AT&T charged my card twice, but I can't convince customer support of the error

I'm having an immensly frustrating issue with my AT&T account. 

 

I've called Customer Service serveral times, jumped through several time-consuming hoops — and the problem still hasn't been resolved. 

 

I received a past-due text message on 11/11/2013 telling me my bill of $131.19 was past due. It gave me the option to pay via SMS by clicking "1," which I did. 

 

But I was charged twice for $131.19. 

 

I called Customer Service, and they told me to email in documation from my bank, which I did on 11/18/2013.

 

 

On 11/19/2013 at 10:08 a.m. I received a voicemail from a "Devon Whitley" — or something like that — saying "your payment issue has been resolved."

 

I immeditely started receiving past due notices after the duplicate charge was removed. I called Customer Service, and they said it only shows I paid once — and that they only gave me a credit "because I asked for it."

 

No refunds or credits have ever appeared. I assumed the issue would be taken care of during the next billing cycle, so I waited to pay my bill — but then my service was disconnected. I've since paid the bill, even though I am still owed $131.19 + a cutoff fee, which was erroneously charged. My repeated calls to Customer Service has not fixed anything. 

 

I have all the support documentation from by bank, but I cannot get the issue resolved with Customer Support, and I'm still out $131.19 + the cutoff fee. 

 

What do I have to do to get this fixed? I'm frustrated, really hate to swtich cell phone providers, but I'm really considering it after all the time, hassle and money I've devoted to proving an error on AT&T's part.
