"Try Again Later" Errors, Paid Prepaid Account but Data Is Gone, Charge hit Card!


I paid for the next month of service on my prepaid account despite great difficulty getting through the Try Again Later errors. I assumed that the server issues were temporary, and gamely cleared my cache, tried several browsers, and reinstalled the app.

Finally, on November 5th, the LAST day of my plan, I was able to confirm a credit card charge. The charge went through and shows up on my credit card statement as of November 7th. 


I am not receiving dual factor authentication texts at all. When trying to log into my account, view current plans, or access the app, I am AGAIN getting "try again later" messages that I can't fix on my end.

Your phone support service has been extremely unhelpful and running me around in circles.

Verizon, [edit: I said "what the h-e-l-l" here and Verizon wouldn't let me post "a bad word". Verizon, I am a grown adult and you have earned my ire, and I have a right to express that. All I wanted was to give you money and, in return, use the service you provide. I had a good opinion of you a month ago. But now I know the truth, you absolute fraudsters. You've cheated me.  A clam could do better tech support than you. Your app engineers' only degree is from clown college, and they got a C- average because they're just not that funny. Your prepaid "service" is a business designed to fleece the wool off passing sheep, with no concern for retaining them in the pasture, freely letting them wander off to shepherds who actually care. I feel bad for the people you pay minimum wage to helplessly listen to complaints all day without the ability to fix anything. Go eat worms.]

I swapped to your company to get better service when I ran into issues with my old provider, and this is definitely worse. If I don't get this resolved this week I'm just going to swap again so that I can USE MY PHONE THAT I PAID FOR.

Please get back to me quickly. Thank you.
