prepaid Service not working


prepaid Service not working

Hi.  I'm new.  I just signed up for a prepaid plan.  When I signed up (7-28-14) I set my account to be autopay and charged my debit card.  It would not let me start my service that day, but said it would start today (8-1-14).  I've checked my account balance and my $25.00 has been added, but I still cannot use my phone.  I've tried to call you, the 611 number, and a different phone to try to use it, but I keep getting a message that says "emergency calls only".  Why is my service not working?  I've waited almost a week to be able to use my phone and my payment was accepted.

Re: prepaid Service not working

Thank you for getting back to me!  It turns out that my service DID activate when it should have, I was just not in the right area for my phone to oick up on the service from AT&T.  It worked as soon as I got into an area with AT&T service.

AT&T GoPhone is changing its name to AT&T PREPAID. New name - same great service, network and value!
