Appears that the new ATT combined account system no longer allows "temporary" service address changes that many RV owners and other vacationer's use to get local stations when away from home for a temporary stay outside of their spot beam. Up until last spring, it was a painless and straight forward process to call and get the service address changed so you could receive local broadcast stations while vacationing in our RV outside our normal spot beam. So when I myself had some difficulty this past year in getting our locals changed between our home and seasonal vacation site, I simply wrote it off as yet another hassle when dealing with the offshore call center reps vs. any real efforts by ATT to stop the practice all together. But then I started hearing about other RVer's having issues with some even being told it couldn't be done any longer. So I called myself to see if I could get more info on this before our trip this upcoming winter. After lengthy discussions about this with both US based tech support and retention, they both told me the same thing and this is going to be the new policy going forward. If your account has been migrated or setup in the new combined ATT account management system, a service address change request now invokes a "move" process where all your receivers on your home account are deactivated, a truck roll is scheduled for your new location, which could be days away (or more) so a tech can come out to make sure everything is satisfactory at your temporary location and then the tech is the ONLY one that can reactivate your equipment. Oh and to top it off, they will try to charge you a movers "fee" of almost 200.00 for each change AND happily give you a new 2 year commitment to boot even though no equipment has changed and all that was done was to reactivate your current equipment that they previously deactivated unnecessarily! This has also been confirmed by dozens if not hundreds of other posts about this same thing from numerous RV boards that are already experiencing this. If your lucky enough to not have your account moved yet and are still able to change your service address under the old system, never fear, according to tech support and retention, your days are numbered. And like I said, this change isn't going to just affect the RV crowd, who are already on edge with the upcoming mpeg4 transition, it's going to affect a lot of HD viewers as well such as snowbirds and others who temporarily change locations to vacation homes, rentals, etc. and don't want to maintain two separate accounts or can afford hundreds of dollars a year in moving charges, constant renewal of their 2 year commitment as well as waiting for tech to show up to simply verify you connected your receivers properly so they can activate receivers on your account again. It's not rocket science to disconnect and reconnect a DirecTV receiver. It just makes no sense to me and many others who have done this for years. I suppose there are a few subscribers in the RV community, especially full timers, that will stick with DirecTV and use DNS accounts or just go without locals if they don't have good reception with their antennas, etc. but for many, it just seems like one more thing to make DirecTV even more difficult for these subscribers. In the day and age of needing to make services more "user friendly" than not to grow a subscriber base, ATT sure doesn't seem to really give a crap one way or the other and for the first time in over 18 years, I am seriously planning a move to Dish network, at least in the RV. Really sad.
