I switched to Verizon wireless the beginning of December and I brought (2) two phones over and purchased (2) phones from Verizon. I was promised while having my account setup by the Verizon rep, that I qualified for the BYOD rebate ($350 per phone). Well, after checking the status of the rebate, I discovered it was denied. I contacted Verizon by phone and was told it appears to be an error and someone will call me back. After waiting a few days, I decided to contact Verizon via chat and was informed that I did not qualify for the rebate because I did not have a start unlimited plan.....WHAT! I do have an unlimited plan AND YOUR agent set my account up! This is so frustrating as getting the rebates definitely was one of the perks that contributed to me leaving my previous cell phone provider. I truly feel this is false advertisement.
CrossFamilyof4, we understand the importance of making sure you get the benefits you are entitled to. We are here to assist in any way possible. Please respond to the Private Note we have sent, so we can get some more details.
Was the private note sent via email because I haven't received it as of today? Also an update......I was given a credit of $300.00 off my previous bill and promised the $400 off my next bill, but I had to re-contact Verizon (AGAIN) for it per the representative. Well, after contacting Verizon for my remaining credit (as promised) I was connected to a supervisor that refuses to give it me, but offered to give me $16.00 worth of credits for 25 months....UNACCEPTABLE because that was not what I was promised. I kept a copy of the conversation and I am posting below. I am so disappointed with Verizon and more disappointed that I was suckered into switching to Verizon.

Hello, I am writing in regards to a credit that I am due of $400.00 on this billing cycle. If you go back and review my notes, I was credited a total of $300 last billing cycle and was told to contact you all once my new bill post.
Thanks for the information. Let me check it.
I am checking the notes in your account.
Meantime, may I know how you're doing today, hope you and your family is doing well.
I am doing well and I hope all is well with you. Thank you so much for asking.
Yes, we are absolutely fine and thank you so much.
I am discussing with my supervisor.
Okay, no problem.
Thank you so much.
Meantime, there is an promotion for you, : Get $700 off the latest iPhone 13 Series smartphone for customers on a Premium Unlimited plan that trade in and upgrade to an eligible device.
I really want to upgrade but its saying I have to pay upfront and think its because I already have 2 phones that I am paying monthly for,
I am referring to the line ending 8855.
That is the line I am referring to also.
Yes, you're correct, your account is not eligible for the device paymetns.
Thank you so much.
No, thank you so much for checking.
I've discussed with my supervisor and got approval of manual credit of $16/month for 24 months.
$16 a month for 24 months for what?
$16*25 will be $400.
Unfortunately that was not what was discussed with me last time. I am now being inconvenienced twice and Verizon is again not upholding their end of the bargin.
I was promised when I switched over to Verizon, I would get $700 in rebates for switching and that was not honored.
Then I was told due to my inconvenience I would receive $300 credit one month and $400 the next month and now I am being told the $400 will have to be broken up......UNACCEPTABLE!
Can I please get a number for a manager and not a supervisor or to your Corporate Office because this is not fair to a customer.
Let me ask my supervisor to come over the chat and help you further.
Hi I am your Verizon expert for today you are connected to one of the supervisor
Hello and I am more than you sure you have been filled in.
I can see that you are facing issue with the rebate and you were promised $400 as for now we cant issue the rebate offer because it is expired to honor the credit we will apply the credit for you in 24 monthly installments
At this point, I would like contact in for a manager or Corporate.
Hello, are you still there.
In that case you can contact us at 1800-VERIZON
