I am at my wits end. My life has been hell since falling prey to AT&T false and fraudulent promises…that is until you sign on the dotted line. I was told there was excellent coverage in my area so I switched carriers. Huge MISTAKE. I have now had 3 different microcells and all 5 of our phones freeze up after a 2 min. conversation.
What is worse is because the freeze up the call is not dropped the minutes keep adding up and you cannot end the calls. Sometimes the only way to end a call is to remove the battery allow phone to cool down ( all 5 phones different operating systems Android and windows and different manufacturers) and restart. When the phone freezes up it shows full signal strength and that it is connected to the microcell.
At first it was just voice , but now we are having as many issues with data and text. I have been on the phone with AT&T over 100 times only to be continually told “based on your minutes we show that you are using your phone successfully” No idiots based on the fact that we can not hang up our phones when the other end goes dead, it continues to rack up minutes. I have gone from using less then 600 min shared for 5 family phones to over 1500 before the end of the billing period.
I have told them to look at the actual numbers called and they will see a continued pattern of recall to the same number over and over again. And then finally they will see that a land based phone has to be used to contact a family member on the plan. So now I have 5 phones that dont work, I have had to have a land based phone installed which now goes against our minutes as it is no longer cell to cell! Its a nighmare. The only thing I have continually told them is that whenever we have a visitor to our house with a IPhone they never experience the nightmare we have.
I have asked AT&T to send us a refurbished IPHONE and lets see what happens but they refuse. They now say we cant guarantee service in your area, even though we were told it was excellent and based on their own web site our address shows good coverage. I have talked to the managers, manager manager and so on and so on only to be spit out the same lies and deceit.
I have also been told that I am the only person on the earth that is having this issue even thought there are countless other horror stories on the internet of the same issue with AT&T and specifically Samsung phones having this issue. My only recourse at this point is to file a Notice of Dispute and take them to Arbitration. I will be seeking relief for the costs of all phones, mental anguish, loss of business and withdrawal from the contract.
Never ever again will I sign a contract with a mobile carrier. They lie and will tell you anything to get your signature on their contract. Shame on you AT&T and shame on your customer service, tech support and Presidents office ( which is just a hyped up name for some idiot behind a desk who spits out a written response.)
