Let's be clear, you're lying on your webpage. Right here: https://www.verizon.com/home/cancel-fios.html

At the bottom it clearly says 'Cancel Online'. And this page is referred to by other links when seraching for how to cancel online. BUT, you won't actually let me cancel online. I can do everything else including entering a new contract, but can;t cancel unless fo some reason I call a phone number. 

Your chat teams are completely neutered and useless, talking in circles and claiming they have no outbound phone lines. what happens if there is an emergency at the call center, no 911 access allowed? That's probably a legal violation, or more likely an outright falsehood.

So Verzion, I don;t have access to a phone, and I CANNOT call your cancelation team, which is purely a policy decision clearly meant to strongarm people into renewing services. But i am not going to renew my service, I need to cancel. 


Get someone with one wit of sense and authority to get this done. You make your representatives, and by extension your company, look stupid and weak; frankly it is insulting and disingenuous that everything else can be done online other than cancellations.
