Cannot enroll in Mobile + Home rewards

Greetings!

I am having an issue in enrolling in the Mobile + Home rewards program to take advantage of an additional discount on my FIOS and Verizon Wireless bill. 

When going through the Verizon UP app, I can navigate to the "Mobile + Home Rewards" banner, and then click the "Join Now" button.  After clicking the button, I get an orange banner that states "Unable to process your request.  Please try again later."  I cannot progress any further to link my FIOS and Verizon accounts.

This has been going on for a week since starting new FIOS service.  Calls to VerizonUP, FIOS, and Verizon Wireless customer support have not been helpful, unfortunately.

Is there anyone who can assist with this issue?

Thanks!

So sorry to hear about the trouble you've been having since getting your FiOS service set up. For this, you would want to contact out FiOS support team directly. They should be able to navigate with you on getting things set up. A few things to remember, you would have to be the registered account owner or manager to enroll, your account would need to be current, and you can have any additional pending order like a plan change. We hope that helps!

Thanks for responding Erin!

Unfortunately, FIOS support was unable to help, insisted they could do nothing, and refused to join in on a conference call with Verizon Wireless.  I also tried through VerizonUP support, regular customer service, and a Verizon tech specialist who tried to walk me through the same failing steps again and again.

All in all, 4-5 hours of a mix of online chat and phone support for zero progress.

However, I have good news to report!  I was finally able to connect to a knowledgeable Verizon Wireless rep who was able to fix the problem.  Here were the steps that worked with me, if anyone has a similar issue:

1. If you had previously linked FIOS and Verizon Wireless and see both accounts under the same UserID, the first step is to unregister your Verizon Wireless account.  I believe you need to call Verizon, as they need to do so on their end.

2. I then went through the My Verizon App to register a userID based on my wireless number.  During the process, I was prompted to enter my userID and password for my FIOS account.  I could now see my FIOS and Wireless accounts reflected correctly in my Verizon account settings.

2. The rep then wrote an escalation ticket to fix the mobile + home enrollment issues.  I am not sure of the details in the ticket, but I was able to enroll a couple of hours later via the App.

3. Make sure to reenroll in paperless and check your other account settings so you keep your autopay discounts.

Other notes: Don't call FIOS, VerizonUP, a Verizon Wireless tech specialist, or use online chat.  The key is to get the correct Verizon Wireless Rep on the phone to assist!

i have had the same responses and problems. i have yet to get ahold of a rep that can help me with the problem.  i have spent days and days trying to enroll.  i have tried 3x over to get this fixed and i have yet to have anything work.  i keep getting the same problems as you did.  still trying to figure out how to get it fixed since calling just gets me sent to another rep only for them to not help me.  i have spent a total of over 20 hrs trying to get this problem fixed... maybe one day they can get it right.

This shouldnt be a mystery. There are many of us with the same issue. Fios seems totally capable of applying this discount correctly, but the wireless side of the house is incompetent (at best) or intentionally failing to provide the discount (at worst).
