Repost - Letter to the CEO - RUDE customer service.

Sadly, my user ID and last post seemed to disappear from the forums, so here's a repost.  NOTE:  that means any/all messages sent to me also "disappeared".  Maybe because I accused them of "bait & switch"?

Mr. McAdam,

I wanted to share my experience with you as I think some of your customer service representatives need more training.  This happened today between 14:00 EST and 14:30 EST on 05/2/2018.  My goal was to change my home phone number or get rid of the home phone service altogether.

Leslie via chat informed me it costs $22 to change my phone number, but if I cancelled my phone service I would actually SAVE $30 per month as I'm currently not getting a discount on my phone service.  She gave me the number to call to make these changes on my account [removed].

I then spoke with Nancy on the phone.  She informed me that the information supplied by Leslie was not correct and that I would pay more money if I changed my services.  Her only defense was to say that "what Leslie told you was incorrect".  I told her that this situation seemed awful similar to bait & switch used in the retail world.  She made it clear that she couldn't help me so I requested a supervisor.

Off to chat with Kimberly MXX.  She was unbelievably rude and sarcastic.  I have never, ever in my 48 years of life been treated so rudely by a "customer service" representative.  I must say that I had to fight to keep from cursing at her.  She's a huge ball of negative energy.

My point;  I don't want home phone service anymore.  I refuse to pay $22 to have the number changed when I don't want the service at all.  I made it clear when I signed up that I didn't want a home phone.  I was going to use the $30 monthly savings to add channels to my current line-up.  Ms. Kimberly [removed] is a rotten excuse for a human being.

You could have changed your phone number from your MyVerizon account online for FREE. The is only a charge if you interact with Customer Support to change it.

If you want to cancel the line, then you would have to call customer service at 1-800-922-0204 or visit a corporate store. You can't cancel services online.

As information and education to others reading this thread:

If you didn't want home phone services to begin with, why did you sign an agreement for the service? You can say no you know. I don't see why an agent should take a hit for a disconnect over service that wasn't needed.

As far as charges, it's $15 to change a number and $7 for an agent assist fee. This puts you at $22 or you could do things from My Verizon to avoid these type of fees.
