I just got off the phone with Verizon customer service. I was informed that Verizon's main goal is to obtain new customer rather then please existing customers. Can someone please explain this to me because Verizon is about to loose some major business.
Why do I keep getting the fliers and emails for the 79.99 bundle deal but because I am an existing customer, I can't receive it then?
I agree with you. I just got off the online chat with Verizon customer service, and I am very displeased. Verizon used to have a no-worries guarantee--no wonder they scrapped it. My biggest complaints are with the awful new contract I was offered. In order to lower my bill, I am forced to accept television service with most of my favorite channels missing, internet service with speeds so low that my computers may as well be paperweights, and (worst of all) the new FiOS Digital Voice Telephone system which DOES NOT INCLUDE GUARANTEED ACCESS TO LOCAL 911 EMERGENCY DISPATCH. Just imagine that your home is on fire and you call 911 hoping that the firefighters will show up soon. Well, under the new system you are connected to a Verizon operator who not only does not know where you are calling from, but who is also under no obligation to get you any form of immediate help at all. Just imagine the horror of knowing that your child or elderly parent is trapped in your burning home, and that help may not arrive in time to save them. Furthermore, you also must sign an agreement that you will not sue Verizon for their failure to get help in time. What an abject disaster. I was just informed that, as an old customer, I have no choice but to accept this "new system" or leave. I was actually TOLD TO LEAVE and given the disconnect telephone number, and I have the chat logs to prove it. Sad.
koolwoman88- I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations! If you're close to your renewal date, please feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to have one of our agents look into your account to see what offers may be available to you.
brensgrrl- I'm sorry you had such a bad experience talking to one of our reps- sounds like they weren't as helpful as we like to hear about! I'd also be happy to have one of our agents look into your account to see what your eligible for!
I would, however, like to clear up your comments about 9-1-1 as what you were told is false. FiOS Digital Voice does have Enhanced 911 that passes the coordinates of your location to the local Public Safety Access Point center located in the customer's county/city, NOT to a Verizon operator. Hope that helps to put your mind at ease.

I have experienced this same thing with a variety of different of service providers.
Feel this policy practice falls under the "obtain more customers rather than please existing customers"
catagory. NOT A CUSTOMER FRIENDLY PRACTICE!!!
