Billing Issue - No refund

Billing Issue - No refund

We canceled our ATT Wireless Service on July 9, 2018.   We paid our June 30 bill, which was billed in advance for the period July 1 through July 31, on July 6.  Since the service was billed in advance, and we paid for the whole month, we should be entitled to a pro-rata refund based on the cancellation date.   I called ATT and after being bounced around and place on hold for over 20 minutes total, I was told there would be no refund - the rep tried to claim the payment was for Jun 1 to Jun 30 - when I told him repeatedly that this is NOT what the paper bill dated June 30, 2018 said - that it clearly showed our July 6 payment would be for July 1 through July 31 - he had no answer.   Does ATT have no place to file a written complaint about a bill????

AT&T doesn't prorate the final bill; no major provider does. You definitely paid for service for July 1 to July 31; the rep was wrong about the dates, but was correct in stating you aren't due a refund.

Re: Billing Issue - No refund

We usually tell people to port at the end of their bill cycle because no carrier prorates.  Billing is stated as month to month only.

Re: Billing Issue - No refund

Someone use my card to make payments and att said they cancel the payment and I should receive my money back in 24 hours and I haven’t receive it. How long do it take to receive the money back into my account

Re: Billing Issue - No refund

The exact thing happened to us, how do we get our money back because oh yes we are due a refund.  For us it is for an entire month.  We cancelled before the cycle even began.  The rep told us the exact same thing.  AT&T basically just stole our money.  Who do we complain to???

1. How did you cancel?

2.  What does the final bill show?  Devices?  Activity?
