Lies about Billing, tired of it

Lies about Billing, tired of it

I have been an at&t customer many years and I am getting tired of the lies since going to uverse. When I first signed up 2 years ago for uverse I did not get the monthly pricing I was supposed to and instead of the $250 reward card I had to settle for a $25 one. But I overlooked that, just happy to have uverse

Now my bill is so high compared to all att's competition, and even their own new customer uverse bundle prices, that I decided to call and get a better deal or cancel my services. After a little negotiating I was able to get my uverse tv, internet bundle down from $145 to $105 a month, or so I thought.

Now I see that my bill will only be going down $15 a month and $10 of that is from cancelling HD. Now I am supposedly locked into a year contract for services I was lied to about getting.

Is switching from uverse to someone else my only solution?

I dont think I will be happy with the price I negotiated, after they lied once again, even if they were to fix the price!

Re: Lies about Billing, tired of it

On April 4, 2014, I called at&t as my yearly promotional price of $19.95 for Uverse Elite was expiring on 4/16/14.  I wanted to downgrade to fast speed internet basic as the Uverse was too expensive.  Dwayne Henry said that I was on luck since he could offer me the Uverse Pro for $14.95 per month.  I told him that I didn't have a phone service just internet and that my wireless phone wasn't with at&t and that I wasn't going to change it.  Dwayne Henry said that it was my lucky day and he could offer me the Uverse Pro for $14.95 and I asked him for how long since if it was for 6 months or a year, I wanted to change to the fast internet basic and be done with it.  I told him that I have the equipment since I had fast speed internet from last year when I changed to uverse.  He said that my next bill would be $14.95 and every month forever.  I was happy about this and even told his supervisor when asked that Dwayne did a great job. My bill for April was a little over $21 and I asked the billing department and said that it was because it was prorated but my May bill would be $14.95.  This was a supervisor who told me this via chat. Today I look at my May bill and it is $39.78 and I called the billing office but it's closed so I chatted with Alan who said that my bill won't be $14.95 but $41 per month and that he doesn't know why Dwayne said that it would be $14.95 per month.  I'm so upset with all the lies.  I have been a customer of At&t for years and so have my family but it's amazing the lies that the representatives tell customers.  Is this how at&t does business??

Re: Lies about Billing, tired of it

Get out while you can or you will end up in my position. I have literally experienced every scenario that everyone on these forums have posted about, including yours. I had same "discount" but in exchange for saving a few bucks I had to give up my HD. Its ridiculous and they have me very upset over many many things and its unfortunate considering AT&T used to be different years ago.
