Young widow - account nightmare! Need help.


Young widow - account nightmare! Need help.

My husband died eleven months ago & I moved over a week ago, finally got my Uverse internet here & the account "owner" is my late husband - seriously - ya can't even make up stuff like this.

've tried - blown several HOURS now - to find a way to fix it - especially since every pg says, "Hello, Steve!"

Try to find some way to get help from AT&T - what a completely worthless website & app! I was thrilled when I discovered they had "Live chat," but apparently the fact I have both my U-verse and mobile accounts linked to my AT&T ID is somehow not enough to permit use of their "Live Chat."

I also need to delete his email address (the installer just added one while he was here - apparently didn't look at the page where it says "Account Owner" or bother to notice when he saw my late husband's name in the corner of every page as he worked through the screens on my tablet & phone. I didn't look at it until he was gone.

I'm a tech-savvy retired USAF F-16 specialist with a master degree; and I can't find a decent way to fix the problem. I just turned 41. I can only imagine how bad it must be for elderly people!
