  1. is there a better and more convient way of paying stream energy bill by phone if my card is not accepted.First i was told it was ok to pay my bill over the phone with my prepaid card from walmart, now i am being told it doesnt recognize my card. i called to check my balance on my card it was there and i called back to stream energy to be told again that it doesnt recognize my card. i would like to stay with the service provider but need better and reliable ways to make sure my card is acceptable. i sure hope that you can work with me to pay my bill using my walmart debit card.its not like the money isnt there, the money is there.please help

  2. Stream told me that in order to qualify for assistance I had to be below the poverty line. I’m all for helping the needy but just this ONCE I would have liked help. Unexpected expenses came about and unfortunately the money well ran a little dry. They also told me that since I had two extension in 2011, I’m not eligible for another until June!! I wish they could have just made an exception.

  3. I want to have my payments automatically deducted from my checking count. I understand you do not charge for this service. Phone lines do not help with this request. How do I do it? Thank you.
