Verizon Wireless Complaint - Service Contract Rip-Offs

Review by lillyjo on 2011-06-17
PUEBLO, COLORADO -- I had my mobile phone service turned off at Verizon because I was moving out of their service area. I explained this to the representative, I said I would pay the last month bill if any. I was informed that I had a 2 year contract which was not until September and I would be billed $200.00 on top of the last month bill. I asked how the company can justify billing me $200.00 because I have no choice in the matter if there is no service in the area I am moving to. I was told this can not be helped, cause I signed a contract.

My advice use a cell phone company with no contacts or you may end up paying for service that you don't have and can't get. I have registered a complaint with the FCC.

Verizon is the worst company for customer service besides Time Warner Cable.

Contract-based phones are indeed rip offs with their hidden fees, assortments of fees, and sneaky tactics. Come over to prepaid phones such as Boost or Virgin Mobile! You'll feel a richer person with low monthly plans!

A fam member of mine got the LG octane phone from Verizon and she loves it.

You have to have a contract to have an iPhone so ya know what choice do I have? I'd give away little Joe Cartwright to keep my iPhone. And that's how they rope you in.

You're lucky man MRM never to have known the pleasure of an iPhone.

If iPhones ever do come to Boost or Virgin Mobile I'll get one. In the meantime, these Android phones will suffice.
