I was forced to write AT&T High Management because my unlocking issue was not resolved at the call center level, and because I cannot call or email you for satisfaction. Frankly, I was surprised that a company with the longevity that AT&T has in the phone business still operates in the dark ages, forcing me to write them a letter to attempt to get an issue resolved.

History of complaint: 1. I received a letter stating that AT&T was increasing the price of my grandfathered unlimited data plan in March. 2. I elected to cancel my plan with AT&T after 9+ years. The AT&T letter that I received had said that if I choose to cancel my unlimited plan while I am under the two year service contract, then AT&T would waive my early termination fee! 3. On March 9th I enacted my option to cancel. I switched to T-Mobile. 4. Due to a misunderstanding, T-Mobile activated the phone number before I cancelled my AT&T account, resulting in the number being locked by AT&T on my phone! 5. Upon attempting to resolve the locked number issue, AT&T call center refused to accept the AT&T letter waiving my early termination fee. This happened despite the letter saying it was available to do so in March and the increased price in affect! 6. AT&T call center said that they could not waive it until a new bill was printed. I responded ‘then print the new bill’ to which they said would not be until next month! My phone was to be locked for the next month- it is still currently locked as of March 29th! 7. To add insult to injury, the very next day (March 10th) my new cellphone bill came via email to my inbox- why could not AT&T add this unexplained expense when the bill was not yet written! 8. Now, after attempting to get my phone unlocked again (March 29th), I still have my phone locked for a month and the call center says that I owe $105.00 to get it reopened, despite your letter waiving the fee.

Your Action: 1. This is unacceptable. I don’t know if AT&T is taking advantage of me (1) because I am a senior citizen, (2) because I am cancelling their service, or (3) if there is just negligence all the way up to high management. 2. I am not satisfied. To receive satisfaction I need AT&T to a. Unlock my phone NOW b. Have the so-called early termination fee waived. Everyone needs know how AT&T swindles senior citizens- locking their phones so they cannot be used for a month and charging them after you tell them the early termination fee will be waved. Fix this! Sincerely, Swindled Senior
