For a number of years I lived at 2818 Eaglerock Circle, Missouri City, Texas 77489. At this residence I had telephone, internet and e-mail services through ATT. Through this arrangement, I established an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In October 2008, I moved to a new residence: 3815 Pleasant Valley Drive, Missouri City, Texas 77459. I was pleased that I did not have to change my phone number and could get ATT internet, e-mail, and U-Verse services at my new location. I specifically requested the same service that I currently had with the addition of UVerse. On the phone, a friendly and seemingly well-informed ATT representative assured me that she could set up the move for me.
My disillusionment with ATT was apparent, when in September 2012, I neglected to pay the phone bill. I was horrified when my e-mail was terminated. I use this e-mail address in my work to maintain contacts with associates. When I called to request reinstallment of the service and to pay the bill, I was asked if my internet service was currently available. When I responded that I could still go online, I found out that I had been paying twice for the same internet service. Although I had been paying the phone bill and U-VERSE separately, I never thought that a company that I trusted would charge me twice for the same service.
I am putting this in writing because I find it almost impossible to speak to a person via telephone. My unfortunate incident in September cost me a days work as I stayed at home, talking to at least ten different departments and individuals. I am having extreme difficulty in finding an address or phone number where I can voice this concern. The result, I had to pay the phone bill twice. Once with the online service that I usually pay with, and again over the phone with the ATT representative. I was told that this was the only way I could get e-mail reinstated.
I am really shocked that this has happened to me. You may attribute it to stupidity on my part, but I attribute it to a ATT representative that failed to provide me with the services that I requested.
I would hate to leave ATT. I have been a loyal customer for years. My question is what can be done to rectify this situation. If nothing is done, I will have no other choice but to leave ATT and find a company that will not charge me twice for the same service.
I know that it is difficult for Managers, executives, directors to provide solutions to every person’s problems, but I think this is one that demands someone’s attention.
I hope to hear from someone soon!
