As with many others before me, access to MyVerizon is restricted until I gain "Full Access". I can pay bills, but that's about it. The problem is, all of the methods for gaining full access fail. I'm supposed to receive a "Temporary PIN" and then enter it. But nothing works.
Initially, my only options were to call my landline or send me the temporary PIN via postal mail. I don't know why texting my Verizon cell was not an option, as it was on file in my profile, but whatever. When I try the phone call option, I get an error message: "Unable to process request...". So I requested a temporary PIN via postal mail and waited several days. I got two mailings from Verizon. One contained my username (which I knew). The other contained my password (which I knew). Neither contained a temporary PIN.
So I tried to contact Verizon. I was eventually able to chat with someone, who insisted he needed to "take control" of my computer. So I allowed this, but he simply navigated to the "Profile" section of MyVerizon, had me check that information there was correct, then walked through the same steps I had tried before, with the same results.
I have since tried updating (and verifying) my e-mail and mobile phone numbers in my profile. Both say they need to be verified. I click the appropriate links to be sent e-mail and text messages for verification, but they never arrive. I have tried several times.
So I'm stumped. To make matters worse, I cannot find a support phone number to talk directly to a customer service representative.
