I ordered a new Galaxy S20 to be picked up in-store on 11/9/2020. I picked up the phone and left my Galaxy S9 as a trade in. It is in PERFECT condition with no scratches, cracks, etc. I was told the store would mail back the phone and the trade in was quoted at $400. I have not heard anything about a credit on my account, etc. and it has been a week.
After spending 20 minutes on the phone, yesterday, they had a very difficult time tracking the S9 and what they DID find connected to my account shows an S20 being shipped from TX on 11/9/20 and arriving in my city on 11/12/20. As I stated I picked up my S20 in-store on 11/9/20.
What is going on?! The original phone wasn't even purchased through Verizon and was owned by me outright. My phone bill is over $200 currently and I'm not happy that I did everything in-store to curtail just this sort of issue. Where is my phone and where is my credit?
LadyDulcinea, we understand wanting to know the whereabouts of the phone in regards to the trade in credit. Did you call the store where this transaction took place and speak with the agent who assisted you? Where you provided with a submission ID?
LadyDulcinea, thanks for the reply. When you reached back to the store location that you left your phone at, what information did they provide you? Since the phone was left at the store location, we would recommend working with that location about your trade-in.
The store has been contacted by me and by Customer Service. Still no answers. My property is still missing. The store said they sent it on 11/9 in a batch with other devices but cannot provide or customer service with a tracking number. I was told Friday to give it two weeks... which is tomorrow. If I don't get an answer by Tuesday morning, I will be contacting the BBB about the store and Verizon. Currently since the phone was bought outright and it's been lost and no trade in credit issued, Verizon has lost my personal property. I may have to stop paying my bill until the $400 credit is applied or there is a resolution. 15+ year customer here. What a shame.
I mean I guess I'll call back Tuesday. That is if I'm not disconnected from chat repeatedly, transferred and on hold for more than 20 minutes, or hung up on from Customer Service... all which happened on Friday.
LadyDulcinea, this is definitely not the type of experience we would want for you. Please keep us posted on what occurs. We do offer support not only over the phone or chat but on Facebook & Twitter as well 24/7:
