Return of CableCARD, how long before removed from my equipment?

Message 1 of 5

I recently got rid of my Tivo and decided to go with a standard Fios DVR box. I did the standard online return/order new equipment thing. The box arrived, works great, but there was no return box for the CableCard. So I did an online chat, got a prepaid label, packaged the card up with a letter with my name, account number, etc on it. I sent it off and it was received and signed for by Taylor a couple days ago.

 

The CableCard is still showing up in my account for a monthly charge of $4.99. I realize it will probably take a few days to process, but does anyone know approximately how long that might take?

Can anyone give me an idea on this? I contacted a representative via chat and all they could tell me is that Verizon will send me an email when the equipment is received. It's been a week and I still have it on my account.

Some people have reported that it can take over a month even after they show proof it was returned.

Hopefully you kept the shipping info to prove that it was returned.

Holy crap, I'm extremely frustrated.

 

it has been well over a month now. I have chatted with 3 different people, all of them said they removed the CableCARD from my account. One issued me a credit for the current month, the last told me that yes, it was received (I provided tracking info, etc) and said it was removed. It still shows up on my equipment on the website. How hard is this?

 

For some reason, I also got a cryptic letter in the mail from Verizon saying that the service I tried to install was not accessible with my account. I didn't install any services - likely, one of the reps tried to do something to remove the returned CableCARD from my account.

 

This is ridiculous.
