We have had wireless service with this company for 5 years. For the first two years, our bill was incorrect every month and we would call to have things corrected (usually requiring adding credits on their part). In January of 2005, we noticed they had dropped our secondary line out of the Family Plan and were charging us roaming and "other charges". They were asked then to add the phone. The phone showed up on our statement as part of the plan, but on their computer, they continued to bill us roaming and "other charges".
They owe us in excess of $300 but will not credit or reimburse us the money as we did not dispute all claims within 100 days in writing.
Of course, they have us over a barrell because it's written in fine print somewhere, but they are unethical as they say it's the customer's responsibility to review the bill each month to "catch" their errors.
I've been a happy BellSouth, Cingular customer for years but AT&T Mobility wireless service in the Metropolitan New Orleans, Louisiana region has gone from bad to worse. I'm an Information Technology guy and happily paid them the $330.00 to end my contract. I view them at best used car salesmen and at worse whores. Glad to pay them to go away. DO NOT use their wireless services.
After paying $200 for an LG Xenon mobile phone returned it because of a malfunction. AT&T then sends a "REFURBISHED" replacement that I could purchased for around $75-85. What happened to the $115 difference? And I have returned the refurbished phones several times and still am not satisfied with the product!!
Tried to reconfigure my settings on my cell and apparently messed something up. Went to my local AT&T store explained the problem (would not ring). They worked for several minutes and were unable to fix and gave me the tech support number to call - OH NO!! :(. Got home and called. 'Course got the "you will be helped when available" line :(.... less than 3 minutes later a guy named ** answered, listened to my problem, said wait a minute, and got it taken care of. Thanks AT&T. :) Good job.
CALIFORNIA -- Many times I've carefully composed letters and when I hit the "SEND" button... AT&T flashes a note on the screen that says: APPENDING MESSAGE FAILED... RETURN TO PREVIOUS PAGE, which means my carefully composed letter is LOST. When I use their member services to complain they send me a "generic" reply which is of no use.
