Getting through to a live person at Verizon on the phone

Getting through to a live person at Verizon on the phone

Message 1 of 5

I just spent 45 minutes on the phone with Verizon.  Most of the time I was on hold or being passed from one person to the next until I finally got the right person.  This is both time consuming and frustrating.  This was not the first time this has happened.  I am getting pretty annoyed and am  thinking about switching to Comcast when my 2 year commitment with Verizon FIOS is over.  Verizon needs to do a better job in responding to phone calls.  I tried the on-line chat with an agent and the info they were able to give me was useless.

I had luck calling the Customer Relations number - 800-483-7988. Good luck with your issue!

When they prompt you to press 1,2 ,etc. press 0 that will take you right to a customer service person.Pressing 0 pretty much works for any customer service you need to call.

Pressing '0' does not work; recording says operation not available.


Still no real live human being.  At least I can talk to someone at Comcast ... Geez!
