My sad AT&T U-verse long & winding story
Posted by Wornoutfromat&t on 09/30/2007
MENTOR, OHIO -- If a sales rep comes to your door, pretend you are not home. Here goes my long and winding story:

The first install tech wanted to drill holes all over my 10 year old pre-wired for cable home and run wires under carpets and along floorboards and over doors etc. He left his cell phone behind after I told him please cancel order and I waited 3 hours for him to return for it. Then a week later he called to say he had left his drill in my basement!

Oh yeah and he told me he cancelled the order but I had to spend hours on the phone after receiving bills for the service never installed and a promise that I would get a $100 VISA card for my problems. Haven't seen the VISA card yet and will probably have to spend 20-30 minutes on the phone tracking it down.

After that a box arrives telling me to return the equipment that the tech took with him so another hour on the phone.

So anyway another sales rep calls and I tell him my sad story but hubbie wants NFL network which our local cable company doesn't carry so out of love I say let's try again with a good install tech because I stopped some techs in the neighborhood who told me the whole house didn't have to be rewired and existing cable lines could be used. So sales rep arranges to meet me at dinner time but unbeknownst to him another rep in the neighborhood just happens to knock on my door at dinner time and steal the first rep's sale because I thought the wandering sales rep was the one coming at dinner time. So anyway, the first rep calls me to say the second rep stole his sale and I'd have to cancel that order etc. Well his boss I guess says "no" so I get a call to just leave things as they are.

Glutton that I am I still go ahead with an install date for this second attempt but upon calling for something I can't even remember now I am assigned a new account number and a new install date.

The night before old install date computer calls my house and tells me techs are coming on old install date. I ignore computer and go shopping because no one ever showed.

Second install tech comes and tells me the first tech put inside wiring on the outside of my house. Second tech gets things up and running.

Second tech tells me to call the 800 number to get my promised free movies. Three hours later (enough for antenna phone battery to die) and tethered to a wired phone I finally get to a really good tech who calls me over the next 5 hours to update me on progress and starts my movies -- no problemo and I love him. There are horror stories of 2 weeks to get the movies!

Uh oh - sound on t.v. has terrible buzz so get on phone for another marathon and work with remote etc. until we decide another tech will come to the house and put an RF adapter on my old t.v. Looks all funky Medusa-like beside the t.v. with wires coming out of it but sound improves.

So far cable service freezes daily for a couple minutes at a time (guess we're lucky it straightens itself out). Scanning channels to see what is on is tedious and slow. Another wandering sales rep told us there was a library of 12,000 movies to choose from on demand. That was some kind of a sales pitch! You get a few of the movies that are on the pay cable movie channels and not even all of them!

Internet service is slower and more aggravating than dial up. Even though the computer icon says we have full signal, pages load when they feel like it. The wait is 2-15 minutes to load a page when the "internet gremlin" strikes which today has been all day. It took me hours to get here to write this sad story!

So here I sit broken hearted -- hundreds of dollars going to be charged -- and never started!

P.S. After U-verse Tech Support told me to disable my firewall and my virus program (which of course I didn't do), I accidentally discovered that (a) the wire wasn't plugged securely into the back of the router and (b) after unplugging the router to untangle the 30 different wires
which were pulling the router wire out, the router must have reset itself because the internet is now working perfectly! Heal thyself!

I had a similar experience with AT&T u-verse installation in LIvonia. They were the new providers in town after having now choice for twenty years. I jumped on the bandwagon and signed up for the whole shot, the u-verse 400, all those movie ans sports channels.
Well there was one cancellation, when there had to be a cable run to my house. The technichian came on Monday and started tearing our old cables from my current provider and putting in new cables and said he would be using a few of the cable that was already there. I have a finished basement so he was taking out ceiling panels all over the basement. They had not laid the cable yet which caused the first cancellation, so he had to call in and two guys came out and laid the cable while the original tech was still setting things up inside, then they conferred, then he works some more, after about nine hours I see him standing around and ask him, is there a problem, he said no, just waiting for a call from my boss. So as we were sitting down to dinner, he comes in and says, you can't get our service here, now I live about a thousand feet from one of their panels. So I say, ok, then put things back as you found them, he said, I don't know the system of your other provider, you will have to call them. He left, wires dangling down all over the basement, panels out of place and all, so I tried to call someone and talk to them about this, after getting switched to about the fifth person, I got yelled out until I asked the lady to stop yelling and listen to herself and see if she was not ashamed. Anyway all she said was, its up to you to get your old provider out to re-install your service. I said ok and what about all the panels that are out, she said thats not our problem. So I filed a complaint with the public service commission, they contacted AT&T who said they had been trying to contact me, they never once had tried to contact me. I finally got to talk to ther person who was handling my case at AT&T and told her, I want to make this civil and professional, so lets keep it at a civil level, she says, it really doesn't matter to me, I can handle it either way, I am prepared for either event. Needless to say, I got nothing out of the conversation.
I would urge anyone who is thinking of switching to At&T u-verse to think hard and long about it, it can become a nightmare, it did for me.

Support Plus is the best way to solve any issues you may be having! Also, if you had requested Connectech (At and t geek squad) to install, you wouldn't have had any of these issues to begin with! It's a one tine $50 at point of sale and you're guaranteed the best Tech to take care of all your high tech installation!!

What a Mess
Posted by GTB on 07/10/2007
LIVONIA, MICHIGAN -- I was to get the new AT&T U-verse cable television installed in my house on June 11. The technichian arrived around nine in the morning and begin to work, tearing out my existing cable, installing new cables and bringing in the new equipement. He said he had to wait for a new cable to be run from the cable box to my house but the guy would arrive soon. Two guys did come and install a new cable, left on top of the ground. The tech worked some more and after about eight hours I noticed him standing around and I asked him if there was a problem, he said no he was waiting for a call from his supervisor. Well after about another hour he comes in and says, we can't get you cable here, you are too far away from the box, its just around the cornor. So I said ok are you going to restore my old service, he said I will try but am not familiar with their system. Well he left after a few minutes with cables still hanging down, no phone service, no internet and one television that worked. I called and complained and they said, its your problem to get it fixed, no ours. No one will respond to me since. So Beware.

My first complaint regards the high pressure salesmen that pestered me and my 83 year old neighbor. In order to get fiber optic Internet for no increased fee, I had to try U-Verse for a month.

Fortunately, I made them set it up so I could continue to use Direct TV.

They took the better part of a day installing U-Verse, and managed to drill a hole in my gas meter! Nothing exploded.

U-Verse worked for the remainder of the day. It didn't work the next day. I spent a really long time on the phone with tech support. They didn't solve the problem. I got it to work later in the day. It worked for a few hours, but it no longer works at all.

U-verse will be removed and nothing will get me to try it again.

Beware of AT&T Uverse. I have had so many problems. Originally they were to install on a certain date. I took the day off from work and they never showed up. When I called they told me my install was for the following day. This is absolutely not true. I had written the original date on my calendar and also called to confirm a week before my install date. As I had taken the day off work I told them to cancel. The next morning AT&T call to tell me the installer is on his way. My husband stayed home to let the guy in. I tried from the day I agreed to have this uverse installed to give a friend of mine the credit. They said no problem. When I called to make sure my friend would get the credit, I was told "sorry, too late, you had to have it all set up before we came out, it's in the terms and conditions" Well, I never recieved a terms and conditions until after it was installed. Just another way to keep their money. Now I've been trying to get my 100.00 gift card. BEWARE. They don't tell you that you have to go to the website and redeem your credit. If you wait too long, you are out of luck. I thought, because I wasn't told any thing, that they would just send me the credit. NO... you have to go to the website to redeem, then it takes another 4-6 weeks. That's what they told me when i inquired about my cash back.

I can not support a company like AT&T, which is sad because my own mother retired from that company. I will definitely change cable companies.

Also, customer service is normally rude. Check Consumer Reports for the rating on AT&T. It's true

Poor AT&T Uverse Service
Posted by Piano man on 03/16/2010
I left Comcast in October 2009 after I was introduced to AT&T me. I was told this service offered by AT&T was the Cadillac of Internet and Cable services. I must admit, after the Uverse was installed in my home, my family was very impressed with the product. I told every family and friend about AT&T Uverse service. Until I had a billing issue in January 2010 and my service was disconnected. I thought once the billing issue was resolved, my services will be restored in an hour. Wrong, it took AT&T three days to restore my services. I continue to use AT&T Uverse. The billing issue happen again this month, March 2010. My phone services were disconnected and I spoke with Customer Service to resolve the billing issue and I was told my phone services will be restored in one hour. This was on a Thursday evening and no phone services were restored Thursday night or Friday morning. I called AT&T Uverse technical support and I was told to unplug my modem and my services will be working again. I unplugged the modem and now I have no Internet or cable services. I stayed on the phone with
technical support for over 30 minutes Friday afternoon and than another hour Friday night to get my services restored, but no luck! Finally, I was told a technician will be at
my home between 12:00 pm - 4:00pm on Sat. I stayed at home for the technician to
come by, but no one ever came. I called technical support at 2:20 pm and was told someone will be at me home by 4:00. No one called or showed up. I called again at
4:30 pm and was told someone will be at my home in 30 minutes no one never came
by. I called at 8:00 pm and was told the technician wil be at my home in 45 mins, but
one came by. I called technical support at 10;00 pm and they scheduled someone to
come by Sunday between 12:00 pm -4:00 pm. Finally a technician came at 5:05 pm
Sunday, but was unable to get my services restored. The technician requested a field
technician to come by my home on Monday, but no one never came by. I called
technical support on Monday around 5:30 pm and was told a ticket for the field
technician was never generated and that another technician will have to come by
before a field technician can come by. Finallly, I had enough of AT&T circus games. I
requested AT&T Uverse to cancel all my services which I was paying about a $1000 a month for the cell phone services, home phone, Internet and cable services in two
homes. Now Comcast is very happy to regain me as a customer. I also made sure all
the family and friends that I recommended AT&T Uverse were aware of the poor
services.

Don't switch until you've been informed completely - wish I read the blogs sooner!
Posted by Vmcnow on 06/15/2009
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- Wow! I don't even know where to begin explaining the horrible service I've received from AT&T.

I was completely misled from the very first salesperson that showed up at my door. I informed the guy that I have AT&T business class services set up for DSL & phone that are paid for by my company & I wasn't leary about switching from Comcast Cable to AT&T U-Verse Advanced TV because I didn't want my business services disrupted in any way. I was assured not only by the salesman, but also be the installer who showed up 2 days later, that there would be no interruption in my business services because they would set up the U-Verse TV to come in on a separate line.

When the installer left, everything was working fine...until the next morning...my DSL was down! I called tech support for my business DSL services and was told that my account was showing "cancelled-converted to U-Verse". You can imagine my surprise and upset after being told that! Apparently, after the fact, they told me that it's not possible for me to have AT&T business class services & AT&T U-Verse at the same address (even if coming in on different lines).

Anyway, as I tried to get my business class services reinstated, while at the same time telling them if the services are incompatible U-Verse has to go; I continued to get the run around. I was transferred, hung up on, never called back and so on. I had one representative telling me it couldn't be done, tech support saying it can be and all I wanted was a definitive answer & my DSL restored.

Finally, after over two weeks (and supposedly a presidential escalation), manager overrided the system to allow for my U-Verse to come in on a stand-alone line and billed to my home address & my business DSL/phone to be billed to my company based in CA. After 3 cancelled account #s and hours of time back & forth with manager, techinians, etc, they even offered me an upgraded package for my trouble. All worked great and I was a pleased customer to have my business services up & running, not to mention I actually liked the U-Verse TV...but, of course...something happened yet again...

About a week later, I received a final bill for one of the accounts that was supposed to have been cancelled at no charge. When I called customer service to clear it up, the agent that I spoke with told me that she cleared the charge and the account has been closed properly. Later that evening, I sat down to watch TV and to my surprise, it wasn't working. I called tech support to find out if service was down in my area and was told that my account was cancelled as of earlier that day. I explained to him that I didn't authorize the cancellation of that particular account # and that I had actually called in about a completely different account, but there was nothing he could do. I couldn't call customer service back because, of course, it was after hours...

The next day, I called customer service and asked them to reinstate my account that their agent had cancelled without my authorization. Once again, I was told over and over again that if they reinstate my U-Verse account it will cancel my business services because I can not have both services coming into the same address. I tried explaining to them that they were running on two separate lines already for over a week and everything was fine until their agent cancelled the order, but once again I was transferred, hung up on, and promised a call back...it didn't happen.

I've been in touch with the technicians that installed the service and they've all explained to me that from a technical standpoint, it can be done; the problem is their customer service software/system isn't set up to bill different services separately. I keep being told that U-Verse can't be installed if a customer has DSL service already from another provider (even if the other provider is AT&T business)...a bunch of crap if you ask me, especially since both services were up and running with no issues for just over a week! Seems to be a ploy the U-Verse side to force customers to sign up for U-Verse DSL even if they really don't want it!

I'm now going on my 2nd week of NO TV services at all, because since I was promised by several managers that they would make it happen for me, I cancelled my Comcast service. Now Comcast says they will have to charge me installation fees again (per room, I might add) and I won't qualify for any special promotions for 90 days since I was currently under one before I cancelled.

In the meantime, AT&T has pretty much given me the attitude of "Oh well, sorry about your luck". So now, I'm researching alternatives to take my business class services elsewhere as I no longer with to do business with AT&T at all.

I lost 2 weeks+ of productivity for work due to the interruption of my business services, not to mention the money I have to shell out to get Comcast set back up. Now after reading all these messages, I'm even more worried that my credit card on file with AT&T is going to be hit with a charge for the equipment that they promised "to have a technician pick up if as long as I cancel within 30 days of installation" as part of 30-day trial period...this doesn't seem to be the case since I received a notice that I have 21 days to ship the equipment back or I'll be charged! YIKES! Here we go again...

If there's a class action suit against them, please include me!

Here's the latest update on this...

So, an AT&T tech supervisor (not a customer service agent) put in a claim for me with a company called Sedgewick(which of course is hired by AT&T) to try to help figure out a way to basically make my complaint go away. The woman that called me said that she's talked to several managers, etc. and they've all relayed that their company policy is to not allow U-Verse if DSL services at an address with another provider (even if the other provider is AT&T Business Services). They're now trying to insist they told me of this policy from the very start but tried to give me services anyway and it failed. What? The very first salesman & installer both told me it was possible and hooked up services only for my DSL to go out for 2 weeks! Once everything was said & done (after all the back & forth), both services were working great until an overzealous customer service agent manually cancelled the wrong account!!!!! Nothing failed except their customer service agent's ability to focus and manage accounts accurately!

Anyway, the woman at Sedgewick states that in order to compensate for the trouble, AT&T is willing to pay me $160 so that I can get Comcast reinstalled & cover the difference of a higher monthly rate for losing my promotion rate that I was under. I asked about compensation for the 2 weeks that I was unable to work because of the disruption to my DSL services & was told "if you can provide proof of that" then they'll look into it more...um, hello! The proof of me not being able to work should be apparent since my DSL was NOT working for 2 weeks and there are services orders to prove that! To top it all off, she certainly didn't hesitate trying to make a big deal about all of the money that AT&T has spent trying to accommodate an issue that I supposedely wouldn't let go...and they would not take accountability for constantly misleading me through the yo-yo effect of "yes we can, no we can't" even though I gave them several opportunities to just be straigt up with me and take U-Verse out...NO, they had to keep pushing the U-Verse.

Then, I requested that arrangemements be made to send a technician out to pick up all of the U-Verse equipment & that I want something in writing, stating that all of it was returned and when. Guess what I was told next? Shocker...they don't provide receipts! After being told that, I explained about all the horror stories I've been reading online about people being charged hundreds of dollars for equipment that was returned and I don't want that happening to me. The comment I got back was, "you can't believe everything you read online." I said, "regardless, when I returned my cable box to Comcast, I was given a receipt; so I expect the same when returning hundreds of dollars worth of equipment to AT&T...and quite frankly, I don't trust AT&T at this point and I have a right to protect my ass from further abuse!"

U-Verse is a Half Baked Product
Posted by Kittyrocka on 11/10/2007
NORTH DALLAS, TEXAS -- U-verse is a half baked product and I should have seen the signs from far away…

1) Young hoodlum of a sales rep approaches my door to sell me TV service (who the hell goes around door to door solicitation customers, only Bible sellers and Jehovah witnesses)
2) They could never verify my account
3) IVR Phone system when calling into Customer Support takes you into a black hole of repetitive confirmation of your billing telephone number
4) Tech guy looked and smelled like a hoodlum as well.
5) Has no PPV or features as promised
6) I have to point my remote to the dang box
7) The transition from channel to channel has a 3 second delay
8) Shows in the middle of reception are interrupted by a “No signal” error message

The list goes on…do yourself a big favor stay with your current Dish/Cable network.. avoid AT&T they are a bunch of incompetent idiots...

'I have to point my remote to the dang box'

Well, duh! Where else would you point it if you want to change the channel????

Do us a favor.... point the remote at your head & press the power button, and see if it'll turn your brain back on. Sounds to me like it got shut off somehow.
Posted by DigitalCommando on 2007-11-11:
Miantani, a good remote control nowadays can be pointed almost anywhere in the room and it will still work. The cheap and older remotes, do require pointing directly at the unit. Kitty has listed more than enough problems to cause an unknowing buyer to at least investigate more fully, instead of just assuming that a farce like AT&T could actually produce a product that at least works, or, does not spy on you. AT&T's new motto should be "At AT&T, We bring your entire world...... to the NSA" I for one would never do business with them on any level. If you would like to know what these w.h.o.r.e.s have been up to, google: eff vs at&t. (VH)

It is true. Vonage is not that good, but I was talking with a Vonage rep in New Jersey and I told him that I heard that AT&T goes around door to door to sell u-verse. And sure enough they came a week after that call. I signed up for it and the incompetent rep says she could offer me TV/Internet/Phone for $69/month. I asked her over and over again and she verified it. She also said she can offer me $100 cash back and 1 month free of TV. Then she called AT&T and they said we cannot have that promo. I called her about 2 hours after I ordered it and she said, no it is for TV and Internet only. I canceled it, what a liar. Comcast may be greedy, but at least they do not go door to door selling their services like girl scout cookies.

AT&T Billing
Posted by Shlbycindy43 on 01/24/2013
If you use AT&T for your Internet, home phone, or Uverse service do not do auto pay or allow them to debit your checking account for payments. They will use your account as their own personal piggy bank.

I actually had no problems with them until I added the Uverse service to my account and allowed the auto pay. After that they always took more than was shown on the actual bill and even took two payments out in November. When I asked them why they had deducted two payments they said I had not paid my service in July. I have all of my statements showing that each bill was paid every month, in full, and on time. There was no indication on any bills I received that I had failed to make a payment. When I told them this they said my bill was not accurate and refused to credit my account.

The last straw was when they did it again in December without any explanation. I actually had chest pains when I tried to talk to billing and customer service. One representative yelled at me and basically called me a liar even though she was looking at the same bill I had and could offer no explanation for the two additional charges. They continuously took twenty to thirty dollars more out of my account every month without any explanation. I canceled my service in December because of this and went back to my cable company. I also paid what they said was the final bill and sent all of my equipment back to them. For added insurance I went to the bank and put a stop on any further payments to their company.

Last Friday, a month after I cancelled my service, I checked my bank statement online and saw they had again deducted almost $200.00 for service I no longer have. Of course this was a holiday weekend so I had to wait until Tuesday to speak to anyone about it. My bank told me that the original request from AT&T was denied due to the stop payment I had placed on my account. At that point AT&T changed their merchant I. D. number and the debit went through. I've also contacted AT&T and have been told my money would be refunded in 30-45 days. I told them I wanted it returned NOW and have filed a dispute with my bank against AT&T. The bank has told me the money should be returned to my account in the next 5 days due to the dispute I had to file.

I've also been told this is a common practice of AT&T and the bank files more disputes against them than any other company. The Uverse service was great and I hated to cancel but their billing practices are unethical and they treat your checking account like their own personal piggy bank. I am considering filing charges against them with the Attorney Generals office. This company's billing practices needs to be investigated. They also need to get some billing and customer service reps who know what they're doing.

U-verse is more like re-verse
Posted by Mutineer7 on 03/28/2008
PALMDALE, CALIFORNIA -- When I moved into my neighborhood about 6-months ago, I called AT&T for DSL service. At that time all they offered was dial-up, which struck me as odd since their competition was offering Fiber. Since dial-up didn't meet my needs, I ended up with a cable modem. Last Saturday two sales people came knocking on my door selling U-verse. I liked what they were offering, and signed up for the package. I was told I would receive a call within the hour to schedule my installation. No call came, so on Monday I called to see what was up. After being bounced around and left on hold endlessly, I was eventually connected to the right person, who told me the installation was scheduled for Wednesday of the same week. Unfortunately I couldn't make that day, and we rescheduled for the following Friday. So far so good....I thought. On Wednesday I got a phone call from a very irritated technician who was waiting outside my door wondering where I was. I explained that I had rescheduled, and immediately called customer service again.

Surprise surprise, they had no record of my call from Monday, apologized profusely, and scheduled me again for Friday. Friday came, and the window for installation they had given me came and went. I called yet again, and this time was told that my installation had been scheduled for the following Tuesday (April 1st oddly enough). The claimed that an unexplained problem had caused the installation to be rescheduled, but couldn't explain either the problem or when it had been discovered. I can only guess sometime after the original installer had been there on Wednesday. The nice lady on the phone apologized profusely (I suspect they have a script for this) and promised to have it taken care of immediately. Rather than leave me on hold, she took my number and promised to call back "in just a few minutes" with a solution. One hour later I called back.

This time I was told that I had been scheduled for the next day. When I asked when they planned on communicating that to me, the apologized profusely (Deja vu). By now I had had enough, and asked that that they cancel the entire order, since I could only guess their product would be just as good as their installation service. I was immediately transferred to a manager, who after hearing my story responded with "Oh. So you want to cancel or what?"

If you can't get the basics right, like installation, how can you expect to manage something truly complex, like a fiber optic network.

I too had some issues with the initial install. What should have taken a normal 2-3 hours, took an absimal 6-7 hours. The technician was apologetic; however the sad state of the matter is that it took longer then it should have.

Now I am having an issue with the rebate that was offered to me, enough to file a complaint with the FCC. You can review some of the trial and tribulations at http://stevanpierce.blogspot.com With an issue such as this with my account, it makes me wonder how many others out there are having issues with the rebates.

Anyone else with rebate issues?

Do Not Get U-Verse
Posted by Jlh100 on 07/31/2010
I had AT&T U-verse installed mar 18, 2010. Almost every day, will be watching program and loose sound for about 30 seconds, sometimes 8 - 10 times a day. Also, sometimes picture freezes.

Will be calling Monday and have them come pick their crap up. If I'm gonna pay big bucks for this crap - I at least want to hear it. AT&T U-verse sucks. Use rabbit ears if you have to but don't use U-verse.

I thought that it was a good thing to bundle everything together, but everytime i call they need a order for someone to come out and tell me that i will have to pay them 55 dollars. i am on the phone with someone from att and she is giveing me a hard time now. Just because it sounds good it's does not mean it is good. Sorry company.

Don't take the bait!

ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- $200 cash back incentive is awesome. Until you realize what you get from AT&T is bad service, "surprise" fees and faulty equipment! I have had AT&T U-Verse service for a little over 2 months and have had nothing but trouble! The main box to our house went out the first month - dead battery. I also wanted to add cable to a third room. I was told the new box would just be $7 a month - great. However - the next week I see a box charge of $55 and a trip charge for $55 - $110 more than the quoted $7. Our bill was over $350, which should be criminal! Just a few weeks later another box in our home went out. Isn't there a lemon law for cable service? Everything they have installed has been faulty and I'm overcharged every time I get a bill. So - don't take the carrot of $200 back - they get it back (and some) - one way or another!

I don't know if it is lack of training or just plain stupidity which fans problems with UVerse. I have had nothing but problems with ATT, and have concluded the product is not ready for the massive rollout they are currently pressing on the public

You had better have good credit!

If your credit score does not measure up, At&T expects you to give them a $450 non-refundable deposit in order to get U-Verse. It doesn't go toward anything and you never get it back. This includes if you've been a long standing customer and have no pay issues with them. They have FOREVER lost this customer!

That's what non-refundable means.

It s not lost however, it is applied to your final billing.
