We know that Hurricane Irma has left many of you and your families without power and dealing with a very stressful situation. To try and ease some of the stress, we’re automatically issuing credits and waiving additional fees to give unlimited data, talk and texts to AT&T wireless customers. In addition, we're also providing unlimited talk and texts to AT&T PREPAID customers beginning Sept. 8 across all of Florida. If you live in Georgia, as of Sept. 12, we are also providing unlimited data, talk, and text in impacted Georgia counties and continuing through Sept. 17 for all impacted customers. We are also extending payment dates for impacted AT&T PREPAID customers with voice and text service through Sept. 17
Customers in these areas may still receive data alert notifications during these protected dates, but billing will reflect the correct data charges.
In addition, from Sept. 6 through Sept. 15 we’re automatically issuing credits and waiving additional fees to give unlimited data, talk and texts to AT&T wireless customers and unlimited talk and texts to AT&T PREPAID customers in Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Impacted video and home internet customers can visit our support page for information or to report service outages.
Additional information on what we are doing to help those impacted by Hurricane Irma can be found at: Hurricane Irma Response & Live Updates
AT&T encourages customers to consider the following recommendations in the wake of the storm:

dont get me wrong i appreciate the fact that you have given extra time and data to hurricane effected customers, but the real problem here is that some customers need more help that just 7 days of extra data. Some of the people with Harvey have been out of work for weeks and are going to need help paying bills and it is going to be food or bills or a place to live, there is no choice there and then they have no phone so cannot get intouch with employers to find out when they can actually go back to work. My daughter in Texas her and her husband have been out of work for the past 3 weeks, with 5 girls and no money coming in, thus i just paid her phone bill for her so she can keep service, now I am in the middle of Florida waiting for this lovely lady Irma to hit us, could not afford to evacuate lol came here to escape Harvey, lol and now having paid both my bill and her's would really have been a big help if there would have been someway that this month's bill could have been spread out over maybe the next two months to give people a chance to breath with out worrying about phone bill when you are not even sure you are going to have a home to live in. Do want to thank you however for keeping service up and running. Sorry just a little frustrated and needed to vent

Any idea when we will have service back in the Tampa Area. I am in a Special Needs Shelter in Clearwater, FL and have been without service all day. I have the Home wireless internet and homephone 50 Gig Service. I get DirectVnow when I login using the internet at the school, but have no phone service or internet.

It is extremely frustrating when ALL of my services depend on ATT Uverse. FPL restored my power within 12 hours of the storm but I am completely without internet, TV and home phone and no one at ATT has any clue when service might be restored. I contacted tech support and was routed to an agent somewhere outside the United States. I explained that I was in South Florida and that we had just experienced a category 3 hurricane. She checked the line and told me "I'm not showing an ATT outage. Do you know if there may have been any activity in your area that may have interrupted your service, like maybe digging or something?" HELLLLO! WE JUST WENT THROUGH A CAT 3 HURRICANE! MAYBE THAT COULD BE IT?? That is extremely frustrating! Maybe during extreme situations like this, ATT could route the calls to people that actually get CNN and The Weather Channel.
