Worst Customer Service EVER!!!!!

First day as a Verizon customer and I'm already thinking of going back to my old carrier.  I spent 17 minutes on hold trying to activate my new device, only for the lady to tell me she doesn't activae new customers and needs to transfer me.  She places me on hold... for another 14 minutes.  Then she cold transfers me to someone who I have to explain my situation to all over again.  He says he can't activate it because I purchased it from Best Buy and needs to get me to someone who can help.  Another cold transfer, a 6 minute hold and I'm on the phone with someone who has NO IDEA what's going on  I explain her my situation and after literally being on the phone for 57 minutes, my phone was active.  

Great right....WRONG!!!  I needed to contact support again, so instead of waiting on hold, I decided to request a cal back.  The phone rings and the computer says someone will be with me.  After holding for 14 minutes, I just hung up.  Maybe the grass wqas greener on the other side.... At least I have 13 days to return it.
