Verizon continues to bill me for returned router

 When Verizon decided to increase my bill when my contract was over, I decided I needed to find ways to trim costs.  I started with my router rental.  I looked on this forum to find that, indeed, you can buy your own router and hoop it up easily.  That is what I did.  I returned Verizon's router and retained the receipt.  In October, I received a bill showing the router rental.  I called and the rep removed the charges and he did and credited me $10 for 2 months of router rental.  In my November bill, this charge re-appeared.  No one seems to be able to explain why this is.  After being on the phone with the representative for 50 minutes,I was told that a specialist would call to explain this to me.  So far, 28 hours later, no phone call, no explaination.  I think this is a tactic to see if I will give up and go away.

Contact your states Public Utilities Commission or Public Service Commission and file a complaint. Do a google search to get the proper state agency.

and no, if they say pay it first and then they will credit it....say no way.

the state agency should have a phone number and online complaint portal. I would call for faster service.
