Complaints & Reviews

direct tv, u verse internet, and a land line that i've had for 30 years. packaged service for $89.99 month that i'm not getting!

AT&T called us repeatedly to sell us a packaged set of services. We finally accepted a package for 3 services for $89.99 per month. Direct TV, U-Verse internet & phone with unlimited long distance. I got Direct TV, U-verse internet for $89 per month, and I;m still paying $54 a month for my landline, that we have had for 30 years. I've made 7 calls in the last 3 weeks, with each one lasting at least 3 hours. Talked to Direct TV, AT&T combined billing, loyalty department, U-verse regarding the phone service. Telecom regarding my landline, to no avail. You should have never sold me a package that you could not honor. I've talked to so many people and been switched to so many departments I am just, stunned that you would treat me this way. You offered 3 services for $89.99 a month and I expect you to honor that what ever it takes. I'm tired of not getting anywhere with your glorious company. Fix this or come and take your equipment out of my house and shove the $450 Direct TV disconnect charge. When I talked to Direct TV, they said that they would have a collection agency get their money instead of just taking care of the problem you collectively created. Nobody seems to want to fix this so I can do it easily. Take care of this problem or we are gone. Never been treated like this by any company. We are home most all day. Can't believe it has to come this far!

no service where I need it most!

I work at ut health hospital in pittsburg texas as a security officer. It is essential that I have a phone and service that I can rely on. Much of my work is done via my cell phone. I spend my entire work week, frustrated because I have absolutely no service inside the facility, or, on occasion, when I do get service, it comes and goes almost at a machine gun pace. Other employees, who are with at&t have the same issue, but others, such as verizon customers, have no problem at all! I have a apple 8plus, and my # is [protected]. My wife and I have been customers of yours for years. We have our phones, internet and tv through at&t. Can you please take care of some of your loyal customers?!

wireless - directv

My wife and I have been on board with AT&T since U-Verse. This includes WiFi, 2 cell phones, 3 tablets, long distance, and landline. In the past five years, I have complained a number of times and have been so discouraged that I have stopped trying. Tech support is a joke - from low/no pay interns to inept phone reps, no one can accurately diagnose a problem because it might fix something. Plus, they ignore all I tell them I have done to resolve a problem, only to make me go through the nonsense again.

My Direct TV is hardly visible for 30% of the time due to static. My WiFi cuts out about once every half hour or forty-five minutes for two to five minutes. Not only is this annoying, but I have had to return two FitBit watches because the wireless would not stay on long enough to be able to download upgrades to the FitBit software.

New customers get purchase incentives when folks like me who have been around for so long and have endured all the crap get nothing but more headaches.

Then, the purchase format now being used where the customer is always in a state of payment - and no trade-ins - makes me feel like I'm just asking AT&T to steal from me.

Trying to go into an AT&T store is a whole other nightmare. From poorly managed to not answering phones pushed me to find a franchise store. There, at least I find some folks who do care about customers.

Believe me, I am trying desperately to find an alternative to AT&T. Eventually, I will even if it means ditching the all eggs in one basket system that makes me feel like I am drowning. Oh, and by the way, I have also written complaints before and, you guessed it, they were ignored.

visa card promotion

We switched from Prism to Direct TV. Direct TV was offering a $300 Visa card to switch. Since we had AT&T phone service we went into the AT&T store to see what they would offer to bundle the Diret TV. They said their promotion was $200 but they would honor the Direct TV offer of $300 to switch.
They said it would take 6 weeks to get.
After 10 weeks we contacted AT&T to see where the VISA card was. They said the store input the info wrong and they wouyld only give us the $200 card per the AT&T promotion.
It has been many weeks now and still no VISA card in any amount.
This is definately a bait and switch promise - don't fall for any AT&T promotions!!!

unethical behaviour

I called to set up services and was told that I could not do to a past due bill. I was told they saw one past due balance of almost 100 dollars. I paid the bill and then got the run around for three days. When I spoke to another rep. I was told that there was another bill found over 300 dollars. Instead of telling me about both accounts they lied so that I would pay one and still not give me service. I was then told i would have to pay that bill before service. Just one big run around and no honesty. I should have been told up front about both bills, not one and then the other.

direct tv

I called Direct TV to TRANSFER our service from Stockton to our vacation home in Volcano. This would entail cancelling our service at the vacation home (which did not have a DVR). We wanted to take the DVR with us and connect it to our Direct TV service at our vacation home. I was told this was possible. BUT when we tried to hook it all up, NOTHING. A technician had to come--and he said the service in Stockton had been CANCELLED--and all my prerecorded movies/TV shows had been lost. At no time did I tell AT&T to cancel that service--we only wanted to TRANSFER IT. Now I get an ad in the mail asking us to come back to Direct TV. WE NEVER LEFT!!! There's an offer for $35/mo to come back to AT&T. Since you were so dumb as to cancel that service and goof up my DVR, you might want to give us this rate for awhile. We aren't really happy with Direct TV (it's WAY too expensive), but it's better than cable :-(

bundle pkg directv, home phone and internet

In approx the 1st wk of March, I spoke with a young lady to get all 3 services in a bundle. The monthly price quoted was $118.00. On March 13 my installation was supposed to take place between 8 and 12. At 8 am a direct tv van pulled up in front of the house. He set out his cones, got in van and was talking on his phone. 15 min later he got out picked up cones and drove off. A few minutes later I got a phone call saying someone was on there way.A young man from At &t arrived and set up internet and phone. When i inquired about Tv (direct Tv) he said someone else will be setting that up. 2pm rolled around still no one here. I called and their reply was a tech was there and said house was unassessible with dogs in back yard. First of all the backyard doesnt need to be entered, everything is in front outside of my backyard fence, the dogs which are harmless huskys were in a dog run inside the fence. Because it was later in the day the appt had to be rescheduled a wk later. This is not my fault the man never even came to the door. He lied maybe had better things to do. So... this is my understanding of why my services were not bundled initially, when that was the agreement when setting service up. Next...it tooks weeks and numerous phone calls of being on hold every time for more than 20 minutes each time to get my services bundled. Next...it was initially agreed that I did not want my phone number changed, Ive had the same number for 23 years [protected]. my family members told me they tried to call and is said the phone was disconnected. i called from my cell and sure enough it was. When I originally got your service I was still receiving calls at [protected]. So when they bundled my services I got a new bill with the phone number [protected]. i dont think so. I want my old number back. Nothing has been right from the very beginning and I am tired of spending hours on the phone to people who accept no responsibility or accountability. I was told I would receive a $200 reward. i got something in the mail for a $40 reward. Now when I try to get on the website and look at the claim number its disqualified, why??? This is not at all what was promised!!! I paid 61.92 to direct tv separately for the 1st month and 124.00 to att. This is way more than 118.00. I was told when arranging the service that with 3 bundle home land line, direct tv and internet, the phone would not have charge. I have spoken to agents who now tell me that there is no way there would be no charge for a landline. Why was I told this. Arent all of your calls recorded. My account number [protected] which I am now not able to access on line and could before.Also they sent me a letter saying my contact email [protected]@yahoo.com when it is [protected]@yahoo.com. Now I have a bill for 195.96 and upcoming bill for 162.96. I was recently told after my argument about the initial quote that my bill would be 140.00 combined all 3. that 3bundle would bring the phone down to 19.99 a month instead of 48.48. Also I was told there wasnt an installation fee. every time I get a bill it gets larger. I am going to the state board about this., I switched service for something more affordable . By the way, the reward center never answers a call nor is there the option on the website to chat with a rep like the message while your on hold says. In the last month I have spent over 350 minutes on the phone with your customer service reps and the reward center number to get (0) results. This is poorest most pathetic business experience I have ever had in my 52 years of life. I would not recommend your service to anyone! I am very sorry I came back as a customer and will never again, nor recommend to anyone. I hope we can reach a suitable agreement, if not, this complaint will go above and beyond AT&T. Thankyou

international cell service/billing

My wife traveled separately from our daughter to meet on a trip to Southeast Asia. Our daughter was going to away for about 6 weeks so she purchased the AT&T Passport plan for the trip. My wife, who has an older flip phone, purchased the International Day Pass so that she could be in touch with our daughter while on route. Turns out my wife's itinerary had to be moved almost 24 hours later, so, instead of meeting at the airport, arrangements had to be made for my wife to get to the hotel in Bali without meeting our daughter at the airport (she had arrived on schedule). My wife transferred planes in Taiwan where she had no service at all. She could not contact me in the U.S., nor could she contact our daughter in Bali. When she touched down in Bali she texted/talked to our daughter to make a number of arrangements. Our AT&T bill showed a charge of some $86 for texts/calls which should have been covered by both the Passport/International Day Pass plans. I called in to the customer service line, explained the situation (the usual 30 minutes plus) and was told I should play the bill minus the extra charges. But, SURPRISE!, I am now being charged again for those charges and being threatened because they are "past due". After another 35 minutes this morning on the phone with billing I was finally "offered" $70 off the charges. The rep claimed to have no notes saying those excess charges were going to be removed. I guess I should be the one taking notes! Amazing how much goes on that relies on us, as customers, having faith in company representatives, the ones who take the notes! In any event, after being a loyal customer for some 16 years - ever since I got a cell phone - sometimes enough is enough. I told the rep her manager could call me (he/she was not available at the time I called. I really think the manager hoped to buy me off with the $70 offer) since I could not accept AT&T retracting what we had agreed upon three weeks ago. We'll see what happens. I will say this: when it comes to international cell plans, buyer beware!!

wifi

Today I called the 800 number to see if there was a problem with the internet in my neighborhood. I was told by the the automated response system that it would be a five minute wait. Three hours later, I still hadn't been helped and had to leave my house. I've never experienced this in my life. Is this AT&T's way of discouraging customers to call in with questions?😡

sending a replacement devices with expired warranty.

I have been with AT&T for 2 years, I had 2 lines and had insurance on the 2 devices. on march 2019 I received 2 devices as a replacement for the 2 devices I had due to technical issues. after 30 days my wife's device was malfunctioning, so I called AT&T and they sent ma another replacement. 2 weeks later my phone started having issues, so I called AT&T since they told me that you will have 1 years warranty on your replacement but the refused to handle the issue because I switched to another provider and now I have a manufacturer warranty valid until march 2020, when I checked with apple their data indicated that my device warranty was expired on 2016, I tried to speak with several management level at AT&T and at the end the supervisor just ended the call from his side. by the way my wife's phone warranty was expired. so my conclusion that when you submit a claim they just send you a refurbished phone with issues and hoping that the device at least 30 days because after 30 days they don't take responsibility. I don't understand how they give me devices with 1 year warranty and when I need to use the warranty I discover that the warranty is expired. the manger lied on me and told me you have 1 year warranty just go to the manufacturer and they will replace it for you, I had to drive 30 minutes back and forth to apple service center because I trusted her and then I discover that AT&T just hire a group unprofessional personnel.

order pay per view via phone

3/27/19: Last night I attempted to buy a pay per view movie, starting at 9PM. I began the process of ordering by phone a approximately 8:30 pm. It told me to check my phone line after first try. Did so and tried again. No luck. Called customer serviced and now I have 6 minutes before the movie is to begin. The agent said she could help me buy the movie, then she transferred me to somewhere where the wait time was 9 minutes - way beyond the starting time for the movie. I hung up and redailed customer non-service and was told the wait time was 1 minute. After 5 minutes an agent came on the line - I has really mad by this time since I had missed the movie. He explained to me that AT&T was currently doing maintenance on the buy pay per view via phone, so that is why the option did not work. I was livid. Why was I not notified about this? So I would know about it and not waste time trying to dial up. The first agent did not seem to know anything about this. Poor, uninformed non-cusomer service is what it is. I have been with Direct/TV for 20 years - this may be my last year. I'm sick of incompetent customer service.

billing method

I am complaining about ATT's billing system. Today, my service was suspended because I had not paid on a...

multiple fraudulent dealings with att reps.

At 3:34 pm on Wednesday April 24th I placed a call to [protected] (length 51:15) and placed an order for ATT Fiber 300 and Uverse U300 as a bundle. I was advised the Fiber would be $40 per month and the U300 service would be $45 for the 12 month period of the agreement at which point the price of the U300 might fluctuate but the Fiber internet would stay at $40 as long as there was a bundle of some sort. I agreed to this and asked him to process this order During this conversation to get to this point I advised the employee in no uncertain terms that I did not want Directv and that he did not even need to look at pricing for it because I would not have it again, I was very clear about this and the package agreed upon was UVerse as stated by him and I both. He also promised a $250 visa gift card reward for the purchase of the bundle and advised me that we would have NFL Sunday ticket for free for a year as well (I was not aware at that time that the NFL Sunday ticket was Directv only). After finalizing the order, setting up the install time, and asking again $85 plus tax is the whole price and being assured it was we ended the call.
At 4:14 pm emails started arriving to confirm my "Directv Order" including a Directv contract, landlord signature form, account registration emails, and an emailing detailing my 24 month Directv agreement and order that I was to receive.
At 4:44 pm I placed another call to ATT this time to [protected] (length 1:18:53) to advise them of this problem. After some explanations I was transferred to the loyalty department to someone who was supposed to help (name may have been David, I am not sure). He kept me on the phone for 1 hour 18 minutes supposedly going back and forth with his supervisor discussing the problem of the other agent fraudulently placing this Directv order instead of what we discussed. Ultimately he did cancel the Directv order and that is the only thing that he did, none of the rest of what I am about to put in this statement was done on my account or added to the notes of my account. The end result of all of the back and forth between him and I and supposedly a supervisor who never actually got onto the phone themselves was the following. I was told the order for Uverse U300 was now placed and that unfortunately the best he could do on the monthly was $47, that there was no way to trigger the gift card that I was promised so they were going to put a credit on my account for the $250 and that also there was no way to give me NFL Sunday ticket so after some additional back and forth I was told there could be additional account credit of $150 so the Uverse U300 for $47, the Fiber 300 at the original agreed upon price of $40, contract term one year, and a total of $400 of account credit to be added as soon as my account was active. This was the promise made on this phone call.
I waited a little over the 24 hours for the account confirmation documents I was told would be emailed and when they didn't arrive I called back in at 7:07 pm April 25th (length 1:21:20) to find out where they were. At this point I was informed by the individual on the phone that the only thing he sees is that I have Fiber 300 getting installed and that the Directv is cancelled. No order placed for the U300 TV service and no notes at all relating to the conversations of the prior evening about the price of the U300 ($47) or the account credits ($400). After I got upset at this news the individual I was speaking with got a manager on the line (Jay-a tech support supervisor) who could not help me and he then got Stephanie from Loyalty on the phone. Stephanie could not fix anything that had been done, also advised me she did not see the notes from the night before, and supposedly took down my request for a supervisor to pull the two above calls and listen to them before calling me back as she promised they would. I am now awaiting the call from the supposed supervisor.

no sense of urgency to fix issue
