GetHuman-plympto: extremley unhappy
GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/21/17?
GetHuman-plympto: As far as I'm concerned ATT gets no stars. I have been a cellular customer for over ** years, but that is going to end. We added people to our family plan because we were encouraged to by a salesman. We were told everyone would get a free Phone. Then I was told I couldn't because my Contract wasn't up. after ** years. I waited for over a year. Then when it was time to get my phone I checked the web site to see what was free. There were several listed as "free up grades" I then went to Apple and asked them what was free. They checked and said yes I was entitled to a free upgrade. The only one through them was the iphone *c. I got the iphone *c.. I have been charged $** a month for my "free phone upgrade". This month I was charged $** for my "free phone upgrade". There was no explanation for the increase. This is how you treat loyal customers? I am from the generation that picks a company and is loyal to them. To bad ATT does not feel the same. From the look of these ratings I am not alone. I am still stuck in a "contract" but I will leave as soon as I can. If you treated your customers better you wouldn't have to tie them up in a contact that grows every time it is necessary to contact customer non-service. I know I will never find out why my "free phone" costs so much but others will be able to read about the uncaring way you treat your customers.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting AT&T. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a AT&T problem?
GetHuman-plympto: I'd give them a one out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
GetHuman-plympto: I'd give them a one out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about AT&T's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
GetHuman-plympto: For that I would say three out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other AT&T customers?
GetHuman-plympto: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for AT&T to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from GetHuman-plympto taken from his AT&T customer service problem that occurred on November 21st, 2017.
