False charges- Worst service- Cust care uses no logic/commonsense
Edited by Phil-101 on Aug 23, 2013 at 8:13:23 PM

I have a account with ATT and the funny part is that I use a Nokia 6820 phone which was one of the starting phones. This is not a smart phone. Now funny part is that ATT network picks it up as Smartphone and as IPHONE?

 

ATT keeps charging me a dataplan and I have to call. Its now I am so tired of explaining them so many times and its just a headache. I also went to the ATT store and they did agree that its a system glicth and I should not be charged.

 

But still my bill keeps showing a dataplan charges. I am so tired of ATT . Totally not a happy customer.

 

Also my agent working on this case is KAY and everytime u call, it goes to voice mail. I have left 6 voicemail over a period of 2 weeks but no responses.  What a irresponsible employees? I cannot expect much more from ATT now?

I suspended my line with an iPhone on it and added a new line with new number. I was told that the old line everything had been removed. In fact I asked multiple times if the insurance and data plan were for sure removed because I've had to deal with this before. I get my bill and its outrageous. They didnt prorate anything and yep the suspended line still has the $30 data plan. So I email them today because I have a serious back injury and I am home bound and just talking on the phone makes me nauseous. They tell me that because the line had an iPhone on it I have to

Reactivate the line

Purchase a non-smart phone

Register it to the line and activate it

Make 1 call from it

Then AND ONLY THEN can the data plan be removed. I have pages of emails where I was like you cannot be serious, etc...so I guess I get to call them Monday and see if a manager can do anything. I mean this is beyond ridiculous. No one should have to pay for services they do not want and are not using. .

 If the line is suspended you cannot make any changes to it, suspended is not canceled, to make changes the line is required to be active.

Hi there! I hope that you're having a good day.. I think that I would be able to help you on this issue, with being charged for data on a Non-Smartphone, on a personal level. Your issue is really common and it's a complete misunderstanding.
 
Smiley Happy

When everyone had Basic/Quick Messaging Phones like yourself, we had plans call Pay-Per Use plans that charges $2 Per 1Mb for data. Usage wasn't fast or high with Non-Smartphones, so the rates wasn't that high at that time. 

These Pay-Per Use plans are automatically added to your features if there is no Data Plan or Messaging plan active, and they can be removed upon request.
(You cannot remove or add Pay-Per Use Data on a Smartphone, they require a data plan)

Dial (*#06#) and provide the Customer Service Representative (CSR) your IMEI to verify that you have your Nokia. From there own, after it's verified as a Non-Smartphone, ask for the Pay-Per Use feature to be removed and a Data Block for Non-Smartphones. The data block is free...You can also send a private message here to further assist you as well!

Goodluck!

confused, if the number you are talking about is the one your posted above (not a good idea to post this type of information). the tag line shows that it was sent from a iphone, no you are required to have a data plan

The number from which I am responding is not the number in question. I am using a different account to respond. Thats y it shows Iphone.

 

The number in case, is a NOT A SMART PHONE.

 

How difficult it can be for ATT to understand this simple statement. Its just ATT rep would keep going on and on ....

 

Common...is this that difficult to understand? You have to wait for 30 mins over the phone on helpline before someone picks it up...wow.... what a service

I wish I could help you here, but, I'm at home whenever I log into the Community Forums. (I enjoy helping others, even when I'm off).

Believing what you're saying is true, have you concidered visiting one of your local AT&T Stores? It's already been two days since your posted your problem; understanding that time is very valuble for you, I'd visit the store.

If that's a problem, I'm sure one of the Community Leaders would be more than happy to help you out!

Hello cheatersanddliars, thank you for your posts.

 

I'm sorry you're having issues with your phone and service. We can help you with that. Each phone has a unique IMEI number that tells our network the make and model of the phone. The network always recognizes the IMEI number if it's changed or the SIM card is moved from phone to phone, however your situation sounds like some kind of glitch. We'll be happy to look into this issue for you. Please send us a private message by clicking on "Private Message" link below and one of our managers will contact you within 2 business days to help. Please include your full name, phone number, make and model of the equipment, IMEI number (can be found under the battery) and the best time you can be reached. 

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks again,

Dmitriy.
