I am enrolled with AutoPay on my service plan. I had a phone bill payment due on 7/7/20 for $87 and I did not have sufficient funds in my account, though I received an email notifying me that my payment with auto pay was successful. The next day, 7/8/20 I added the correct funds to my account ($87), thinking the money would automatically be taken out. It is now 7/9/20 and my phone is still on, I have no amount due, but I have still not been charged for the bill. Why is this happening? Is my account going to be over drafted? Will my phone service be shut off? Am I going to suffer consequences for this? I have tried contacting ATT store and getting this sorted out but all anyone will tell me is that I have no amount due. I need this sorted out please and thank you.

This forum is not customer support. No one here has access to your account. It sounds to me your payment was processed. As far as ATT is concerned, you are paid. You need to contact your bank to see if there will be an overdraft charge.

Hi @boobears12,



Thank you for reaching out. We want to take a closer look into this for you.

We suspect that your account allowed us to charge you even though you had insufficient funds available. We believe that your service will continue uninterrupted till the expiry date and time for another renewal. This may be case of overdraft but we recommend you contact your financial institution for clarification about the charges.


Let us know if this helps.
