Something positive about AT&T Wireless

I checked my current cell phone usage yesterday after an extraordinarily high bill for last month posted. In August, I used up all my rollover minutes due to a long conference call. Last month, we went over again, so I incurred billed minutes (45 cents/minute - Yikes!).

I realized that I need to increase the number of minutes/month in our current plan, as we have already gone over again this billing cycle, which closes in 7 days. AT&T will actually allow you to make changes and activate them from the beginning of the current billing cycle.

It doesn't help me for the outrageous bill from last month, but I won't have to pay extra for this current cycle. I've never seen a company allow you to retroactively do this and thought it was pretty cool.

I have no problem with AT&T and sometimes get weary of the knee-jerk bashing that goes on. Every cell phone company has horror stories, it's simply a case of choosing your poison.

Right, I think ATT's poison is healthier than other companies'. Not great, but for me, has been better than the rest - since I left Verizon, I have saved a lot of $$.

When our employees ask me why we settled on AT&T as our provider nationwide I tell them it is because AT&T sucks the least in the most places.

T-Mobile allows you to do this, too. They will even send you a text saying that you are getting low on minutes, and then you can call in and change your plan for the month, before you get hosed.

I switched my daughter from unlimited to 1000 minutes a couple of months ago, but I was worried about her going over. That is when they told me about this feature.

Yesh.. Verizon is the only one sticking with the 'gotcha !' pricing model. But AT&T and TMobile's coverage sucks rocks in NE Ohio. So I'm stuck.

So far, we have only discussed about the big 3 cell phone/high speed internet providers. What about the smaller companies?



SoCal for now.

VerizonWireless has allowed backdating when going to a higher minute plan for at least 2 years now. And to allow a change in plan without requiring an extension of your contracts. And Verizon was among the first cell phone companies to lower termination fees every month that you kept your service.
