Verizon Spends 120 Billion and sticks it to customersBy Jeff Brown, posted: Sep 13I have been with verizon for 6 years. Had issues with phones billing. All taken care of within a single phone call. Now they spend 120 Billion to get into the European Market. All the sudden they cant approve a re rate from a mistake there customer service rep made. No surprise. I was told that for 50 dollars I could get unlimited calling on all my 4 phones. I look at the bill and its 50 dollars per phone. They seem to think had I known it was per line I would have agreed to that. Crazy 500 a month for unlimited talk, text and data (for only 2 phones). I can go to Walmart right now and buy a verizon prepaid and get unlimited talk text and date for 50 a month. But under contract you dont get all that and its 65.00 per phone. I wish I had a choice. every phone company has there issues and signal isnt one of verizons which I need. Hate em

Verizon doesn't share important detailsBy Amanda Blagg, posted: Sep 13I had a good experience with Verizon for 4 years on my parents plan, so after getting married my husband and I signed a 2 year contract. My old phone was still in good condition, so I waited to take my upgrade for 8 months. When I upgraded, Verizon extended my contract for 8 months without telling me. They also started charging $30 per phone activation. Meanwhile my husband asked around about phone contracts and realized that we are paying almost as much for a dumb phone voice/texting contract as most people pay for a smart phone contract ($110/month). I called to see if there were any cheaper plans and they checked our usage and put me on a loyalty plan ($70/month). They failed to mention I would no longer have free nights and weekends. I found that out the hard way ($20 in overage charges). Needless to say, once my contract is over, I'm changing providers. Verizon never lied to me outright, but they sure omitted key pieces of information.

This company is the worst cell phone company for serviceBy George Klien, posted: Sep 13I was treated rudely by customer support. The promises and service are lies. Promised call backs for problems with billing and never called me back. Watch your bills this company adds things on your phone without any permission.

Watch Out For Surprise ChargesBy TKoerner, posted: Aug 13I have been a Verizon Wireless customer for YEARS and I pay my bill on time every month. And what thanks do I get? Surprise charges added to my bill that I must search EVERY bill for and call to have removed. Until now they've removed them, now they refuse to remove $95.94 in charges I did NOT request and can prove I did not use.

Biggest ripoff phone company everBy Joe Wilson, posted: Aug 13Once Verizon has you in their clutches they won't do anything unless you sign a new 2 year contract. I had a old style flip phone that was 5 plus years old and just wanted to get new one..Without signing another 2 year contract they wanted to charge me 200.00 for a old style flip phone..Been a customer for approx. 10 years but will drop them at end of my current contract. Worthless customer service

Roaming Charge Rip-offs Happen HereBy Ruth Williams, posted: Aug 13When we went up to Canada for several days I turned off everything on my iPhone that I thought might incur roaming charges. In a couple of days, at 10:00pm I get a text from Verizon saying I have roaming data to the tune of over $50. Of course I didn't pick up the text until later the next morning. I called in right away and was told the charges could be reversed if I paid $25 for some package! The operator said it was my fault for not 'reaching out' to them, and I turned it down! Then she talked me through the four screens necessary to turn off the roaming. (Hint: settings; then cellular. . .) When we got the phone bill I was dunned $133 in roaming charges!! I call them again, and they try to mollify me with a $25 discount. . . No, we are not happy. You'uns be careful with these guys. They're expensive!!

I loved it for 5 years, now i can't stand itBy Arianne rodriguez, posted: Aug 13When we were still happy with it, it was when they were giving us good service. However about a year ago, we decided we wanted to quit because they'd changed somethings and wouldn't give us the unlimited internet we'd had and whatnot, which you could say was partially our fault for cancelling it but when we called a week later they told us too bad, but the bill was getting to so as I said we wanted to quit. Now first they told us just wait until March for one of the phones, June for the other, and the last needed to be in 2 years because it was the newest. Now, we weren't too happy but we dealt with it, come March they said oh no, its 2014, come June, oh no its July, and now we're just fed up and happily. We told them to send it in writing. Come July, my family was spitting fire because they were trying to get us to stay and trying to feed us a bunch of B.S. I recommend to stay away from Verizon

Change contract/upgrade datesBy Carla Taylor, posted: Aug 13My daughter had her phone for over 2 years and was due for an upgrade. Unknown to me they changed their policy and all upgrade dates to mirror their contract updates. Well my pending upgrade is now changed for another 8 months. I wanted to just wait for the new phone but once I noticed this on my account, I called and the custer sevice rep was very nice and helpful. However, they do not have authority to make decisions concerning account. I am now thinking to pay out the cancellation charge, which would be cheaper than waiting another 8months for the account to renew and go to T-Mobile. They allow you to upgrade once a year with some minor stipulations. That is better than 3 1/2 years waiting for an upgrade. Which makes no sense. It does not cost Verizon anything to upgrade for the discount price. It is only a way for the phone manufacture to make more money. Verizon has become the Comcast of wireless phones.
