Prepaid accounts go on a 30 day cycle so the service end date changes each month. It does not stay on the same day each month. There is no grace period on prepaid. Prepaid means you pay in advance.

Try a cheaper plan you can afford to refill every 30 days. Cricket, straight talk, Consumer cellular, H2O are all At&t MVNO That cost less. Locked At&t phones work on all.

We cant’t allow anything, we are all customers like you. Prepaid just doesn’t work that way, there are no extensions. As noted, prepaid plans are 30 days so the refill date changes in any month that does not have exactly 30 days. You pay for 30 days of service, you get 30 days of service. There are no extensions but there are no late fees either. You just don’t get service until you pay for it. Next pay day, put enough on your account to pay for two months. That should allow you to catch up so that you will have enough when needed. Just make sure you either refill or set aside enough to refill every pay day.

I can afford this plan!! You should allow the expiration date when the
client asks for it.
This is a customer populated forum, we aren’t in charge of how At&t does business. Carriers apply the same rules for everyone. The one applied by all to prepaid is really simple - you pay before service will work.
If you are living paycheck to paycheck, and can’t afford to refill every 30 days, then you cannot afford the plan. It’s the definition of ‘can’t afford the plan’.

And I have repeatedly asked to have my experation be on the 3rd of each month with no response or effort to accommodate me.
🤦♀️ Not possible. The plan must be refilled every 30 days. Since January, February, March, May, July, August, October and December do not have 30 days, your refill date will shift.
If you want the same date each month, you need to switch to postpaid service.

@Alexismy1 You still aren’t getting it. You can’t keep your expiration date on the same day without losing service. As has already been explained, prepaid plans are 30 days. The expiration date is going to change in any month that does not have exactly 30 days. It is simply not possible to accommodate you.

How would you feel if your boss repeatedly told you “Your paycheck will be late this month”?
Some places may choose to offer a grace period, but you are not entitled to one. If you don’t pay, you don’t get the service.
