Problems with customer service regarding fees and credits

Thought I would post to board to verify if someone ever had a similar experience.


I started with verizon's lowest HSP plan at 24.99. I was getting speeds of .25 to .50. It became unbearable so I decided to cancel my plan after about 6 months and try comcast. I called comcast and was told the install fee would be 99 dollars. I called Verizon and told them I would like to stay with them and upgrade to their highest plan. I was told once you cancel you have to wait until you are disconnected and then apply for a whole new account.


I called {edited for privacy} in their Scranton office after my plan was cancelled and she indicated that the fee would be waived. Several days later my service was started but I was not able to connect. Verizon sent out a tech about a week later and he indicated that their was a problem on the line with a loose cable. The tech who came to my home was great, I'm getting 8mps plus!


I called on 11/4/11 to remind verizon that the activation fee should be waived and that the service start date needed to be adjusted to when I actually started receiving service. I actually did this every time prior to verizon's decision to send a tech to my home. I always cancelled about 40 dollars worth of services that were bundled with plan.


Of coarse, I receive my billed and nothing was fixed. I call customer service on 11/14/11 to kindly ask for a credit and the agent stated that she found it "unfathomable" that my service just stopped working after I cancelled suggesting that I was trying to scam 7 days of service. In reference to getting a credit for "service and activation" she wanted to know the details of my old account just to make sure I had paid the installation fee on my old account and didn't have a balance.


If anybody works for verizon and cares about customer service feel free to message me so you can review our conversation. It was utterly frustating.
