Hi All-


Verizon is offering credit to all those who lost services due to Hurricane Sandy as well as waiving fees associated with equipment replacements. In order to get credited, you must report an issue. If you haven't done so yet, you can do so by going to Verizon.com/repair and following the proper steps there.


In addition, Verizon Wireless will be crediting customers for voice and text overages for customers in New York and New Jersey counties affected by Hurricane Sandy. For additional information regarding wireless credits, please see http://t.co/yexyu10T


I hope that helps!

I'm trying to figure this out and I was unfortunatly unable to access that link you had sent me before with the troubleshooting ticket.


Are you saying that VErizon will NOW be crediting customers for DAYS they were WITHOUT power, presumably knowing that we would not know if there was any outage on Fios service if power was not on?


I will try once again to receive credit.


Thank you for your help.

Hi - I tried several times to enter an online repair ticket for my FIOS outage but the online system ends up giving me just a phone number where nobody picks up. Any advice on how to get my outage logged (and repaired), and the Credit for Loss of Service due to Sandy? Thanks

Hi All-


I'm sorry you're having troubles with the online form. I've talked to our support team and they said there aren't have been any issues with the site.  I hate to ask this, but could you try the link again: http://www.verizon.com/repair


If you're still having problems, please let me know.


casadelrob4- yes, that is my understanding- you should still be able receive a credit.

Hi Heather-


I had trouble submitting my outage online, but believe it did finally go through.


We were without Fios because of a power outage for six days. When our power was restored we continued to be without fios for an additional four days.  I reported the fios outage after our power was restored.  Is there something I need to do to get to credit for the full amount of time (including when we were without power)?  I just want to make sure we are getting the full credit amount we are entitled to.  


I am grateful for all the linemen/women and customer support people who have been helping everyone in the tri-state area.  I am lucky to have had minimal damage to my home and realize how hard those around me are working to bring everyone back to 100%. You are greatly appreciated!
