An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this AT&T Tech Support phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like AT&T Tech Support staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.
The least busy time to call
The least busy day to call AT&T Tech Support is Wednesday. The most busy day to call is Thursday, which averages 152% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 323 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.
The shortest wait on hold
We measured the shortest hold times to be on Monday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Wednesday.
The best time to call
In summation, the best day to call AT&T Tech Support is Wednesday.

Plus we believe that AT&T Tech Support staffs the call center well on Wednesday.

My Experience Calling 877-737-2478

Calling AT&T was a fairly straightforward task, and I only spent few minutes on the phone and a few minutes off the phone waiting for a callback. Therefore, I'd certainly use the customer repair number again if I had a problem, although it might be preferable if I didn't have any! Usually, when I have a problem with my service I like to go down to my nearest AT&T shop, but since this problem was with my modem I didn't know if that was an option or not. 

Anyhow, when I called, the recorded message said, "Thank you for calling the AT&T Repair Center" and asked me to press 1 for English. The standard message told me that all calls are recorded for quality, then asked me, "What's the issue you're calling about?" I answered, "Problems with my modem" and waited for a second. The voice assistant responded, "Please tell me more about the issue you're having with your modem." I wasn't sure what to say, so I tried saying "It won't connect consistently" which seemed to work because that got me to the next step. 

Then, the voice assistant told me it could see the number I was calling from, and asked if this was the same number that I was calling about. I told them that it was. It then said, "One minute while I handle this." That was actually nice because the team was able to access my account so I didn't have to handle that when I got through to the customer service representative. They did however ask me for the passcode to the account so there was a second layer of security which I also appreciated. 

Next, it took me to a hold line but told me that there would be a wait, and if I preferred it could offer me a callback. The callback option would save my place in line. It told me the wait time would be about 6 to 7 minutes, and it was up to me if I wanted to stay on the line or not. The wait time wasn't bad so I just stayed on the line, but it's a nice option if there's a long wait time. Someone answered after about 6 minutes and they were very helpful and clear. They walked me through some troubleshooting steps which unfortunately didn't work but set me up for a replacement which should solve the issue.
