Is there financing? Or can you bill the amount to your bill?

When I'm trying to preorder the 42mm , it's saying this device isn't compatible with your current rate plan or isn't available in my area? Help!

@Mdsmith96

 

what rate plan are you on....  The only rate plans that work with the iwatch are the 2 new unlimited plans and the mobile share advantage plan.

Why does it cost me to add Apple Watch Series 3 to my account?  Is it because it is believed someone could be talking on the Apple Watch over cellular, while, say, downloading an movie on the iPhone, on cellular?

 

 And, why can't I pay-as-you-go like an iPad?  Turn it on, turn it off, month-by-month.

How Do I Register a Complaint for Awful Customer Service?

Please let me share the rundown of what has transpired in the last 36 hours.

 

On Friday afternoon (9/15) I placed an order for an aluminum space gray 42mm Apple Watch Series 3 with a black sports band. I was charged the taxes (typical) that comes when you order on a Next plan ($24.72, which I confirmed does appear on my bank statement as a pending charge), and everything appeared to be in order with a promised ship date of 9/22.

 

At 11:44AM (EDT) today (9/16) I received an email that said that something had gone wrong with my order and that I needed to call a number to get my order "back on track". I called the number at around 4PM (EDT) and was informed that a "glitch" had occurred with the AT&T online system, so they needed to cancel my existing order and place a new one. I was assured when I asked that I would get the right watch and still expect to have it shipped on the originally promised date. We canceled the order. I was charged another $24.72. Everything seemed fine. Unfortunately, when I received the email confirmation of the order, the person that took it had (despite me confirming what I wanted verbally no less than 6 times) substituted an olive loop as the band rather than the black sports band. In addition, the promised ship date had moved back to 10/6.

 

Furious, I called back to the support number. I explained the situation, and was placed on hold for 30 minutes. No one ever came back to check on me, so I hung up.

 

More furious, I called back to the support number. I explained the situation again, was placed on hold, was transferred, was disconnected.

 

About to explode, I called back to the support number. I AGAIN explained the entire situation. After some minutes and apparent conversation with the person's supervisor, I was advised that all I could do was cancel the second order and place a third order, but that my order would go to the back of the line. Since I had no choice (didn't want the olive loop band and didn't want to pay $50 for the RIGHT band), I allowed them to cancel the order. Frustrated, I got off the phone. That was at 7PM (EDT)--3 hours after I had embarked on this keystone coplike odyssey of failure.

 

No longer wanting to leave the finalized order to chance (and the spotty English skills of the folks I had been dealing all afternoon/evening), I chose to place a third order online (and get charged $24.72 again). My current promised shipping date is now in November. November. I went from waiting a week to waiting two months. This is utterly inexcusable. AT&T should honor the original shipping date that was promised before THEIR litany of missteps. I am entirely displeased with this interaction and seriously considering leaving AT&T (and taking my yearly phone upgrades and close to $500/mo of business to a competitor).

 

I look forward to your response.

No it's not allowed on prepaid on any carrier.
