I spoke with customer service/billing a few times in the last couple of weeks since I had upgraded to the Double Play bundle which includes phone and DSL for $44.95/month. Each time they assured me that a trouble ticket is being investigated, it has been a whole month and nothing has been changed on the billing end. My phone and DSL accounts still have not been merged, now I am being billed twice for DSL services - once for the double play (phone & DSL) and another for DSL! No one has provided a definite answer nor indicated that I will be credited when the merge completes. I might seek another provider if this is not resolved soon. Everything is fine with Verizon until you need something from them! 😞
I also believe that Verizon are outsourcing your livechat support as the service is inconsistent. I have come across some that are very throughly and a call phone is not required, however, others just ignore complex questions or just do not care about their customers. It usually a hit or miss. 😞
