So I walk in to an ATT store and inquire about upgrading. Joel, the sales person provides me with options. So far so good. But then I realize that with the new Mobile share plan my monthly bill would increase. Particular concern with having to pay $50 for 2gb of data when in pay $25.00. OUTRAGEOUS.

Anyhow, as I express my concern Joel pulls a fast one on me. He goes on to explain that I should consider the change regardless bc ATT would force all customers to go into these plans as of March. Turns out that a call to your customer support number contradicts Joel's statement. If chose to keep my plan I may do so. But Joel pushed this on me to get me to accept the upgrade...that is just UNETHICAL.

When I finished my call with customer support, I emailed Joel (****) to confirm the information he provided. After several forwards of the same email, he has not replied back. Obviously, he is avoiding my email. So I wonder why ATT issues emails to their sales people if they are not going to respond??? Joel should have manned up and he should have simply apologized for the inaccurate information. Yet here I am waiting for a response from him.

His behavior should not be tolerated. What he did was misleading and I think that is not ATTs style. I have been a customer for years and I feel this is not acceptable from a company I have trusted for so many years.

I just want to point out that the $50 is not just for 2GB of data (it is actually $55), that also covers unlimited minutes and texting. To accurately compare, you must also factor in what you are paying for minutes and texting, not just the $25 for data.

Re: Unethical

Thx for your comment.. The way I see it, I get charged $55 for 2gb of data and then I pay $40 to access the line. In my view , the unlimited text and minute is factored in the $40. I strongly believe that ATT knows that people use less minutes and text messaging. Anywho. Thx for sharing ur thoughts on the matter.
