Worst Customer Service I have EVER received at AT&T
I called to pay my bill over the phone as I have done every month for the past sometime now. I then realized that my bundle pricing must have expired, as my bill was almost $100 more than it usually is. I asked for customer service, and was conected with a person. This person gave me a billing/internet option I was not interested in (would have only brought my bill down $20). They then passed me on to customer loyalty. After waiting on hold, I was then connected with someone who told me that an order was "pending' on my account, and that it would take sometime to "drop off". This person then told me they would call back at 2. They didn't. I ended up calling back at 4, getting passed to customer service, having no resolve, waiting on hold again, and being connected with someone in Loyalty again. This women told me that the pending order was still stuck on my accout, that she has messaged the person who put it in to cancel it, and that i needed to call on Saturday to see if it was cancelled.
I call Saturday, get connectecd with customer service, they can't help me because, after a 20 minute conversation, this peding order is still stuck. I ask them to pass me to Loyalty, where i then sit for the next 25 minutes on hold. after 1 hour and 7 minutes of being on hold and talking to people who cant help me, i speak to another person in loyalty who assures me that her supervisor has been passed all of my information and that this person will come up with a bundle price that I will be "very pleased" with. She also was very kind in giving me over $100 in credits for my current bill. She assured me that everything would be taken care of by monday, and that I should check my AT&T app to confirm.
Fast forward to Monday. I check my AT&T app, nothing has changed. I then call AT&T again, talk to customer service again, no help again, get put on hold again, and then get passed to Loyalty again. This person tells me that she needs to contact the back office to have this pending order dropped. She then places me on hold. 10 minutes later, she comes back on to tell me it was dropped and that she just needed her screen to refresh. I then was disconnected from the call. That was 47 minutes later. I call back, connect with customer service, talk with this person who can't help, get placed on hold for Loyalty, connect with Loyalty, and then get disconnected AGAIN. I call a third time. Get connected with customer service, who can't help, get put on hold, and then get connected to Loyalty again. This person is finally able to get the back office to cancel this unauthorized order. As you can imagine, I'm thankful and incredibly irritated by now. He then goes on to discus my bundling options. I'm still pretty irritated by the whole situation, and as I'm explaining my frustration, he goes on to tell me how gratious AT&T has been with giving me the credits on my current bill for my trouble. Really. I end up having to drop HBO, but am able to keep my TV and internet speed the same for roughly what I was paying before my old bundle expired.
ALL I WANTED WAS THE ABILITY TO KEEP MY INTERNET & TV SERVICE THE SAME WITHOUT A HUGE PRICE HIKE! Never have I ever been treated like this at AT&T. I was very grateful to have the credits applied to my bill, but am still EXTREMELY irritated with my current experience. All I wanted was to have my current bill be as close to my previous bill with the same services I had before. Not a decrease. Not a credit. Didn't want something for nothing. Just the same old thing Ive had for the last 12 months. I love that new customers are given the world when they sign up, but here we are, good ol' loyal customer Joe Schmo, paying our bills on time and never complaining given the preverbial banana in the tail pipe.
I would love for someone who can actually help me to contact me immediatly in regards to this. Again, your customer service was absolutely abysmal.
