- Can I temporarily suspend any of my AT&T services online?
You can place residential AT&T Internet, AT&T Phone, U-verse TV, DIRECTV, or Fixed Wireless Internet on a temporary hold for 60 days.. To be eligible for a suspension, your service has to have been active for 30 days, and your account must be current. During this time you:
- Will have limited or no access to the service(s) on hold
- Won’t have a monthly plan charge.
- May be responsible for monthly equipment or other AT&T fees as well as any applicable surcharges and taxes.
Have AT&T Internet, AT&T Phone, or U-verse TV on a combined bill? You can’t suspend these services individually. A request to suspend will apply to all of these services on the combined bill.
Heads up: We can’t process an online suspend request for business accounts or if your service is already suspended.
- Can I cancel or disconnect any of the AT&T Services Online?
You can cancel residential DSL High Speed Internet or Traditional Home Phone online (business accounts aren’t eligible). If you cancel either
service, and change your mind, we may not be able to restore the service or phone number to your location. If your service is:
- Part of a bundled discount, the price of remaining services (if any) may revert to then-existing price for such service.
- Part of a combined bill, the remaining service(s) will continue to be billed unless cancelled.
- Subject to a term plan, you’ll be subject to any early termination fee associated with that plan. Submit an online disconnect request
