Trying to cancel service - HUNG UP ON

I waited over 1 hour for Verizon Customer Service to take my call. As soon as I uttered the words "I would like to cancel my service" the operator hung up on me. Her name was Kay.

And now I am on the line waiting again. Thanks for wasting my time. I do not want to refer Verizon to anyone now for this horrendous customer service.

I have such bad service in our area of southern colorado and have had this awful service for several years. one year i called in and they had me call a number every time i got dropped or was just too difficult to hear due to bad connection.  the rep called after a month or two of doing this and all he said was, yes you have really bad service. finally got them to give me a booster which helped very little. so last summer I talked to them again and heard that they had sold two towers in our area and that was why the service is so bad.  so thought about going to aTT and hung in there when verizon was working on installing new towers.  now this year the service is even worse and now the customer service is even worse and they are of course blaming covid.  With people working form home, the service should still be better than it is , unless they are dependent on verizon cellular and that is why we are also now getting horrible customer service as well.    so now have called several times to try to get answers to my questions about cancelling the service and what the penalties would be. I cant even get a call or get through to get this information.  I went to a local store to see and she told me that they have tried to get the info as well but were told that they havent had any complaints for our area.  thats ridiculous because on next door for our area, there are loads of people complaing about the same problems with their service. why should we be penalized when we try to cancel because the service is so bad and actually dangerous when we really need the service cant get through. sounds like a class action lawsuit is inorder.  whats a person to do.

You can blame Verizon for creating that environment. When it's stats stats stats vs letting agents do their job in peace, you get this.

1/20/2021 called 1.844. 837.2262 sa its the number their website as well as first google result for cancelling service

guy just did the same thing to me. waited 50 minutes the guy tells me its not the right number to cancel my service and he has to transfer me, after complaining he "puts me on hold" to talk to his manager and hangs up on me.

this is after a billing issue ive spent 5 hours trying to fix across 2 online chat sessions, calling the (800) 922-0204 2 times, finally finding a coporate executive email to start emailing which they still wouldn't refund me the money until i threatened arbitration... so much for being a loyal customer for 5 years...
