LOGANVILLE, GEORGIA -- The person in IL should be careful where he/she wants to move to. I am also in a cornfield state where AT&T delivers HORRIBLE service for prices that keep going up and up and up. They offer great deals that never remain the same for even 2 billing cycles. You may have the "norm". God forbid!!!

WICHITA, KANSAS -- I tried checking my balance on the app. It wouldn't take my password so I changed it. It wouldn't take that password. An error message with the customer service number pops up so I call it. It sends me to the wrong place. I end up getting transferred 5 times because no one can send me to the right place. It took 40 minutes just to get my balance. Just awful customer service.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- They need to hire more English speaking individuals. Always issues with the cable, like daily. I absolutely cannot stand dealing with this company. On hold forever. Person cannot understand English. Issue unresolved. Ugh. Should never have gotten AT&T! Everyone has the same complaints. Why doesn't this billion dollar company fix their issues? Can I give a zero star rating?

I have had a contract for a long time. Will not let me out of the last less than two months without a fee. Changed my plan without my consent or knowledge. Do not recommend this company and don't recommend getting into a contract ever again.

Duped Into Getting a "Free" Hot Spot.

OVIEDO, FLORIDA -- I am writing regarding the above number associated with the "free" hot spot I was practically forced to take home with me when I upgraded from my trustworthy flip phone to the Samsung Galaxy S4 last summer.

When I bought the upgrade I was told the phone "came with a free hot spot." I told the salesperson I did not even know what a hot spot was and did not want it. The salesperson, eventually aided by a second, insisted that I could not possibly turn down such a wonderful device, especially when I got it for free. They asked me if I had children and I said yes. They made it sound like I would be nominated for parent of the year if I had no use for it and passed it down to them. I kept declining and they kept insisting. It was basically implied (using all that good salesmanship training from AT&T) that I would be a fool not to take it. Who turns down a free gift like that?

And a fool I was. My bills kept getting higher and I kept getting tagged $15 every time the hot spot's usage went over the GBs included in my plan. At first I did not pay much attention (even after I realized there was a $20 monthly fee associated with the device which I also had not been made aware of). But then it really started to get out of control. In order to keep up with the little monster (the hot spot) I had to upgrade my plan 1, 2 maybe 3 times with more GBs until I finally could not pay my bill. I told my daughter I was sorry, I was canceling it, and assumed it was a matter of disabling the thing and changing to a cheaper plan just for my phone.

You are very, very smart. That is why you are making millions and I had to file for bankruptcy last week, not that you would care. I stuck my neck out to defend you whenever friends and acquaintances mentioned in passing you were the worst, most corrupt wireless company (or should I say spineless).

Two weeks ago I called AT&T to ask that they suspend immediately any services associated with the little monster, only to be told that I had signed a 2-year contract for my "free gift," (you know, the small print). Nobody told me during all that haggling that I was signing a 2-year contract for the hot spot. What was really important for them was that I, your customer of 10+ years, walked out of that store with the little monster. "For free."

I escalated my phone call three times until I reached a manager called **. All he did for me, in order to not incur a $99 penalty for breaking the contract, was to adjust my bill so I would only have to pay $10 instead of $20 for being the proud owner of the little monster (without using it).

Again, I am sure you do not care about the amount of financial stress I have been under lately but I conceded, lowered my plan to 2 GBs and left it at that. I had bigger problems. Now that my bigger problems are behind me, I decided to contact you to inform you of the following: I will not pay $10 a month for the deactivated hot spot. I will subtract $10 from every bill you send me from now on.

Let me know how you will punish me, harass me, sue me or otherwise try to make my life difficult. Bring it on. I know people with the same plan I have (different providers) who pay $30 a month. I hope you will extend me the courtesy of a reply, preferably in writing.

TO THIS DATE 10/20/2014 I HAVE NOT HEARD FROM AT&T OR RECEIVED THE REQUESTED WRITTEN REPLY.

Worst Company Ever!

So I have been a customer with AT&T for over a year now and I needed to get wifi so I thought I would get it from AT&T since I was already with them and I actually liked their cell service. I paid them $100 to get the internet and then after they took the $100 from me they cancelled my service and told me that something went wrong with the payment.

They emailed me to call them to fix this which I did and then I wait on the line for over 10 min to talk to someone about this "problem" then they answer me that I should wait 48 hours and it might work... They emailed me to call them just to tell me that I should wait longer because it "might" work! Fine I give it time and then I call them again and they tell me the same thing and they tell me they will email me with the details. I wait to get the email but I never get it. By this time I am way too tired to keep calling them to get no help whatsoever and so I log onto the live chat.

They transfer me 3 times on the chat to someone who would be able to help me and I end up having a girl by the name of Regina help me and she tells me I will need to wait 7-10 business days to get my money back but if I want the internet I will have to pay the $100 again. Now I have spent 2 days (days that I had other important plans for) trying to get the money back. All I got from these people was they were rude and condescending and now I am so mad that I am going to cancel my phone service with them and I will never have anything to do with them again! They are literally the worst kind of people there are!

Service is Terrible and Customer Service is Worst

SUWANEE, GEORGIA -- On Sat (10/17), my service was interrupted, which happens frequently. Why is AT&T even in the cable game? Somehow my account was suspended without my knowledge and consent. I asked the representative how my account could be cancelled when every time I call in, I'm required to give my PIN. No one other than me has access to my account, right? Aren't I the only party with the authority to cancel my account? No one at U-verse seems to know how it happened or why. Certainly, it's not a billing issue. Payment is deducted automatically each month, which is U-verse's requirement.

I've called several times yesterday and today trying to get answers as to what's going on with my account. I'm bounced around from dept to dept; dumped on unsuspecting reps - having to explain my situation again. Two calls were dropped and even though I was asked for my callback number nobody called me back. I had to call and pretty much start all over again explaining the issues. Further, I was told several times that service would be reconnected: first by COB, then by midnight, then again between 2 and 3 p.m. And the customer service - or lack thereof - is awful (particularly a manager by the alleged name of Roxanne).

I was offered $20 for my inconvenience as if they're doing me a favor. I work from home a lot so internet service is crucial. This ongoing interruption is more than inconvenient for me and costs more than a mere $20. Today, David, informs me that I have to reinstate my account in order to regain service. No way. I'm already deep into my second year in a contract with U-verse. Why would I want to start over when the service and customer service is so terrible?

It's 10/22 and I'm still without service. I have meritorious reasons to nullify this contract since I have continual interruption of service and this latest incident with my account being arbitrarily cancelled. There must be a class action coalescing somewhere. No way I'm the only one suffering through a contract with U-verse.

LA, CALIFORNIA -- The worst company ever. They introduced me that they have a reward $300.00 for each line if I switch to AT&T, and including iPhone 6 for free. After signing up and ordered the phones for myself and the rest of my family, I went to one of their stores to activate. The store worker told me I have to pay every month for the phones and immediately I returned them. For the last five months they claim that I have to pay every month and keep charge me, on the other hand, they admit they have received the phones.

In the mean time they charged me about $193.00 + 19.00, I never seen such a cheating company. Every time I call I have spend at least an hour to talk to an agent. If I am lucky finding an agent that agent transfers me to another... Etc. They sound nice on the phone but on the real job they are scammer... Rude. Is there any way that I can get back my money? Should I go to dispute? I am really angry.

NEW YORK -- I've been an AT&T customer for about 15 years. When deciding regarding signing 2 year contract vs no contract discussed fees and got a response in writing. Called several times to confirm. Everyone I spoke with did confirm what I had in writing. Based on those prices I purchased new phone in AT&T store and signed contract with 2 weeks free exchange/return window. Call Ed 2 times during 2 weeks and got written pricing via text msg and verbal confirmation on pricing.

Based on that info decided to keep 2 y contract. As soon as the outrageous bill arrived called AT&T and was told that written confirmation and all verbal ones are noted on my account. AT&T is aware what I was told since I had all names of reps who I spoke with written done, but AT&T apologizes for "incorrect info" provided to me prior to signing contract but will not adjust bill or provide any mercy for their errors. I have lost $350 due to their fraud, lies, errors, scam. Extremely disappointed. The most unprofessional, rude, dishonest service one can ever receive from any organization. Scam. Stay away!!!

OCALA, FLORIDA -- When I signed up for AT&T wireless and DirecTV as a package I was told that my quoted rate would be locked in for one year with the promotion. After six months AT&T's rate nearly doubled from what it was with the promotion. After numerous calls and speaking with numerous people, many of whom were rude, I have yet to get the promotion rate back. They said it says clearly in the documents that it is only for 6 months.

Well, I don't care what the documents are the promotion was a one-year lock-in. Needless to say I am in the process of DUMPING AT&T. Do not sign up with them before getting the so-called "documents" because they are liars. I would give them negative stars if it were possible!!!
