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 GetHuman-marybort's own words
I want to know why direct tv increased the protection plan from $*.** to $*.** (and therefor the tax increased a few cents). Direct tv hasn’t offered anything new to justify this increase so therefore I don’t believe that this is a legal or lawful increase. The people at Directv have told me they sent a letter,or e-mail out telling about the increase. I didn’t receive notification either way. All I want to know anyways is, what is their justification in the increase as the protection plan hasn’t changed at all. So far I felt like I have been given the runaround as they can’t explain the reason why.
GetHuman-marybort did not yet indicate what DirecTV should do to make this right.
I have an issue with DirecTV too
How GetHuman-marybort fixed the problem
As directv couldn’t give me a good,reasonable answer for the increase, I just cancelled the service. Not only did I I save the $*.** raise but, I saved the whole charge of $*.**. That is the only recourse we have as consumers is to cancel the subscription.
