AT&T Complaints Continued... (Page 10)1248+ reviews added so far. Upset? Call AT&T corporate: 1 (800) 331-0500
I have been trying to get my phone service to work for the last two weeks and to no avail has anyone been able to help me,or tell me why my service is not working. I have spoken with more than twenty people in different states. I had one lady name Rochelle try to get me to get televison service. When I told her I did not want it she politely took it upon herself to say, why? don't you have money. How dare you ask me that. That is none of her business. Another person yelled at me and told me I was not suppose to have something on my phone. I truly thought i paid this bill so I can have whatever I desire. It has not gotten any better. My phone still doesn't work and they don't care because we have no other phone companies to go too. Well I have decided if this how retail people treat customers like me and you we are dome.
I ordered a tablet ,returned a tablet. I didn't like the tablet and asked if I returned could I have original tablet was told yes but AT&T will not send out tablet at original promotion. Was billed 57.15 and 14.99 for a tablet used one day.
EVERY month my bill seems to be different. I call the customer support line and the agent usu sally upgrades or credits my account, but then the next month, nothing has changed. This has been 2years now that I have called almost EVERY month to dispute charges. As of today, I am on the phone with att now and they are telling me that the gentleman who upgraded my account on December 23, 2014 upgraded it, but didn't leave any notes, not even his name. So, I have not only been overpaying $20 these past 3 months, but now they are raising it $70 and saying there is nothing they can do for me! WHY SHOULD THE CUSTOMER BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MISTAKES OF YOUR REPS??
I am a single mother and have been in and out of the hospital these past few months and it is absolutely ridiculous that I have to be on the phone for hours trying to figure out why YOUR REPS haven't done what they were suppose to? PLEASE CHECK MY ACCOUNT AND LOOK AT EVERYTHING THAT HAS TRANSPIRED THESE PAST 3YRS!!! ALSO, I deactivated my Automatic Draft, I think a year ago, because y'all kept drafting different amounts. After I deactivated my account and removed my CC information, y'all somehow STILL drafted over $200 out of my account! Which is very ILLEGAL!!! I was in the process of getting a lawyer on that matter, but I ended up letting it go, until NOW! I'm so frustrated with dealing with agents in different states and not EVER being able to get back to that same rep to hold them accountable for NOT doing their jobs or lying to customers about promotions and rates! WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!
On 11/1/2014 I was offered a new package which included HD Discount for one year. This was verified on 11/15/2014 by rep. Fredlene. Every month I have to call to have my bill adjusted because I am billed for HD. On 2/24/15, rep Ms Mary adjusted my bill but said I will have to call in March again. When I called, (on 3/26/15 at 8.45am) I spoke to rep. Shae who could not help me so I spoke to her supervisor. The supervisor was rough with me, and even said there are no records of the date I quoted and all my previous bills were adjusted in error. She said I should have been billed the full amount since December 2014. As I am sure these conversations are recorded, someone in a senior position needs to investigate why the supervisor behaved this way and confirm whether what I am saying is true or not.
Called ATT to move phone service and internet, order was placed on 3/12/15. Called customer service 2 times to verify service turn on and all the times they conformed time and date for service activation at new residence. Finally at 4PM internet was active, but dial phone was not and ATT customer service showed service was to get turned on 3/25/15. Time came and went when service was to be turned on, called customer service and they are closed. Called repair department, they tell me there is nothing they can do, they don't even see a repair/ installation ticket for my service.When I tell them there is a medical alarm on the service there repair supervisor" Eva Jones ID # 942" tells me not there problem.To call again tomorrow and then she hung up.
After being a customer of AT&T for more than 35 years, my last experience may as well have been the straw that broke the camel's back. I was given the "opportunity" to upgrade my phone and was glad to do so. I ended up getting the latest Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. Great phone but that's where the "good" ends. When I bought the phone, I was told that they offer a "free" Samsung tablet. Having never owned one, I thought it would be nice to have since it was "free". The 1st one I received lasted about 1 day before it locked up and I had to return it. Once that was done, I received a letter 2 days later stating congratulations on adding this new line and to enter my access info to hollow my charges. That's where the "free" came back to me. I was told that since this is a cell tower dedicated tablet, there is a $10 monthly charge.
I don't need a tablet that tells me the same thing I get on my home computer and smart phone. I tried to return it and it was like pushing water uphill. I had to go as far as calling the Corp. customer service line and ask to speak with a manger. Since the box it came in was accidently thrown away, I was told they can't re-sell it and it was mine to keep. Not a chance. I had to threaten canceling 4 cell phones, a home phone and U-Verse internet. (That's another story since I was forced to give up my DSL which worked just fine. Not any faster and more expensive....)
They finally gave in but they said I had to ship it back in a box I had to buy "since they did not have any in their store. They had 2 on display right there in front of me......They gave me a return label and said have a nice day... Are you kidding? Run fast if you get a similar offer. Go buy a I PAD that is Wi-Fi ready and you don't have to pay a monthly fee. VERY disappointing. I hear Sprint and others will cut my rate in half. I think I need to look at this deeper......
When I started my service I especially asked about unlocking my phone as I travel internationally and to very small countries. I have enjoyed being able to purchase local SIM cards. I was told I needed to wait 14 days, but I would be able to unlock my phone then. Both VIA chat and at the local store personnel confirmed such. I waited 14 days and requested to be unlocked. I got a response back that I needed to wait 60 days. I waited 60 days now I'm told I have to buy out my contract, change my number and start over on a month to month plan. I personally like AT&T. I have used them at different times both personally and through work. If I had gone with T-Mobile I would have had a lower rate, more data usage, and my phone would have been unlocked at 14 days. I believe I was scammed on this one. I believe AT&T needs to do the right thing and retain they employees so bad information like never happens again.
I do want to stay with AT&T, but I want me phone unlocked as promised.
At&t keeps going up with their prices and keep giving me the run around with the type of plan I have, one sale person said I have a month to month, then a other saleperson said it's a year plan. when I call to close my account, at&t want to charge with me $90.00 because I am flee up with their price change.
Called to review purchase of I phone 5s 12.1GB ( charged 650 and was told that was the price at that time). However another sales representative said that price was associated with the the 32GB 5s. So no real explanation for the difference in cost was explained and no resolution. Also a sudden increase (63$) in my bundle service occurred and the explanation was given a promotion expired. To help reduce new rate another promotion was offered that still increased monthly bill (34$). I said that wouldn't work and was placed on hold to speak with an account specialist after 20 minutes I hung up thoroughly dissatisfied. Customer for almost 20 years.
I received two monthly bills stating that I owed nothing for my ATT Uverse account. I had just switched and moved and so I did not think anything of this since I had payments that were pending. Then the next month I receive a bill for not only the billing month but the previous two months with an "apology" that the billing department had made an error and I now had these charges to answer to. This is fraud and is not correct. I will be addressing this with my attorney in that I have two bills that state I owe nothing for that time period and now I have a bill stating that I have charges from those two billing cycles. I should not have to pay for your inability to run a business correctly.
I called into customer service today regarding my phone service being suspended. I was given several different stories by two different people as to why my first bill was so high. The third person i got was a supervisor in escalation. I explained to her as well as the two previous agents that i was at work and i have two disabled children i cannot speak in detail about whats going on can we set up payment for Friday march 27 2015 and i will call this evening and we can talk in depth about what is going on. The escalation female i spoke with who claimed her name was Michelle after refusing to give me her name said she couldn't do anything for me until i made a payment. I told her i could not till Friday she said there was nothing she could do for me. I told her to turn my phone back on and she said sorry cant do that.
I said then transfer me to someone who can and she said ill transfer you to the Spanish department and i told her you actually admitting to transferring me to the wrong department because im upset and your mad because im mad i said your in customer service u cant talk to me like that u can get fired she said no i wont no one will do anything to me. She said other very rude and mean things that i cannot remember because i am at work trying to concentrate and this has really affected my whole entire day. I have not received any notice that my bill was due by phone fax text email or regular mail. I do ot appreciate the way all of you representatives talked to me and i will tell every family member i have about how awful at&t is. I have revert been treated so badly and unprofessionally in my life.
All of this is because some one at ATT disconnected SCADA data lines that have to be in compliance with NERC/FRCC/DOE, and fines can be levied at my company for mistakes made by ATT?!? The (3) pending circuit installs have been designed. Central Office cards are being expedited and will not be in until late Wednesday. Orders will be dispatched Thursday. As of an hour ago, I was unable to locate the orders in your express ticketing system. This may not be the case now, but at that time the order had a due date of 3/30. It was also pending dispatch and had not been picked up by a tech. This is where my disconnect comes in at. I can appreciate all hands on deck to resolve this, so let’s show due diligence and someone up the chain please call me with answers. I have turned down many circuits and not removed translations or reassign OE’S the same day. New policy maybe? How this happened is not the matter. What does it take to get this fixed before COB today?
Yes, So I have my At&t phone a little over four months and im getting messages 20 minutes later, my calls aren't showing up and it shuts down by itself... fix my problem ?
In my opinion customer serve at ATT has gone downhill BIG TIME, I dealt with Bill from Rochester NY, a customer service rep, found him to be nasty and rude so I asked to speak with a supervisor, he down right refused my request and said he could help me, I than insisted on speaking to a supervisor and he told me NO he will not transfer me to one. he sia he could help I told him that he didn't help me yet. Comcast had bad ratings on their customer service well I think Comcast got rid of their bad seeds and ATT hired them. I had Epix, the rep told me I didn't have to pay because I had the 450 package, well find out it was a promotion and find I'm paying for it. They say one thing and then do something else. Mind you all the do is show OLD movies and charge you for it, their programing is terrible, I get the movies from Red Box, they are current and cheap to rent, to rent a movie from ATT is $6:00 for something current.
I have AT&T UVERSE phone, tv, &internet, two times this week they went out. About two weeks ago after having my tv interrupted off and on all winter a technician came out did some rewiring and changed my modem. This has not solved the problem. I am about ready to change carriers from AT&T.
I have been a customer with AT&T for over a year . Almost 5 months ago I was promise a reward card for up grading ..... the funny thing is I NEVER GOT THE AWARD CARD and have been giving the run around with AT&T every since. Now if i held my payment for over 5 months I would have been cut off. They have every excuse in the world as to why the card have not came and even went as far as saying the mail man is keeping it ... FUNNY - I get a monthly bill with no ISSUES
at&t i have two cell phones i always pay my bill every month. i dropped my phone no. and the glass cracked. i contacted at&t about and they told me to contact my insurance to see if i had coverage, which i did, they told me they would replace me with another phone and they would send me a return box to return it in.they told me that there was a deductible of 149.00 dollars. they told me they would it to my account.when the receive the phone that was to be repaired. i found out that i could have my regular phone repaired much cheaper.i contacted them before the deadline and told them i was returning their new phone because i made arrangement to have my old phone repaired because i had gotten use of it the told me when they receive the phone they would not add it to my account, they had already received the new phone and the insurance co.added the 149.00 dollars to my account. which came to 275.00 dollars. i cannot pay 275.00 dollars on my account. i told them i would pay my regular bii when due,and will not pay the 149.00 dollars the insurance added to my account.they did not repair my old phone.they want me to pay the 149.00 dollars and within 90 days they will refund me. at&t told me if i don't pay it they will charge me late charges. that's not fair.
My husband has terminal Brain cancer and we live on a very limited budget. I was with a different carrier and wanted to find a better cheaper plan! I called AT&T and spoke with a present at seven she assured me that she could get me a better plan for less money she also told me that they were having a promo and I would you see the hundred dollar credit for each phone. That there would be a one time fee of 40$ to connect my phone lines but that it would be dropped because I was getting the 200$ credit for the two phones. And my monthly bill would only be 105$ (30$ cheaper than I was paying at the other carrier) I thought wow great deal! Then I got my bill and it was 250$ nothing was credited as a matter of a fact they couldn't even find a promo and if there was one it wouldn't be added to my account for 10 weeks! That's not what i was told in the beginning but since I couldn't even find a promo and her notes I wouldn't be credited that anyway! On top of that my bill monthly would be 125$! I asked to speak to a supervisor but have yet to be able to! I feel very taken advantage of. I came to this company expecting better service. And I've only been disappointed lied to and handed a large bill that I can NOT afford to pay!
I am sending this email due to a problem concerning my cell phone.i dropped my cell phone in january 2015 and broke the front glass. i contacted the insurance co.they told me i was covered but the deductable would be 149.00 dollars and would be added to my regular account, i thought about and said ok.so they sent me a new phone and it was not like my phone.so i checked arround and decided to get it fixed a a lower price. so i made contact and told them i decided to get it repaired. so they told me to send the new phone back in the returned box the sent the new phone in and they would take the 149.00 dollars off my account.they have received the phone long time before my account was due.so they sent me a bill of 275.00 dollars. they added the 149.00 dollars to my regular account,and i cannot pay that amount.i always pay my bill on time. the insurance co.has the returned phone. at&t tells they want me to pay the 275.00 dollars or they will charge me 5.00 dollars late charges every 5 days.i like a&t services,i cannot pay 275.00 dollars,i will pay my regular bill on time. we all are trying to survive.
Returned a cellphone for a warranty replacement and it was returned with a crack on the screen and the back cover pried off. You can see the tool marks by the SIM card slot. AT&T refused to honor the warranty and denied removing the back cover. Tried multiple times to get this resolved and they wont budge. If you ever have a warranty issue I would try and find a place local that you can take it to because if something happens after you ship it you will be stuck with a $420 bill.
That rollover data plan, doesn't really rollover. Not all that you have left over at the end of the month. Then the customer service rep tells me what I'm looking at on the phone is not accurate. So I had her tell me what she saw as accurate at the moment and I figured it out from what I saw on my phone, while on the phone, and my phone is acurate. So she referred me to next months bills. So many problems with AT&T
As a contractor I need to schedule a late payment after confirming a date with a representative a day later my service was suspended. I was hung up on twice (no I was not cussing).had I knew they couldn't arrange a late payment I would have made other arrangements. I feel like when they want me to upgrade they are sooooo nice but if I need help the customer service SUCKS . ANYWAY after 7 year so I am changing to verizon.i got lied to and ....well that just doesn't sit right with me.
I was having problems receiving and making phone calls on my iPhone. I contacted AT&T to inquire what the problem was. I had the misfortune of getting on the other line the worst customer service person, ever ... his name is Juan Lawrence. His attitude was basically " ... so what if you have a problem" He was totally disinterested and disconnected from the entire conversation, and he practically dared me to switch providers. It was a horrible experience ! I had never in my entire life had a conversation with such a pathetic worthless customer service provider.AT&T, you just lost a loyal customer.
My daughter and I are At&t customers since 2006 I believe and honestly speaking had unpleasant situations with at&t ever since every few months there's a situation.: However this latest situation have been the worst thus far. I ordered a Samsung s 5 on Saturday February 28th. March 2nd I called to find out the status of the order. I was told by a Representative that the terms and condition wasn't accepted I went on line to accept the terms for the second time. called back to at&t spoke to a associate who said the same thing that the terms weren't accepted I said to the rep that I did and after I excepted the terms a box I believe appear in red writing that said I already excepted it This has been going on for going on three weeks. On Monday March 9th I spoke yet again to the at&t associate I explain to her every thing that has occur these past weeks. She in turn said to me that I didn't have to wait for the online order that continue to say pending I could go into the at&t store and get the phone after I cancel the online order. I took her suggestion and receive the phone
The at&t associate never told me that by going into the store that the price would change While in the store I called online with the help of at&t associate I cancel the order The rep also spoke to the online associate and ask for him to do something I forget what so that she can place the order . what ever it was needed to be done before she could continue with my order. I was charge an activation fee being that I didn't do the transaction on line I was also told by a associated that I could try to call and speak to the supervisor at the location where I brought the phone and ask if she could wave the activation fee I did that spoke to a gentleman who said his name was diamond He was suppose to give the supervisor my number so that she could call me back She was business at the time when I called I can't remember the young ladies name although I have that information on a piece of paper at home. I never received a call .
I called at&t for the last time today March 12, 2015 the associate I spoke said that the order wasn't cancel I paid for the taxes that needed to be paid in order to get the phone, with my credit card and I haven't received my funds as of today 3/12/15 Honesty speaking I should have found another provider after all the negative situations I've had with AT& T thus far. I've done everything I could do to resolve this matter I hope some one from this corporate office will help me resolve this matter and return my money.
MY at&t uverse box shorted my LG TV main board HDMI ports, Will my TV be repaired. The unit in question was replaced.
I bought a Android phone in February 2015 . It is March 2015 . On March 11, 2015 I was making dinner set the phone down on the counter to fix dinner . After dinner I went back and picked it up off the counter and went to use it . All I saw was lines jumping on the screen . I powered it down and brought it back up and it was fine again,. two minutes later the lines were back . I got in my car and drove to the nearest AT&T store for customer service to see what happened . The sales representative told me it looks like I should set it down more secure . He told me to buy a better secure phone . '
He said it might have a glitch in it . Let it set for a couple days to see if it will stop . The lines are jumping worse . It is a TO GO PHONE . I am very upset and not happy how this was handled . The representatives do not pay no attention and give quality service because it is a TO GO PHONE AND NOT A CONTRACT ! I do not understand that , I pay a monthly bill to AT&T just like everyone else does . AT&T are getting money from me just like everybody else is . He thinks it has a glitch in it and if it doesnt go away to buy another phone . Are you kidding me I just bought it a month ago. I can not run back and buy another phone cause it has a glitch in it !
I initially acquired AT&T U-verse 450 back in July of 2011 with the first month and installation paid in advance ($391.66). I dropped the U-verse TV but kept the Internet and Telephone in May of 2013 ($100.63). I returned all of the rented equipment AT&T supplied for the TV service. I received a refund for the portion of the TV's month that I didn't use but not the month in advance that I'd initially paid. I continued to get request from AT&T to restart my TV service with them for $29.00 for 12 months for basic service.
On 09/10/2014 I talked with an AT&T Associate named Elyssa whereby she signed me up to switch back to U-verse TV and said that my U-verse Package of Internet, Telephone and U-verse 450 TV would be $184.00 per month, not including taxes and fees. AT&T Technician "Sharonda" came out to install my TV equipment and was surprised to see that my house was already set up for AT&T and all she had to do was switch out DIRECTV Boxes for AT&T's." Sharonda spent about twenty minutes switching out the boxes and adjusting the sets, two hours talking to my wife and I and then another hour and a half sitting in her truck.
My new bill arrived and I was floored, $608.65. There were one time fees totaling $247.00 plus one month advance fees again! I now have two wireless access points sitting atop my computer desk wired in series. AT&T ripped me off and refuses to consider that I've been defrauded.
They are the biggest manipulators and are able to rip you off like if there's nothing wrong with that. I went into the store and needed and weren't able to give me any information or help me out in any way. They have no idea what they are doing.
I have been experiencing reception difficulties since day one of my contract. After complaining to my local AT&T store the sales rep installed another "chip" which in his words would improve the reception. He also commented that if this "chip" didn't help they (at&t) probably have to do some upgrades to the cell tower. I live north of the reception tower. when i called to again complain about the reception or the lack there of the sales person flipped it back on me. Why have i continued my contract with them for the past 2 years without pursuing the reception issue? So she also told me that reception in my area is a "2". That's what the problem is. If that was a problem from the onset why wasn't i informed of it?
She did offer a fix - a mechanism to enhance the reception quality thru my dsl at a purchase price of $150.00. (there is a $75.00 rebate). So because i have lousy reception and didn't continue to complain the solution is a cost of $75.00 to me because at&t cannot provide the reception i can't get and was not aware of in the beginning. Really? There a 3 places in my house that i can get a signal - the bathroom (on the toilet), my downstairs at my computer desk and my nightstand in the upstairs bedroom. I was so frustrated this morning that i told the sales girl i couldn't talk to her and hung up the phone. Don't treat me like it's my fault. Honesty from the onset would have been nice. How is charging someone extra for services you cannot provide the customers responsibility? Have been with at&t 27 years.
I decided to go with AT&T two months ago. I bought an I phone 6 plus. The store is 1000 S. Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa Florida, 33629. The person who sold me was Luis Lopez. We both speak English and Spanish, so, believe me no room for mistake. I was sure that I made all the questions and I understood everything, considering that nowadays they charge you for everything.He was very nice, but turned out to be lied right on my face.
1- the phone wouldn't charge, went to store told him about it. Can't do anything! Apple Store would take care of everything, no questions ask, they would give you a new one. NEVER, it took different visits,and they finally got it working for me ( one day old phone and they had nothing to do with it)
2- convince me to take a tablet home, free try for 14 days,no charge except 10 dollars monthly if I keep it. Did not even open it return it on the 10th day. My first bill came, with a charge of 40 dollars for the tablet, NEVER KNEW, there was a 40 dollar fee for the tablet connection in addition to the 10 dollar monthly..worse non- refundable. They saw in the record I returned it on time, but it did not matter. Luis, lied to me. I spent so much time in AT&T phone to get credit for it, they did finally.
3- now I received my 2nd bill and turns out to be Luis lied to me again, I got a plan 5 dollars monthly for International call to Peru and the minute is 1cent. Why not ? said Luis, For 1 cent you call to Peru, it is a great one!!. So I signed for plan. Now that I checked my bill 58 dollars in International calls, they charged me 25 cents per minute instead of 1 cent. I have spent so much of my time in customer service AGAIN. They would not take responsibility, they credit me 25 dollars but not the 58.
I am so done with them! It is so sad that a company like this, cannot be reliable, accountable, honest, trusted. It is deceiving . I want my money back!! You lied to me.
My complaint is that on feb 7th the infinity NASCAR car race was shown on fox sports one but someone at at&t figured we would rather watch people throwing darts rather watching the NASCAR race.which I cannt believe anyone would do. We got this service because it was going to show all the NASCAR races all year. The three top divisions of NASCAR were to be shown on fox one or fox two Along with certain ARCA races. So please explain to me why you did this and dont tell me it wasnt available because it was to the dish networks you people chose to not show it and I am very upset with you..Now is this going to continue? I will not watch darts come on give me a break how much does darts bring to you? I bet the ratings were not very high. So do I have to change to another network for phone internet and TV? I am sure that I am not the only one upset with you.
I been a customer with AT&T for almost 2 years and I do not appreciate and am not satisfied with the phone I purchased back in December 2014. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is not operable at all times and is not functioning and calling when I want it to. This phone is JUNK! I know this phone may have insurance on it but I prefer to get another phone as a credit that I can pay its money worth monthly. I would like to escalate this issue to a supervisor or your corporate because I been having issues with your faulty device that is not worth paying for. I will be in touch with a rep tomorrow and try to get this issue taken care of unless someone can contact me right away. This phone has been giving me a huge headache and problems because this phone will not function. How am I supposed to talk to someone or do something on my phone if it doesn’t work? This phone is accident free its just your performance and quality of the phone that makes it CRAP! I will be waiting for someone to contact me.
First I registered at a $28 rate for U-Verse internet. The very first month I was charged $66.50, to which they absolutely would not return my money but held it as "credit", which could then only be applied after 3 billing cycles(!). For the next 6 months I was charged $56 (DOUBLE) what I should be paying and I had to constantly call the company and request my payment reduction, something that took an hour and a half each time. Finally, when I thought I got the credit applied to my account, the contract was renewed without my authorization for another year. The month after I was charged for the previous bill (which should have been paid for with the credit) and the current month plus penalties. Beautiful.
After another 2 hours on the phone and going through 3 people who simply could not understand the 5th grade math, I finally managed to find someone very useful who fixed up my account. Never again will I do business with ATT.
I called at&t regarding my bill. It seemed a lot higher this month. (approx. 100.00). I paid $200.00 on 3/4 of my bill and called 3/5 @ 12:00 approx. to find out the extra charges. One extra charge I was told was $59.00 for activation fee for tablet. I was never informed of activation fee. I was told my bill would be reviewed and receive a call back in 30 minutes. Never received a call. Text came thru at 5:30pm saying my account would be credited $40.00 (which I do appreciate) but, no explanation what $40.00 was. I called at&t told that activation fee was waived for my tablet $40.00( activation fee $59.00?). I called again and spoke with Cierra Brown going over my bill and talking about prorated fees. Kept asking if I understood or is this too confusing for me. Asked her not to talk to me like I was the dumb one. I have never complained to at&t before. I have always been treated very nice in the past and appreciative of that. I have been a customer for at least 15 to 18 years of more. I did not appreciate the way this was handled or spoken to. Usually receive a text asking to rate my phone calls and how I was treated not this time? (have always in the past gave very good feed back).
3-6-15 I had to make phone to AT&T in FEB, and now in March due to fact that an AT&T agent changed my plan without my authorization. I had called in Feb to inquire about the account charges, she told me it was due to the tax rate. She then questioned me if want a phone, I said no that will increase my bill,then she tried another option, I said that will also increase my bill. I then told here I trying to decrease my bill. She then said she could give me discounted rate on my next two months bills, I said fine. In March I received my bill and my U-verse tv plan from 300 to the 450 plan. I never agreed or was asked to change my plan which increase my bill aroung $50. So, I called Friday 914 am. 3-16-2015 to have it changed back the agent said there were notes, and I told her I dont care what notes were in my file I never authorized the in Feb to make changes to my account. This agent should not be allowed to make changed my account on her behalf. Im pissed off know because I have to pay 131.61 instead the 86.11 I normally pay every month. If anything I should get a discount for paying ontime, yall dont have a discount for that do ya.
I am writing in reference to the ending balance of $277.40. I have called three times, and of course, cannot understand the representatives. During the December call, the representative was to research the account and get back to me…never heard back from her. This week, I was on the phone one hour trying to resolve this issue but unfortunately was not able to. During this call, the first representative did not have a clue about anything and I could not understand her English. After 30 minutes with no resolution, I asked to speak to her supervisor so she transferred me to her supervisor in California. Again, I could not understand the supervisor, and of course, supervisor did not have a clue how to resolve issue at hand.
At 5:58 p.m. when it was time for her shift to end, she transferred me to “payments” without informing the payroll representative or myself that she was transferring my call. So within this one hour phone call, I was transferred three times, explaining the situation three times, and of course, the payroll representative could not assist me because she only takes payments. This is so ridiculous that AT&T has lost its customer service level of integrity. In the past, AT&T always had superb customer service, which has always been the reason I have maintained accounts with AT&T; however, this will no longer be the case. I have been with AT&T for over 10 years.
The above mentioned account was effective April, 2014. I terminated the account on November 26/28, 2014 because I was moving in with a friend who already had service. My final statement reflects 11 months of early termination fees, which is not accurate. All three representatives have agreed I should not be charged with 11 months BUT NONE have the knowledge or the tenacity to investigate and resolve the problem. It is easier to say they will call back, transfer the call, or disconnect our call. I would like some resolution to this situation so I can move on. I would appreciate feedback or a phone call from a representative who can speak English and rectify the problem.
They keep on charging me the wrong amount I would of only have to pay29.99 for this month if adjustment was made to me account somebody isn't doing their job I a very angry customer every month I have to agure with them about my bill they keep charging me more and more each month if you guys can't get my bill right I just going Togo with some body else because into going to keep telling where you are charging way over board
This is by far the very worst company out there. I broke up with AT&T a few years ago. I used them for my home and mobile communications and after 12 plus years and in the end they just robbed me. I could kick myself now for forgiving them and giving them another chance to do business with them. This time I got screwed over even worse. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, Run from this company before they snatch your purse. I did not sign up for a contract, nor did I want a commitment, and expressed that at the time of purchase. I was told that I would not have a commitment, so I decided to give them a shot again in hopes that they would treat me as a valued customer.
Setting up my service was a nightmare and they billed me over $300 when i was told there was no fee to turn on my phone line. When I disconnected my service AT&T informed me over the phone that I would not have any disconnection fees (I checked). I should have known they would send me a huge bill regardless of what they said (close to $400 and that was not even the final bill). I called to complain, was very kind, but they could careless about you or myself. They are white collar thieves looking to swipe your wallet. I was told by the rep that they had sent me a letter that basically states we are allowed to rob you for any reason when and if you decide to use our service(s). Please run, there are better companies out there, AT&T is no longer the an American company, they are a terrorist company. I am actually embarrassed that I chose to do business with them.
I have two accounts, have had for years. I couldn't understand why the amount was so different for each bill. I question the billing, AT&T was charging $21.00 on one bill for long distance service and 10.69 on the other. When ask why, i was told because we didn't have our services local and log distance tie together. I told them we did and had it for about 3 years. I was told they would start a investigation on it. I receive this bill still being charged the $21.00 for long distance. Also there was no way the math added up for that bill on services. It was explained to me in broken English the fuzzy math. There is no break down on the bill. I feel the numbers are put on the bill hopping you will not look too close. I hate calling AT&T to question any bill. I can't understand the person working there. I think that's what they want , to wear you down so you will just give up. Other than my phone internet service is $39.00 and the other account internet service is $42.37 a difference of $3.37. They should be the same. There again i don't understand why one internet service is different from the other. I think most people don't have two accounts that come to the same place where they can compare. I think AT&T with their fuzzy math is ripping all of us off.
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.
I set payment agreement to be drafted out my account .I call and talk to customers service to stop the drafted because the money would not be in the account.but I told customer service I would go into a the AT&T store and pay the money .I pay the money at the store I call customer service and said I pay the 565.29 that I agree to don't draft my account the is not there customers sad ok miss.

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 have been w/ATT for morethan 10yrs,family plan,I helped my cousins family to get their own family plan w/ATT using my account info.I had 5 lines on my old account, and my cousin who had her 3 cell phone on my other new account for less than 2yrs.1 line is addressed to my house ( the old account ) and the newest account to my cousin's address, we pay separately.I had her oldest daughter cell bill come to my house and my daughter in law's cell phone bill go to her house. So we went to ATT sales office here in Forest Dr. Columbia , SC. we were told, my 1st account where my cousin's daughter cell phone bill goes,is very old,while my the other account is very new , the only way to swap the 2 cell phone billing address is to have my old account be current, updated. We asked if there were charges involved , the representative said no, we are just making your account curent, swapping the cell numbers and the mailing address for the bills. All the transaction happened at the store, we were not told of any charges , no bills nor new written agreement signed nor given. As I called ATT tonight to inquire about adding new line , I was told I owe ATT more than 400.00 dollars due to having new account, that i have dropped my old account and I have to call the collection agency to settle the money . This is not true , all we did was transferred one line to the other address and another line to my address for billing purposes due to my daughter in law living w/ us, and my cousins daughter living w/ her mothers address. The ATT representative was so unprofessional,RUDE,her name "Rebecca Quillan"( not sure last name)",she did not let me explain,she called me " impostor" when I told her I did speak w/ ATT rep so many times , but nothing in reference to this. They said I dropped all my 5 cell phone lines to get a new account and i am now getting penalized for dropping all my lines.We still have the same cell #'s,plan
Been waiting over a month and nobody can or will help me get a phone that I want. And it's just a talk and text phone. No internet! I am sick and tired of people not wanting to help valued customers. Been with ATT since 2006 and this is the worst I have been treated. Called 6 stores and nobody had the LG xpression. One store found and got it in 48 hours but I couldn't pick it up right away, I WORK! But they refused to hold it over 24 hours after I've waited over a month! This is customer service? I tried calling to order it online and nobody knew how to do it online. I was on the phone with them for over 30 minutes because they could'nt figure out why I could'nt get the discounted price. After being transferred to different people and being put on hold numerous times. I finally got pissed and hung up. They were nice but not trained properly. I am starting to shop around for a different carrier. I'm done fighting and nobody seems to care or want to help.
We have been receiving an average of 3 calls per day to our home phone. The caller ID identifies the caller as ATT. The number is 512-518-6962. I have answered the call and so has my wife on two different occasions and asked them not to call back. The caller identified herself as AT&T long distance service, trying to get us to switch our long distance plan. We have cellular phones and have no use for a long distance plan. I want the harrasment to stop. If something is not done, we will be looking at changing providers for our cell phones, home phone and internet service.
Really AT&T??? Really?!?! I ordered services for my land line and Internet on November 17th to be installed on November (Monday) 26th between 2pm and 5pm. I received a text message on the 21st asking me to confirm the same date and time and I did. I received a 2nd text message on the 23rd requesting another confirmation of the date and time. I confirmed it again. Then came Monday, November 26th... Waited, waited, waited... No one showed. Called the number I was given when I ordered my bundle and checked with the automated system. The system confirmed that yes, my service was scheduled for Monday, November 26th between 2pm and 5pm and since it was after 5pm the service should have already been completed. I make my appropriate selection to speak with a representative and hold on the line. A man answered speaking very broken English. I could barely understand him and had to ask him to repeat himself several times. He told me that in his system my installation date was for Tuesday, November 27th between 8am and 11am. I informed him his system was incorrect and that I received two texts messages on two different dates confirming my date and time and even the automated system has the correct date and time. He argued with me that I was incorrect and that those dates and times were just my activation dates. I told him no, I spoke with a live person when I scheduled this and that those dates and times were confirmed many times over as my installation dates. He continued to argue with me so I requested to speak to a manager. He told me he was with another customer and I told him I would hold. After several minutes of back and forth, him telling me his supervisor was busy, me telling him I understood that part and I would hold anyway, I was finally placed on "hold" to speak to a supervisor. The line disconnected when I was placed on "hold." I immediately called back and spoke to another man, who also did not speak English that well, and I gave him a short version of my problem and asked for a supervisor and was connected. The supervisor, also speaking very broken English, repeated the same incorrect information as the previous gentleman and basically told me my only option was to reschedule. Not pleased but needing my services I complied. I made my original call at 4:45pm. I was transferred from call center to call center, department to department and placed on hold by SEVEN... SEVEN different people, not one person spoke English well, between 4:45pm and 7:50pm attempting to reschedule only to have the last person I spoke with ask me to repeat my last name just to find out they weren't even dealing with the correct account. Even though I repeated my information several different times, I guess the language barrier from not speaking nor understanding English that well had something to do with them not understanding the information I was giving them. The last person I spoke with had me on hold so long that she finally took my number and said she would call me back. She never did. The next morning, bright and early, at 7:45am I start my phone calls again. It took until 10:15am to finally get my installation rescheduled for Wednesday, November 28th AFTER 3pm. I get home from work at 1:55pm and on my door is a note from the technician that he was sorry he had missed me. The phone number he was given to contact me was incorrect (language barrier???). I called him back and he said he was at another customers house waiting for her to get home because they had given him, you're gonna love this, the WRONG TIME... He said he would do everything he could to get back to me today because this happens all the time and he doesn't understand why the call canters always screw up dates and times. Perhaps it's the breakdown in communication because these people don't even speak English. Outsourcing may be cheaper but it is NOT very efficient. I received a 2nd phone call from the technician and he said I had to call AT&T back again because now they had placed a hold on my installation because I missed our appointment time, which was not our appointment time at all. I refuse, I REFUSE to go through another several hours of transferring and holding to get the service I requested. I did call, however, to cancel my request as I will be using Verizon. You should strongly consider sending a quality control team to whatever country you have outsourced your call centers to and see if they can assist your call center employees in un-wedging their heads from inside of their asses. I apologize for the language but you tell me a more fitting wording and I will edit my comment. I have NEVER had an experience like this in my life. I have moved all over Texas and Louisiana and set up many phone lines and Internet lines and cable in my adult life and have NEVER dealt with such incompetence. I would never recommend AT&T for home or office service to anyone.
I became an ATT customer in 1994 and until yesterday I was very satisfied. I was told last October 1st, 2011 to call to renew my account and the time not used in 2011 would be carried over to 2012. I called 9:30 a.m Oct 1st 2012 to add $100.00 to my account, and I was advised that I was 2 hrs short
air time so the $74.00 was terminated from my 2011 account. I tried to talk to a supervisor and to no avail. I was told nothing could be done to adjust my account. No one advised me there was a time on Oct 1st that I had to call by to keep the $74.00 and roll it over towards 2012. I am a senior citizen living on a fixed income and to lose $74.00 because of 2 hrs is a great injustice on your part to a long time customer. Hope to hear from you soon regarding this situation
Our wireless Internet had slowly been decreasing in reliability and power. We used to be able to run a PlayStation 3 and all our computers with no problem. But now the Internet connection is about as strong as a price of grass. It drops connection and when we do have connection it is fucking awful. Now it is your job to provide us what we pay for. And we have not had any change in payment. So unless you can boost our service or cut down what we pay, I demand reimbursement from you idiot providers. And don't give me that bullshit in saying that you can not provide us with any better service, because the streets next to us have better service. Again, fix this damn problem or Give Us our money back because frankly this is awful customer service and it rediculous to treat your customers who have been with you for 4 years like the shit you are treating us like.
Sincerely, a pissed off customer
like everyone else I harassed by unwanted sales phone calls. Now we also cannot easily hang up. As you know you have introduced a new feature that prevents a hang up until the call is completed by the calling machine.
This is not tollerable. I am forced to just throw the phone on the floor and check later to see if my line is available. If you cannot fix this NEW fiasco you will loose much public admiration, and customers (me) . 760 5919043
19 attempts, yes 19 attempts. My problem is still happening. When it rains I have no line or service. This has been going on since Sept 8. All the customer service reps give the same BS about being sorry and I understand crap. Bottom line, they do not listen. An executive should go "UNDERCOVER" and see what it is like to be a customer. Sh*t, I'm an employee of 30 years and have interests in this company. Now when people tell me their encounters, I beleive them. That is why AT&T's stock is doing crappy.
If I wasn't getting a discount (soon to be $50 a month) I would cancel service. Actually the discount is not worth the agravation. Besides, Verizon are the people who own the lines and come out to repair them. I think that VERIZON does not care about AT&T's customers and hopes that they will switch to their services. If I owned a company like this I would surf the web for deflamation articles so I could prevent crap like this from happening. I was just called from an AT&T esculations manager and they insured me a repair by tonight. I serious doudt it. This is the 19th complaint that I have had. I'll give it another week, then I'll make a decision.
If I had more cash I would take out a whole page article in the newspaper detailing my problems. However, AT&T does not allow its employees to speak to the media. I hope someone could get a hold of the CEO, CFO, VP AVP and whoever has clout or interests in making sure their company excels. This is CUSTOMER SERVICE WEEK. Soon they can eliminate that event from the calender because they wont have any customers left. Crap, I already changed cell phone carriers, the home phone may be next. AT&T WAKE UP..
On Dec 2, 2011 I received a phone call around 4:45pm at my job from an AT&T technician stating that he was calling to confirm a work order to move our internet and phone service to the office next door to ours. I told him that I was not aware that we were moving our service, so I had him to contact the business owner about this. The owner told the technician that we were not moving our service. This was on a Friday. The next week by Tuesday we found that we did not have internet service. Coincidentally we were also having computer problems and our computer was being serviced, so that is why we did not find out until Tues.
The business owner called AT&T. After waiting (forever)to speak to a human, he explained what had happened. He was given the runaround, put on hold and told that they would fix the problem. The next day, same thing. This went on every other day, being told they would fix the problem and nothing.
Finally on Dec 16, 2011 the technician who had called originally on Dec 2 finally showed up at 4:50 pm (Friday) and stated that he could not do anything because he had to have the phone room unlocked. (Did he mention this when he spoke with the owner earlier? No.) On this day we also lost phone service. This tech was at a loss as to what the problems might be. He said he would return Mon himself so that he could fix the problem. Result. No tech. Three of us from our office called AT&T and got nowhere. Just more runaround, put on hold, and promises to come "tomorrow".
So our business has been without service since Dec 2, AT&T says their records show that we have service. I guess we must if their records show it. Never mind the fact that we can not use internet or phone. What does it take to get through to these people? We have not been able to conduct business and losing money because these people just keep giving us the runaround. We are in the process now of switching to a different company for internet and phone, but that is still going to take another 5 to 7 days.
DEAT SIR OR MA'AM,
I was deeply upset with your company. I was a loyal AT&T Customer for several years. In 2012 we experienced several months of service interruption and sometimes it was days without phone service. I am a Law Enforcement Officer and was without phone service and possibly impeded on my employment. I was satisfied that your company attempted to satisfy us with refunding us some monetary amounts. Several employees for your company were very helpful in assisting us as we were not happy. It saddens me that your company advises that the phone contacts are recorded and while we were advised that we were not going to be able to be refunded any more for the service interruptions. My wife and I inquired about ending our contract, not that we wanted to, but that I was not able to go without phone service, while I live in the city, well within range. An AT&T Customer Service person advised that we would be able to end our contract with AT&T without paying the termination fee. So this is what occured, and then we don't recieve any paperwork in the mail, until we receive paperwork from a collection agency stating allost $1000.00 including several hundreds of dollars for termination fees. My wife called and spoke with another AT&T Customer Service person who we advised the entire situation, this person then transferred my wife to a manager, whom advised her that they would look into the recorded phone call from our termination call. This manager advised to give her one week and then they would be in touch with us, and that AT&T would honor what the manager had said. Over a week passed and my wife called back speaking with another AT&T Customer Service person, having to explain the situation then being transferred to yet another manager, whom advised that not all calls are recorded, but only randomly recorded. This Manager advised that the company would not honor the non charge of termination fee as these are automatically charged. Now we were forced to pay approximately $1000.00 dollars becuase your company did not honor what you said.
Again, I am a Police Officer and feel that being treated like this is not ethically right. We would have not ended our service if the fees were not going to be waived.
I understand that we owed for some service but feel that we should not have been charged the termination fees. Times are tough enough and i do not appreciate your companies dishonesty.
I will voice my opinion about AT&T with not only people in my community but throughout my family and network of friends. A cell phone is a mandatory tool for a police officer and i feel that your company should record all phone calls so you can not use the absence of phone calls to your advantage.
I would also appreciate anything that can be done about any attempt to right this with me.

Thank You for Any Assistance,
I cancelled my business line in July 2012. I am still receiving a phone bill for service although I haven't been with them since July.After numerous phone calls , I was assured they would finish putting through the cancellation. As of today, Oct 25th, 2012, I am still receiving bills for a phone service that I dont have anymore with at&t.I have spent much time and hours on the phone trying to clear this matter up.What does it take to get a supervisor to correct this problem?
We received 7 unwanted phone calls this past week from some "card services - Rachel". We are sick of getting these calls weekly which have gone on for the past year or so. Either you do something about this annoyance or we are going to quit having our land-line telephone and go strictly with our cell phone. We have punched "3" until we are blue in the face or punched "1" and tried to talk to the representative and they just hang up on us. We are at the end of the line with these calls.
I purchased the bundle package over the phone. The technician installed it and was more complicated to operate than described originaly. Then I canceled the order and wanted to return to the previous package I had with them. Since then I have been without televison since November 16th and without telephone since yesterday. There is a total disregard for the affect it has on me. I am 91 years old and live alone and must have a telephone for emergencies. I can get no answer as to when service will be restored.
been trying to get my phone number from a previous carrier switched to AT&T. I have been told several different things on transferring the number. one person tells me they have sent in a request for the number several time and when i call the old carrier, they say they didn't get the request. on Friday [nov. 3] AT&T sent another request for the number and told me to go ahead and cancel the number. today i called to see why my phone is still not working and was told i wasn't suppose to cancel the service with the old carrier. this has been going on since nov. 29. all i get is the run around. once again i am on the phone with AT&T trying to get this mess straightened out.
To whom it may concern,
Hello, my name is Krishna, and I have been your customer for quite a few years. I am do frustrated with this issue that is not getting resolved. I have spoken to many customer representatives yet not getting any where. About a month and a half back I had called to inquire on billing issues and I also dropped a question on paperless billing since the recording kept advertising while I was on hold. I had no intention of going paperless but asked can a person have access to all the bills for all 12 months of the year? Her respond was "six months". So that was the end of it because I like to keep my bills for a year, just incase if I might need it. I must tell you she was very helpful, she even helped me to with the plan, we had increased minutes since my husband kept going over the limit. Next day I followed my instincts and called back to make sure there were no changes except the plan that I had chosen. This time it was a guy, he texted me four digit code and made me repeat to it to ensure the security. After that I stopped receiving bills, not to mention my bill was so high, yet I paid it and he informed me that I had gone paperless thus I explained it him and told him that I never gave permission. He promised me that he changed it back and he would mail me the bill. I was told it would take 5-7 days to receive it and would not charge for it. Since than I have called informing that I still have not received the bill. Tonight I finally spoke to a supervisor, Rocky Trevino id # RT391D. I also taped the conversation, which he was informed about it. I told him my dilemma with not receiving bills. He said he would open up a case to investigate why I am not receiving bills. He said "I should set up an payment arrangement to keep it from getting my service disrupted". This is very disturbing, my account has always been current, my due date(per rocky) is the 25th of December. I still have not received my bill and he wants me to pay it? If not then the service would be disconnected? I am sure there are better, efficient ways to help customers. In seven years I have had three experiences of bad customer service. So to say, majority of time, they have been very professional and helpful. At this point, I am litteraly feeling being conned and taken advantage of .
A person must look at customers's history and know and show how valuable the customers are with resolving one's problems and concerns properly.
I would like to get this resolved ASAP, today is the dec 20,12 and my bill is due on the 25th yet not bill to review. So please guide respond to my email or call at (570)656-1083. I do not want to take legal action unless I am left with no choice. Ido not believe in law suites, however I will if this is not resolved promptly in an efficient manner. Thank you and have a Happy Christmas.
Ordered U-Verse and schedule installation between 8 and 12 on April 4, 2013 the tech never showed or called. Contacted various ATT numbers and got someone from India the majority of the time. Called everyday and was shuttled around for hours each time with no appreciable results. ATT shut off my DSL and would not try to turn it on so was without internet for a week. Talked to a couple English speakers and was told I would have U=Verse on such and such a date, never happened. The last I talked to a tech was to find out u=verse would be installed April 10 this time the tech came out. On Monday April 8 was called by tech support and the A--hole told me he would call after the install time to verify installation and supply an offer to compensate for the trouble I was put through. He has yet to call but really didn't expect it. If it were possible to get another provider out here in the boondocks I would tell ATT to stuff it. Their customer service is non existant and the techs say thing they have no intent on following through on. These phone techs put you on hold for 20,30, 45 minutes while they go visit or something because they come back on with the same crap. ATT should be forced to provide a months free service for every day a situation is not rectified. And on top of all this crap I had to put up with U-Verse sucks it is slower than the DSL I had. What a waste. I hate ATT and will never recommend ATT products to anyone.
When AT&T took over US Cellular in 2006, I woke up in the morning and my service had been switched. This was done without me signing any contracts with you or any notice. Then, you stated that I would have a "similar" plan with you like I held with Us Cellular...that was a lie. Believing and trusting AT&T, I kept your service.
When I got my bill, I flipped! My 3,000 + minutes were chiseled down to 300 minutes, of course I went over the limit without knowing it. When I called you, each person was very rude. I changed to Verizon and am still with them.
For seven years I have been continuously harassed, while I was a single mother and now retired, taking care of my 89 and 88 year parents. The people you have ruthlessly and wrongly turned my information over to, have to this day, called me as many as 7 times in a row almost every day.
I need my phone line open for emergencies. Yes, I could have been bullied into paying the bill, but you committed the deception thus making it "really the principal" of the thing.
I would appreciate you taking care of your responsibility of placing me in this situation. If not, since I am retired, I do have the time to go to a lawyer. I still have the paper work for this.

We bought a iphone 4 with a upgrade for $99 as a christmas gift for our daughter and gave to her early due to her phone crashed. we activated it and 3 days later it was stolen. we contacted AT&T as well as Apple and we were told we could do nothing about it. we were told we had to purchase another one for $550 if we wanted a new one. even with the technoligy they have it is not able to be located. when apple was notified we were told they dont support the customer just the product and there was nothing they could do.
When AT&T was notified they said it was out of there hands because it was an apple product and apple doesnt care about there customers just the product. so i guess our complaint is that there is no such thing as CUSTOMER care at AT&T or Apple. we are switching companies as well as product. with HTC being as good as or better than apple and better customer care.
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!
1.store would not answer questions on cell phone.my phone died and had to buy one.isaid no extra charges.other manager is not there there are charges.no instructions on how to use phone.no access to computer to get info.i get charged for hitting i cons that i never wanted.hate the phone and hate the service in the store.i spent my breaks and lunch hour on the phone with att and no anwers. 2. sons two month phone's batter is defective. store said they could not do naything.that suck. we have two phones that work horrible and were told it would be $35 to bring them back. isn't the customer to get a phone that works when you pay all this money. and 3. people are getting the hd channels free. i called and i was told that i was not a preferred customer to get that free. ok. i have been using at and t for year and years. and years and years. i thought i was a preferred customer. i am not getting any help on the phone or at the store. are you going to help me.
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.
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.
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 orÂ 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
I'am filing this complaint due to AT&T Being either unreliable and completely inept as to the problems of replacing a phone i purchased through their company , i had a palm phone which i was trying to get the product replaced and have been met with a stone door as to doing so , now my phone is completely dead and i'm looking at spending extra money to get another phone when the product was clearly a faulty hand set and when trying to get help in dealing with it nobody could help let alone customer service or even the store branch where it was purchased , now i have no phone and very little money to do this and should i do so it will take awy from my family holiday season ...
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 Iâm went to the hospital twice because the way of AT&T doesnât 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
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."
I moved from Canton Ohio to Mt Pleasant S.C. I had wireless internet and phone I this wanted what I have in Canton,Ohio. I did not ask for a new equipment. I should not need to pay will $199.99.
They told me then you this move your service there will not be a charge.
They lie to me!!!!! ,
I have uverse put in for all services on 08/03/2012 during the first month my services would go off for periods of time when it rained or got cloudy on Sept 042012 I called as the service in my kitchen tv thats houses one of the wireless receivers did not work After time on the phone to see if we could get it fixed it could not be fixed and they had to send a tech out on 09/04/12 when he came we were told that we had the wrong modem and we were loosing signal He replaced the modem and then went into our downstairs family room and pulled on the wires that were placed for a box on initial installation he then could not get the TV to go on and finally gave up and gave us a wireless receiver. Know I am getting charged for the repair and a $110.00 charge for a computer outlet that was there on installation and a 99.00 repair I should not have to pay for these acct chages as apparently the u verse was not set up right on installation I want these charges removed phone number 773-774-6752 I spoke to a supervior and then a manager who told me the repair charge can be removed but the outler charge has to remain . Waht kind of business is this I am wondering if I should have stayed with comcast I do not see a new outlet by my computer that was put in
Whoever does your commercials is horrible at their job. Where did you get all the ugly kids? I work at a bar and my customers ask me to change the channel or mute when your commercials come on. Thats pretty sad. Make some better commercials the kids are very annoying and not even cute!!!!
I ordered it online and they never check with me the shipping addrres so they send the phone to wrong addrrs wich i dont even kno how they got the addrrs, so i waited pr 3 weeks and cAlled them and found out abt it

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.
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.
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 .
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 !
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.
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.
i live in washington state by omak washington we have had no cellphone and or speratic cellphone service for going on week two now. all of the at&t reps and stores always say its your phone there are hundreds of customers in this area with this service problem and they ignore paying customers issues. they always have one excuse or another but no solution .as a irritated customer i am thinking of dumping at&T and switching phone carries. the headache with the service aint worth it anymore this is going on now and who knows when it will be resolved
It's a shame i have been a loyal customer with AT&T for 4 years last year i found myself on disability as of 11/12/12 it is now 1/5/13 and i still have not received any money from disability i haven't been able to pay my rent or my Car note yet i get more courtesy from my land lord and an auto loan company than i do from AT&T i am currently one month behind on my cell phone bill and my service has been suspended i explained to the billing department that i will be able to pay my bill next week because i go back to work tomorrow but they say there is nothing they can do for me i have a lot of catching up to do on my bills if my phone is off for a week i will not pay for it that's something i can not afford right now i would be a shame for AT&T to lose a customer for 80 dollars! What kind of business does that?
I had an account with att u-vers # 254374857 returned the equipment bank in Jan 2018 by UPS per instructions of AT&T along with the account number. Now 11 months later they have sent this to collections for the dumb amount of $ 162.38 on 12/18/2018. I am sooooooooo pissed right now... that they did not try to reach me nor send me a letter about what was owed. I have been with AT&T for 12-13 years, they have my mailing address so there is no excuse for this crap ! I have call the collection company Diversified @ 904-247-5500 and talked to Michelle Gonzales and Greg Shaws (manager) to explain that I was never notified about this, and it would have been paid right then once I was notified. I did pay the amount with Greg over the phone, but with that being said I cant prove the equipment was sent because I have not longer the receipt from UPS when I shipped it, so had no choose but to pay this as I wanted this gone. The issue is not that you guys have this as a collection item and it has effected my credit score 100 points, and not I will be impacted because of this. I want AT&T to have this removed from my credit report as the mistake was not mine, I shipped the equipment.
Now the customer care team is going to look into this to see if they ever recvd the equipment. Should this not been done before you reported the account to collections ?
I want AT&T to fix this or I will get an attorney to get this corrected and will also call the BBB and report ATT along with the Federal Communications.
I switched over from sprint last year to save money but instead the I’m paying $100 more than I was. I have a $700 bill in collections because you didn’t pay my trade in phones. I have a home phone on my acct that has never been activated. And I didn’t want. I have been to 3-4 Mn ATT stores and know one can help because they don’t know what they are doing! I need to get my bill down $100 that I was promised. And upgrades for my phones as promised every 12 months with no additional fees! Very poor service disappointing!!
My wife was talked into bundling several months ago our cell phones, direct tv service and our house phone witch was version service. Every since our house phone only works part of the time, and we lost our fax service. We have complained to the Barstow office where you pay your bill and have been told they will up the issue to the proper place in AT&T complaint dept. to get the issue resolved. To date no one has shown up to see what kind of problems we have here at our house with our wireless house phone and to say it only works part of the time. I'm asking you to send one of your expert tecks out here to see what the issue here is so we can have what we are paying for monthly witch we have not have since we were talked into months ago. Please call me on my cell phone at 760 267 3855 to see what the issue is here. Thank you. We have spent way to much money on your service that is not working. thank you again. Please respond.
Bill was switched to paperless without conformation from me as a customer. I notify them that I did not want this to happen and I received a letter that stated that my next billing would not come thru the mail. I do not trust e-mail enough to rely receiving my bill thru this method and I do not trust AT&T with any of my info to direct bill. I called and spoke to one person and she could help me and I was passed to another person, no info was provided to the next person. I had to provide all that info again. customer service??????? This person was off shore. No personal feelings for their customers just dollar signs AT&T. Gonna cost you in the end. This is not the problem I have had. U-Verse and mobile phone??
tried to find out about direct tv discounts for retired att employees no luck called at least 5 toll free numbers no luck maybe that is why spectrum service is so much better there stock is over 300 a share att is 30 a share if ceo an board stop being concerned about there on checks an start to work on problems maybe service would be better a change would be better than talk talk is cheap 4786763513
I wish I could give this horrible company a big ZERO. My husband is 80 yrs old and I am almost 67. We were no longer under contract with AT&T and wanted to buy new phones for Christmas. We were told if my husband dropped his number we could take advantage of the BOGO offer of buy one for me and get hubby's free. We did it and was told after all charges and tax our bill would be around 285.00 each month. It took me and Hubby from 11 to almost 7 o'clock on Nov. 27 to get these phones with no time for food. Hubby noticed a few days later that his old phone was still active. I called numerous times and stayed on the line for 30 minutes talking with nothing resolved. I called back to question charges and it took the second guy over one hour to go over all the bogus charges with me. AT @ T had presented me with a 400.00 + bill after me paying about $500.00 dollars for fees for the phones. They also said I had 6 lines and then changed that figure to 5 lines. I only have 4 lines. Nothing resolved but a small credit of $30. I CANNOT and WILL NOT PAY over $400 dollars for 4 lines when it was suppose to be buy one get one FREE on two of the lines. I asked to speak to a supervisor but AT & T refused each time to connect me. UPSET SENIOR CITIZENS IN LAS VEGAS!!!!!
I canceled my contract service and switched to a prepaid account. I called at&t billing (VESTA) and canceled my auto pay. AT&T has no record, but I have it on my call log.
In short: AT&T has structured their billing, service, contract, prepaid services so that you can't get a refund.
AT&T has no clear or defined path to get a refund. They can't be sued, so they have placed themselves above the law.
I do believe a monkey with a blindfold on could handle business better than the AT&T customer service people do. I called in to have my Tv & internet bundled (combine the 2 bills into 1). By September they were combined but not the bill. Called in Oct.~ Nov.( told it would "defiantly" be done by Dec. Well it ain't. Now by Jan. billing. Somebody don't have a clue what they are doing.o believe a monkey with a blindfold on could handle business better than the AT&T customer service people do.

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

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

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

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

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

My phone line has been down for days. This has happened before. Why don't you do your damn jobs? I have called my congresswoman about this. I am a 100% Disabeled Veteran from injuries in Iraq! I need this phone system to work! Who is another service for my area. I will look into this and change A.S.A.P.!
I have several complaints. The most recent is that while on a Caribbean Cruise I paid $50 for both my phone (850-509-0118) and my wife's phone (850-694-6641) to have voice and text. I received information on how to turn off data, which I followed. My wife's phone was billed $250 for the first 4 days of the trip and then billed some unknown amount for the last 3 (approximately $175). Her data was turned off and when I complained I was told that regardless of what AT&T told me, it was my responsibility to ensure no data made its way to my wife's phone. After the first $250 charge was made and I received no satisfaction from your service person, I checked to ensure I had no contract with AT&T and then I switched to Verizon. I have other AT&T complaints which I will identify later. Then on 9 November I received an email saying I was being charged $277.80 and told to click on "sign in" to see the bill. Of course I could not get to see my bill because my account was closed. I spoke with some person at your 800-331-0500 number who said that $277.80 was the bill and that was final. She also said that I was sent a bill via the post office to my house. That is not the truth either. I have not received a bill, and any reputable organization would not bill someone without a bill...but therein lies the complaint. You took advantage of my permitting you to use paperless billing by posting this charge to my American Express account without providing me any information on what the charges were for. I still have not seen a bill. Although after the bill was posted on Amex, your email said I could sign in to view, but would not allow me to. It said it was sending a verification code which was never received.
Other problems with AT&T are: Insufficient coverage (for example, at the airport when flight was canceled, I could not place a call from the gate area): voice mails would appear days after being left, text messages received out of order.
You have convinced me that I am not safe permitting any AT&T organization to bill me paperless. Therefore at my earliest opportunity I will also leave Directv, which unfortunately I have no complaint with except that they belong to AT&T.
My Mother and I have been AT&T customers for several years; she lives in Arizona and I, in Washington. Before she came to visit me in Spokane for Thanksgiving, her smart phone was stolen from her purse while shopping. She reported the theft - by phone to AT&T, and they told her that they would lock the phone and send her a replacement within the next couple days. It was nearly two weeks before she left on her trip, but the phone never arrived... I told my mother that we would take care of things while she was visiting.
So, yesterday I took my mother to an AT&T store in Spokane. It was early afternoon and we had to wait for someone to help us. Initially there was a young guy who appeared to be training (later, he left to help other people) and a woman whose name tag read "Tina". My mother is older but very sharp and understands what is going on... she was trying to explain the situation and find out her options while I stood by quietly most of the time. I will say up front, Tina was disrespectful and rude to my mother. She said "I've never heard of any AT&T doing that" when we mentioned the replacement phone. Then when my mother leaned in as they brought up the records of the call, she said "Oh, this is all legalese, you wouldn't understand it". She spoke extremely condescendingly and cut her off with a very loud and unkind tone the whole time.
When I had heard enough of this, I asked Tina "What is the principal balance owed on her phone?", because I wanted to end this and go talk privately with my mother about her options. Tina told me the balance, and from that point on, if my mother asked a question or responded in a thoughtful way, Tina would quickly answer, then turn to me and ask if I understood and could I explain it to her later.
Tina's behavior was beyond disrespectful, rolling her eyes and making quips about us to the next customer as we walked out of the store. I wanted to turn and scold her for being so awful, but I saw it as a loosing battle and left.
I have over 5 years of experience in customer service, and if I had ever seen this type of behavior with any of my trainees, they would be given re-training and their first warning, leading to termination. What Tina didn't know is that although my mother is older, she has worked for in a variety of city government positions, customer service, billing and with computers, and though she acted oblivious, she was very hurt and embarrassed by this treatment.
I am recommending to her that she should cut all ties with AT&T at this point... as I will be doing.
charged for 6 months and never used this service those six months. moved out may 3rd 2018 told to cancel was never canceled as told charge may,june,july,aug, sept.and oct. $146 each of these month. moved away may 3rd paid and I wasn't living. want this money paid back to me. will contact lawyer if not paid back to me. telephone acct under 601 575 2200 moved away last may and never used service. but was charged for all those months. 6 months charged and didn't live there those 6 months. want money back. lot of money when I never had used service and still not living there. you had been told to turn off in may 2018 and it was never turned off. this is not right. so pay me back those six months. phone no. now 419 455 5868 moved from 300 n Decatur st union,ms 39365 last may now living at 849 n water st apt 106 tiffin,ohio 44883 send money back!!!!!!!! cora garvin
About 3 0r 4 times per month I get a charge on my cell phone for time that I have NOT used. I admit that I am a very low volume user (479-721-3059) My phone is a flip type. I do not text. I use this thing for emergency type communication. I am about to have it shut down as I am tired of getting charged for time that I do not use. We do not use our phones for any internet or other stuff. I called your 800 number and reached a person that sounded like they were from India and I could hardly understand her. She insisted that the charges were for text messages. I do not receive Text messages except from At&T, so if you are charging me for that then stop sending me your stupid messages. If I cannot get this fixed then I will stop using it. I went without my cell for a bit over 2 weeks and did not miss it at all. Ether this will stop happening or you will lose a customer that has been with you for over 14 years. I expect a reply from someone who lives in the USA and speaks so as I can understand them. Thank you. Perhaps you might have picked up on the fact of my total dissatisfaction with your billing practices. I am old and cranky. but people like me pay your wages, we are called customers. Without us AT&T will not be. Thank you for taking care of this, Grant C. Rowell
I called to have a jack installed for our AT&T internet and Direct TV on the other side of our living room so we can change around our TV. The person told me that they could do that and it would cost $49 plus some taxes and $5.00 for something, I don’t know what. They called it Use Tax Adjustment. Why do I have to pay for Use Tax. So the install was scheduled for the next day between 8 AM and Noon. An installer called at 11:10 AM and said that he would be filling in for the original guy but couldn’t make it until 1:30 or so. I called my husband and told him and he wasn’t happy so he called customer service but couldn’t understand the rep because they didn’t speak understandable English. Meanwhile I got a call back from the installer who said the the appointment that he was on got cancelled so he would be over in about a half an hour. He got here ant told my husband that he was from Direct TV so couldn’t do any with the internet cable and proceeded to drill a hole in the floor for the cable and not install a jack because that would cost more money. He left and that evening I called the Direct TV phone number to explain what happened and she told me that I had to talk to someone at AT&T and transferred me. Talked with a very nice lady who understood and wanted to reverse the charge and start all over but couldn’t do anything because she was from AT&T and the charge was from Direct TV. I needed to call Direct TV and explain to them. Ugh!!! Soooo, I called Direct TV and explained again and she told me that as far as they were concerned the job was completed so she couldn’t reverse the charge. I told her that it wasn’t done they way that I requested, but she could care less and pretty much told me “too bad so sad”, I hung up!!!
Att technician will not return my call. His number is 314 740 9896. I am going to change to another provider unless I get action! Dave Scrivner St. Louis mo
I have a home in Cleveland TN and was considering changing my service there to AT&T for television and internet. When I came to my cabin 50 miles away and turned on my TV which is provided by Dish, I saw where there was a blackout by AT&T. It seems like the general public gets hijacked by big companies like AT&T on a daily basis. Of course when you have the controls, I suppose that gives you the right, Needless to say, I will not be switching to AT&T after this. Some things are just wrong! It is a shame that greed always controls companies decisions. This is the polite way of telling you what jerks you are.
AT THE END OF 2017 I WAS CALLED AND TOLD IF I DID NOT LET AT&T INSTALL FIBER SERVICE TO MY BUSINESS (JOHNSON LASER WORKS @ 3406 HWY. 2 BONIFAY, FLORIDA) MY BILL WAS GOING TO GO WAY UP. I AGREED TO LET THEM INSTALL FIBER OPTIC SERVICE TO MY BUSINESS. IN MARCH 2018 THEY INSTALLED THE FIBER AND TERMINATED IT IN MY OFFICE, AND FIVE (5) MONTHS AGO I RECEIVED THE EQUIPMENT TO FINISH THE CONNECT TO MY EQUIPTMENT IN MY OFFICE. FIVE WEEKS AGO TOMORROW A TECHNICIAN CAME HERE AND AFTER ABOUT 2 HOURS SHE STATED SHE WOULD HAVE TO HAVE HELP INSTALLING THE EQUIPTMENT.
SHE SAID SHE WOULD RETURN AND HAVE SOMEONE TO HELP HER. SHE LEFT AND I HAVE NOT SEEN ANYONE SINCE THEN.

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

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

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

Customer: Yea please
Agent: I'm sorry to read that, however I can help you to provide that information
Customer: Thank you and do guys have a remorse program?
Agent: The buyers remorse program is able to be used under the first 14 days of purchase of the devices.
Customer: I’m on my 3rd iPhone X and it is not working like my 7plus did I’ve only had this one for 2 months can I get a different upgrade?
Customer: Not the iphoneX
Agent: Let me check your account first, could you please give me the account number and passcode, you can check it on MyATT.com/Overview

Agent: Thank you
Agent: the passcode can be checked on MyATT.com/Overview, let me know once you get it
Customer: Are you wanting me to look at it?
Agent: Yes Tammie, is the way I'm able to pull up your account in my system, with the account number.
Customer: I’m in my account
Agent: Perfect, as you're in your account, could you please check the account number there?
Agent: Appreciate that Tammie.
Agent: Thank you.
Agent: One moment please.
Agent: Thank you.
Agent: I'm going to send you a one time security pin code, may I have teh best phone number fro you to get it?
Agent: Can I have the pin?
Agent: Thank you.
Agent: One moment please.
Agent: Let me ask you a few questions to make sure I have the info to help with your request.
Agent: May I know what happened to the device that is not working?
Customer: It crashes my work apps and links
Agent: I see Tammie, and you contacted tech support yesterday to know the reason why device crashes the apps?
Customer: I’ve spoke with everyone in every department with no help no one seem to bothered with my problem at all...
Customer: I would just like to give the phone back and get away from this lease or get a phone that I’m happy with?
Agent: I see, it seems the line is covered under warranty until 8/2/2019. To be honest, I'll use the warranty as this is not a damaged made in your own, it seems is more like the device is not holding the usage of the apps.
Customer: I’m not sure but the phone has no damage at all I’ve had it less than 2 months
Customer: I would love to use the warranty or whatever I need to do to get it solved
Agent: In that case I highly recommend you to use the warranty as it seems a software damage, in that case I recommend you to call apple care. May I know if you tried to restore the device?
Customer: Yes I have hard and soft
Customer: Apple said that you guys would have to take the phone or buy it back or whatever and the. They will supply a new phone but they’re not going to pay for this phone do att and a new phone for me?
Agent: I see, in that case as this is a software damage I recommend you to contact apple care as the line is under warranty until 8/2/2019
Agent: Let me double check that, just to confirm, Apple told you ATT has to buy back the phone and they give you a new one?
Customer: How do I send you guys this phone ? That’s why I need the amount that I would have to pay because I am going to a different carrier as well?
Customer: Yea they did
Agent: As I shared with you the 14 days of purchase it can be returned, in this case Apple must do a replacement of the device for the same installments if you claim a replacement with apple care
Customer: I’m just going with someone else if you could please give me the amount to cancel this contract and send the phone back?
Agent: The amount to cancel the contract will be the remaining installments on the devices that is $2,323.30
Customer: The phone doesn’t cost that much? I only have 1 phone?
Agent: It seems you have one line reserved, the 0844 line
Customer: I was getting another line but I am not I will just do that with Verizon
Agent: One moment please.
Agent: May I know if you accept term and conditions of that line?
Customer: No I did not
Agent: In that case I recommend you to reject the terms and conditions, in that way the line and installments will be canceled for the reserved line. For the iPhone X will be $1,073.31
Customer: And when I return the device how much will I owe ?
Customer: Could you tell me how long I have been with att?
Agent: As are the remaining installments charged in your final bill, you don;t need to return the device. My system shared that the account is active since 2010
Agent: you don't*
Customer: I’m not paying for a phone that I can not use? I am returning it and just go with the other company?
Customer: Why would I have to pay for a phone I am returning to you?
Agent: As I shared with you the buyers remorse option works on the first 14 days. If you cancel the account you receive the remaining installments charged on your final bill and you can keep the device as you receive the charge for the remaining installments.
Customer: I understand that but within 2 months I’ve had to return 2 of the phones why would you guy not take this phone back due to it took me 1 months to get one that would even start working somewhat?? As being a loyal long customer?
Customer: I’ve never had so much trouble with getting a cell phone that worked before this is the 1st time and this is making me miserable!!
Agent: I'm just giving you the information of the processes, what you can do in that case is get the remaining installments charged and go to ATT store if they buy back the phone.
Customer: Regardless I’m not paying for a phone I’m unable to use?
Customer: So how do I go about returning the phone?
Customer: I will pay for early termination or whatever but not for a phone that I can not even use for what I bought it for?
Agent: Let me explain this better
Customer: I understand what your saying
Agent: You can return it if you want, however as you're paying the remaining installments of the phone to cancel the account. The phone will belong to you
Customer: I’m not paying for a phone that I can not use??
Agent: I mean, you can return it, however I'm not sure if they will send it back to you
Customer: Why would I pay for a phone that is no use to me?
Customer: So as me being a loyal customer you guys will not allow me to return this phone for a phone I could use?
Agent: Because is a legal commitment for the device, and the system will generate that charge, if you want as the device is not working, you can replace it with the warranty
Customer: I’ve had 5 lines at one!
Customer: Apple said that I had to return it you guys and then they would replace it?
Agent: I'm giving you the proper info regarding the process, the warranty is managed by the manufacturer
Customer: Can you see in the notes where I got the run around with this phone? I’ve had 3 that will not work and every one keeps sending me to someone else?
Customer: For 2 months!
Customer: Could I chat with a manager I understand the procedure but I can’t help that everybody is giving me the runs around with the phones!
Agent: I'm really sorry you went into this for a long time, however the ones that can replace the device under warranty is Apple Care.
Agent: One moment please.
Customer: Thank you
Agent: You're welcome. I'm discussing with my manager and as we manage the same tools and the same information, the option for you to get a replacement is with Apple Care
Customer: I understand that I am saying that everyone at the att Corp store assured me that this 3rd phone would work and it doesn’t do what they said it would do and I think I should get my upgrade option back to replace this phone
Customer: Because they said with no doubt hopefully this one would work!
Agent: As the line is advanced on installment's the system won't be able to apply a new upgrade on that, I completely understand your point, and makes sens you are frustrated as you thought it would work, to be honest, the best option for you is to contact Apple care and replacer it.
Customer: They told me I would have to contact you guys for an override on the upgrade option to replace it?
Customer: This is what I mean this is why it is past my 14 days!
Customer: So now I am stuck with a phone I have to pay for that I can not use it for what I bought it for?
Agent: I was working with my support team and they told me the same, it must to be applied for Apple Care, they replace the device having the same installments.
Customer: I have been to Apple 3 times they told me that you guys would have to take the phone back for me to upgrade?
Customer: So if I am stuck in the middle what do I do ?
Customer: I’m really frustrated at this point I just need someone to over ride my upgrade option so I can get a phone for what I need it for ... please
Customer: They did an override for me to get the second unworkable phone!
Customer: This shouldn’t have to be this hard!
Agent: I would love to do it Tammie, believe me I would love to do it from here, but the system doesn't allow me to override the installments as are advanced on the 3rd payment, I'm just giving you the information of the procedures to replace the device.
Customer: They did it on the second phone
Agent: May I know when did you get an override?
Customer: Which did not work either!
Agent: I understand.
Customer: On the second iphoneX I got all this witih 1 months and the still does not work
Agent: Let me check the notes again.
Customer: For what I need it for after they said it would!
Agent: Let me check the notes
Agent: One moment please.
Agent: Could you please give me the confirmation number of the override?
Customer: They did it the store I have no idea what it was???
Agent: From here I need all the confirmation of the processes, if you got that override at the store I recommend you to go to the store to get the process they did before
Customer: It was when we did the second phone because once again they sent me to apple and apple sent me back to the store!
Customer: They were on the phone with you guys?!
Customer: Why can you not see that information in the notes as well?
Customer: It’s only been 2 mo this?
Customer: 2 months!
Agent: Let me double check
Customer: Is there a manager available I really need to get this resolved ASAP and I’m sick of the run around?
Agent: As I shared with you, my manager will give you the same info as they manage the same tools
Customer: Ok well I need to chat with someone that will help me resolve my problem
Agent: One moment please.
Agent: I'm discussing whit manager about your concern.
Agent: My manager is working with other case, please bear in the chat
Agent: Thank you.
Agent: Please give me a few minutes while I look into this.
Agent: Thank you.
Customer: Do you know if too will be an all day event as well?
Agent: My manager is preparing the system to take your concern now, please bear with me.
Agent: Thank you.
Agent: Just to recap, you chatted to override the installments of the device that is not working, I've shared the options to replace the device with the warranty with Apple Care and the amount to pay off the phone to cancel the account, now my manager will take your concern.
Customer: Thank uou
Agent: Good afternoon. I'm Miguel manager on the floor. I can see you were transferred because you want to have the installments removed, due to is not working. Am I right?
Customer: Yea or my upgrade option back
Agent: Well, this case is a warranty. You have to go to Apple and change the device. Your equipment has a warranty covered by the manufacturer.
Customer: The phone is not defective the 1st phone was saying it was stolen or something that I received from a corporate store, the 2nd would not charge and now the 3rd one is not downloading my apps correctly or how I need them to, so I went or Apple because the Corp store said to and Apple said to bring it to you guys and now I’m getting the same from you guys? I don’t understand why can not send this phone back and get my upgrade option back because I’ve been with you guys for a long time and I’ve never had an issue like this concerning getting a working phone?
Customer: Now I have to pay for a phone that I’m unable to use?
Customer: That’s not right and it’s not my fault that I’ve gone through 3 phones and none of them were working properly and it’s only been 2 months with 2 phones!
Customer: 3 phones
Agent: No worries, we help customers. When you want to return a device you have 14 days Buyer's Remorse. If you are out of that period, the Apple warranty is going to cover.
Agent: In this case you will be cover by Apple. All Apple devices have warranty.
Customer: But they are sending me to you guys they will not upgrade or exchange my phone until you guys take this phone back!?
Customer: So now what am I to do to get a phone that works the way the store PROMISED would work?
Agent: Are you sure you went to Apple? They always help you with that. That's the Apple warranty.
Customer: Yes 3 tmea
Agent: Please go there, and talk to a manager. Your device is an Apple, it has warranty directly with Apple.
Customer: Are you guys serious?
Agent: Sure. And we work with serious device providers.
Agent: They have warranty.
Customer: Why can you guy not give me my upgrade option back and take the defective phones that I am getting from your store?
Agent: Because the have a manufacturer warranty. That's the way we work with our device providers.
Customer: I live 45 mins away from the Apple store and i have been the 3 times this is horrible and I don’t understand if I got the phone from you guys why can I not return it to you?
Customer: There is no problem with the device other than it not downloading the apps I need for work like the att store said they would??
Agent: The first 14 days, is the Buyer's Remorse period. After that you are covered with manufacturer warranty. Apple will cover the warranty.
Customer: So what about the 2nd phone? I returned it to the store and they gave me the 2rd one that is not working like they said it would?
Customer: 3 phones in 2 months , really?
Customer: This is ridiculous how I have been a loyal customer and unable for you guys to fix this problem!
Agent: I see your point. However, our devices are covered by the manufacturer warranty. That's the way to do it.
Customer: Ok that’s fine I don’t have time to continually go to the Apple store that is over 40 miles away from me?
Customer: All I need is a phone to do what I need it to do
Agent: I see your point. However your device has Apple warranty. That's the way to do it.
Customer: Ok but I’ve been there for them to tell me that you guys ha e to take the phone back because it’s still in working condition!??
Customer: I’m still stuck in the middle when I know you guys can do the upgrade over ride like on the 2nd device o had that was defective
Agent: We only take devices back on the 14 days Buyer's Remorse period. After that the manufacturer warranty will apply. Your device is Apple, it has Apple warranty.
Customer: So why is so that you guys promised me this one would work and that is not happened yet
Customer: I understand that but this is Phone #3
Customer: No 1 or even 2
Customer: 3 in 2 months! I could’ve kept my old phone and been fine but I was talked into an upgrade/ cordless charger and a faceplate!!
Agent: We promise our devices work, if they have some issue, it will be covered by the 14 day Buyer's Remorse period. After that period it will be covered by the manufacturer warranty. Your device is Apple, it is covered by the Apple warranty.
Customer: Ok got that part but what am I to do when they say they can’t do anything about a promise that was made by att that the phone would work the way I needed it to and it doesn’t?
Customer: The second phone was after 14 days??
Agent: If your device has any issue; they will cover that.
Customer: This is all to much! I just need you guys to tell me how to return. The phone because I’m not paying a phone I can’t use and how to get out of this contract with you guys so maybe I can get help with people who car and are loyal to loyal customers
Customer: The devise is not defective it is not allowing the apps to download!
Customer: The ones I need to work like the store said they would!
Agent: You can only return the device in the Buyer's Remorse period 14 days. Now it is about warranty, it will be covered by Apple.
Customer: I did that!
Customer: And the only reason it has been this long is because att and Apple are sending back forth!
Agent: Actually. You can return the device only in the 14 day's buyer's remorse period.
Agent: With us you can return the equipment in the Buyer's Remorse period.
Agent: After that it will be manufacturer warranty.
Customer: So should have 28 day emotes period between the 3 phones or morw
Agent: It is only 14 days.
Customer: Per phone!
Agent: Per the first one.
Customer: It’s not my fault that I am getting the phone from the store!
Customer: Corp store!
Agent: After that will be manufacturer warranty.
Agent: All our phones have manufacturer warranty.
Customer: Well if you the manger I need for you to fix this issue or get me to someone who can
Customer: Thank you
Agent: Only Apple can.
Customer: Well Apple said to return to you guys been there did that I’m not dealing with this any longer
Agent: You can only return it in the 14 days Buyer's Remorse period.
Agent: Now is Apple warranty.
Customer: Please get me to someone who can help me solve this issue it has been 2 months and I am not able to pay for a phone that is useless to me I should get what I pay foe’n
Agent: It will be Apple.
Customer: Ok let please speak with someone who can help me within att
Agent: Only Apple can.
Customer: No way I should have to have had 3 phone and non of them work no way’n
Customer: No I received the phone from att so I need to speak with someone there!
Customer: As per Apple!
Agent: I'm sorry for reading that. However it is manufacturer warranty. You have to talk to Apple.
Customer: Ok I need to speak with someone over you if you don’t mind
Customer: Thank you
Customer: There is no way anyone paying for a $1000 Phone and it doesn’t work like att said it would..
Customer: But you still try and make me take the phone!
Agent: I'm the manager on the floor. I'm the one to take this chats. There is no way to transfer this chat.
Customer: Please let me speak with someone who can help me
Agent: Only Apple can help you.
Customer: I know there is someone over you and I would like to speak with them
Customer: Thank you
Agent: I'm the manager to take this chats.
Customer: I need to get this fixed and I’m not going to be going back and forth I’ve did it for 1 months
Customer: Ok who do you report to’
Customer: I would like to speak with rhem
Agent: I'm sorry. It has to be done by Apple.
Customer: Well Apple said you guys
Agent: This is manufacturers warranty.
Customer: Not if the phone is not defective it’s an att issue because you guys said that the phone would do what I needed it to
Customer: And continue to give me same phone that doesn’t work like you said it wouls
Agent: I would love to tell you we can cover that warranty. However it is Apple the one to cover the warranty.
Customer: The devise is not defective as per Apple you guy sold me a dream that does not work like you said it would!
Customer: This is not a simple issue of a couple of hundred bucks we talking $1000 for a phone that doesn’t do what you promised me it would do!
Customer: Please let me speak with someone that can help me
Customer: I need to get this taken care of before 3 or 4 months come and it will definitely be too late
Agent: Then, if the device have no issues, why Apple gave you instructions about having installments remove by At&t? And have it returned? So your telling me, the device is in perfect conditions. Aren't you?
Customer: Yea the devise works it is not downloading my application that I need for work like my other iPhone did!! Apple said that you guys sold me a phone 3 times that you knew wouldn’t do that!! Not not the 10’
Customer: But you still sold it to me 3 ties!
Customer: Not 1 or 2 but 3 times!!
Customer: So how is that not you guys problem!????
Customer: Why is it so hard to take the phone back and replace it with something that will!!!!!!
Customer: Would you like if this were you with this problem for 2 months!
Customer: I’ve never had an issue like this with att!! Until NOW!
Agent: In this case, since the device is working properly; it is about the sales accessory. We take that escalation directly at the At&t store. With the store manager.
Customer: Paying for a phone is no problem I have been doing it for almost 10 years with out a problem
Customer: I don’t care I need the problem dealt with or I need to send the phone back and go somewhere else because I don’t want to pay for something I can not use?
I have been attempting to cancel my DIRECTV service for many weeks. I have been promised a call back from a manager that never happened. I was promised emails and instructions to return equipment three times, that never happened. I finally found out I had an option to return equipment to a UPS store and when we got there they didn’t have our equipment listed so here I am on hold with your offices. I am being pushed around from departments because you can’t locate the equipment I clearly have. Meanwhile, because I moved you are charging me a disconnect fee – despite all the hassles and broken promises you fail to keep.
I expect more from companies in delivery of service and I am sorely disappointed in AT&T and DIRECTV. This is not what I expect from a company. At this time we have been customers of yours about two years, however, prior to that we were DIRECTV customers for about 18 years. I would proudly say I had DIRECTV. But no more.
The essence of good service to me is communication and promise keeping. Neither of which you provided. You failed on every bit of this. At this time, I still have equipment I can’t return, because you show we don’t have those pieces. I am the first person to write a note for good service. I should also be sure to share when things god badly. Feedback is a gift. You’re welcome.
PS I am still on the phone, after 35 minutes. I still have no shipping labels and you have still broken promises. Funny, you somehow got me a bill – which I deserve to be waived – yet you cannot send one simple shipping label timely or appropriately.
Have feedback for AT&T?
Thanks for your feedback!
Sorry. Please try again later!
