I am an elderly gentleman whose flip phone finally gave out. I ordered a new one by telephone. I thought that all I would have to do would be to slip the new battery in, follow a few simple instruction, and it would be ready to go. What I got was a do-it-yourself kit full of instructions not appropriate for my age group and a whole box full of little gadgets to do this and that to the new phone. My eyes glazed over. I actually had a nosebleed. A young (65 y.o) friend looked it over and he too didn't understand any of it. So off we went to The AT&T Store on Washington Road in Evans, GA, where a nice young lady, Connie **, had it ready to roll in 10 minutes. What wonderful service from a small town AT&T store and Connie.

Wonderful company - I have had AT&T Prepaid for a couple weeks, going on month and the company has been great! The service is reliable, and the customer care team has been nothing short of amazing. I remember when I was activating my phone and I was short by a couple dollars, the rep who was awesome did a credit, helped me and had my service up and running with no issues. The plans are great, the website works like a charm. However, I do wish a mobile app was offered for the prepaid side, but that's okay. I will give this company a solid 10/10. I have never encountered issues with signal, customer care, or being dramatically congested and slowed down. Truly unlimited for $65.00 is a deal. That's for sure! I highly recommend AT&T Prepaid!!!!

Great service but living in a rural area the service is spotty in some areas, the towers need upgrading, otherwise it's a great phone company .. They treat you like a human and tell you what is wrong w your service.

I had issue with my husband's phone and called customer service feeling frustrated but was greeted with this wonderful young man named Torron! He had such great energy and positive attitude that it just made my day better! I think everyone at customer service could learn from Torron and he deserve stars or medals for putting great ratings for At&t. Torron thank you!

For us.. this is an anomaly. Normally we can go anywhere, work and stream but not in Amarillo. That being said I am really glad to be leaving Amarillo. We were having lots of issues with bandwidth and being able to work. So thinking we had something set up incorrectly we went to an AT&T Authorized Retailer who said we were being throttled so we took his advice and upgraded our plan on Friday. WRONG!!! We got speeds of 8 mbps at the store. We leave the store and go back to our RV and barely get over 1 mbps. Then we go to Palo Duro Canyon State Park and to our shock our tests show over the 100's mbps down to maybe mid 20's while we are in the heart of the canyon. The 2 good things about our time in Amarillo is that we only had to work one day and my husband's work phone is T-Mobile!!!! Very, very, very disappointed with AT&T!!! Ohh one other thing as we are leaving Amarillo our speeds have already tripled in speed. AT&T screwed the pooch in Amarillo.

If you put too much money onto your prepaid account they will just straight up take it if it isn't used up fast enough, because somehow the money "expires". What's worse, is that to extend that expiration date you have to add more money to the balance. Once the balance "expires", your money is forfeit. So, they punish you for prepaying your prepay account.

My wife and I have had this service for 2 years and we are stuck in a contract until we pay off the phones. The equipment cost is $50 a month- not unreasonable but the remainder of the bill, $200 more, is just robbery. We live in a desalt populated area and the service is spotty at best. I also have a home in another state where we get terrible service even though that was a prerequisite to getting this service. Disappointment after disappointment. I'm a senior and $250 a month for a fraction of what Verizon gave us is just dishonest and unfair.

I would leave zero stars for this company if I could... You wait hours at a branch to correct mistakes, for nothing... They make incessant mistakes then refuse to correct those mistakes, all at your expense.

Section 5: Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices***
On 10/3/22, I received a promotion from AT&T for home internet. I called them & spoke with Kayce. She informed me about a cell phone promotion. Not only would they provide better service but match the bill. The total price was 2 lines for $110+tax/month ($55 a line/month) & a $20/month credit due to us using our own devices, making the bill $90+tax/month total. I told her I purchased a new phone 3 weeks ago but had concerned my provider (Boost Mobile) would not be compatible with AT&T and feared it would lock. She said if it's PAID OFF it will work. After double checking in her system, Kayce was certain she could activate it. When she attempted to import my number, the call dropped, the phone locked, and I was left with no phone.
Kayce & the activation support team attempted to troubleshoot but was unsuccessful. I was told to go to multiple locations including my old provider which informed me that ATT owns my number now and wouldn't give it back them. I went back to ATT store location. They wanted me to buy a phone from them with no payment plan due to being a new customer policy probationary period. I explained to them I had just bought a Galaxy S21 weeks ago for around $800 new. They need to fix this. They told me there is nothing he can do and to call corporate. I told him That they advised me to go to multiple location, this being one of them. The next day I went into another location (5180 state Rte 100, PALM COAST, FL 32164). ** was my sales rep. He told me I was lied to by Kayce. However, he has a promotion to where I would receive a free phone if I turned in my old phone.
He explained that the "free phone trade promotion" will in essence be discounted by monthly bill credits that AT&T will give back on your bill for the 36-month installment plan. He would also honor $10 off monthly for my wife having her own phone all the mess but this would take 2-3 billing cycles to see the credits. He even told me "The phone doesn't even have to work, and they would take anything." I still turned in my galaxy s9. It was it good working order. The rep said it will be fine and I will start receiving the monthly credits in a couple months.
My bill quoted was $130+ tax as explained by **. My bill is $175. I have to complain for months only to be hung up on, put on hold, told it will be fixed and to give it a few more billing cycles, months go by and still no results. Almost 8 months later (4/23) they gave me $400 credit which is less than the agreement. By switching to AT&T I have raised my bill 200% and had to purchase 2 brand new phones, AND a S9 they had me trade in.
After calling today I spoke with a manager named Kevin who told me that the reason I didn't receive my $800 in credits is because my phone arrived one day late, and the promotion ended making me ineligible for the promo & they will credit me a total $17.50. I asked how did it arrive late? I did as they instructed and used their shipping & even dropped it off early. If I was ineligible for the promotion, how was I not inform when I dropped off the trade in phone? I also asked him why AT&T said they will rectify the problem every time I called? Kevin then hung up on me. In short, I'm Locked out of my phone, had my bill double, and was forced to buy another $800 phone without any care for the customer. You simply can't treat people like this.

Trying to resolve a billing issue that occurred do to fraud on the card that was on file for auto pay each month. My bank cancelled a card that was replaced. Due to the cancellation I was charge a late fee and and denied the auto pay discount. I replaced the billing card info and requested to resume autopay, however it was not processed and more late fees and no discount for the auto pay. I called to speak to an agent who told me it takes 4-6 weeks to process auto pay and that he could not refund any of the fees charged. With a policy like that I will be changing to a company that values loyal customers. Be advised that AT&T does not care and will not do what is right or fair to keep a customer
