    Here's a fun thing to try. Everybody do it now:

    1. Go to http://forums.imore.com/e?link=https...token=vgfuL7g9

    2. Type "Why is AT&T customer service SO ****ED UP" in the search field. (Where **** = F, U, C, and K)

    3. Behold the answer we've all been waiting for.

    If you don't have the time, or if your internet service is down (as ours was for 2 days for
    no apparent reason), here's a screenshot:

    Have been struggling with DSL outage, which resulted in:

    1) trying to get past AT&T's automated tech support brush-off system,
    2) ignorant live customer support employees blaming other divisions of the company,
    3) four different support telephone numbers, all different, that all lead back to #1,
    4) being forced to stay at home all day, until 7pm, for the repair technician, and
    5) getting stuck in att.com's support web site trying to cancel the repair request
    (because the problem mysteriously disappeared for no reason.)

    On top of all that, which has been going on for 3 days and counting:

    - A previous AT&T repair request (on a different phone line) was completely ignored.
    The technician showed up the next day, unannounced, on a weekend morning.
    No explanation other than "Don't know what happened there, sorry."

    So no, I don't "get it" either. There is "no point."

    AT&T are a bunch of clueless MFers.

    That's why they work for Att customer service and not a nice college educated corporate job.

    Out of warranty HTC phone went FUBAR on Monday. Decided to get a new iPhone.

    1. Called on Tuesday to order. Rep said she made the order but I got no email confirmation
    2. On Wednesday I called to see if the order was in the system. Was told that 24 hours had not lapsed and to try back after the 24 hours has elapsed.
    3. On Thursday I was told that the web system was down and that the phone "probably" had already been shipped, and they would call me back with an update on Friday at 11 am with an update.
    4. On Friday. The time had passed and I finally got in touch with Angela, who did real research and discovered the first person I talked two hadn't finished the order. She cancelled the first order and submitted the new order. Within two hours, I got an email confirmation and a tracking number.

    In the meantime, I've been without a phone since Monday. AT&T did credit my account for $50' but I've lost business because of this situation. Thanks to Angela, but the incompetence of others, I've been in a mess. I will say this is the first screw up I've experienced in 5 years with AT&T, but it was an expensive one.

    Because then there would be nothing to complain about on here.

    Couldn't agree more. People love to complain. You don't ever see posts about how good atts customer service is. Or you rarely do. I have never had a problem with AT&T. They have been better to me than Verizon ever was.

    I agree, I used to have Cingular before they were sold to AT&T and I would always go into the store whenever I had issues, so I "had a guy" pretty much and NEVER had a bad customer service experience... When they got sold to AT&T I lost my guy, still never had any issues. Since I switched to Verizon, it seems like I have billing issues every other
    Month and it NEVER goes easy in the phone....

    Local store had none in stock. The 40 mile trip was something I didn't have time for and the web site has been exemplary before.

    Buy from a store. Support your local economy by putting money directly into a reps pocket. Buying online puts money directly into an exec's pocket.
