Resolving ATT Billing Problems

For the past 6 months I have been billed for each long distance call individually. I have the "unlimited" long distance plan. Each month I'm told it will be fixed, result of a "computer glitch", etc. I'm past frustrated.


Does any other Thriftyfun person have this constant problem? Again I have to get past the automated part to speak to another customer service representative, who "guarantees" this will be fixed. I have spoken to supervisors also. I am filing a complaint with the FCC.

I don't know if you're familiar with Clark Howard. He has TV a show that comes on here in TX on Saturdays around noon I think. He's written financial books, etc. and he's on the radio. People call him with all sorts of problems and I bet it has a solution for you. His phone number is listed on his website. Go to and you'll find his number. I have unlimited long distance calling and I've never had a problem so that doesn't make any sense to me. Call or e-mail if you can Clark Howard. You'd be suprised at the questions people ask him and has very good advice.

Contact the Beter Business Bureau. I had a billing problem with AT&T for my cell phone bill. They wanted to charge me over $100 for data usage that we didn't use! The customer service representative and the lady who identified herself as the manager both argued with me. In fact the manager seemed to think she could read minds because she insisted that my husband *intended* to use the internet on his phone. I contacted the BBB via their web site They took the charge off my phone bill and only charged me one cancellation fee when I switched to T-Mobile.

My problem dealt with ATT, but isn't quite your problem. It took me over a year, and a lawyer, to settle my problem with ATT though, and it wasn't even my problem.

When I first moved here twelve years ago, fresh from my parent's home, and started my phone service, it was with Sprint. I had local and long distance. Shortly after, I began receiving bills from ATT, much like yours, but I refused to pay them as they were not mine; it was my number, but not my address and name!

Every time I called I spent a good hour, part of that trying to talk to a human, and then each time, each representative seemed to see the light, promised help, assured me, and each supervisor promised something even greater, but each month I would get an even higher bill and things started adding up and despite not being in my name, I was soon threatened with legal actions, threatened with harm, threatened all manner of things. When they threatened to end my phone service I had to get Sprint involved, and they assured me that could not happen.

It took a legal action and several weeks after that, to stop the bills. Stop the harassment, stop the stress. I really feel for you because I know it is not easy dealing with them.

Thank you all for your help and sharing similar frustrating situations. I had to call them again yesterday to adjust Feb.bill. After 6mins.of automated crap and 20mins.with a human we reached a decent figure! I'm told it's a computer glitch,the previous Rep. Didn't log the problem,blah blah blah. She finally asked if I'd like to speak w/a Supervisor which I rattled off the 3 Supervisors names and 5 previous silence. #4 told me she didn't appreciate my tone of voice! Her, I hung up on before I said something obscene. Anyway I have the FCC form ready to mail and will call the BBB today. Bring back truthful Customer Service and do away with automated phone response. Thank y'all again.

I think they count on people not checking, we had that company and if we went into the local store boy after waiting an hour or so, we would come out with free upgrades and of course refund and added benefits. I told my friend how I dreaded getting the bill, as it usually meant going down to the store and she said she never looked at it just

paid it. Hope you got your problem fixed.
