Help...AT&T Doesn't have the Common Sense to Activate their Own Cell Service
I signed up for a new account: 4 BYOD lines and home internet.
The AT&T employee verified my ID in person and ran a credit check which came back as “very good to exceptional” (800+) When they got to the last step, they simply said, “I’m sorry your account wasn’t approved for activation. I have no further information to give you, goodbye” and hung up. This happened TWICE.
I don’t understand why their process is so broken and NOBODY can help. The customer service line was no help (5+ HOURS & 21 customer service reps [and counting] I’ve talked to on the phone). The in-store corporate store couldn’t help. “They just said, yeah, that happens a lot” and there's nothing we can do.
This is crazy!!!! We are a high-income family (>175K) with excellent credit (800+) and AT&T just says “sorry you’re not approved. Goodbye”
What am I missing?? How can nobody at AT&T have the ability to approve a simple phone line???
This never happened in 25 years at Verizon. There is always someone with a brain and common sense who is reachable to help if the first line of customer service doesn’t work.
Why would anyone choose AT&T if this is the "service" you get???
