If you are referring to AT&T salespersons in Target stores, they are not AT&T employees but resellers of AT&T services, and are independently owned and operated, not by AT&T.  AT&T will only honor services and promos offered on their official website. A reseller will promise just about anything to make a sale. And if it's not what you expected or were told, then unfortunately you need to take it up with them, not AT&T. If it sounds too good to be true.......

Your totally right in what you just said but att does let other sellers sell their products they grab you with a bunch of lies and promises they can't keep att knowing that they sell their service. Personal experience rep inside of target  told me 4 lines for 110 dlls and 2 free phones s21 ultras and 2 other phones for my trade inns guess what I got 1 s21 ultra and had to pay for for the other one that's 2 phones s21s the other 2 phones I never got had to pay out of my pocket to get phones that I needed so I lost my 2 good notes 9 and 10 payed off still with warranty in perfect conditions and then on top of that had to buy another 2 phones great service they provide regardless who sells you the phone att is still the name on the brand and who you pay your bill to my bill is now 200 dlls being that I had been a cricket customer for 5 yrs same service just to change and get new phones I shot my self in the foot. From paying 100 dlls to paying 200.if anyone is having trouble with these people let me know I have their hot line number wich you can't get anywhere online because it's not provided

The published offers are on A T & T 's website. That information is accurate. I always advise people to go to the sales page and read the deals.

If an individual misrepresents what is published on AT&T website they should individually be held responsible.

Currently going through this issue. Was lied to about the promotion, trade-in credits, and the discounts, and now paying way more than when I had T-Mobile. I’m calling AT&T Target Tower monthly and they straight out said they can’t help as I have no proof to what I was told even though I took pictures of the sales rep calculations but since it doesn’t say what plans and name of discounts that is not feasible. Supervisor raised her voice and yelled too.

@chale   details? 

When did you switch?  How many phones?  What plan? Trade ins? 

What were you told?  What's on the paperwork?

Have you now read what At&t website says for plans and price?

What's different?

Have you read all the promotional details and understand how they work?

I was just harassed aggressively yesterday at Target by 2 people in AT&T shirts trying hard to get me to switch from Tmobile to AT&T when the female told me she can get me 5 lines 5 new phones for $120 for the first 36 months I said that will never happen then the bill will go up to like $500 lol. I didn't fall for the okie doke I said I'm good with my $200 bill from Tmobile and that years ago I had a bad experience with AT&T. I feel bad for anyone who was scammed into them wonderful imaginary numbers, lesson learned do not talk to them people in Target Walmart etc keep walking!!!

Target, Walmart, Sam's Club, Best Buy, etc are all AT&T Retail Stores. There are also brick and mortar Retail Stores. All are independently owned and operated separate from AT&T and are not staffed by AT&T employees. Some will say and promise just about anything to make a sale. AT&T will only honor deals and promos that are listed on their website. It's unfortunate that AT&T doesn't have more control over these stores but no one knows what the contracts stipulate or for how long. It really is a shame because they are just giving AT&T a worse name than they already have.

@Kddubb94 

I was just harassed aggressively yesterday at Target by 2 people in AT&T shirts

Just say no and walk away

trying hard to get me to switch from Tmobile to AT&T when the female told me she can get me 5 lines 5 new phones for $120

Not true.  And they should not misrepresent prices.  5 lines on starter is $30 each before taxes, that's $150, plus about $5 in taxes.  

for the first 36 months I said that will never happen then the bill will go up to like $500 lol.

Um, half right.  It's more like $175.  Unless you change plans it stays at $175.   If you buy phones, with a deal like you will have to do to get the current price of $175, you'll still pay $175.  Without a deal, you pay retail, just like you do at T-Mobile.

I didn't fall for the okie doke I said I'm good with my $200 bill from Tmobile

$200?  You getting ripped off honey.  My Verizon bill with unlimited data on 5phones and a tablet is $197 (even after the price increase).  With the visa card, I typically get about $30 credits off the bill.  

 and that years ago I had a bad experience with AT&T.

Okay...I'll grant this one.  Numbersync doesn't work well, CS is manure, combined billing is risky.  

I feel bad for anyone who was scammed into them wonderful imaginary numbers, lesson learned do not talk to them people in Target Walmart etc keep walking!!!

$120 was imaginary.  But the published prices are not.
