Top Tip from another customer
To cancel your AT&T account you will need to call into support. But before, you should find another provider and check to see if your number is portable, meaning you can bring the phone number to another company.
The issue in GetHuman2458223's own words
Called AT&T cust service to cancel my brother’s cell service because he died. They said to go to AT&T store and show my brother Lloyd’s death certificate. Went to Soscol store (Napa CA) and Ivan (store employee) had me call AT&T Cust service ***-***-**** and spoke w*Becky of Cancellation Dept. She would not cancel Lloyd’s cell phone because we did not have his account *. I asked her if my deceased brother’s account was online how are we supposed to get it? She had no answer and said my brother would continued to be billed and then it would go into collections. In good faith I tried to close my deceased brother’s cell phone account but AT&T wouldn’t let me. Wasted about ** mins with AT&T clowns at store and customer service who could not help me or give me useful directions to close my deceased brother’s account so charges would not accrue.
GetHuman2458223 did not yet indicate what AT&T should do to make this right.
I have an issue with AT&T too
