home phone and dsl

I lost service on 6/18 and it's 10/22 and it's still not working. Countless restore dates that never came to fruition. No help from Customer Service. Still being charged for no service. No communications, lies and more lies about service being restored. No accountability, no over to not charge me... NOTHING. just no service for 5 months. Unacceptable and outrageous that Verizon gets away with this. No call back NOTHING!

I want my service back or I want them to be honest and tell me they are never going to restore my service. HORRIBLE how the get away with abusing their long standing loyal customers

electric scam

This Verizon number with NYC area code called to tell me my electric was about to be disconnected. I knew it was a scam so I pressed 1 to speak w REP. He answered "disconnection department." When I asked what company this is, he hung up. They are located in Hawaii! Verizon needs to disconnect customers like this who hope to scam senior citizens and vulnerable people!!

I was with Verizon for so many years then due to thier billing rip off and extermly bad services I switched to Sprint.
Then I called up Verizon to let them know if they could arrange a payment plan for remaining balance to be paid monthly on a certain date if a month.
At firts they agreed then I was transffered to anothet agent to finish up the arrangment. This agent compeletly unhelfull and uncooperative refused to help. Verixon is of the worst compaies I have ever worked with.

overcharge every month

Every month Verizon overcharges on our bill. Texts and screenshots mysteriously disappear from my phone of chats assuring lower rates. If you mention those you're suddenly cut off from your chat and have to start over again with a new agent. They lie and say they'll change your bill and then when it's due it's suddenly higher again. Don't go with Verizon post-pay. If that's all that's in your area go with the prepay.

customer service/gift card scam

I got a number from customer service at a fake stub hub and they stole $500. The 2 numbers they used are [protected] and [protected]. Anyone at these numbers is a criminal.
I called the 2ND number after a Google search for stub hub customer service. They gave me the first number as a direct line. They were able to see my stub hub info and said they needed to set up an e-wallet in order to give me a refund. After buying a game stop card the phone went dead and they stopped answering.

Bottom Line Up Front - Verizon made a mistake. They don't have the ethics/integrity to own up to it. Now I am left to pay for their error. A dishonest company and my worst experience with an Internet provider ever.

It's rare that I comment on my experience with a company, and when I do, it's usually to relay some positive experience I've had with them. Unfortunately, after 16 years of service with Verizon, today I had a much different experience. We had ordered a FIOS service upgrade scheduled to be completed today (29 JULY 2019). We had originally scheduled it for last Friday, but when the technician came out, he said he did not want to drill through siding because it might break, which made sense. He rescheduled us for today (29 JULY 2019) from 2 pm to 4 pm (see attached texts from Verizon.) We paid to have the siding removed this morning and my wife stayed home from work to be available in case the technician showed up early. My daughter who volunteers at the hospital where I work, agreed to stay 3 hours late and to catch a ride home with me. This was because her mother/ my wife could not leave the house to pick her up as she was waiting for the Verizon technician.

The Verizon technician never showed today. When my wife called to find out why, we were told 4 different things. First, the technician cancelled our service upgrade request because we didn't have a hub box - that apparently was not true. Second, we were told that our service upgrade request was cancelled because it was not upgradeable, again not the case. Third, we were told the technician cancelled our service upgrade request because we weren't home - this was untrue as my wife didn't leave the house all day and two cars were always in the driveway. Fourth, and just as insulting is that we were told that I had cancelled the service upgrade request on the 19th of July because I didn't want a hole in my siding - another untruth, as I had left for a military drill that day and there are no calls showing to or from Verizon from my phone (Our phones are through Verizon wireless, so I speculate that someone there could verify that if they chose to.) I did not use the word "lie" to describe the excuses given to us for no one showing up today, but in truth it felt like we were just being lied to at this point.

While on the phone with customer service trying to rectify this situation, we were told the soonest we could reschedule it would be 9 AUG 2019 and we would have to cancel our original order and order a "new package." The "new package" was quoted at a higher price than the one that Verizon said we had had cancelled. The ironic thing is my wife received texts (again - see attached) up through this week making sure that we would be here today. This kind of negates 3 out of 4 of the previously mentioned excuses/ lies for not showing up today.

My wife spoke to Verizon staff for roughly 3 and ½ hours (though she was on hold most of the time). I spoke to them only for roughly 40 minutes because I was trying to tape a tarp to the side of my house where the siding was removed to allow for the installation. This is because they are calling for rain and we had to cancel the company that was coming out to put it back up because we have to pay for them to take it off and to put it on.

The first girl in customer service I spoke to, Jill, (here was the highlight) was very friendly and tried to help us. She stated we could be scheduled for tomorrow, 30 JULY, however, in the end she could do no better than the AUG 9th date, even though it was not our fault this mistake occurred. My wife eventually got on with a supervisor who said he would get on with sales to help us get set back up and to get us scheduled for tomorrow, but as soon as we were placed with someone to replace our order that supervisor was gone without so much as a goodbye. We asked that young lady to speak with a supervisor again, she said something to the effect that a supervisor can't do anything more than she is doing, and at that point I did raise my voice that we wanted to speak to a supervisor and not to her. She placed us on hold and there we stayed until the business hours were over.

If one was to go back through the records to when we originally ordered the upgrade, we had been planning on going with a cheaper service. A good salesman at Verizon convinced us not only to stay BUT to spend more money on the upgrade! He convinced us that Verizon had the superior product and it would make sense to stay with Verizon. My take home point after today's experience is that a superior product means little without integrity and quality customer service to back it up.
While I know Verizon is a huge company and losing the business of one small family will not mean much, I still felt the need to write of our experience and to share it on the offshoot chance that someone else will read it, and find an ethical/honest company to use.

Being a military member, who respects the opinion of other military members, I searched to see what other military experiences/ratings for Verizon were. Funny enough the only high rating I found about Verizon and the military, was put out by Verizon! LOL! At least they think highly of themselves! I really needed a laugh at this point, and this fit the bill! I don't know, perhaps they do provide some benefit to the military as an organization, but they provide horrible customer service to individual soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.

Sorry this statement is so long. I wanted to warn anyone else about the "service" they would be getting before they signed up with Verizon and writing down my terrible experience with Verizon also provided some catharsis as well. In my experience Verizon could care less about the individual customer. Why not? They have millions of customers, why would they worry about one?

• Update - this morning (30 JULY 2019) we received an email from Verizon (see attached), cancelling the service last night at 6:16 pm. (The service that we had supposedly already cancelled). They are outrageous, I guess that's what happens when you have monopoly.

The texts below show the timeline for our scheduled service.

Below is the "new cancellation" of our service, that we had supposedly already cancelled (it was news to us).

home phone

Account No. [protected]-00001

I have been a customer for more than 20 years, having spent over $20, 000 at Verizon
since getting my first cell phone. Last year I added internet and home to my account in order to get all my communication devices with the same company.
The internet was extremely poor, cutting out and stopping every day. I had to go back to my former carrier. After purchasing all the necessary equipment for the home phone, I had trouble with the home phone losing calls or the caller not being able to hear. I then purchased a window antenna and that helped a bit but the home phone service was only somewhat good in the south room where the antenna was. I live in a small two bedroom home and the phone in the kitchen on the north side of the house was only usable some of the time. After checking with Verizon that I did NOT have a contract, I went back to my former carrier for the home phone and the cell phone. Now I can have a home phone in all five rooms of my home as well
as the basement as I had formerly. I am 85 years old and cannot have a phone in just one room in case I fall or have any other emergency. Since leaving Verizon, I received a bill for $188.72 and I was told I owe that because of early termination.
Now I am getting daily calls from a collection agency. I did not want to leave Verizon but I put up with the poor home phone service as long as I could. The only thing I can think of why my home gets poor reception is that there is a large electric transformer on a pole in my back yard which possibly interferes with wireless service. I would appreciate it if you would please remove the early termination fee from my account and I will pay any remaining amount.

wireless billing/ customer service

I had Verizon for a number of years. I am moving out of the country and spoke with a Verizon customer service rep. He told me they did not have service in Colombia where I am moving. I told him I was going to have to switch to a carrier that would be able to service me in Colombia. I asked him if I switched at the end of March would that be ok. He said yes that the billing cycle runs from like the 15th to the 14th. I said ok so will I get the money back for the time from the 30th of March to April 14th. He said yes I would get a credit back to my credit card for the 2 weeks I didn't use from March 30 to April 14. I received an email from Verizon today saying my account balance was zero. So I called and asked about the refund of the 2 weeks not used. I was told that the agent was mistaken and even though it switched March 30 i still had to pay till April 14. This is not right and I would like the refund I was told I would get. That is the reason I switched when I did. My cell number is [protected]. My name is
Rick Lincoln 304 S Main Street Hesston Ks 67023. Email [protected]
This truly is the only issue I have ever had with Verizon and I would like the refund.

internet connectivity

Internet went down at 8 PM on 03/25/2019. Called customer service. Representative could barely speak English and initially refused to transfer me to a supervisor. Supervisor also could not resolve the issue. Provided me a ticket number and advised problem would be fixed within 24-48 hours. Checked internet again today. Same issues. no connectivity. Rebouted router.
Spoke with customer service this evening. Same issue. We cannot help you. Checked status of my ticket request. Ticket PAHM03MEUQ. Showed status of closed. Problem not resolved.
This company is absolutely the worst in customer service. If there was any other company that offered internet in these rural areas, I would go with them.
Thinking about filing a complaint with the PA Attorney general for fraudulent practices.

fios business internet

Below is an email complaint sent to Hans Vestberg March 21, 2019 -- we seriously doubt we will hear back from him. We are at our wits end.

I'm writing to express our complete exasperation with Verizon's inability to solve (or even show a desire to solve) an ongoing issue with our FiOS Business Internet connection. For over two months we've experienced very slow throughput with certain types of Internet traffic. We are told over and over that nothing is wrong within the Verizon network despite much evidence to the contrary. The latest ticket number we have for this issue is VADQ0RHT9F.

We could more easily deal with the situation if there was any indication that Verizon actually cares about solving the problem or demonstrated any willingness to pay more than lip-service to our issue. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Verizon's strategy is to do or say whatever they need to get us off the phone.

In the past several weeks, we have repeatedly called the FiOS support line and talked with more than a dozen different people within Verizon. In two instances when we insisted that our issue be escalated, we were able to talk to two different call center "managers." In both cases neither one of them ever followed-up, took any ownership of the issue nor showed any initiative to actually solve the problem. One of them even told us "I agree there is clearly a problem here" but then did nothing to help us resolve it. I hope you can imagine how frustrating and insulting that is.

Our company provides IT support services to businesses throughout the DC metro area, and as such we deal with many different carriers for many different issues. Verizon, by far, provides the worst customer support and is the only carrier that treats its customers with such contempt.

If this issue were with any other carrier, it would have escalated to a higher-level engineering team long before now, and our interactions would be directly with the people on those more advanced teams. Instead, Verizon refuses to have any interaction with us beyond front-line support. Other carriers provide a name, telephone number and/or email address for an individual who takes ownership of the problem. Verizon gives us a ticket number and forces us to call in to the same generic support number and start from square one every single time we want an update. Other carriers use valid phone numbers and email addresses to communicate with us and give us regular updates on the status of our issue. Verizon cancels appointments and closes tickets without any notification or explanation.

I wish this were the only instance of poor customer service we receive from Verizon but it's not. In 30-plus years of providing IT support, any issue with Verizon requiring more than simple troubleshooting consistently becomes a long, drawn out ordeal and winds up being an exercise in frustration. Because of this, Verizon is NEVER a company we recommend to our clients if other options are available. In situations where Verizon is the only viable option, we always warn our customers to expect extremely poor customer service.

Assuming this communication doesn't fall on deaf ears, our hope is that someone at Verizon will take ownership of this issue and work with us to solve the problem.

Verizon Communications

the worst not reliable company I have ever dealt with.

The tech from Verizon came to hook up home phone. He have drilled a hole in my house chipped off chunk of brick outside. Now I have two holes and bricks chipped off. I file a complain with Verizon. They told me someone will contact me. The y gave me claim number. Nobody have contacted me. I called after a week to follow up. They told me they have no record of it. I have submitted another claim again. Nothing again. Someone should relay take a charge with Verizon company. They do whatever they want. Breaking all the rules and regulations. I will definitely will take them to court.
