Subject: RE: Verizon Technician Arrival Notification I was having issues with my Verizon box which started several weeks ago when I got a message: “Replace Bottom Battery “. I was told that I need a technician to come to inspect the Verizon Box. I said I don’t think I had to take a day off for the technician when all I needed was a replacement battery. I gave them the specification of the lower battery is PX12072 12V 7.2Ah. The top battery is GT12080-HG 12V 8Ah. They replaced the battery but it’s for the top one. So they shipped another battery which I also paid but it’s for the top one again. This time the Verizon technician on the phone advised me that my Verizon box is old and that’s the reason why there’s a confusion with the batteries. The new model has only one battery. With that advice I see no reason not to go along with the advice that a technician should come in and replace the Verizon box. When the technician arrived today. He advised that my Verizon box is the current model and therefore there’s no reason to replace it and there’s nothing wrong with the existing one. I’m an independent consultant so if I am not in the office I don’t’ get paid. That’s what happened today. Additionally, I was advised over the phone that the technician will pick up my two batteries that I purchased and I will get a refund. The technician who went to our house said that he can take the battery but to get a refund I need to get a return label and then ship it. In a nutshell I spent a lot of time speaking with Verizon phone technician with no result, paid for two batteries that I don’t need and I also don’t know how to return to get a refund, and took a day off without pay in order for my old Verizon box to be replaced with a new version but with the ultimate result that I don’t need to have it replaced since the one I have is the most current one. In other words, the advice that I got saying that the new model has only one battery is incorrect. Please advise how the above issues can be resolved.

You are talking to other customers here. NOT sure what box you are referring to that has two batteries that might need to be replaced.
