ATTATT Cell phone Plan Promotion

Today I called ATT to inquire about NEW ATT CELL PHONE PROMO . The ATT representative told me I could receive a new cell phone FREE. After ONE hour on the phone setting up my new cell phone I was told that there was no charge for the phone BUT I WOULD BE BILLED BY ATT FOR 30 MONTHS (2.5 YEARS)!!! The ATT representative did not explain ONCE that I would be signing a 30 month contract with ATT. This is unacceptable!!! I consider this method of sales to be "SLAMMING" THE CUSTOMER INTO A CONTRACT. UNACCEPTABLE. I WILL RESEARCH OTHER CELL PHONE CARRIERS AND CANCEL MY ATT SERVICE. What a way to treat their long time customers. I've had ATT phone for many years. SHAMEFUL. MAKE PROMO PLANS FOR CLEAR TO CONSUMERS. NO SMOKE AND MIRRORS. I AM A SENIOR CITIZEN AND I THINK THIS VERY STRESSFUL PROCESS TODAY WITH ATT HAS SHORTEN MY LIFE SPAN AT LEAST A YEAR.

    AT&TPhone equipment returns

    On November 9, 2020, I signed on for cell service with AT&T wireless transferring from T-Mobile. I bought thru an authorized retailer, 4 iPhone 12 with a written understanding that I could cancel the agreement and return all phones within 15 days after activation. The phones had staggered delivery dates. As soon as I received the first three phones(in two packages, I called to cancel and returned the first three phones on November 20. The fourth phone was received and returned on December 19. All returns were addressed with the ATT return address forms included in each original package.

    To date, ATT has only acknowledged the receipt of only one (with 2 phones) of the two packaged sent on Nov. 20 and USPS delivery to the AT&T agent date of Nov. 24. And refund for the taxes paid on December 12. For the other two phones, including the one returned on November 20, nothing!

    I have been calling weekly over the past four weeks and no one seems to be able to locate these returns. Interestingly, one agent told me that they could not do anything until these phones until they physically recienve the phones in their warehouse(only God knows where) even though USPS indicate that the phones have been delivered to an ATT agent as indicated on the return label.

    I am deeply frustrated because I wish to move on!!! but can do so as long as ATT is holding up my account not to mention my refund.
    Please help !!!

      AT&TWorst Customer Service

      Customer Service is the Worst!!
      We spent over 12 hours dealing with their customer service, as what I thought would be a nice change has ended up being the worst thing I could ever think of!!
      On December 18, 2020 we went into Sam's Club and decided to switch from Verizon to AT&T, thought we would save money, but instead we have spent $4117.10 now, with $1519.27 not being authorized and not even knowing what it is for. I spent over 5 hours on the phone on December 22, 2020, asking why that was taken out of my account with no response, no one knows or can see it. I was even transferred from your level 2 customer service agent, who transferred me to a Fraud agent to be ridiculed and sent back to customer service to start over!!
      It is now January 14, 2021 and phones have been returned, but it could be months before I see return. Really!!! This is my money and it should not be held, especially when I have returned their product unopened.

        AT&TApple Watch 4

        Georgiana Robinson. [protected]@aol.com
        On October 2020 I saw a reward promotion for Apple Watch on my online bill. The promotion stated if you purchased an Apple Watch 6 and trade in an old Apple Watch you will receive $200 for the old watch and if the watch was in excellent condition you may receive more than $200
        This sound great to me so I purchased the apple watch 6 for $536.24. AT&T emailed me the shipping instructions on how to send the ole watch back to receive the $200 credit. I shipped the watch on 12/3/20 and att received the old watch 12/6/20. To date I haven't received my $200 trade in reward for my old watch . I called AT& T on numerous occasions including today but all I get is the run around. Every representative I spoke with had no idea of such a promotion or they said the only promotion they see in their system was one where you had to trade a phone and get a new phone. They would place me on very long holds (more than an hour at a time) or hang up on me or tell me they can't give me the credit because they can't find it in their system. I have been transferred to the trade in area, the rewards area and the customer care area and each time I have to tell my story all over again and answer a litany of questions which is frustrating.
        All I want is for AT&T to honor the promotion or send me my old watch back.
        Watch 4 shipped USPS 11/3/20 and received by AT&T 12/6/20 from carrier Pitney Bowes Re #[protected]. Usps tracking # 9202390100721415288592. Please help me get my watch back or the promotion credit of $200

          AT&TCellular Bill for Iphone: Cannot look at my own account

          Purchased Iphone in August 2020. I have NEVER been able to log in to my account. My phone number is [protected]. It is a PERSONAL number, NOT a business number! I have had this number since 1998, starting with Sprint.

          AT&T routinely takes money out of my Wells Fargo account, but WILL NOT LET ME LOOK AT MY OWN BILL OR CONTRACT. It is my ACCOUNT that is locked, NOT the device!!!


          After trying to create a login, my account was immediately locked.

            ATTPromotional deal on new Samsung phone

            I took advantage of a trade-in program where I sent my qualified phone, Samsung Note 8,  and purchased a new Samsung Note 20. I followed AT&T rules, made sure I qualified even though I really didn't need a new phone but the program was too good to pass up.  Several weeks later I received a letter from AT&T stating, in essence, "thanks but you are now screwed out of $999 AND your old phone". But wait, I did receive a $35 reward card. So that leaves me with a bill of $964 that I did not want nor can easily afford AND my working Samsung Note 8 gone for good.

              AT&TInternet bill for $99 technician fee

              I ordered new service back in October, I got the self installation kit. I plugged everything in correctly. I am a computer and low voltage technician for 15 years now running my own business. So I know how everything works and where everything should be connected. So when I could not get the modem to get a signal and phone support could not they scheduled a technician to come out. When he came out he tested the line and there was no signals coming into my apt. So he went down to the locked connection box for the building to connect my apt or fix the connection. When he came back he tested and was getting signals and got everything working he then told me he would add notes, so I would not be charged the $99 technician fee because I could not have gotten my internet working without a technician. 2 months now the fee is still there after 3 hrs of phone calls and last month the att person I spoke to told me to pay just my portion of the bill minus the 99 technician fee and it will be removed before my next bill. Still no resolution and I won't pay because I was told I wouldn't be charged on top of that if it could have been fix without getting into there locked box I would have done it myself. As a new customer I'm very fustrated and the fee needs to be removed otherwise I will contact the FTC and any other options I have until this is made right!

                  AT&T CorporationCustomer service

                  I went to a Premium Wireless kiosk in a Walmart Store at 5501 Hwy 6 Missouri city, TX 77459. The idiot at Premium open 2 accounts for 1 phone (work phone), returned the phone 1 week later saying I had got laid off and did not need phone. Since I returned it well within the 14 day limit, Sid at Premium said ok you don't owe any money. Sid got fired for doing a terrible job and then Anglia who started to listen to me got fired for doing a bad job. After I started receiving 2 bills from ATAT I called and asked what is going on, one bill was for the phone that I did get but had no idea what the other bill was for. AT&T was no help after 8 calls to customer service and talking to 10 different people AT&T would not help me, I talked to people in The US, India and the Philippines and I finally gave up and paid for the charges on 2 phones that I don't even have. Terrible customer service, I will never use AT&T or Premium Wireless again and I'm going to use social media to further voice my displeasure over this incident. AT&T should be ashamed!!!

                      ATTunauthorized Fiber, no internet or Landline services from 11/14 thru 11/19/20

                      11/14/20 internet & landline not working? payment always on time, after numerous calls to [protected] a Michelle insisted that ATT could only do the repairs by sending a technician INSIDE my home for 3-4 hours. I am a senior who is disabled and I notified my son that he needed to be present on 11/16/20 between 1-3:00PM. ATT did not show up or called my cell. I called Att after 7-8 attempts and it was stated that a another tech would come back 11/17/20. Tech arrived ahead of time but he waited for my son who advised the tech that I did NOT authorize the fiber installation and demanded the original copper and internet to be restored. He could not do it. On 11/17/20 I filed a verbal complaint with FCC file #4379581.11/18/20 I called Belva Davis, not available so I called the office of the president and spoke with Donald. 11/19/20 ATT technician restored my internet & landline WITHOUT having to come inside. My son took 3 days OFF work because I am disabled and cannot go up and down the many stairs in my home. I asked for compensation, I asked why & who authorized this FIBER, and ROY from the office of the president said that the 6 days without my internet & landline was an ACCIDENT! Why was I told that the only way to get my services restored was to have a tech inside for 3-4 hours? 11/23/20 I received a letter full of lies from ATT. Att should not be allowed to mislead seniors with FIBER services that should be the customers option, have ATT representatives mislead and disconnect PAYING customers for 6 days and just frustrate & misrepresent what rights a customers has! I was NOT given an option when my services were disconnected without notice. I want compensation for my son's time and ATT must in writing apologize for their poor customer service that I had to endure by being told that a supervisor was not available by Maria MC976E and then Maria connected us not to a supervisor but to the Direct TV dept. to get rid of us after 40 minutes waiting .This is the way all of their representatives deal with good paying customers, frustrate them to the point where they will just leave!
