AT&T U-Verse Complaint - Dishonest Product Promotion
WARNING - Long story short - the first bill will be at least 3 times what you were told. The worst mistake I ever made! A U-Verse representative came to my door and signed me up. I agreed to pay $179 a month for TV, internet, and telephone service. I was told that the first bill would include charges for a month plus a pro-rated charge for part of a month. I was told installation was completely free and the U-Verse techs would connect all my devices, which I listed. He GAVE ME A PAPER STATING THIS! The technicans that installed the system also left a paper showing $0 for installation. The first bill was $560, including a $290 installation charge. During this time the service failed, so now I had no TV, no internet, and the telephone remained on the local carrier with another separate charge. Multiple calls to U-Verse did reduce the installation charge, but they did not completely remove it. I called and cancelled the television service and specifically asked about the monthly bill. They said it would be $43. The next bill was &179. So I figure they just triple what they tell you. Then they had the gall to send me a notice threatening to cancel my service if I do not pay don't pay. I will be very surprised if U-Verse lasts more than a couple of years. Word is bound to get out. You can't set out to purposely mislead and cheat people and expect not to have repercussions.
