Thanks !! Ordered via phone. Rep was unaware of promotion but honored it. Could not use ExtraGift for $25 via phone order. Gave me additional DVR free for 6 mos. Waiting for a while to dump cable, this was too good to pass up. ( $500 offer didn't show up online until you start adding items into your cart. Then it gives you a message you are available for special promotions. I had to talk the phone rep through it so he could take a screen shot and send it to his supervisor.)

The $500 offer showed for me with a package of U200, 6MB internet and unlimited phone service.

In the end I ordered on the phone because my order couldn't be processed. When I called they saw the "ExtraGift" code and it was applicable. They also offered me 10$/month for 6 months off of the u200 package, my first month of HD free, and an additional $40 Visa card for the 6MB internet package.

On a side note, the reason they couldn't process my order was because I was considered "High Risk" when they did a credit check. I am certain I am not and AT&T could not tell me why that was the case. I called equifax and got a copy of my credit report. The report shows no negative information at all, and an excellent payment history. I just purchased a home, which actually hasn't shown up on the credit report yet, and was approved for the loan in December. I had a credit score done at that time and it was above 700. Anyone have any ideas? I can't process the order while considered "High Risk" unless I pay a non refundable $450 fee! I keep getting the jerk around from Equifax and AT&T. I am going to do a conference call today and see if that helps. Maybe when the mortgage shows up that will help too. Pretty annoying though, no cable or internet at home till then. FrownConfused[

We're sorry. Currently, AT&T U-verse service isn't available for the address associated with this phone number... really?!?! Damn they slow on the rollout here in San Diego.

Neither TU or TD on this, but just so you folks know:

Pros
1) The TV service is phenomenal
2) The price on the phone service is good, no difference in quality
3) Pricing is always competitive *AND* they seem to 'shop the competition' -- you won't usually have to threaten them with cancellation to get a match (cable in my area will make you go through with a disconnect before they decide they want you enough to lower service)

Cons
1) The phone is not a hard line - power-out=no phone; this only matters to a few people at this point
2) Whereas almost everyone is always friendly and helpful, the sheer size of AT&T and the way it is organized makes it difficult for someone in customer service to get to you locally
3) Installation . . .see below.

----------------
Installation
You are "green lighted" by street, not by house. This means that if you get a certain number of houses (I don't know if it's one house or a percentage) that is "within range", then the database (both what you can online and customer service & sales can see) will say you have the ability to get the service.

Installation time is usually estimated at 2hrs per service (6hr installation for all 3).

I tried to have internet-only installed a year and a half ago. They were over-booked for install, and I basically waited for 8 hours for the guy to show up. After 5 hours (Saturday) all of the customer service phone numbers were closed for the weekend and I basically was going nuts. One rep had gotten my phone number to the end-tech, who DID call, and ultimately got there at 8pm.

The poor guy was exhausted . . . being the nice guy I am, I asked him to still do the install Big Grin After a bunch of testing (probably 30-40 minutes), he discovered that my house was out of range to get a full sync . . . so I was glad I didn't reschedule and then have him come back to tell me that.

The only problem that I see with this is that if their internal system was better, they could have known that already. Phone companies have VERY detailed maps of all of the wiring in their territory, both on paper, and on computer that they know how far you are out. This apparently was never integrated into the system before U-Verse was rolled out.

---------------------

The bottom line is the price and service is good, but setup can potentially be a hassle. When my dish contract is up in August, I'm going to give them another shot to install; hopefully they've put a repeater in since then.

Do they have to do any new inside wiring, or do they use your existing phone, cable line?

As someone who has watched UVerse rebates go up and down, $500 is excellent. I waited quite a while and jumped on a one-day, $425 rebate for TV and internet late last year.

Just FYI, if you go back and read other UVerse threads, you will hear about people who had no trouble getting the rebate and others who did have trouble. I did have trouble (got $200 in Visa cards instead of promised $425), but a few calls to Customer Service took care of it. It helped tremendously that, during my original order, I asked them to specifically document the rebate amount in the notes.

Shouldn't be an issue, unless your power is out for a very extended period.
When I had my U-verse installed in January, they included a pretty robust looking
Uninterruptable Power Supply connected to the router. I believe it supplies power
for 4 hours.

No new wiring in my case. They use both the existing telephone wiring and coaxial.

Can we cancel our current Uverse service and then re-sign up? The pricing is actually $10 cheaper on the Max Plus internet now than what we're currently paying. So nice of AT&T to drop the pricing on the plan, but not adjust it on customers' bills who are already getting service.

Your score should be fine for approval. By any chance do you recall asking any of the
three major credit reporting agencies to place a "fraud alert" on your credit report?
Or, if you didn't specifically request a fraud alert, have you recently disputed an entry
as "not belonging" to you? (because I believe in such cases, Experien and others will
place a 1-month "fraud alert" on your records to prevent Identity Theft.)

I'd make a quick call and double-check that it isn't a fraud alert preventing AT&T from
retrieving your credit information.

Hell, I'd just call and complain, and ask them to adjust yours lower. You'd be surprised
how often that works, particularly when they risk losing a customer...

Good point, if you have a UPS (and the blackout doesn't extend to the C.O.) you should be good to go. I should pick one up for my mom.

Yea I was pleasantly suprised -- primarily because they didn't charge for it!
