I love Verizon. I have great service and never had a single issue they haven't resolved quickly. You are probably just a dick head.

I have had noting but lies told to me. These people wouldn't know honesty if it jumped up and bit them in the arse. I don't understand why it is so important to them to lie and be void of any resemblance of moral integrity in order to do business. Maybe it’s a prerequisite of that type of business because it smells throughout the whole industry. Maybe it’s because they are loved so well by people that are infatuated with “Dick Heads” like one of their beloved employees using the pseudonym of “Ray”.

Anyway, the local news did a great review of them on their consumer report a few weeks back. That report sure did show just how heinous these gangsters are.

My suggestion, go with a reputable pre-pay and forget getting tied up with these immoral thugs.

Nothing but lies. They're too busy thinking about "Dick Heads" to sit down and be honest with the victims that walk in the door. Go in and ask for Ray and you will see.

Hey Ray, how much did you say that phone cost the last time I was in there since the price seems to keep changing.

I'm a Verizon customer. Haven't had any bad experience with them. But then I'm not their ordinary dick head customer. If you have sense enough to tell most business people what YOU want and what YOU will pay, then things go smoother. Phone companies are like car dealers, if you tell them what you want and how much money you're going to spend, it's amazing how things come together. Watch out for their little rip offs like phone batteries, $40 from them, $3.50 on line, car charger from them $26, $2.75 on line. I you have sense enough to operate a cell phone, you ought to have sense enough to run a computer. Verizon has the best service area of any others I've checked.

They all lie. We started out with TMobile and things got so messed up with their creative billing it became rediculous. Everytime we would call them, they would tell a different story as ro why it was happening. That's called lying. Our son works in a law office a d got them to check into it and TMobile all of a sudden said they would drop the contract and we could go our merry way. Hummm. We then went with Verizon and found out they are no better at managing the truth.

It's not TMobile or Verizon, It seems to be the celular industry as a whole. Lying is just parf of doing business witb them. I also saw that report on TV about them and they hit the nail on rhe head. According to their investigation the cellular industry is tied with the cable industry in being the lowest rated in honesty, even lower than politicians.

i went with tracfone with triple lifetime minutes and service. my phone uses the verizon network and i pay 9.99 a month for my minutes.

it works for me as i don't text or surf the web with my phone.

my daughter uses a straighttalk phone and has an unlimited plan for $50 a month. her phone also uses the verizon network.

of course iphones and the newest galaxy phones aren't part of the monthly plans.

there are alternatives to the big guys you just have to be willing to look for them.

Actually you can get the latest iPhone's and Galaxy phones through Straight Talk but you have to pay full retail for the phones...it is not cheap.

I too use tracfone and have had absolutely no problems with it. It does use the Verizon towers. Other of their phone utilize other providers towers. Also be careful when you buy a phone locally at the Dollar Store or Wal-Mart. What might work in Marion will not work across the mountain. Go online to tracfone.com and enter your zip code to see what phones will work in your area. Not all phones that work in Marion will work in Saltville but all phones that work in Saltville work in Marion.

I have Verizon, and I enjoy the service out in the Countryside, Data does not work out here "thank Goodness for WiFi. I however DO NOT care for their Employers especially in the stores, I upgraded my phone back in March a day early because I needed one bad "droid X" screwed up, so I called the 1800 number and they said I could do it in a verizon store so I went to the one in Bristol, I upgraded to the "FREE" IPhone, The Girl "Leigh" activated it and said some Jibber Jabber about promotion and free 30 buck upgrade fee. Nothing else was said so got the phone, everything was fine until I got my bill and it was almost 100 bucks!! I called in again and had to go through the bill, they called the store and the "Leigh" girl said the charges was for 1. wrong phone "restock fee" 2. equipment charge, 3. upgrade fee, needless to say I didn't exchange phones "droid" was sold a few days ago, no equipment was purchased with IPhone, so she said she'd take off the upgrade fee of 30.00 and all others were taken off!! Few weeks later had to call back in went through the whole sprew again and finally the guy I was talking to at the 800 number took the upgrade fee off and got my bill back to the 64.00 it has been for two years!! If you wanna do business with these folks order inline not in stores... Same thing happened at the store in the bristol mall back in the early 2000's and I swore I'd never go with them again, but I did and don't regret the service but their Loyalty to their customers is awful!!!

Where do you guys go when you have problems? I go to the Marion store and I've only had positive results.Everyone that works there are very nice and know what they are doing,I've never had a problem with my bill and I got a smart phone and I hate to sy it but its smarter than I am and I would have to call for help or go by the store and ask questions and they always helped me and said no problem.i think we are lucky to have a Verizon store right here in Marion.

There was a report on TV 4-5 weeks back that showed there was a “pattern of deception” associated with these people. They even had a person that use to be a sales representative of them on that told stories of what they were required to do in order to get a person to sign a contract. The report said that they tried to get someone from the company on to discuss what they had uncovered but were told that there would be “No Comment” as a response. Now, you hear these immoral politicians say “No Comment” all the time when they get caught at something and we know what that means so take it from there. Anyway, we were thinking of maybe looking into Verizon until we saw that report. Thank goodness we saw that report before signing our lives away with them. We went with a pre pay service from Walmart and have been very happy with it. We have a smart phone with unlimited voice, text, data at a fraction of the cost of these dishonest contract purveyors and the monthly cost is exactly what they advertised the monthly cost to be. Honesty always prevails.

Our contract finally runs out with these people in two months. It has been 22 months of anything but honesty. We have never seen anything so dishonest and still be able to stay out of jail. In another 2 months we are going to go prepay and these gangsters can go to hell.

A business based on dishonesty and deception.
