Frustrations with no show repairman!

Message 1 of 3
Contacted verizon Thursday afternoon,6/27, to report no dial tone on home phone & no DSL Internet. Repair visit was scheduled for Friday between 4-7pm. This was confirmed by email & I spoke to a rep as well. I sat home waiting for repairman. No one showed & when I contacted support I was told my issue was resolved. Resolved? Phone/Internet still doesn't work. They promised to send repairman Saturday between 1-5. Guess what- I sat home AGAIN & no one came. I received text around 2:15 that said he'd been dispatched to my location. Don't know where he was but it wasn't here. Then around 6 I received text that my issue had been resolved. Still no service. After repeated calls I was first told that they had no record of my repair request but could send someone on July 5th. That is 6 days away. Are they serious? Then they told me the repairman had been here & replaced a wire. I asked repeatedly to speak to a supervisor. None available. So left my cell # & they assured me someone would call in an hour. That was 4 hours ago. So now what?? Still no phone/Internet. Shouldn't a repairman try calling my phone to see if I answer before he decides the issue is resolved? They told me I had to be home but yet no one came down my road at all. How do I get someone to actually show up? What do I do next? I guess I'll have to cancel & go with another provider.
