No consistency in AT&T policies (website versus support staff vs local stores) regarding equipment exchanges
I have experienced so many problems with AT&T and I continue to receive inconsistent responses. I ordered an upgrade to an iphone (via online video chat). The AT&T rep. ordered the incorrect memory and as soon as I saw the receipt come over my email, I called them back. They told me they could not cancel the order once it had been placed and I had to wait for the new phone to arrive and then take it to any AT&T store. The local store told me I had to take it to a "corporate AT&T store" for an exchange. An online rep told me the same. However, after driving to a corporate store, they informed me that I had to call AT&T and get a return label and sent it back via mail. The AT&T website says, "take it to any store". I proceeded to request a label and then took it to the USPS (per the instructions) and also got a tracking number (as instructed by the AT&T rep). USPS tracked the package for a total of one day until it was delivered to a "Return Agent". No further tracking from the USPS can occur and I have no idea on how to track it to know if or when it will be received by AT&T for restocking. So, I'm stuck with my outdated phone, prepaid taxes on an upgrade, and I'm guessing I'm going to be paying for a new phone that I do not have, never activated, and never unsealed the box. What do you do?
