Let me share my experience with attempting to renew my FIOS services.
I started by trying to compare bundle deals on the Verizon website. I also contacted a chat agent to see what the best deal they could get me. While I was comparing prices on the clunky Verizon website, somehow I placed an order for services I don't even need or want. So I said "no problem", I will cancel the order. I looked around on my Verizon account website and found no evidence of any orders placed. I asked the chat agent on how to cancel and they stated that I need to call Verizon customer support. I was on the phone with customer support (supervisors, managers, etc.) for over an hour and I received this answer from Verizon customer support - "Your order already processed and there is no way we can cancel or change the order". I am now stuck with an expensive 2 year plan with services I do not need or want.
Next I asked myself this question - "How can a 200 billion dollar company have an order processing system that has no features to cancel or change an order"? The only answer I could come up with is "Verizon customer service lied to me".
My next stop is the BBB website.
I beleive you can drop all extra services (internet options for example).
And unless you added TV service that you don't want, you can also make changes to TV service including taking it down to local service only.
Another example of issues with the Verizon website...I clicked on the link to this message in the email and the Verizon website started flashing indefinitely....had to restart the page.
Thanks for your reply, but that's not the answer I was given by Verizon customer service. Because I renewed a bundle deal, all the discounts were applied with the services in the bundle for 2 years! I am stuck with this package for 2 years unless I cancel and then get charged $230. I am looking at "cutting the cord" completely. There are a lot of options. Just need to find one that is cost effective.
