Horrible customer service, dropped calls and faulty products

Does Verizon offer partial credits to accounts due to defective equipment and inability to use their services? I received a new set top box that would not download my existing HBO and SHOWTIME accounts. After numerous calls on hold, dropped service calls and misdirected (on purpose) calls to billing in customer service to increase my services...I finally waited over one hour for technical assistance tonight to be told my new set top box was faulty and a new one would be sent in the mail. I asked about a partial refund because I could not use it during the least two weeks. I was told by the tech he would send a new box and put me in touch with customer service after explaining to them the circumstances and that supervisor would need that info for a partial credit to my account. A horrible customer service rep {edited for privacy} bluntly stated no partial credits and tech should not have said a partial credit was possible. By this time I was on the phone over one our and not a very happy customer. I asked to speak to a superior to which {edited for privacy} said they were too busy and a partial credit would not be possible for my two week period with faulty equipment. I demanded to speak with a supervisor and was put on hold for an additional 70 minutes. I am STILL ON HOLD!!!! This is no way to treat customers! I am disconnecting my call and BEG THAT A VERSION REP get back in touch with me to resolve this. Under what circumstances does verizon provide partial credit for a customer who has not been able to use it because the equipment is DEFECTIVE??? Hopefully new set top box is enroute..HOPE IT IS NOT DEFECTIVE!!!!!!
