It depends on the task at hand. For repairs or troubles I often times will use the call centers or other means of communicating to perform a task. Otherwise, actions such as monifying account settings I tend to do online. More convenient that way.

Hi and thanks for the reply back.   Have you checked out our new eSupport tools on www.verizon.com/support we have introduced a new set of trouble shooting tools that are similar to those available to our representatives.

 

Also if you haven't already checked out In Home Agent you may want to

Examples of the solutions supported through In Home Agent include:
• FiOS TV
o Program remote

I pretty much feel the same way. I will add that in general I have been pretty satisfied with my calls to the call centers, but if you read the Forums here and visit other forums you find lots of people complaining about the lack of knowledge and willingness to help by the call takers. I have only experienced that once with Verizon, I made sure to wait a while and called back and register a complaint. Having worked in a call center environment as a part of my job for 10+ years back a long time ago, I know how difficult that job is, and how high the turnover can be. But it does appear that Verizon needs to take some steps to improve the support available from the call centers.

Thanks once again appreciate your input.   We strive to provide the best service possible and so while we continue to improve and expand our self service tools we are also making major investments in our call center tools, call routing, people and training.  We certainly have opportunities to improve and are working to make our service better every day.  You should know that there are many folks working hard to ensure that we deliver services that are as good as our networks.
