Pending order, can’t upgrade

I had ordered a phone upgrade for in-store pickup but then cancelled not too long after in order to get two-day shipping. The order was canceled but now when I try to initiate a new upgrade order I get the message that there is a pending order and I can’t upgrade my line for another 2 years. I’ve tried calling and chatting with support multiple times but no one has been able to help me.

I am having the same issues. I ordered a Samsung Galaxy S21 on preorder from Samsung.com. Order was magically cancelled by the carrier. I am trying to figure this out and have been on the phone with Verizon for 2 hours + now. I keep getting transferred. I can not re order on Samsungs website because the line is not showing eligible for upgrade and that is because Verizon still shows it to be pending order. They need to really get this fixed, since it does not appear to be an isolated incident. As a 20+ year customer I do expect more of Verizon.

Update. Spent another 30 minutes added to my 2 hours already on the phone. The person helping me would not listen to what I was telling her and I had finally had enough and I rudely hung up on her. Never my intention to be a wiseguy but after 2.5 hours of getting jerked around and nobody listening or helping puts you in that state of mind. Very dissatisfied with Verizon at the moment.

I have the same issue and Verizon customer is the most useless group of people I've ever encountered. They can't seem to figure out how to get rid of the error and I keep getting the run around and keep getting passed around like a cheap hooker from one agent to another. If ATT had better coverage where I worked, I would switch back in a hear beat!!!

I also have a pending order and have been on a chat session for 6 hours now.  I upgraded my plan yesterday to Play More Unlimited and now I can't add Disney+ because 

You have a pending order, please check back in 15 minutes to make any modifications.

 

I hope someone responsible reads my chat session.. it's a doozy.  The reps changed my plan, my price, my billing settings, my discounts,  they've so far managed to make a bad customer experience even worse.  The one thing they haven't been able to do is allow me to accept the terms of Disney+ and start enjoying the perks of the package I bought because it comes with Disney+.   I have a help desk ticket open and am now just waiting and looking at AT&T plans.

I'm still waiting... and waiting and waiting and wondering if anyone at Verizon knows how their systems work?  Is there anyone competent there?  I upgraded and am now paying for a service that I'm not getting so how much will they refund on my bill?   Verizon, is there anyone there who knows what they're doing?
