How do you escalate an issue to someone that can actually solve the problem?

I don't even have the energy to regurgitate my entire situation again, since I have had to do it at least once per day for the last two weeks as I seemingly start over from the beginning every single time I call support.  The short version...I bought my wife a new iPhone 12 that was incorrectly activated under my line, rather than hers.  What was supposed to be an easy swap of phones between two of my 5 existing lines has turned into a nearly 2 week odyssey where one or both of our phones was not working.  My wife's phone finally started working last week, but my phone mysteriously deactivated from my line and I have been without a phone now for a week.  I am almost 2 weeks into this with 1-2 hours every day having to repeat my entire life story to a new rep while trying to get a status on this issue.  They all say they are "escalating" the issue and it should get resolved in 24-48 hours...which is obviously not the case.  I just spend another 2 hours with multiple reps only to get mysteriously disconnected.  Even though they asked me for my callback number like 3 times, they apparently did not intend to use it!  It's bad enough that I have had to work from home for the last 6 months because of this fudging pandemic, but now the phone I need to get my job done is not working and nobody seems to be able to help me.  Where do I go from here?  AT&T?  BBB?

Having similar issue, it’s taking several hours of many phone calls and still not resolved. So I decide to escalate the issue to a supervisor. Agent tells me “sorry I cannot do that.” She tells me not only that she cannot help me fix the issue but also that she cannot escalate the call to a supervisor. Because she works from home. The structure of Verizon right now is ridiculous. Not sure if it’s always been like this, but something needs to change. I’m not the only person being inconvenienced by this. It should not take months to resolve a billing issue. And there should be a process for escalating an issue that an agent doesn’t have authority to fix. I have never once experienced this one in all of my consumer life. Someone at Verizon reading this message needs to pass this info up the chain of command to get it fixed.

Issue: I’m on a plan that includes Apple Music for free (even my bill says Apple music includes) yet I’m being charged an extra $10 for it every month.
