How to Pay Your AT&T Phone Bill (4)3 min read

Paying your cell phone bill is never particularly fun. So it shouldn’t be difficult too. Don’t worry, we got you.

This article will guide you through paying your phone bill, whether you’re using an app, a web browser, or another method.

You can also check out our favorite AT&T prepaid carrier, Boost Mobile, for some cheaper cell phone plans that also operate on AT&T's network.

  • Pay online
  • Pay by phone
  • Pay by mail
  • Pay in store
  • Set up autopay

Paying with the myAT&T app

If you’re looking for the quickest and easiest way to pay your AT&T bill, then the myAT&T app is your best bet.

Just download the app on your phone (if you need an upgrade before you download a new app, check out these deals) and follow these simple steps:

  1. Sign in (or sign up) to the app.
  2. Select My Bill.
  3. Click on Make a payment.
  4. Input the amount of your bill you’d like to pay.
  5. Choose your payment method and enter the details.
  6. Select Continue.
  7. Review and confirm your payment.

That’s it! You’re done. At least until next month …

Looking for a cheaper plan?

Get AT&T's network for half the price

Mobile users can get the same exact coverage for a lot less with an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator). MVNOs are smaller, prepaid mobile carriers that rent existing cell phone towers. Without the cost of maintaining cell towers, MVNOs can keep the savings going for their consumers through more competitive discounts and pricing. They save, you save.

Trying to downsize from an expensive AT&T plan? Check out Boost Mobile instead. You get unlimited talk, text, and data (with 30GB of high-speed data) plus 12GB of hotspot data on the nation's most reliable network for as low as $25/month.

Paying on AT&T’s website

If you don’t have access to the myAT&T app for whatever reason, you can use the company’s website to make a payment. Well, actually, there are two websites you can use. One site is for payment with a myAT&T account, and the other is for making a payment without signing in.

Pay on the web using a myAT&T account

First thing is first: you’ll need to sign in or register a myAT&T account.

Once you’re signed in to your myAT&T account, follow these steps to pay your bill online:

  1. Go to Make a payment.
  2. Choose the bill you want to pay (if you have more than one).
  3. Make sure the payment amount is correct (click on Split this payment if you need to use multiple payment methods or pay just part of your bill now).
  4. Follow the prompts to send in your payment.

Pay on the web without a myAT&T account

If you want to pay your AT&T bill using your internet browser, you’ll have to use a totally different webpage.

Once you’re on the site, just follow these steps:

  1. Enter your AT&T phone number or account number (or select pay a closed account if your account isn’t active).
  2. Enter your billing zip code.
  3. Click Continue.
  4. Enter your payment amount.
  5. Select your payment method and enter the required information.
  6. Review the details and select Send Payment.

Good work: you’ve paid your bill! At least, your phone bill. Your AT&T home internet bill is another story.

Paying by phone

You can call AT&T to pay your bill by following these steps:

  1. Dial *PAY on your AT&T phone (Spanish speakers should dial *PAGAR).
  2. Press 1 to pay with your bank account or press 2 to pay with your card.
  3. Follow the automated prompts to enter the required information.
  4. You will get a confirmation number once the payment has been made.

You can also pay your AT&T bill through text message by signing up for TXT-2-PAY. Once you’re signed up for this service, AT&T will send you a text message six days before your payment is due. You can simply reply to the message to make your payment using the method you’ve set up.

Paying through the mail

Here’s the real retro payment method for all you hipsters: just get yourself a personal check, an envelope, and a stamp.

You can pay your AT&T phone bill by snail mail like this:

  1. Address a personal check for your bill amount to AT&T.
  2. Send the payment to the nearest AT&T location that accepts payments (which you can find using this AT&T webpage).

Now you can sit back, relax, and let the USPS do its job. Keep in mind it can take up to 10 days for the payment to be received.

Paying at an AT&T store

Of course, you can always go into your local AT&T retail location to pay your bill. Some retail locations have an AT&T Pay Station that allows cash, check, debit, or credit card payments.

While you’re paying your bill in person, you can ask questions about your account and maybe upgrade to an unlimited data plan.

Paying with autopay

If you’re sick of manually paying your AT&T bill every month, then maybe it’s time to enroll in AutoPay. Then you can just sit back and let your bill pay itself (… using your bank account).

Now that you know, here are your next steps.
