The really, really short version:
Copper landline broke. No repair. Requested switch to POTS over fiber, but instead was switched to Digital Voice and Quantum 50/50 on a 2 year contract without my authorization.. (I already had Quantum 50/50, FIOS ONT, etc.)
Link to Verizon's stated policy about this situation:
I have been trying to resolve this through the 800#, and through the local repair manager, but with no results so far. Most reps are unaware of POTS over fiber, and insist Digital Voice is my only option. .
I believe this was an honest mistake, but my account was closed and a new account initiated without my knowledge or OK. Some would call that consumer fraud.
I hope someone from Verizon Support contacts me through this forum. I can supply additional details, if needed.
