How do I file a complaint. Our iphone 7 started having a cellular failure/no service issue. Contacted customer support on 9/13. Worked with support and was able to fix the issue for a couple days, but unfortunately it came back. Called customer support again on 9/16 . This time I was told that it was a recall issue with Apple and that I needed to take it to an Apple store. I was never told to first take it to a Verizon store. I asked it there was anything Verizon could do and was told "no" that it was a recall issue with Apple and I needed to take it to Apple so they could send it out for repairs. If Verizon sent me another phone, she said I would have the same issue. So, that night I went to the Apple store and waited a long time to find out that they could not fix the phone because the issue would come and go. The next day, I contacted Verizon to have one of my lines switched to a business line and decided to cancel the mobile protection on the iphone 7 because I had been told there was nothing that could be done to fix it. On Sunday, I got the error message again on the phone and a no SIM message. Decided to take it to the Verizon store to get a new SIM, thinking maybe that was the issue. Was told at the Verizon store that it was not the SIM, but my antenae. They said I could have gotten a replacement phone had I not cancelled the Total Mobile protection. I told them the only reason I cancelled it was because I was told that there was nothing Verizon could do. The store was going to see what they could do, but was not confident that could get a replacement phone now.
I have been a customer of Verizon for 20+ years. I trusted technical support to give me correct information. They did not and now I am stuck with a phone that doesn't work and no recourse. I am seriously looking to switching providers to T-mobile or Sprint. Why be loyal to Verizon if they do not reward you for that loyalty and this is going to happen.

I hope this provides clarity.
I did go to Apple and they would not fix it. Then today when I went to the Verizon store and they said I could have gotten a warrenty replacement had I not cancelled my insurance. I cancelled my insurance (on Friday) because the person that referred me to Apple (on Thurs) told me that there was nothing Verizon could do and that I needed to take it to Apple. They said if they gave me another iphone 7 it would have the same issue. Why keep insurance if I cannot use it? Now I am being told that I could have gotten a replacement. I would love to get a straight answer from someone.
