Here’s how.

AT&T has implemented the following changes: 

  • Waived late fees for postpaid wireless and broadband or home phone residential customers
  • Waived domestic wireless plan coverage changes for data, voice, or text 
  • Halted zero service terminations
  • Provided unlimited data for laptop, tablets, and hotspots for 60 days

  • Provided open public Wi-Fi hotspots
  • Allowed free phone calls for military personnel on select Navy ships (until April 30, 2020)
  • Continued 24/7 online support 

AT&T will waive these late fees through May 13, 2020. Please note that it may take a couple billing cycles until your account reflects your updated balance.

Prepared to help the community stay safe

For a limited time, AT&T will offer free express shipping on online orders for wireless customers. 

In addition, AT&T is now offering curbside pick-up and doorstep delivery for online orders. Curbside pick-ups will allow customers to pick up orders at open AT&T stores without leaving their cars.
