Summary: 'Like many other consumers, I own a cell phone and have been using a wireless service provider for many years.'by dlstewart Jan 10 '12
Pros: polite, other ways to handle problems rather than speaking with someone
Cons: not all Verizon customer service reps are equal in knowledge
Summary: I have been a Verizon customer for over ten years. During that time I have had to speak with Verizon customer service. It’s a mixed experience depending upon who you speak with.
TyrisFlare "I live in an area that doesn't have too many choices for wireless providers (if I want reception, that is). It's either Verizon, AT&T or some type of pay-as-you-go plan from Walmart. After having AT&T internet for less than a month and being ignored by customer service and then having my credit tarnished by them after I refused to pay for an item I never received, I knew there was no way I was going to go with AT&T.
As for Verizon, I've had some problems with them, but I've NEVER been ignored by customer service. Once a rep even called me on the phone after answering my email just to make sure I was satisfied. It's impossible for any company this size to get it right all the time, but at least they try. When it was leaked online that they were going to start charging customers a fee to pay their bills I was outraged, like many others, and I complained to customer service. They changed the policy in 2 days. It took Bank of America a month to come to their senses after they said they were going to charge customers a fee to access their own money. Even though I'm sure Verizon was flooded with emails, a rep still answered mine in a business day.
