I was looking to leave Verizon's TV service but keep the phone and internet. When I called Verizon, I spoke toa helpful lady who talked me out of leaving the TV, as that would incur a cost due to the 24 month contract still being in place.
Instead, she emailed me a quote:
|Products and Promotions
|(Rent): Multi-Room DVR Package - 2 Rm
|Estimated Monthly Subtotal
|Taxes, Fees and Other Verizon Charges
|Estimated Monthly Charges
As you can see, this is still a Triple Play bundle but changes my TV channels to Local Service. Furthermore, she told me that I could return the DVR STB and that would mean I'd only have to pay ~$12 for a standard STB. I asked, "Well, why wouldn't I return both as I don't need them, and then don't have to pay any rent". She said that this would be fine - just take the boxes to UPS and they'll take care of it.
Today, I called to put this plan in place. I was told that I couldn't get what I was quoted, as the Select TV package was the lowest I could take and stay in the Triple Play bundle. I told the agent that I have an email quote that shows I can get just local TV for 72.99 per month (the Select package puts it at $79.99/mo). While $7 a month isn't huge, it's significant when one isn't going to be using it at all. On top of that, I was also told that even if I return both STBs, I would still have a rental charge for a box on my bill as it's required as part of having a TV service.
Come on, Verizon. You can't give people quotes and then not follow through on them. I came here to look for how to contact Verizon electronically, so that I could include the quote I was given. As you're probably aware, this seems impossible.
I'm hoping that someone from Verizon reads this and will get in touch with me about honoring what I was quoted.
