Hello @Lilone, we'd be happy to help. If you are unable to pay the full balance on your account. We recommend seeing if you're eligible for a payment arrangement. Follow the link provided for more information. Also check out this article on switching from monthly postpaid to AT&T prepaid, if you are considering changing your account type. Thanks for reaching out to us.

Make sure you meet the requirements listed below before attempting to switch to prepaid:

  • Your existing postpaid service must be active for at least 30 days.
  • Your account can't be past due.
  • Combined bill accounts can't be changed from postpaid to AT&T PREPAID.
  • Your postpaid service can't be affiliated with a business account.
  • You can't migrate during the two days before, or the four days after your billing cycle. This is the time when your usage is being determined.
  • You can't have a tax-exempt status.

Once you have confirmed that you meet all of the necessary requirements. We recommend browsing through our prepaid plans to select the one that best fits your needs. Let us know when you're ready to make the switch. Thank you.

Hi, @Lilone,

 

To answer questions about your bill, we would need to talk to you over the phone. With your service suspended, we wouldn't be able to call you, though you should still be able to call us at 611 or 800.331.0500. As you're being told service can not be resumed until the full amount is paid, we wouldn't be able to restore it, but we should be able to tell you what happened.

You can contact AT&T by dialing 8003310500, or you can chat with a representative to know details about your bill and get to know how that $800 came up- Hope you to find a satisfactory solution!
