Dont Use VerizonBy anitasongbird, posted: Feb 12I hate Verizon, i just got a new computer and wanted high speed net, i went to verizon to get 4g but got that and much,much more.... The contract was for 3 years for $50 a month for 5 gigs, well i should have known something was up when i got the first bill for 5 days of service and it said i had used 2 gigs already. i payed the bill and tried to view my account online and was told i could not till i had a acess code wich only came in the mail so i sent for it. in the mean time i was using the service as usual, that next week nothing came in the mail so i called to see what was goning on to my shock i was told i had used 24 gigs that month wich was 19 gigs over my plan and was going to have to pay an extra $10 per gig..... I didnt understand this seeing as if i never downloded anything. I asked the lady to talk to someone who could tell me why it was so high, and was put on hold for an hour after the rep seen i was not hanging up she took it upon hersekf to hang up for me. I am pretty mad and will be cancelling the sevice soon.....

Just 22 days and will never use Verizon againBy Melonie Kodet, posted: Jan 12After 16 years with AT&T, I made the switch to Verizon just before Christmas. My teen fell in love with the HTC Rhyme over anything ATT offered at the time, so off we went to the Verizon store. My husband's company also offers a corporate discount, so I was told that we could get a better calling plan and double the data for the same amount that I was paying AT&T. I gave up my beloved iPhone in favor of a Droid Bionic. The first time I plugged the phone into my computer, it wouldn't charge and the battery died. Not knowing otherwise, I stopped by the Verizon store on my way home. The salesman told me that the USB cord wouldn't charge the phone unless it was plugged into a wall outlet. He kept trying to sell me a car charger for $30. I refused to buy one thinking that I would get one for Christmas. When I got home and started doing my own research, I discovered that all I needed was to download the appropriate driver (FREE!). I pretty quickly adjusted to the new phone and thought everything was fine. Until I received my first bill. The salesperson had told me that the activation fee would be waived for both phones that I purchased, and that my first bill would be pro-rated for the remainder of the month. Imagine the sticker shock when I opened a bill for $285! First, there was a $35 activation fee for one of the phones. The salesperson never bothered to tell me that the corporate discount would only apply to the voice calling portion of the bill, so my savings only turned out to be a whopping $11. She also didn't tell me that they would bill the first month's data and calling plan in advance, on top of the prorated amount. My monthly bill with AT&T was around $135 a month for 2 phones with calling, text, and data. Verizon's bill would run around $240/month - and that's with a 20% discount? I'm taking the phones back to Verizon after just 22 days and going back to AT&T. A mistake I'll never make again!

No Way To Treat A VeteranBy Ilove2review, posted: Nov 11********************THIS IS NO WAY TO TREAT A VETERAN******************** I only bring the veteran status into this because I have PTSD and do not handle stressful situations well. I have made Verizon/Altell aware of this on several occasions. I had a phone with them and asked them to suspend my service for three months, they agreed and when I went back to reactivate my account they had given the number to someone else. I asked what I needed to do to get another number and was told I had to enter into a new contract. I asked if I would owe anything on the old one and was told no. I asked if he was sure because I did not want any surprises down the road, he assured me I had nothing to worry about so I signed up for the new account. I took my new phone and went on vacation and about a week into it I get a call from them telling me I owed over $300 for an early termination fee and if it was not paid immediately they would terminate my new service. I explained to them what I was told and they cut my new service and then sent me a bill for early termination for both services. I refused and again called them to explain what had happened and they refused to do anything about it and sent it to collections and now a bad mark on my credit report. I have thought about picketing outside the store until they agree to clear this up. Very bad customer service, I would never suggest these idiots to anyone. I had always paid my bills so this was ridiculous. UPDATE: I have been on the phone trying to clear this up and keep getting the run around. I was told that Verizon and Altell are two different entities. If this was true why would Verizon still have all my information on their computers? Verizon gave me a number to an Altell office that is specifically for handling cases of removing errs from credit reports. I discussed this with the lady on the phone and she said she could not do anything about it. I asked her who could and she told me Altell but she didn't have there #, what? The first thing this lady did when I called her was to represent herself as an Altell employee. I told her I might picket the store until this was resolved. She said I had that right but it would not get me the number to Altell. My family does not want to see me picket the store so I came up with the idea of posting this on every Altell/Verizon page I can in several major cities. The store I originally signed up with is @ 5141 O Street in Lincoln, NE 68510. But the customer support numbers they give you to deal with is the same. Note To Verizon; I have lived with this on my credit report for five years and have tried to resolve this for as many years. So do not think that contacting me with empty promises only resulting in more dead ends is going to convince me to pull this post. I've dealt with this for five years, now it's your turn. I will be checking back to make sure this remains on here. God Bless and thank YOU for being a loyal pain in my ass.

APPALLING CUSTOMER SERVICE!By D M, posted: May 11The good: good networkThe bad: products pricey & lots of glitches
customer service is great as long as you are buying; dreadful if any problems encountered; managers & supervisors unaccessible; problems not understood; & no perks for being a loyal customer; arrogant & rude are their mottos Summary: They want your money but do not easily or readily help a customer when problems arise; very condescending; they would rather lose a customer than work nicely to keep them happy

Happy with Alltel; can't stand Verizon's "customer service"By Missy Lander, posted: Sep 10The good: reliable phone (Blackberry Tour); decent reception in our rural area, though not nearly as reliable as we had with AlltelThe bad: billing problems/terrible "customer service" if you can call it that...Summary: Where to begin? I've been a loyal Alltel customer for YEARS (at least 7-8)--was VERY happy with my reception/service/customer service--especially in recent years. We switched from Alltel to Verizon last September, and I was mostly pleased until my husband had trouble with his Blackberry crashing this summer due to a problem with an update he downloaded. We pay $7/mth for insurance for his phone, so the first person he talked to told him they'd send a refurbished phone to replace it, but in the meantime, he'd have no phone. He talked to someone later who helped him completely reboot his phone, and everything was restored except what he hadn't updated, so we no longer needed the refurbished phone, but they'd already sent it.
Our next bill had an "equipment charge" of $489.99 for the phone they'd sent us that we hadn't opened or used. We pay our usual $200 bill online, so we waited to pay it until we saw the credit. The bill was due on the 5th of the month, and they disconnected our phones the 13th of the month!! (We've NEVER had our phones disconnected, and both have EXCELLENT credit.) Although they'd received the phone back, they hadn't credited our account. I immediately (the same day) made a payment for the amount of the bill (minus the extra phone charge), and our service was restored, but the next month we were charged $30 for a "reconnect" fee. When I called to ask them to remove the fee, I was on the phone for 40 MINUTES, being put on hold and transferred from person to person to finally be told "no, it was a system-generated charge, and there's nothing they can do about it." WHAT?????? UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Guess they figure we're stuck in this contract for another year, so why try? Well, don't worry Verizon, WE'RE DONE.
