Hey guys, I know there is a thread on getting att upgrade fees waived but what are my chances on getting a new account activation fee waived? I have about 10 new lines on AT&T under a new account. Majority of the lines are ported over from other providers. I am going to have to wait until I recieve all my iPhones then I'll call in and try to get them waived altogether. Does any att veterans have any tips on how to increase my chance of success or am I just stuck with having to pay 360 in a useless fee. All the phones were placed online. Thanks. (Any dialogue examples will help a lot too)

Usually they only waive the fees if you are a long time customer; however, you are adding a lot of lines so they may cut you some slack. Maybe half for free. Your best pitch would be "If I cannot get help with these fees, I will take my business elsewhere. I am adding 10 lines....10!"
