    Really poor network, dropped calls, no internet, so unlike verizon. Plainsboro, NJ

  • Kristin

    I’ve been having issues going on 4wks now. Started with occassionally getting the error msg when making a call. Then began dropping calls. Now all I can do is text. Been on with tech support a few times a week to get the same story, call us in 3 days and we will have it fixed. Meanwhile I’m still bring charged for service on 3 phones that don’t work. Seriously thinking of a new carrier. Been with Verizon 16yrs.

  • Steve

    911 calls aren’t connecting. Took 6 attempts to get connected. Kept telling me that it couldn’t be completed as dialed and check my # & try again. When I finally got thru it dropped the call! I’m done.

    I had service this morning and this afternoon. Now I have nothing. I can not make calls. I’m pretty sure that I can’t receive them either. I can’t send or receive texts. I live alone so it’s nice to know that you can make a phone call in case of emergency. A good friend of mine was in an accident last week and airlifted to a hospital that is an hour and a half drive from here so a phone that functions would be nice to receive any updates on him. I’m also unemployed right now and I guess any potential employers will just say screw me and hire the next guy in line because his/her phone works and they can answer it. And then the kicker is how do you even talk to someone to see how long your service is going to be interrupted? I’m pretty sure nobody is going to tell me on here. East Moline, Illinois 61244

    Veizon messages stuck I sending since the update 3 days ago. If I restart my phone it resends those messages to those people again.. what did you do ??? Fix it

  • Dan Rozenboom

    Switched to unlimited data a few weeks back and now I have no usable phone service. Called Verizon customer service and got nowhere. Reset network and could never get a competent walk through on factory reset. Granted some of the problem was a lack of communication due to bad phone performance. They couldn’t get my phone to backup my contacts. Said my data was fine but that I needed to go to wifi to complete a backup. I asked them why I cannot use the Internet and they reluctantly admitted that they throttled my data to 3g when I was under 2gigs used! Don’t fall for the unlimited data scam!

  • Laurie Fein

    Can’t send texts or make calls. I did the network reset, turned my phone off and on and added the area code. They said it’s a network issue. At least they admitted it. All the reps were very nice and tried to help.

  • coco

    Still long time issues with Verizon internet. Poor quality service for high$.!!!

  • Diane Wilkins

    My internet is down in Danville Virginia come on people

  • Phil. C.

    My community has had issues with our service since the last snow storm. (one month ago) We all are losing calls to low bars/weak signal in zip code 80535. The neighbors have purchased new devices only to receive the same result. Can someone please look into this?

  • Barniferous

    “We’re sorry. Your call did not go through.” Any number I try. Columbus, Ohio, starting at 8:45, continuing at least past 9:00 AM. Must be a Verizon Wireless problem since my landline (AT&T) can call the number.

  • Chuck Rogers

    I’m in very rural Northeastern Washington, but have good service much of the time. I know they have a tower issue, and it’s difficult for them to get techs up on the mountain to work on it, but it’s no excuse. I deserve the same service as anyone, since I pay through the nose for it. I should be able to expect as good as it gets most of the time, especially when I have 3 bars @3G. If I’m 50 feet higher, I have 3 bars 4G, but the internet just doesn’t work for long stretches. They just about should know me by name, as I’ve spent hours on the phone with good techs and bad techs. I’m on the North end of the Spokane Indian Reservation. I’m not a native for whatever that’s worth. Lightning strike, bad service, rain storm, bad service, ice storm, bad service, holiday, bad service. This tower must be falling apart, and needs replacement with new parts, maybe a good ground rod and whatever, but it only gets fixed temporary. When it works, it works good, when it doesn’t it doesn’t!

    Outage in new Port richey Florida 34652

  • Patrick Starr

    lets just say that the nightmare started when i decided to upgrade to FiOS digital voice. The billing was so screwed up that I could not pay my bill for 2 months, I went to their Fios Experience store, they could not figure it out. Now I don’t have voice mail and the on-line instructions to set it up do not work. To complete the day, my FiOS set-top box is malfuntonng and I have been trying to talk to customer “service” (what a joke) and have waited for hours on-hold only to be cut-off after a certain period. So my advace: try another provider f another one is available, I certainly will. Verizon CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!!! (pos)

  • CJ

    Verizon down for 4 hours on July 4, 2017.Just came back up. ZIP 13693. Unable to make calls, send text messages, connect to the network, NOTHING!!! Both phones in the house! This is absolutely ridiculous. Tried to call service.. call dropped over and over again. I pay a heck of a lot of $$$ for this. Really Verizon?? So much for for “the most reliable network” . I think you need to look up the definition of RELIABLE!

    Slow data speed in 59602, normally I have 4 bars LTE, now i have 1 bar 3G. Issues started after the earthquakes yesterday

  • Jessica

    3 days now, no mobile connection. I can only do anything using wifi. Really annoying! Why am I paying full price for crap service. If I drive 2 minutes, I have 4g. I had service at home until 3 days ago! Fix it!!!! I have 4 children and am at home alone with them all day while hubby works. God forbid one of them get hurt or snake bit and I can’t call for help! Melrose, Florida

  • Opal Long Brand

    Since July 13, 2017 my daughter and her husband has had no data service on their phones. They live just outside of Wilburton, Ok. What could be causing this problem and how can they fix it.

  • Sheila Medley Foshee

    I have been having a problem with my data for a couple weeks now. I am suppose to have LTE but it mainly stays on 1x or 3G. Why am I paying for this service but have 3G or less on data.

  • Deb
