech rang the front door and said he wanted to test one of the receivers and the cable coming to it. I saw him hookup a meter to it and he said was getting 100% signal to it. He then said he was going out to the truck for about 10 minutes and I said okay. I closed the door behind him. I went back to talk to my wife in the kitchen and after about 5 minutes I went back to the bedroom were the tech had left the meter hooked up and found that the tech was back in the house. And without ringing the doorbell for me to let him back in. This really surprised me. I use to install Direct TV and Dish Network and we were thought to let the customer know when we were coming back in the house. Anyway he told me everything was working properly and he left. My wife and I watched some TV in the living room before leaving and it looked ok. When we got home around 10pm I noticed the TV's in the bedrooms were not working. I call ATT on Sunday Morning 10-7- 2012 and told the person on the phone that the tech did something or didn't do something right because all the TV's were working before he got there. She started to tell me to run this test and that test and I finally said that they needed to send a tech out to fix the problem. He then said to me that it is up to the tech to determine if the will be a service charge if it was something that we did to the service. I then told her that it was something that the service tech did because he said he installed some new parts outside. My wife then asked that she wanted to talk to a supervisor and complain about the techs actions and inappropriate remarks that he said to her. She did get to talk to someone else whether it was a supervisor or not. We have not heard anything back from ATT. I went outside afterwards to see what the tech had done outside the day before and saw where he had left their box wide open and the cable going to the other TV's disconnected from the coupler and the coupler just hanging. Also the side gate was left open. Thank God my English Bull Dog didn't get out. I re hooked up the cable to the coupler but left the rest of the techs work as he left it. Hopefully the next tech will turn it in to Quality Control...if ATT those has a QC department.

I am at my wits end. My life has been hell since falling prey to AT&T false and fraudulent promises...that is until you sign on the dotted line. I was told there was excellent coverage in my area so I switched carriers. Huge MISTAKE. I have now had 3 different microcells and all 5 of our phones freeze up after a 2 min. conversation.

What is worse is because the freeze up the call is not dropped the minutes keep adding up and you cannot end the calls. Sometimes the only way to end a call is to remove the battery allow phone to cool down ( all 5 phones different operating systems Android and windows and different manufacturers) and restart. When the phone freezes up it shows full signal strength and that it is connected to the microcell.

At first it was just voice , but now we are having as many issues with data and text. I have been on the phone with AT&T over 100 times only to be continually told "based on your minutes we show that you are using your phone successfully" No idiots based on the fact that we can not hang up our phones when the other end goes dead, it continues to rack up minutes. I have gone from using less then 600 min shared for 5 family phones to over 1500 before the end of the billing period.

I have told them to look at the actual numbers called and they will see a continued pattern of recall to the same number over and over again. And then finally they will see that a land based phone has to be used to contact a family member on the plan. So now I have 5 phones that dont work, I have had to have a land based phone installed which now goes against our minutes as it is no longer cell to cell! Its a nighmare. The only thing I have continually told them is that whenever we have a visitor to our house with a IPhone they never experience the nightmare we have.

I have asked AT&T to send us a refurbished IPHONE and lets see what happens but they refuse. They now say we cant guarantee service in your area, even though we were told it was excellent and based on their own web site our address shows good coverage. I have talked to the managers, manager manager and so on and so on only to be spit out the same lies and deceit.

I have also been told that I am the only person on the earth that is having this issue even thought there are countless other horror stories on the internet of the same issue with AT&T and specifically Samsung phones having this issue. My only recourse at this point is to file a Notice of Dispute and take them to Arbitration. I will be seeking relief for the costs of all phones, mental anguish, loss of business and withdrawal from the contract.

Never ever again will I sign a contract with a mobile carrier. They lie and will tell you anything to get your signature on their contract. Shame on you AT&T and shame on your customer service, tech support and Presidents office ( which is just a hyped up name for some idiot behind a desk who spits out a written response.)

Being hung up on and blocking my phone where I could not call back. On 12/28/12 I called to complain about a new phone that I had received and it was dropping calls and not holding a charge. I called to get a new phone and talked to Stacey Norfleet in Las Cruces New MX who was unable to help me & transferred me to Paul in technology who was also unable to help me so I asked to speak to his supervisor and he hung up on me and blocked my calls.

Monday 12/31/12I talked with Darnisha in So. Carolina who held me on the phone for over 25 minutes so I hung up. Called again talked to Brianna Johnson, Mobile AL who transferred me to Karisa Carniel in Ft. Lauderdale FL. I have my TV services, internet and cell phone all with AT&T and my quest is still unresolved. Can I get some help? Is this the best service we can get from AT&T?

A representative came to my house to sell me ATT Uverse. I reluctantly took the service and have had nothing but problems since. First my bill was more than I expected. Then a piece of equipent went bad. I was told that I would have to send it back within certain time. I had to drive 35 minutes to turn in equipment to the closest UPS store.

When I got there, they would not take it because they had no pick up order. Really? Then I had my service cut off because my bill was sent through email along with a million other ATT emails daily which I automatically deleted not realizing a bill was included. When I called to get this mess straightened out I was charge a huge reconnection fee. They would only take the charges off if I agreed to let them automatically draft my bank account. I had enough. I canceled service and was charge an early cancelation fee.

I refused to take equipment back since it was a 35 minute drive and was sent a prepaid UPS box to mail it back. I sent it back the next day after I received it. That was in January and I am being billed for this equipment, even though I have a receipt from UPS with tracking number and signature of person receiving it.

I have made numerous phone calls and ATT just can't find the equipment. Now I have been turned into collections. AT&T is the worse company I have ever dealt with. THEY SUCK!

I called AT&T in March to get long distance added to my home phone service. I was told by customer service that uverse was now available in my area and that all at&t customers where going to have to convert over to it. I was told that there would bo no charge for the modum and no installation charge. I agreed to go ahead and get converted.
In March, I received my regular bill of $136.00 and i also received a $260.00 for uverse. I called 7 or 8 times to customer service and each time I was told that I had to paid these bills. At one point someone finally took off 49.50 for the installation charges but there were other charges that were not removed and I was told that instead of the modum being free I had to keep the service for 30 days then I could file for a reward card which would take another 4 to 6 weeks before shipping.
So I ended up paying $210 in March for the uverse and I did not pay the 136 thinking that it would adjust down to zero once they had all the correct information in their system.
Now, in april I am being billed 76.00 for uverse (which is correct) but today I received a late payment bill for 112.00 for my regular old service. I called customer service and tried to explain that the old service was discontinued and since at&t always bills in advance that bill should have zeroed out.
I could not get them to understand that and when I asked for a district manager's phone number they ignored my question and stated that I had to pay the 112 plus the 76. I can not afford to pay them $200 a month two months in a row nor should I ever have had to pay this amount. It is not right and it is not fair what at&t is doing.

Have feedback for AT&T?

Thanks for your feedback!

Sorry. Please try again later!
