I recently upgraded my package from HBO only, to the HBO/Cinemax package with the 3 months free offer. I put the change request in online and it went through, but now one of my receivers no longer works. I get a client initialization error and it says that it is unprovisioned. When I look at my invoice I was credited for a partial month of one of my receiver fees. It appears that this receiver has been removed from my account. I did not request it to be removed. I have had 5 receivers since I switched to Uverse last May and always paid the $7 fee for the 3 additional receivers. Why was this receiver removed from my account and what do I need to do to have it restored. If I have to submit to a credit check after having service for 9 months, I find that to be unacceptable. My receiver needs to reactivated just like it has always been on my account. Can anyone assist?

Have you called Customer Service at the number shown in my signature?

I called customer support, and they referred me to tier 2. Tier 2 could not get the receiver to work and said I had to call someone else about credit or something like that. I dont have credit on file or something like that. I lost the number he gave me. My issue is that my credit was run when my service was installed in May. If I have to submit to another credit check, that is totally unacceptable and I will refuse. All 5 receivers have worked from day 1. I just need someone to turn this box back on without any extra steps or credit checks. I did not request this box to be turned off so ATT needs to turn it back on no questions asked. I pay over $200 a month for this service. The TV is great but the internet is subpar. Im tired of moving a receiver from bedroom to kitchen so my toddler can eat and watch pocoyo in his high chair. Do you know the number to tier 2 or this mystery credit group?

I don't know what that means or what that is referring to.
I would suggest that you send a PM to AT&T Customer Care who can help get your issue resolved. Also, check the settings on your account to make sure that you will receive email notification when a PM is received on this forum.

If your credit scale for U-verse changed from Low or Medium risk to High risk, you now can only have 4 STBs. Normally credit risks degrade because you were late and/or didn't pay your bill. When you are on-time with your bill for the next few months, the credit risk will reflect the change accordingly.
It's doesn't generally change by a 'credit check'. It changes because you didn't pay your bill in a timely manner.
