My husband and I have been Direct TV customers since 2012. Prior to the AT&;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;T takeover, their customer service was great, if I had any billing issues they were always resolved to my satisfaction and with great customer service, they made me feel like a valued customer.
Fast forward to present day under AT&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;T control customer serviceis non existent. I recently had to use the payment arrangement option do to a death in my family I for the 1st time got behind on my November bill, it double with the December bill. I used the online make a payment arrangement option with 2 payments 1 of $131 due by 12/27/19 and the other of $131 due by 01/10/20. I made the 1st payment a bit earlier on 12/24/19.
Today is 01/07/20 and my service has been suspended and i have emails stating my account is in collections. I called their customer service and was told my service was suspended because my new bill for January 2020 was due 12/28/19. And that in order to restore service I would need to pay the full balance for both months. I explained that I understood a new bill generated in he middle of a payment arrangement, however I should have been informed that I would need to create an arrangement for the 12/28 bill.
At the time i created the arrangement that bill was not even in the system. The rep persisted in telling me that my JAN bill was due 12/28 and it is now Jan 7 and service was interrupted, that voided the arrangement. I advised the agent that this was not acceptable at all and opted to just disconnect the service altogether.. I was transferred to their customer loyalty department and was not given any help their at either, no options to help me a longtime customer at all.
I kept my end of the agreement and they did not.
This lady another I guess over seas agent said she was sorry I was canceling and preceeded to read me agreement that I have until 01/17/20 to return all receivers or there would be additional fees, absolutely no attempt at all to save a customer from leaving. I will say this I will never do business with this company again!!
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
DIRECTV Pros: Nfl ticket.
DIRECTV Cons: Not loyal to customers that migrated over to at&t from direct tv.
