    So, ATT wants to charge $4.95 a month for a service that Verizon and Sprint give away with ALL packages? I think I just answered my own question... time to leave ATT. Thanks for nothing after many years of sub-par service.

    DB:2.74:Smart Limits For Blocking Calls - A $4.95 Fee?! 3f


    Actually you'd be looking at $4.99/month for Smart Limits and it provides you with several features beyond just blocking a number. Detailed information on it can be found here.

    Also, several newer phones have this capability built into them so that you do not have to pay for smart limits. I suggest looking up your phone in device how to and determining if your model offers a free blocking option.

    822 does not charge wirelessly without charging back, 920 does. 822 is 4.3", 920 is 4.5" screen. 920 has sharper screen and better front camera.

    According to Verizon sales rep who said they had been to training for this phone stated that you could control childrens media usage with Kids corner. After setting up 3 of these I find out that kids corner is for setting limits for children using your phone, you still have to pay for Verizon controls to control media.

    ATT has 920 for $99 and you get the charging plate for free.

    DB:2.67:Compare With Nokia 920 (Att) Before Buying 822 (Verizon) zs


    Ah, but you can get the 822 for 99 cents Friday at Wirefly, if you have an upgrade available, or if you're getting a new account, and if you have a corporate discount, you can get the charging back and plate at a discount, and I think the total is around $68. The 920 does have a better front camera, indeed, and for that I want it to be on Verizon. But if that's not as important to you (and indeed the 822's camera is a pretty good one - not the best, but pretty good), the 822's screen has blacker blacks and brighter colors, and can be seen in the sunlight better. And while the 920 has 32GB and the 822 has 16, the 920 cannot be expanded, and the 822 can have a 64 GB card inserted.

    So, depending on what your individual needs are, each phone definitely has its pros and cons, and each one is definitely a strong player.

    DB:2.65:Recent Issues With Battery/Charging js


    Hi All,

    A few weeks ago I updated my OS to the new 3.0. Earlier this week, ATT had a network issue in my area and the data network was unavailable. Overnight, my battery ran out of juice and shut down. Since that time, I have been unable to fully charge my phone. It gets to about 75 or 80% charge and will not charge further. When unplugged, that 80% charge only lasts about 3 hours of standby--and about 30 minute of use.
    I have rebooted my iphone, turned off wifi, location services, turned off push email all in attempts to save battery life. I have even set it to airplane mode (this is the only thing that allows standby to be about 7 hours of life).

    Does anyone have any suggestions? My planned next step is to backup my iphone on my macbook and do a total reset. Anything else?

    thanks!!

The credit report you see when you sign up with Experian credit tracker or any other Experian service is only a summary report. It does not contain DOFD or several other pieces of account data. It also only shows the last 24 months of payment history. To view that data, you must actually purchase a full report from Experian, or order one through annualcreditreport.com. The summary report also does not show SP's.

    Yes, but in order to avoid paying overage fees, you must BACKDATE your plan to start at the beginning of the current cycle, and you must make the change before the billing cycle ends.

In fact, I never used more than 20% of the total plan in any given month. If anything, my usage charges should go down, not up. Also, I hardly use text messaging. For example, this month I sent and received 2 text messages. No internet, no media, etc.

    abay is ripping you off via paypal on this situaion. don't give me garbage about processing costs the cost is the same whether or not you sell for $1 or $1000. so for those of you apologists for paypal you probably have more money than sense.

    DB:2.53:Paypal's Fee On Shipping Charges x9


    ebay forces you to use paypal

    Wrong - ebay forces you to use some kind of payment system that can be used by credit cards. You can use merchant banking, moneybookers or paymate as alternatives - on pickups, you can accept cash.

    ebay limits what you can charge for shipping magazines to $4 even if there are 100 pounds of magazines and limits books to $6 even if there are ten books in there.

    So don't sell a ton of books in 1 listing - you'll have a better chance selling individual copies, anyway. And nobody forces you to use ebay.

    so for those of you apologists for paypal you probably have more money than sense.

    I have adequate amounts of both, thank you - I follow the rules and MAKE money - you should try that instead of whining all the time.

I checked up on it this morning and the charge was still at 61%. When I try synching it with iTunes or just letting it charge on standby, it continues to turn on and off with the apple logo.

    Why does the smart limits feature set not offer a choice to block all calls from blocked / unidentified numbers? Other services like Verizon can do it so why not ATT?

    This should be something you should add immediately I am sure many others would agree, we don't want our kids getting calls from anonymous/blocked numbers.

    I would also like to suggest you change the features to include blocking all incoming calls except those on the allowed call list when the smart limits time of day feature is set not just outgoing calls how does this help when my child can just say you can call me after my phone turns off I just can't call you?

    Have you replaced the batteries on each and measured the battery drain on the new?

    On those two devices, can you install an app like BatteryGuru from AppWorld which will tell you the device Battery Health (drain/recharge cycles)?

    Remember, different users use and abuse devices differently, so they could be completely draining to 0-5% each day and recharging, which does kill the battery faster. Those to batteries could honestly have bad cells.

    Battery Guru will help you see that.

    I would also check this above...

    If what you're doing on the SERVER affects all of your BlackBerrys, then why are ONLY two having the battery drain issue?

    It could be a combination of both... but... only two are being affected?

    Replace the batteries. It's a much quicker resolution.

    First off, I am so thankful I found this forum! After many years of neglect, I am now seeing progress with my credit.

    Question, I had a ATT mobile account that was listed in Collections with Collection Company of America for $210. The DOFD is03/18/2008. A long story short, I disputed this charge with BBB. The next day I received a call from ATT's Executive Offices. ATT agreed that my complaint was correct, and took the account from charge off status to $0 balance. They said they would notify the Collection Company.

    Yesterday, I check my report and the collection company had updated their reporting and deleted the $210 charge. However, they are still reporting a balance of $38, which I assume is interest.

    What should I do next?

    Just a thought - if you have contact info for the ATT exec who fixed your other problem, I'd contact them about the rest. Even though the OC can't force the CA to do something, they probably have a lot of dealing with that CA and the CA will probably do it for that reason alone.

    The fact that ATT killed off the Data Limits function in Smart Limits before the promised replacement service was ready is frustrating.

    The fact that ATT have been totally silent on the date and features of this replacement service is unbelievable.

    I used to use the Data Limits feature to block my kids from data. I set the limit to zero MB, which meant no data but picture messaging still worked.

    When Data Limits retired, data continued to be blocked but now picture messaging doesn't work either (sending or receiving).

    I can't go in to Smart Limits and remove the Data Limit to reenable picture messaging as that feature is no long accessible on the Smart Limits web page, plus this would turn all their data on (which I don't want).

    I can't turn data on for each line in the main Account web page as it already says it is on (and challenge of not wanting all data access still applies).

    How can I block general data access for my kids but still allow their picture messaging to function?

Another dumb idea.The question is, who's dumb ideas are these. They need to be fired.This it the bad ATT coming back out. MBAs running the place, telling management this is a good idea to raise profits, and taking away popular features that we were PAYING for.As your customers, we had hoped this kind of behavior was behind you ...Seriously, put your MBAs in a room and lock the door until they reverse this dumb decision. You WILL lose customers. Thoseof us who can afford to move to another carrier WILL.The math will be bad for ATT, so reverse the policy. Or put thereplacement service in place immediately.IF anyone at ATT is listening, please call me for further detail.

    DB:2.47:Off Net Usuage 3s



    Hi!

    The last time when I wrote about my troubles with ATT and somebody pointed out the off-net usuage limit.

    Currently, I have 450 anytime minutes plan.

    So I get that I can only use 40% of what I am allowed to use because I live in off-net or partner zone area.

    here are the questions.

    so i get 5000 weekend minutes and unlimited mobil to mobil minutes.

    am i allowed to use 40% from the 5000 minutes as well as the 180 minutes (40% of 450 minutes) anytime?

    then am i allowed to use unllimited mobil to mobil?

    how about if i get the unlimited calling plan for $99.99...

    I won't have any limits even if i don't live in ATT zone?

    i will change the calling plan if i need to.

    Thank you!

    Have a great day!

    DB:2.47:Off Net Usuage 3s

    Off-net Usage: If your voice or messaging service usage (including unlimited services) during any two consecutive months or data service usage (including unlimited services) during any month on other carrier networks ("off-net usage") exceeds your off-net usage allowance, ATT may, at its option, terminate your service, deny your continued use of other carriers' coverage, or change your plan to one imposing usage charges for off-net usage. Your off-net usage allowance is equal to the lesser of 750 minutes or 40% of the Anytime Minutes, the lesser of 24 MB or 20% of the MB included with your plan or the lesser of 3000 messages or 50% of the messages included with your plan. ATT will provide notice that it intends to take any of the above actions, and you may terminate the agreement.
    Here is the way I was told a while back

    You only get lesser of 40% of your anytime minutes or 750 minutes before your considered excessive when off network. Your NW and M2M minutes are included in those numbers also. You do not get seperate allowances for those when factoring off-net usage. The same would be if you had an unlimited minute plan. You would be allowed 750 minutes of off-net usage before your flagged as excessive (750 is the lesser of unlimited).

    Since you have the 450 anytime minute plan you get 180 minutes total that you could use (anytime+ NW+ M2M) before considered off-net.

    Anyone else having issue with the new smart limits not working? Specifically not blocking texts during hours that are set like during school hours.

    I've even turned off data on the device I want to limit to spur iMessages from getting through seems to still be getting through.

    Also this new interface is not appealing "new smart limits" aren't anything but a refreshed look with a couple of preset times filled in that you may use to "block" things with. Not at all appealing ATT if this is what I am paying for perhaps I should just cancel the smart limits feature.

    DB:2.47:Att's Webmail Service For The My.Att.Net (Nap) Portal 8d


    These frequently asked questions offer general information about ATT's Webmail service for the my.att.net (NAP) portal.

    1. Can I keep my current ATT email address for use with HSI DSL Service?

    Answer: Yes. If you currently have ATT Internet Service for Dial-Up, you will be able to keep your current ATT email address for use with your new ATT HSI DSL Service. If you a new customer to ATT Internet Service, you will be provided with a new email address and additional email addresses can be created at no additional cost.

    2. What is the difference between Webmail and POP E-mail?

    Answer: ATT Webmail allows you to log in and view your email from the Internet, no matter what computer you are using or where you are worldwide. When you register for ATT Internet Service and receive an email address, you are automatically set up to use Webmail. All you need to do is log in on the Webmail page of the ATT Internet Service Home Page with your user name and password. Once you have logged in, you will be able to send and receive mail, as well as take advantage of features such as online folders, Manage SPAM, and multiple email boxes.

    POP E-mail allows an email application, such as Windows Mail, Outlook Express or Apple Mail, which is installed on your computer to retrieve your messages off ATT's mail server. You can use your email application to access and organize your messages on your computer - even when you do not have Internet access.

    3. Can I have more than one email address?

    Answer:

    Yes. ATT Internet Services offers two ways to have more than one email address:
    You can create an alias (or nickname) for your existing email mailbox. You can create an additional email mailbox. 4. How many alternate email names (aliases) do I get?

    Answer: You can only create one alias per email box, and it is good for Outlook Express and Webmail. Its advantage is that it provides you with an alternative email name that you can give to friends, family, and businesses.
    An email alias is an alternate email name (or nickname) for your existing email account, and it directs mail to the same mailbox as your user name does. Your user name continues to receive email along with the new alias name.

    5. What email software is compatible with ATT Internet Service?

    Answer: ATT Internet Services is compatible with most POP3 email software. However, we recommend using Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Outlook, Outlook Express, or Apple Mail.

    6. Can I access my email from the Internet without using any email software?

    Answer: Yes. You can read, send, and file your email with ATT Webmail using any Internet connection. Go to http://my.att.net/email and enter your email username and password to login.

    7. What is the correct syntax for ATT usernames?

    Answer: The username appears before the @ symbol, for example, username@domain.net. Your ATT username:
    Member ID must be between 3-18 characters in length. Member ID cannot contain any special characters except hyphen, underscores, or periods(-, _, .).The first character in a member ID must be a letter or a number. 8. Does ATT Internet Service provide a site for locating email addresses?

    Answer: ATT Internet Services does not provide a site for locating email addresses. However, this information may be available by using a public search engine.

    9. What are the storage space and message count limits for email?
    Answer: The maximum storage space and message count limit per mailbox on the server is provided below:

    Service Type

    Storage Space
    Per Mailbox
    (Webmail only)

    Message Count
    per Mailbox

    Webmail
    159

    Client-based Email
    10,000

    Webmail
    1,000

    NOTE: If a customer upgrades from Dial or Basic DSL to a higher speed of DSL, the mailbox storage space, message count, and message size limit will be updated accordingly.

    Storage Space Limit - Amount of space available to you on the ATT mail server for storing, sending and receiving email messages.

    Message Count Limit - Number of email messages that you can store on the ATT mail server at one time, including messages in all email folders - all Inbox folders including MailGuard and Saved folders, Sent Mail, Drafts and Trash.

    NOTE: As soon as the Storage Space Limit OR Message Count Limit has been reached (whichever comes first), the customer must login to webmail and completely remove some content.

    Message Size Limit - Size of a single message (Including the size of all attachments) that you can send from or receive into your ATT Internet Services email account.

    Recipients per Outgoing Message limit - Number of recipients email addresses that you can include on a single outgoing or sent message.

    Outgoing Message Count per Day - Number of email messages that can be sent per day.

    10. I received a MIME attachment. How do I read it?
    Answer: MIME is an acronym for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension. A file whose name ends in .mme, requires a MIME decoder to read the attachment.

    11. How do I know if my recipient really got my email?

    Answer: If you send an email and do not receive any error messages, then the email was probably delivered without any problems. Although most of the time emails are received shortly after they are sent, in some cases, based on size of email or network problems, the email may not be delivered for a couple of hours. When in doubt, send the email again.

    12. Why are some messages undeliverable?

    Answer: Most email errors are a result of incorrect emails addresses, whether typed incorrectly or just no longer valid. Please check the email address of the recipient and try again. Network issues may also prevent delivery of a email.

    13. What is an open relay and/or an open proxy?

    Answer: An open relay is an email server that allows anyone on the Internet to connect to it and send email. This is a popular method of abuse used by spammers. By connecting to a mail servers open relay, a spammer can send mail to anyone.
    An open proxy is similar to an open relay. An open proxy allows connections through ports not normally used.
    If you have an open relay or open proxies, it is important to close it as soon as possible. If not, you may be subjected to abuse by spammers causing your server to crash or all mail from your server to be blocked from sending email to major ISP's.

    14. Are there any guidelines or standards for sending mail to ATT customers?

    Answer: E-mail Acceptable Use Policy (http://my.att.net/legal/aup). Failure to adhere to the ATT Email standards will results in your email being blocked from entering the ATT network.

    15. Can I request a customers' personal information from ATT?

    Answer: Releasing personal and confidential information is against ATT’s Privacy Policy. For more information, please visit our Privacy Policy page.

    16. How do I keep my mail from going to the recipient’s spam folder?

    Answer: By adhering to ATT’s E-mail Acceptable Use Policy, your email will most likely be delivered successfully. If your email meets the guidelines found in our Acceptable Use Policy, but is still being filtered as spam, have the ATT customer change their ATT Manage SPAM options through ATT Webmail (http://my.att.net/email) to Off to permit all email to be delivered to their Inbox. They also have the option to Review the email from a MailGuard folder.

    17. Why are my email messages no longer in the Webmail Inbox?

    Answer: Your Webmail Inbox will empty if you have your email address configured in a Mail Client (e.g. Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, Outlook, Windows Mail, Apple Mail) and you do not have it set to leave a copy of the message on the server. Without that setting, every time you receive messages in your email client, it downloads them to your computer and removes them from the ATT Mail Servers.

    DB:2.46:Which Card Should I Apply For Bt ? cx

    Hey PoorGrad!The first thing I would ask is your level of concern on impact on your FICO score. Ignoring FICO impact, you clearly go with the best deal on overall interest over the period of the advance.However, considering FICO impact, keep it to the lowest effect on your %util of the account from which you secure the $5000.A strict BT does not usually allow you to use the money to pay directly back to the account from which transferred. . But most now offer you convenience checks which can be deposited directly into your checking account, and thus free to use any way you choose. Check out the options.Financial planning must be balanced against FICO planning. They are different. If you dont need new credit in the immediate future, your plan is clear. If, however, you will be seeking additional new credit in the immediate future, then you must put FICO impact into the equation, with the major consideration your %util on the accounts.

    There's no extra charge for receiving international calls. Whatever the price of one minute of airtime will be deducted, depending on which GoPhone plan you have. For example, if you have a a 10¢/min plan it'll cost you 10¢ for each minute of conversation. If you have a $2/day plan, it'll cost you $2 regardless of how long you talk that day, and so on.

    Whenever I leave the Denver metro area I loose service completely. My son has an iPhone with ATT and his will still have service wherever we go. I've tried turning off 3g, rebooting, resetting network settings, resetting all settings and finally I did a full restore via iTunes. I've also tried switching SIM cards with my son. My SIM card works in his iPhone but his does not work in mine. I've also called ATT to confirm my account is current as well as any settings on their end... Nothing and more nothing. Any ideas? I don't understand why it would work fine everywhere near home but not at all once I get a few miles outside the city limits. And still not at all when I get to a town that has an ATT tower.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Out of warranty replacement from Apple is $199. However, at this point you may be eligible for an upgrade to the new iPhone 4 for the same price (+2 year contract and $18 upgrade fee). Another choice is a 3rd party iPhone repair center which may be a lot less. Google to find one.

    ATT is the most rip-off company I ever dealt with.
    I can’t imagine this huge company they rip-off customer legally and nothing we can do.
    Where is the law?
    On Oct 19th I switched to ATT, to have better service, after I got the phone, I had problem with service, I called customer services, they came with many excuse like there are a lot trees around my house, and I need to upgrade to higher service to get this work.
    However, I decided to go back to my service provider after about 10 days (within 30 days trial period).
    I returned the phone and got confirmation email. Last night I got email about my ATT balance that reads $293.59 for less than 2 weeks “WOW”
    I called customer service, and thank GOD I talked to good person, he cleared $191.19
    The phone charge, “
    1-OK, if the phone returned in same condition why they charged me?
    2-The deal was $59.00 a month, then why they charged $102.40 for less than 2 weeks.
    Never thought that ATT biggest rip-off company on USA. They charge money as they wish.

    i'll agree if you were on a 59.99 voiceplan and canceled within 10 days of purcasing your phone the breakdown of charges would go like this

    prorated charge for 10 days : $20.00 (approx)

    Activation fee : $36.00

    now thats only 56.00, however did you use any internet on your phone or sms usage on your phone, because you would be charged a prorated charge for those features, and for the messaging you would have been provisioned with a certain amount of sms and may have recieved overages.....and thats something that the OP may not have mentioned...like what other features they was supposed to have

    DB:2.44:Roaming Charge? cz


    It depends on the exact location, but you may be surprised at the coverage provided in some areas by providers other than ATT and Verizon. In this area (very rural TN) I thought that CDMA coverage was only by Verizon. But as it turns out, SI Wireless (a company I had never heard of before) has towers in this area too providing roaming capabilities to Sprint and therefore to Republic Wireless. If you have some free time, you migt want to read through this:

    I have an HTC Aria phone with GPS on it. If I use an app which uses the GPS transceiver in my phone, like Compass or GPS Tracker lite -- is there an ATT charge for usage?? If I turn WiFi OFF, and I disable mobile network, and turn data roaming OFF --- the GPS tracker lite works fine -- and it seems like I am not connected to ATT at all. How can ATT charge me if I am not accessing their network?

    ATT does not charge for using the GPS radio on your device.

    The only time you will be charged for using a mapping application on your device is if you utilize the ATT Navigator program.

    There is no need to turn off Wi-Fi or the Cellular radio to use the GPS.

    card debt and it immediately raised my score! I still have the two judgements on my report (I am still in the process of working with the OC to see if they will remove) however my CR has been updated to show that they are paid and satisfied.

    I have disputed incorrect lates on my report this month and I am waiting impatiently to find out if I have been successful.

    Why not read unifi faq before asking in forum?wiki.ubnt.com/UniFi_FAQ#What_happens_if_the_controller_goes_offline_when_guest_portal_is_enabled.3Fthe answer is Yes.While I appreciate your help, you didn't fully read the original question.I have been around here long enough that I have of course read the FAQ. Thanks for trying.For anyone else that is interested, I tested it and YES it does seem that restricted subnets are in effect when the Guest Portal itself is turned off. :-)

    Few suggestions: Try Shopping Cart Trick cards such as Sportsman's Guide VISA, HSN, etc. first. If you don't know what those cards are, look for them in the credit card section and it'll tell you how to do it. Also, try some of the pre-qual sites and see if you get any matches there, too. Best of luck.

    DB:2.42:$49.00 3gs Phone p9



    I can't believe ATT would not let me upgrade to the newer 3GS because my bill was not up-to-date! I have been with ATT for over 5 years and have not defaulted on my bill at all. My bill is due by the 10th of each month, BUT I have until the 18th to have it paid-in-full. ATT will noy let you add the $49.00 charge to your existing bill, so you have to pay for the phone up front. This is part that I don't understand - If you have to pay for the phone up front, then why would ATT not car if your bill is paid up? It's not like they can't turn your service off. The phone is paid for at the time you purchase it. Really bums me out that ATT would not let me purchase this phone.

    DB:2.42:$49.00 3gs Phone p9

    it's pretty reasonable. they're letting you have a phone for $400 cheaper than it's full price and all they ask if that you pay your bill. it's standard policy, they're not picking on you. all this information was given to you at the time you started service so it's not like they never told you about it.

    You may want to look in the "Rebuilding" section for some ideas on how to handle a CO.

    Cap One does SP CLIs. There's a LUV button on their site (they don't make it easy to find). If you don't have success with that, you may want to call their EO. I managed to get a $250 CLI on my Cap One (was $400 before that)

    I wasrecentlysurprised to see a charge off for an amount of 16$ from ATT Credit Management Center. They reported this as "charged off as bad debt" in my Transunion credit report [not in others] -- apparently the account was closed in 4/2006. The only thing I can think of is that I had an ATT land line phone till 12/2005. Although I paid off the bills when I closed the service, this could be some left over bill from that. It is surprising that they reported it after 3.5 years as bad debt and not before [I know this because I check my credit report from all 3 agencies using the free credit report every year -- and it was not reported last year]. Since this is the only problem with my credit report, I would like to get rid of it if I can. A few questions:

    1. When will this fall off from my credit report on its own? I think 7 years from account closing [4/2006] -- can some one confirm?

    2. I disputed it with Transunion - noting truthfully that I dont know what this is related to.

    3. Should I pay this off with ATT -- I do have their address from the credit report?

    Just wanted to update the status -- after disputing it with Transunion, they deleted the charge off after investigation -- took them just 2 days. Thanks for the support and information.

    DB:2.41:Att Charge Off Help! fz



    Ok so after trying so hard to rebuild my credit and finally getting somewhere, yesterday I see a charge off from ATT for about $32. Now a little background, I did have an account with ATT up until September of 2014 in which I then transferred the account to someone else's name. Now other than that I never received anymore mail or e-mail's from ATT regarding this account whatsoever. So when I pulled up my credit report 2 days ago I see this Charge off. I then proceeded to contact ATT CSRand was told me that they usually never put anything on people's credit and that it was transferred to a collections agency. The name of the collection agency is diversified consulant. I then proceeded to contact the CA and was told that they never put it on my credit report. I then decided to try my luck with the Executive Office of ATT and was informed that they never put anything on my credit report and that they no longer owed the debt, I should contact the CA. Basically after a lot of back and forth with the Account manager and explaining everything, she kept contradicting herself and giving me a lot of run arounds. At the end she basically said that ATT no longer owns the debt and so I have to bring it up with the CA. Is there anything I can do to remove this from my account? Should I call the CA and go from there. I'm at a loss. Thanks for reading.

    Ignoring the CAs because paying them wont help your immediate FICO score may come back to bite you. The debt is still owed.

    I would at least consider the DOFD on the OC account that led up to each CA, and make sure you know the statute of limitations on the unpaid debt. You still run the risk of legal action against you, and should know if you have a valid SOL defense should that happen.

    So upset about ATT retiring data limits from smart limits. They realize this is how we limit our kids use of GB. Because of this I have reduced my monthly purchase from 20 GB @$200 to 10 GB @ way less. I will just turn my kids data off when they get to 7GB. I used to let them have 15GB. Everyone should rebel at this greedy move by ATT!

    DB:2.40:"Retiring" Data Management From Smart Limits sj

    This move is truly a slap in the face of the families trying to manage children and data. We pay the $4.95/mo per line to have the Smart Limits, which most of us purchase to limit data usage and data charges. Now we just pay the $4.95 and can't manage this, probably the most impactful use of the Smart Limits service.
    This is a really bad move on the part of ATT and I will examine competitors over time. Unfortunately no one really competes out where I live, so you have me short term ATT, but I will not give your company any kudos when folks discuss which carriers to go with.

    I'm not 100% sure, but it could be because they're using iMessage or other third party messaging services. That way ATT can show that those numbers communicate, but becausetheir communication is just data as far as ATT can see, no other logs are available.

    DB:2.40:Vonage Problems jf



    I had ATT Uverse installed about a month ago. The installer would not hook up my vonage v-portal between my PC and the ATT RG to set it up, he would only verify that my PC had a working internet connection. So after he left, I put the v-portal between my PC and ATT RG. It worked fine for about 3 weeks.

    Now, my internet connection along with Vonage goes down every ten minutes exactly. It comes back up after about 20 seconds. This is coupled with extremely poor voice quality when making a phone call with Vonage. The Vonage v-portal is setup as a DMZ device in the RG's firewall. When I pull the vonage device out of the loop and just run my PC straight into the RG, the internet connection is fine.

    Yesterday, Ieven tried using my old linksys WTR54G router between the ATT RG and the vonage v-portal. The internet connection still dies every 10 minutes. The Uverse TV works fine the whole time I'm having problems with the internet.

    Tonight I may try shutting off power to everything including the RG and booting them back up to see what happens.

    Any ideas?

    The only thing keeping me with ATT VOIP right now (I dropped their TV service) is the $10 bundled discount you get from ATT for have at least two services from them (Internet/Phone for me) so the numbers above drop to $15 and $20 with the discount. If ATT ever gets rid of the discount then I'm gone.... either to Vonage, Magic ads or even POTS.

    IMO, delivery problems do occur when you work in a large company. Sometimes materials may be delivered to the right company but thewrong building, resulting in hours and hours of hunting them down. For a company with multiple warehouses and thousands of items weekly, an item delivered to the wrong building is like a needle ina hay stack. I've seen anumber of those. They are most often an addressing problemorreceiving end problem.Make sure the customers know and the ATT persons know the correct address to deliver to ATT. Write down something on the package that is trackable by the receiving end. Also how the receiving end logs a received package can help too. Only ATT people can tell customers what info to put on a package to make it trackable.

    I just switched to Verizon from ATT and am quite disappointed to discover that Verizon's state government employee discount applies ONLY to the "account monthly access charges" and not to any line charge. Of course, with Verizon's new "share everything" plans, much of the monthly costs have been shifted to this line charge. In comparison, ATT offers the same discount off the entire bill.

    It's nice to receive a discount for being a state employee; however, potential Verizon customers should be aware that they will not receive the same discount from Verizon that they might have been receiving from ATT or another cellular provider.

    DB:2.39:Question About Credit Limits 91


    Maybe this has been asked and answered, but if you have high credit limits on your major cards and you only use, say 5 or 6% of it and PIF each month, has anyone ever had ther credit limits decreased because they have low usage? I have a PenFed with a 23k limit and I've never had more than a 1k limit of which was paid off two billings later. Since then, I charge gas and PIF each month so they really aren't making much interest off me.Since these people are in business to make money, do they look at your spending habits and say, "low utilization, maybe she doesn't need such a high credit limit". I know they can decrease your limit for missed payments, etc. Reason I ask is beacause for more than a few years I had a Macy's PlatinumStar Rewards store card and last year, they sent me a letter saying I hadn't spent enough to maintain it and they sent the Gold card. I didn't care about that but I wouldn't want my major cards decreased!

    DB:2.39:Question About Credit Limits 91

    That's something I'd wondered, too... I'm sure some of the less responsible lenders out there would like to see customers regularly maxing out their cards (and showing no realistic signs of paying them off in a great hurry), but for the PIF-ers/rarely carry a balance-ers, with cards from the kind of lender you want to keep happy... I wonder if there's some kind of optimal usage they'd like to see you getting out of it, some sweet spot that's not in any danger of maxing the thing out, but also not clear proof that you have no need for such a high credit limit. (Of course, the fact that you have NO NEED of a high credit limit is probably what makes the good CCCs GIVE you a high credit limit!)My highest credit line is $7,400, and I've never had a balance higher than about $1200 on there at any point - usually it runs closer to about $500 maximum at any given time as I make payments on the thing so regularly, it doesn't have time to build up a balance.There must be some kind of spending-to-limit range that keeps 'em happy - bet it differs wildly between issuers, though!

    You can either make a one-off credit transfer of up to $15, or if you create a 4-digit PIN you can make a one-off transfer of up to $100 anytime using your personal Telstra Post-Paid mobile phone. You can also set up scheduled monthly transfers.

    Can I make a Credit Me2U credit transfer to any Telstra Pre-Paid mobile number?

Yes, ATT charges your minutes when people leave voicemails, which are out ofmy control!When I called Customer Support, they confirmed it. So, I had my voicemails turned OFF, so I can control NO CHARGES. Also, I should be able to set how many seconds before my voicemail picks up and be able to turn off and on my voicemail, but nope you can't do that. You have to call Customer Support to do it.I can understand if I check my voicemails from my cell phone, i'm activating the network, but see I have achoice. I could use a landline phone to check my voicemails and not use my cell phone. (Some companies don't even charge you for checking your voicemail messages.)Also, ATT offers customers in Puerto Ricothat therefirst incoming minute is FREE. Why aren't you doing that everywhere? This would solve the problem with people leaving voicemails for the most part.ATT, please seriously consider removing a charge for people leaving voicemails! Also, first incoming minute being FREE would also be very competitive in the market and a nice selling point.

    Yes.Check from a landline, if your minutes usage are a concern.If you don't have a bank of rollover minutes built up, you might want to consider going to the next plan up.Typically, you get about 300 or moreminutes for every $20 extra you spend on a voice plan.Overages cost about $0.45 / minute (44 minutes of overage = $20)...So it's better to have the $20 "insurance" of 300 more minutes against overages than to have to watch your minutes like a hawk.
    There are no fees involved with upping or downgrading voice plans (unless you ordered your service through a 3rd party, e.g., Amazon, LetsTalk, etc.), as you need to.For example I was on a 2100 minute plan, but we built up about 5000 RO's...We decided to downgrade to 1400 minute plan (lost 3600 ROs)... but we are staying under the 1400 and building our ROs slowly now...This means the 1400 plan is the right plan for us. You might be on the other side, where you need the 2100 minutes instead of the 1400 minutes. Just look at your usage and do the math to see what is best for you (and your peace of mind).

    DB:2.38:Att Blackberry Email f7


    Greetings!!

    The blackberry email is a free of charge however, the emails being sent and received from any email account on the device is considered data so, it will come out of the data package you are on (when not on wifi). So if you have 10GB, it will deduct from the 10GB, if you are not connected to wifi. Also, remember this device is a smartphone so, applications, web, emails, streaming, and more are apart of data. It is basically easier to say, making and receiving calls, voicemail, and messaging come out of whatever calling plan you have. So, if you have the mobile share unlimited talk and text, this would be unlimited. I hope this she some light on your question!

Recently PAID OFF the majority of thecredit line(s) or credit/charge card(s) that had balances on them; the credit limits on thesecredit line(s) or credit/charge card(s) are nominal (less than $3000/per card). I also paid off a personal secured loan early in an effort to improve my credit score(s). Over the past several years, I have never been past due on any of these accounts, nor have I had any late payments.

    I intend to keep only threecredit line(s) or credit/charge card(s) open, in addition to our mortgage and a car loan. I am trying to improve my (and my husband's) credit score(s) prior to financing a portion of the purchase of a new car. Any ideas, comments?

    DB:2.38:Closing Credit Card Accounts 1d


    3 lines of credit (credit / charge cards) is fine

    there's no right / wrong way to close a card, really, but if you do close a card of the same institutiton (i.e. a Chase card when you plan on keeping a Chase card), it might be worth calling and trying to transfer the credit limit to the other card. this is what happens to your credit score when you close a credit card

    + gain peace of mind as it's easier to manage less cards

    - in 10 years, your score will drop because your card will disappear from reports and your "average age of accounts" will most likely drop (no short term effect)

    - in the immediate term, your "credit card utilization" (basically means how much of your available credit you're actually losing) rises because you're losing available credit, so your score will drop.

    not sure, but paying off your personal secured loan early might actually have a negative impact on your scores. i paid my loans off early under the same logic and my scores dropped slightly after a few months. it eems the score wants to know how you're actively managing credit, so past credit responsibility (i.e. those paid off loans) aren't taken into consideration as much. i could totally be wrong though and that drop could have come from somewhere else

    Smart Limits for Wireless service does not allowblockingallincoming callsbecauseATT wants emergency responders to have the capability to calla customer or their children backif their 911 call is disconnected or if additional information is required to provide the needed assistance.IfSmart Limitsfor Wireless allowed blockingallincoming calls,and you or your child's911 call was disconnected, the emergency responderswouldnot be able to contact your child.
    THIS IS A COUP OUT.... Other carriers disable voice restrictions in the event of a caller dialing 911. For a company who prouds themselves in being innovative and up to date on technology is proves that it's not true. I hope the merger with T-Mobile is allowed since they are far more advanced than ATT. ATT customers do need help in the technology dept.

    Smart Limits for Wireless does allowblocking alloutgoing calls(a customer can still place a 911 call when all outgoing calls are blocked).In addition, Smart Limits for Wireless allowscustomers to specify up to 15 phone numbers (blocked numbers) which cannot call or text your child, or vice versa.

    This would be a pain in the rear end to do every day. Especially when other carriers are CAPABLE of such technology. They allow the parent to actually choose when the kids receive calls. You a parent would not put their child in harms away. We would not restrict incoming calls if that was the childs only form of communication. We want to disallow incoming calls while a child is at school (not a problem in case of emergency) or at night (while the parents are sleeping in the other room with phones that have no restrictions). I think ATT doesn't give parents enough credit. Parents know what is best for their child.

    If you do not have the bank account confirmed your payments should be coming from the card registered on the account but you can double check this on the 'Confirmation Page' at the time of completing the payment.

    DB:2.37:Att Iphone Cannot Connect To Att U-Verse Wifi jd


    My ATT iphone has no problem keeping wi-fi connections, EXCEPT when I'm trying to connect to my home U-verse wifi (via the pacer 3600 ATT router). The connection constantly drops off and back on. Other devices have no problem connecting to the U-verse wifi either. The result is that my ATT wireless bill goes through the roof for exceeding my data limits because my ATT home internet service drops the connection. Am I being paranoid or is ATT doing this on purpose? Or is there a fix for this problem?

    DB:2.37:Imessage On, Send As Sms Off, And Texting Blocked, Yet Getting Charged c1



    I have iMessage enabled, "Send as SMS" disabled, and my texting blocked at ATT. So I was surprised to get a $50 texting charge from ATT this last cycle. It turns out, as a customer service rep explained to me, that when I attempt to text to someone who is not on iMessage, they have this trick where they send the message via another route as a "ATT Instant Message". This is not free internet instant messaging, this is something from ATT where they can still charge you texting fees, even when you have texting disabled.

    Of course this seems like a nasty trick to me, and I am angry about it. My intentions are clear that I do not want to receive texts outside of iMessage and ATT has found a way to charge me anyways.

    I don't text much, and it appears this was text messages to ONE person, so they're clearly looking to make a mint off this.

    She told me that there is no way to block this new trick, and my only choice is to sign up for unlimited texting ($10/mo for ATT). Is anyone aware of a way to stop these tricky charges from appearing, aside from leaving ATT?

    If we were to give OP the benefit of the doubt when he/she stated that his/her ATT account has SMS text blocking enabled, then one could surmise that the blocking isn't working correctly/fully as expected.

    I have SMS/MMS text blocking on my account/lines and as such, I would not attempt to knowingly send an SMS message (i.e., not an iMessage) to anyone via ATT's SMS infrastructure...and even if I did try to do so, I don't have any expectation that such an attempt will actually go through and be received by the receiving party successfully...and I definitely would not expect to be billed for any SMS/MMS text sent/received on a line that has a valid SMS/MMS block put into place by ATT per my request. If SMS/MMS text block doesn't guarantee that one could still be billed for sending/receiving a SMS/MMS message, then IMHO ATT needs to explicitly and clearly define what an SMS/MMS message will and won't do or result in happening.
