New plan price not what I was quoted!
1ArmPaperHanger

Yesterday evening I had an online chat with a Verizon representative. Told him I was considering changing carriers so as to get unlimited everything for a good price. After a brief discussion he came back with a great price. I told him to go ahead and change our plan and since I had to leave the house I asked him to e-mail a confirmation of the change.

Later, when I checked the e-mail confirmation guess what? The new plan he put into effect was much higher than what he quoted me. I immediately initiated another chat with another representative about this. The new representative was totally uncooperative and could not or rather would not honor the price I was quoted earlier. I have been a loyal Verizon customer for many years but, guess I'll be looking for a new carrier.

What was the quote price and what price did you have in the email?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

First mistake was trusting a chat rep. Phone reps often have to fix the mess ups from store and chat playing damage control.

Second, agents have zero ability to honor prices that aren't in the system. Just like how someone can't go to your employer and ask for something impossible, Verizon reps only have the ability to put you on plans that are either A) a standard plan or B) a targeted offer like the 55+ discounted unlimited plan in Florida. At most this would get like a one time courtesy credit.

Third, whenever a plan is changed, it's either pended to start on a fresh cycle or backdated. The higher quote could very well have two different dates - your current cycle and the cycle in advance.

1ArmPaperHanger, that's certainly not the experience we want anyone to have. I would not ever want to see you leave us. I apologize for the confusion we have caused and the misquoted plan cost. I want to help with options. Please check your messages.

Thanks but, all my settings are set correctly to receive messages so, I don’t know what the Verizon rep is referring to.

If there are no PMs in your inbox, then, most likely, the rep hasn't sent it yet.

Glitchedpixel may have the answer. When changing plans, the first bill is often higher than subsequent ones due to prorating (the old plan and the new one). If what the rep promised was legit, the next bill should be close to the promised figure (plus taxes and any other fees).
