    I am hoping that someone in the know, or who works for Verizon could advise me of a good e-mail address to send a letter explaining a very poor customer service experience and being lied to.

    I realize this is an isolated experience at the Santa Ana, CA store and ALL of my other dealings with Verizon have been top-notch...so this is NOT a Verizon bashing thread. But at the same time, I am compelled to communicate my experience to Verizon Management.

    Long story short...I was told by a Verizon emplyee that I could change my plan from 2 years to 1 for an additional 70 dollars. When I agreed and went to pay that price nearly doubled! Also, the Verizon Rep said that I would get a 500 anytime minutes - good for one year...when I checked my account it was 15 minutes. I ended up in this store for over an hour and a half to complete 2 transactions...because no one would help the poor new guy they had help me. No one really tried to help me and even the store manager just blew me off.

    There is much more to the story, but I really don't want to bore everyone with every detail!

    Again, I realize this experience is not typical. I am not one to normally complain, but this whole ordeal is really bothering me.

    ^ Thanks very much. I just tried to send my letter and it truncates after 2000 characters...so I sent a "reader's digest" version...haha. My letter is 2 pages, so I guess I'm too verbose!

    i'm really sorry to hear about that, I really am, have you tried calling the store and asking to speak to a manager?

    I would, but the manager was the main problem...in fact he just left his brand-new employee alone with my situation (I felt sorry for him) and would not help...he basically just ran from the situation. I really thought the manager should have tried to help, as he knew what was going on, instead he promptly departed.

    Did you goto a corp store or an auth retailer? Sounds almost like you got duped into cancelling your plan and started a new plan.

    Not sure of the exact link but on VZW's page there used to be a 'contact us', might be something to check out and you might not have to "cliff notes" your letter.

    If the manager is part of the problem, then I would ask for the area manager.

    If you are having a problem with a store manager give customer service a call at 611 from your mobile or 800 922 0204 and ask to submit a VOC (voice of the customer) form. Generally when you have a problem with a store rep, vzw recommend you speak with the manager. But if the manager is the problem, submitting this form and leaving a cbr number with the rep you speak with over the phone, often can get your situation resolved a lot faster than you may think. Reps tend to get a little more lead way with customer service issues in a store than managers. Very little tolerance for store managers in matters of customer service.

    Those numbers work for Verizon wireless as well. They did for us when we called them about non responsive managers and rude customer service reps.

    Really want to thank everyone for the great suggestions. I literally took all of them and finally a Verizon Supervisor Named Miguel made right all of the issues I had.

    Hopefully those folks at the Santa Ana branch kinda help their new employees and at least "act" concerned when a customer has questions/problems. And most of all, just stand by what they say?

    And yes, I will go to the Tusin Store from this point foreward!!! Thanks Again!

    I doubt you'd get much out of calling those numbers because those are for Verizon. You need to look for Verizon Wireless executive numbers. Two toootaly diff companies. But if you want to express your concerns go to www.verizonwirelesssurvey.com. Keep in mind that while doing it that when you type in your mobile number it is rating the LAST verizon rep that assisted you. And the number that you are rating them (scale of 1-10) is based on the actual rep. Plz leave any addt'l feedback. Oue NPS scores go waaayyy up to out corporate office and they do take it very seriously. You'll have the most luck there. And if you have the rep and manager first and last name that is always helpful. Good luck.

    Get on that right away. There is no excuse for poor customer service. I abhor that so much.
