Trade in not received by Verizon

Member

I purchased a new phone with the expectation that I would receive money back for my trade in. I sent my old device exactly as instructed back to Verizon. I have not been notified that it was picked up or that Verizon has received it. I have been notified that Verizon does not have it. I think it is lost/stoled in transit.

I can not get a human to help me with this. The chats take forever for anyone to answer. I was directed to a special phone number that gave me useless options and then hung up on me. I called the regular Verizon number - useless again. 

Why aren't Verizon agents working from home? I have one agent on chat but it has taken 30 minutes and I have not gotten anywhere. He must be helping multiple people as there are long stretches between responses.

 

This is not acceptable.

I have a record of my previous texts with Verizon if that is helpful.

We definitely want to get help get to the bottom of this confusing situation, wsrocksit. We've sent a Private Note so we can best address your concerns. Please respond to that Private Note rather than posting information publicly.

I have tried to access the private note with the link sent through email but it doesn’t work. Safari quit because there were “too many redirects”

I have looked everywhere in my account and can not find the “private” conversation about their issue.

I am again writing another private note about the same issue. I sent this trade in in a month ago as directed. I do not have a tracking number. I have a submission number. I am expecting $165 in trade in.

Hi wsrocksit

 

You can find the Private Messenger by scrolling to the top of any page on the community and clicking on the icon that looks like an envelope.

 

Alternatively this link will also take you there: https://community.verizonwireless.com/t5/notes/privatenotespage
