If you are cancelling UVerse because of an unresolved complaint, let us help you file a claim.
Maybe you want to cancel a few of your AT&T services, or maybe you want to switch companies. No matter the reason, we explain how to cancel your account with AT&T UVerse.
Once you are talking to a representative, they will explain the steps based on your account. If you have to return any equipment, they will give you a document for shipping concerns. If AT&T owes you money, you will get your refund within 60 days, but if you owe AT&T then you will be charged immediately.
Note: If you call outside of regular business hours, then your request won’t go through until the next business day.
There are multiple alternatives to cancellation.
Note: Only the account owner is allowed to cancel any AT&T UVerse service.
AT&T UVerse often provides promotions under which you can sign up for services. However, many of these come with the added string of requiring a contract. So, if you decide to cancel before the contract is complete, then you will face early termination penalties from AT&T.
If you sign up with AT&T UVerse and decide to cancel within 14 days of activating your new account, then you can avoid the early termination fees. You can review your AT&T UVerse service agreement which sets out all terms and conditions for the services you have, including early termination fees.
Moreover, you will be required to send back AT&T UVerse equipment. If you do not send it back on time (within 21 days), then you will be charged for it. You can bring your account number and a cancellation letter with you to return your equipment at a local UPS Store or FedEx® Office.
As mentioned, the two biggest areas for fees are:
The early termination fee can be $325 or $150 and the failure to return equipment is based on your services.
AT&T has had almost 60,000 complaints filed against them in the last three years, 14,000 of which have to do with billing problems. Customers who have tried to cancel their service have complained about things like:
However, out of all of these, the biggest issue is the early termination fee. There are many customers who do not realize that they signed up with AT&T UVerse as part of a promotion that had a contract. Other people just don’t expect an early termination fee at all because it was not made clear to them when they signed up for AT&T UVerse.
