very disappointed with landline porting

On 7/25, I ordered service and on 8/20 service with FIOS

Tech came out to install everything and noticed my numbers hadn’t been ported. He called CS and they said it would be done by that following Tues and I was emailed a new order 8/20 effective 8/25 for my phone number and virtual number. However my number wasn’t ported.

I called again about a week or so and was told I needed to call my current phone company because there was an issue on their side. I called them and at that time they didn’t show any attempts to retrieve the number from Verizon/FIOS but they provided me their Port/Release email address which I proved to your customer service rep.

I called back to make additional changes to my service on 9/28 because I didn’t receive what I originally wanted and also to inquire about my phone number being ported. I was told to exchange my equipment for my changes and made an appt with a tech to fix the phone port issue. The tech appt. was schedule for 10/13 btw 8-noon. I took off and waited but no one showed up. I called back on 10/15, that following Saturday to let you guys know, no one showed up.  The Rep I spoke with thought he might be able to fix this issue over the phone without the need of a tech. We were on the phone for a while and he asked if he could call me back when the issue was resolved. I provided him with my information from the previous company, including my account number… He called me back and said, he thinks we’re all set and fixed but it would take a few days for this to take effect.  A few minutes after we hung up the phone, I received an email stating “Verizon needed me to contact them because additional information is required to process my order. I called right back and received a different Rep. This Rep read through my notes and said, nothing was needed. Just ignore the email.  I waited and it’s been over a week and still my number hasn’t been ported.

I have provided your Reps with the name, phone numbers, and port/release email address of my previous company yet as of 10/24, my numbers still haven’t been ported and I continue to pay TWO phone bills because your company doesn’t seem to be capable of porting a number.

If this isn’t resolved within the next week or so and my account credited for this past few months of needed to pay two phone bills to keep my number available until your team figures out how to port it. I will have to cancel my services.
