Remotes are generally considered consumer replacement item like the battery for a BBU (battery backup unit) if have VOIPon your acoount. When service is cancelled ATT asks for the return of RG, DVR, set top boxes and their power cords,fail to return will be billed BUT they do not ask your returnof remotes as these are yours, replacement of batteries in remote or dog chews on remote, or ?, you normally are responsible for replacement.

To order http://www.att.com/equipment/accessories/tv-remotes.jsp?source=ICEQEQ51600UVR02

Standard remotes are $20, RF $59.....or may spend your time calling and waiting for support who may send one free or may bill you as they should.

Many of these remotes had a manufacturing defect with respect to the volume control button, which may have shown up immediately or after months of use.  For me it showed up after a few months but went from annoying to unusable over the course of a couple of years.

 

If the subscriber abused the remote that's something else.  And of course, the subscriber is responsible for battery replacement.

Remotes have been sent to me at no charge, twice.  I used chat and I was sent one 2 day air.  You can also send a Private Message to the ATTU-verseCare Community Specialist team.  One of the specialists will respond to your PM shortly.  Please look for the flashing envelope at the top right of the page for your response from a team member.

 

They can fix you up.
