ADT Bill

What to Do When You Can’t Pay Your ADT Bill

ADT is a well-known security service providing installation and monitoring of security systems in residential and commercial buildings. The company offers special packages with free installation and upgrades from time to time, but contracts require two to three years of monitoring unless customers want to pay an early termination fee. If a customer moves while under contract, ADT will require the customer start a new contract at the new address.

How to Pay a Bill

ADT uses local monitoring companies in many cases. In this case, you need to send payment to the local company named on your contract. If your contract is through ADT, there are various options for making payment.

  1. I am unable to pay my bill for at least another month. I am out of work and money, but hoping to get work really soon. Can you please discontinue this service until I can pay the full amount to get caught up? I want to avoid any more monthly payments for now. I have not used the alarms for several months now as I do not feel it is right to use them and not be able to pay.

    Thank you,

  2. Adt let me go for months without paying. Then one day it got shut off and I called them and asked them why it was shut off. Needless to say my wife at that time was not paying the bill like I thought she was. I did alot of traveling for work so I thought it was getting paid. I had a problem with one of the door senser and called adt about it. The lady I talked to said let me see if you have insurance on your adt stuff. I said ok. She came back on the phone and said well there is good and bad news. Ok??? What is the bad news I asked. She said you do have insurance on you stuff but you are behind in your bill. Ok well how much do I owe I asked. She said $397.94. How much I asked. She said the bill has not been paid for like a year. So I worked out a payment plain with adt and a divorce lawyer!!!

    • Sorry but, Matthew I think your going a bit too far!!!! ADT hounds you constantly, so I find it hard to believe you could possibly go a year without paying them, My due date hasn’t even passed yet and there calling,they want you to pay a months in advance, in the economy being so bad, most people get paid every two weeks,they’ve had these same standards ever since I’ve had them going back 8 years, but the charges keep on going up,some of there automated call system collection people are quite nasty, but others are pleasant, I’m telling you they call even before any due date, and your paying one’s month in advance, and then 2 months ahead of time, that’s their quarterly billing. But going to hire a Divorce lawyer is just going a little too far, and sounds abusive to me!!

  3. My initial encounter was so reassuring. After that…..hah…..their equipment was faulty and I was going to be charged a service fee. When I explained that I should not…..they waived fee but were very rude and LET ME KNOW it would not happen again! Service man was very agitated and RUDE! Now they tell me I have to upgrade and my bill is “upgraded” too. They have already been increasing my bill for several months. Going to find another provider.

  4. I loved as much as you will receive carried out right here. The sketch is attractive, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an impatience over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come more formerly again since exactly the same nearly very often inside case you shield this increase.

  5. How the Penalty Fees Work

    penalty fees work by putting BS into a contract you have no power to change or negotiate. After being a customer for 5 years and having to call every year when they double my bill i finally got fed up and switched only to be slapped with ~$180 cancellation fee because you they still want to be paid for a year of doing nothing but having a computer ping when a sensor goes off. They offered to lower my rate all the way down to $14 a month for 3 (about half the term of my contract). I offered to pay 14 a month upfront for the rest of the contract (about $90 altogether) because let’s face it doesn’t cost them anything to keep monitoring your system unless it actually goes off but no they won’t do it so they aren’t getting anymore money. (fyi i paid up my bill because that is the right thing to do, unlike cancellation fees)
