My intial thread seems to be closed. The problem was moved up the chain and in the end here is what I learned. I no longer have a dial tone because my area was upgraded to Fios, this was the info I got during my call to Verizon. So my phone service was shut off without warning. I asked to have my service cancelled so I am no longer charged and the call was then transferred to India where I couldn't understand the person, probably because I have to now use a cell phone. So I am still being charged by Verizon for a service they disconnected. I can't believe this is legal so I filed a complaint with the Attorney General in my state.
Still trying to get through to cancel. This time I got disconnected while waiting. Is there a way to cancel other than through the phone?
