I have been without landline phone service since Wednesday
Enthusiast - Level 1

I have been without landline phone service since Wednesday, July 17, 2013. It is now Sunday, July 21 and still no service after at least 12 phone calls to Verizon and being given times the service will be restored, all vacant promises. It seems I made a big mistake when I recently switched to Verizon and FiOS. I am going to get out of this contract even if I have to go to court. I cannot believe there is no outrage on this board of the outage that Verizon says is affecting many in this Florida area. Additionally, I am hoping this message will be posted because this is the second time I wrote it. The first time I tried spell check and it sent me back to the home page.. Then I tried to preview my message and I lost the whole message. Sounds like typical Verizon.
