AT&T Account Suspended—Learn How To Recover It
AT&T is a company that manages millions of internet, cable TV, and phone accounts. If you got your AT&T account suspended, you can rely on DoNotPay to help you make an appeal.
In this article, we’ve gathered all the information about the AT&T account suspension and possible solutions for the issue. If you are wondering whether you can appeal a suspended account and why you got suspended in the first place, we provide the answers.
In its terms of service, AT&T states that it reserves the right to change, suspend, or terminate user accounts for any reason. The most common reasons for getting your AT&T account suspended are:
- AT&T Acceptable Use Policy violations
- Going over the AT&T data limit
- Lost and stolen AT&T device
Any misuse of AT&T services and actions that go against the AT&T Acceptable Use Policy are reasons for an AT&T account suspension. Here are some examples of what that encompasses:
- Abuse and threats directed towards customer representatives or employees
- Fraud and illegal use of AT&T services
- Inaccurate or misleading user credit information
- Violation of intellectual property rights
- Failure to make the required payments
If you report to AT&T that your wireless device is stolen or lost, the company can temporarily suspend service to your account. Once you get a new device, you can get unsuspended by contacting AT&T customer support.
If you are using AT&T off-net services, you should know that they have limitations you should not exceed. You will get suspended if you exceed the limits of the following offline data:
- Using more than 750 minutes per month
- Going over 3,000 messages per month
- Exhausting over 100 megabytes per month
If you went over any of these data limits, AT&T will send you a warning before a suspension.
Your AT&T account may be suspended if you were:
- Late with payments
- Hospitalized or incarcerated
- Serving the military
If you got suspended because you failed to make a payment for your AT&T service, you can easily get your account back by following these steps:
- Pay the entire amount of your past-due balance
- Wait five minutes
- Restart your device to get the service back
To reactivate your AT&T account when you get released from hospital or jail, you have to:
- Contact AT&T customer service
- Provide information about the date of your release
If you had your AT&T account suspended while you were serving the U.S. army, you should contact AT&T customer service. An AT&T customer representative will help you reactivate your account.
In case you are using AT&T U-verse TV services, your account may get suspended if you:
- Fail to pay monthly fees
- Exceed your service limitations
- Violate the terms of service
- Engage in illegal or fraudulent actions
If you get suspended for any of these reasons, you will have two options:
- Follow the reactivation procedure for non-payment suspensions
- Contact AT&T customer support
Sometimes, these actions will not be enough. You may pay your past-due balance and even contact customer service to file an appeal and not get unsuspended.
