Verizon Bundle Deals
Posted by on
We quit phone service with Verizon July 4th, called and cancelled direct TV portion on the 14th because they said I had to do it separate. Their bundle billing department took 140.00 out of my bank account without authorization on August 5, have been fighting to try to get it back plus they had already told me I was overpaid with direct TV, come to find out direct TV sent 110 dollars back to Verizon after I cancelled, they applied it to a next month bill that I should not have been billed for from them and kept it then still took out 140 and are now trying to take another 110, I never signed up for auto pay, but did use my debit card for oe time pay when paying each bill. Now they are trying to tell me I owe 85 dollars more to them...what a screwed up billing system. This will take forever to get straight now...

ugh I feel for you! These companies act like they have free access to your accounts when you give them your info. Even just once. Companies nowadays have almost complete power when it comes to people's debit cards its not even funny! Its like "haha we got your money and we're not giving it back!" The Banks and the government need to set up new rules and policies against companies and accessability to customer's debit accounts. you have almost ZERO protection when companies take your money from your debit. I very rarely EVER give my debit card to ANY company.

Deceptive ads, uncoordinated mess
Posted by on
BETHESDA, MARYLAND -- Completely uncoordinated company.
Porting my phone number took 3 weeks and resulted in loss in business. Prior provider Starpower was not contacted by Verizon during these 3 weeks. It took many calls (hours) to customer service and giving my authorization a few times to have my number back. Technician who eventually came (the customer service representative last contacted told me it had to be a problem inside my house) said that it should have been resolved long ago by a simple phone call.
Pricing: My bill is much higher than the ads in press and mail and higher than the print out by salesperson to estimate what it would be. It does not reflect discounts advertised and promised yet later by representatives to "compensate" me.
Employee at billing and his supervisor basically said that I just had to pay my bill.

Complain of Verizon customer Service
Posted by on
HILLSBOROUGH, NEW JERSEY -- I order Verizon bundle (TV, Internet, Phone) for 99.99 with rebate of Laptop. The TV and Phone connect in next few days but internet is intentionally about one month later. After many times of calling to complain about internet, customer service modified my initial order and later (after 2 months of service) I figured out the new order dropped my give-away laptop. I feel Verizon is cheating on customers to not provide all services at the same time and all reps always want to sign you with new order to get their credit of sales. Every time you called to complain the service, you expect to spend 2 - 3 hours. They switch you many different reps and nobody could explain their bill. Yes, they have technology to make the noise on voice transmission when I was on hold waiting for the reps come over for help when I was on the phone too long (3 hours) with customer service. I am thinking to cut service and do business with another company even I have to pay the fine.

Lesson: You need to ask in writing the service you ordered to save your time.

Scammed By Verizon
Posted by on
NEW JERSEY -- The triple play package that Verizon offers is a rip off they tell you its a certain price but when the bill comes its double the amount not to mention you get your TV through Direct TV an what they also fail to mention is that if you decide to cancel their crappy service you have to pay a cancellation fee from Verizon of $150.

But here's the kicker you also have to pay a cancellation fee from Direct TV of 20 dollars a day for whatever is left on the contract with Verizon and since we only had the service for 2 months it is $400.00 to cancel.

Cost Me Tens Of Thousands Extra - Seriously
Posted by on
BERMUDA DUNES, CALIFORNIA -- We moved from CA to NJ. We had FiOS in both states.

Verizon CA failed to deliver our last bill (or it arrived after we moved and mysteriously wasn't forwarded with the rest of our mail).

We are now applying for a home loan. The bank tells us my wife's credit score is low because of this manufactured late payment report arising from Verizon CA.

The bank has raised our interest rate, on a 30-year fixed loan, by half a percentage point in reliance on credit scores from three agencies, all showing this alleged late payment to Verizon.

Verizon CA told me over the phone that the situation will last for seven years. They freely admit the account was paid in full.

Yes, this is happening to us so I am biased. But please notice that this particular Verizon service failure is of the size and scale that can do serious harm to the economy (we may not buy now).

If you're thinking of making any lifetime investments or that your credit score is safe, stay far, far away from Verizon. We are proof.

Automatic Bill Pay is what I used to pay my bills. Companies will vary as to payment coming out of your checking account or on a credit card. No Late Payments Ever!! You might want to give it a try. I get my statements as ususal (so I can check them0 but payments are deducted automatically.
Soaring Consumer on 2009-03-30:
So the account was paid in full when you left California and yet they put derogatory, false information on your credit report?

Dispute it with the credit bureaus and contact the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division.

Triple Freedom is Really a Triple Scam
Posted by on
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- Dear Fellow Citizens:

I ordered Triple Freedom for an advertised price of $99.99 and it was advertised to come in one convenient bill.

I just received the phone portion of the bill, and there is nothing about the TV or internet portion of the bill. So I called and my first month's bill for everything is $227.00. The customer service representative that I was able to talk to after waiting on an automated phone for an hour informed me that the extra $127.00 was for taxes and surcharges.

So in the end, please understand if you get triple freedom, it will be expensive and you will not have it in one bill, plus Verizon will over charge you.

Think twice about triple freedom.

MJS, I feel your pain. I purchased a Verizon Telephone/Internet/TV bundle as well. It took Verizon about two months (2 billing cycles) to even list the Internet service and charges on the phone bill, so I was hit with 2 months worth (service plus equipment) all at once. Ouch! And all of those taxes, additional fees and surcharges are beyond excessive nowadays. Also, Verizon boasts that all of the bundled services will be included on one convenient bill. They are not. I received a separate bill from DirecTV a month before I ever received the first bill from Verizon. Verizon told me to ignore the bill from DirecTV and that it may take a month or so for the TV charges to appear on my Verizon bill. But DirecTV told me that they no longer bill through Verizon and that I should pay the bill to avoid service interruption and late fees. It is a good thing that I did pay DirecTV directly, and continue to do so, because Verizon has NEVER included the TV service on my bill, nor did they ever inform me that their TV billing arrangement had changed. Whew! Dodged that bullet. MJS, $127 worth of taxes and surcharges does not sound right at all. That’s absurd! If I were you, I would investigate that issue further. If Verizon fails to correct it, you can complain to the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov. Just a suggestion.

Verizon Bundles Are Great
Posted by on
SCRANTON, PENNSYLVANIA -- Verizon is an absolutely amazing company! My family and I have had them for years and the prices are very competitive. I read all of these reviews about people not being happy with their services, however I have had the Triple Bundle with phone, internet, and Direct TV for about 3 years now and have not had a problem with anything! My first bill that I ever got from them was kind of high, however, the representative did tell me it would be that way because of my bill date or something. The following month was exactly what they told me $99 plus tax and for the next couple of years it was the same way. While my neighbors with Comcast were experiencing ridiculous increases in their Triple Bundles, I was enjoying the $99 dollar price with Verizon.

Their employees are committed to letting us know the latest promotions. The people that are complaining are just not asking enough questions or listening. Maybe if they would take the time to listen, they would understand and be happy.

Absolutely their bundles can be a great value. But wait until you have to 'sign' a new contract or they make a billing change without telling you. In case you are unaware your contract with Verizon is not connected to any contract with Direct TV.

Verizon Bundle Deal Scam
Posted by on
CONVOY, OHIO -- Verizon bundles is one hell of a scam. We made our first mistake by ordering the bundled deal on line. Even though we were accepted and approved for the triple deal of phone service, high speed internet and direct TV for the price of $117.00 A month, once the phone was connected we were told, we could not get high speed internet. After many calls to Verizon and to direct TV, we are still waiting, after two months, for the phone and the direct TV to be bundled. After all the extra fees, we are paying a ridiculus price for both the phone and TV. This is an outright scam. Once you agree to a bundled price, Verizon totally ignores the deal and charges you what ever they want. Direct TV does too, our one year agreement has now become a two year agreement. I hold both companies responsible, but feel that Verizon is the one offering the bundle and should hold up their end of the deal.

If we are not bundled by the next month, I will consider the contract void and look for another phone company even if I must go cellular. I will also contact the attorney generals' office.

This is a scam. I got the promotion flyer for the bundle pack with 250 dollar Visa gift card. I ordered it and the customer service lady offers extra 100 gift card for self installation. Well...done all that and 4 months later I did not receive any gift card. I called today and they said that I don't have any gift card on my profile. Sucks!!! this is a big scam....

Verizon Is The Worst Thing To Ever Happen To Me
Posted by on
My husband I I bought our first house, and we had Comcast, which was not bad. However, I saw a commercial saying Verizon would give me a free TV if I switched. I switched, THEN they told me I "didn't qualify" for the TV b/c of our location (outskirts of DC), so they offered me a camcorder instead, so I was like "fine, I'll take it". After NUMEROUS other mishaps (no one ever showing up to turn on our phone, charging us extra fees, etc.) they took $10 off a month for all the trouble. When I called to see where the hell my camcorder was (13 calls, no joke) they told me that no two offers could be combined (apparently, when I accepted my 10/month off my bill, I was "disqualified" from getting my camcorder). That is not the worst of it. EVERY time I call there, they lie to me, switch me around to different departments and nothing EVER gets done the first time. EVER. Once I took off a day of work to meet the Verizon guy, and he never showed up, never called to say he wasn't coming. When I called the local office, I was told that "they don't have to tell me when they are cancelling an appointment".

I HATE VERIZON - switching to them is the worst mistake I have ever made. they are INFURIATING and they definitely take advantage of their customers. I would recommend no one use Verizon unless they are looking to up their blood pressure.

Total Incompetence
Posted by on
LAUREL, MARYLAND -- I have been with Verizon for a total of 4 whole months and I am now getting rid of them. They have been nothing but a problem from day one. I am not the type to complain at the drop of a hat, actually I have never sent or written a complaint in my 46 years, but this is just unbelievable.

They over billed me from day one and never got the right amount. They double billed me one month and swore that was correct. They charged me a fee for a phone I never owned and ended up sending it to a collection agency. Their phone system was designed by a sadist. it's one of those where a nice computer voice comes on and asks dozens of questions many repeats and never does manage to get you to the correct place. The customer service people are polite and friendly and promise the moon but never deliver.

I have never in all my years had to deal with a company that has such horrendous customer service.

Verizon's billing system has got to be the most poor written software in the world. Pulling teeth is much easier than getting Verizon to correct a bill the first time.
