I have been unable to activate Verizon Call Assistant.

 

When I click the "sign up" link, it tells me that I already have VCA.  When I click the "activate" link, however, it tells me I don't have VCA.

 

I called customer service, waited on hold for 30 minutes, and then was transferred to another number  - 888-483-5156.  I then was on hold more than _3 hours_ before losing my connection.

 

Would appreciate it very much if a VZ employee on the forums can help.

 

Thank you.

That is the correct number for the Verizon Call Assistant support. You might have tried reaching them outside their hours of operation.   Monday-Friday 10:00am-09:00pm/EST .

I also submitted a "help" request by e-mail and received the following non-sequitur response from Verizon:

I am sorry for the delay in my response and apologize if this has caused

I have viewed your account and have added the service for you.

After reviewing your account, I see that you have our Verizon Digital

messages or caller information in your Phone Book, each time you
log on, it’s automatically refreshed so you get the most updated
information available about your account.
PC System Requirements:
• Operating System – Microsoft® Windows® 2000/2003, XP, Vista;
MAC System: MAC OS X, Version 10.5.2
• Browser – Internet Explorer® 6.0 or above, Firefox 3.0 or Safari
3.1 or above

Contrary to the e-mail, VCA still has _not_ been added and I do _not_ have FiOS digital voice...

I have this same issue.  I tracked down the problem to the type of voicemail configured on my Verizon line.  There are two types of VM service and the one I had was incompatible.  Verizon can either switch VM or disable VM to correct the issue.

 

They will tell you that he problem will clear up in a few days, but that isn't true.  Talk to tech support after two days and get them manually process your VCA request.

 

It is a pain, but this seemed to work for me.
