AT&T Wireless Waiving Voice and Text Overages in November

Posted on: November 12th, 2012 at 11:18 am by

AT&T Wireless is following the lead of archnemesis Verizon by throwing a bone to its subscriber base. Customers residing in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy need not worry about voice or text overages during the month of November; data is not included in this relief plan, though. The late payment window will also be extended and late fees waived.

Below are some FAQs that were included in the press release:

What about service before today? Am I charged for overages last week?
Usage prior to October 29 or after November 30 will be billed normally.

Will charges be waived through the entire month of November?
Yes. We expect recovery to affect many customers’ regular services for weeks and we want to make sure that we allow for them to make use of service while working to put their lives back in order.

Does this mean I won’t pay anything?
No. This offer is to waive overage charges for voice and text only.

Will I get a discount on my next bill? How will I know if I went over?
You should see no additional voice or text charges on your bill beyond your monthly plan charges.

What about data overages? Will you waive those?
If a customer has a specific, storm-related situation causing data overages we encourage him/her to contact our customer care teams.
