Already paid bill but phone not reinstated

Yesterday I paid my overdue balance in an AT&T store, by electronic check. As of now, the phone is still not reinstated. How do I get it turned back on?

Re: Already paid bill but phone not reinstated

Typically, service is restored within a few moments of the payment posting to the account. There may be some delay in the payment posting due to the use of an electronic check. This tends to be a bit slower than a debit or credit card on the bank's end.

Re: Already paid bill but phone not reinstated

what if i currently owe a certain balance and if i pay just the past due amount, is that enough to get my account off of suspension?

Usually catching up the past due balance is good enough but it also depends on account history too.

Electronic checks seem to take a little longer.
