I got verizon fios in May 2014 and paid a refundable deposit of about $125 (don't remember the exact amount). I have paid on time and full every single month (every single month!). Today I called verizon (multiple times!) to cancel my connection but nobody seems to help me out with my security deposit. I was transferred from the billing department to finance department to collections and back to billing. I was on call with them for over 3 hours! Wanted to speak with a supervisor but that agent just did not let me. Asked him multiple times. I was told a supervisor will call me back. Hours later somebody did but when I answered the call, nobody spoke!
Is there any way I can get my deposit back? Somebody please help me out. I'm really frustrated.
If so, it will be May before you can cancel without a penalty.
And once you do cancel, they will either credit your account for your final bill or should refund at that time.

Hi. Thank you for the quick response. Appreciate it!. No, I did not sign any contract. I requested them (today) to terminate my connection on 02/29/2016 as I am moving to a new place. Just having a really really hard time getting my deposit back.
