This company slammed us a few years ago - we filed a complaint with the FTC. Told them to take us off their call list - now they are calling again (several times in the last month or so) saying they are with AT&T and even giving me a "AT&... Read More »

Scammers
Preferred called a small local business I work at and claimed they were a part of AT&T. For the first 3 minutes or so I thought it was AT&T calling to alert our business of a lower price change. When they told me that the bill would be a d... Read More »

SCAM
They try to make you think they are doing you a favor and that they are not selling anything. They say they are calling because they have to speak to everyone about the notice that ATT sent out regarding recent changes in their cost to save money... Read More »

Avoid them!
This company uses high-pressure sales tactics to get you to switch. They stated there is no switching, no cost only additional savings, and made it sound very much like they were a part of AT&T but then started talking about how they are Preferred... Read More »

Interesting call
Glad I found the reviews before I committed. What concerned me was the initial call created the impression that it WAS from Centurylink and that they just wanted to let me know they were lowering my bill. When I responded that I wasn't certain how... Read More »

Rip-off and very rude
I agreed to change from Century Link when the Preferred Long Distance sales lady inferred she was from Century Link and pitched a $25 per line cost. I have two lines and 20MB DSL. Since I also had DSL, that, too, was transferred to Preferred. When... Read More »

Liars, thieves
I signed up with promises from Preferred to have a lower monthly bill but it was all false. My bill is higher than AT&T and they of course put the blame on me saying that I knew what I was signing up for. They when I called to find out why my bi... Read More »
