Check Your Monthly Bill, Regularly 

According to the Better Business Bureau, over the last three years AT&T Wireless has had 57,787 complaints filed against them of which 14,292 related to billing issues. At FairShake, we have handled a series of complaints about AT&T billing problems like:

  • Being charged for the same bill twice
  • Being charged after a service was canceled
  • Being promised discounts for first responders but then not receiving the discounts on the monthly bill
  • Being offered a trade in deal, but then receiving a higher than expected bill
  • Adding new lines for an agreed upon amount, then receiving a bill for much more than agreed upon.

That said, it’s important that you always check your monthly bill. When you get your bill verify that every line item on your bill is what you agreed upon and the amount you agreed upon.

You might have charges on your monthly bill because you signed up for an AT&T Wireless service at a promotional rate which came with a contract but the fine print has doubled your bill midway through that contract.

If you are struggling to pay your bill from AT&T Wireless, even small errors can make all the difference. Don’t be afraid to reach out to customer service if there’s something you don’t understand or a charge that doesn’t make sense to you. It’s always better to try and negotiate and reduce your services rather than cancel out right if you have an AT&T cancellation fee associated with your account. 

Negotiate with AT&T Wireless 

Call AT&T on their Main Customer Service line at (800) 288-2020 or through their online customer service here.

They might be able to offer you something like a lower price on the monthly package you have, additional lines free of charge, or better speed. It never hurts to ask.

Reduce Your Services
