Video Rating: 4 / 5

Amazing and scary if you own a Verizon phone. This video contains the recordings of a survey on Verizon Wireless that finds that Verizon misquotes their rates over the phone 93% of the time. NOTE: The video says that it was inspired by the VerizonMath.com story. The correct website is Verizonmath.blogspot.com. VerizonMath.com isn’t owned by the guy that did the original work, and I’m sorry it is listed so prominently in the video. And also, sorry for the typo in the third number. Sort of ironic… :)
Video Rating: 4 / 5

The network also recently rolled out a resource guide on its web site aimed at helping students interact with government agencies and elected officials

  22. glupsamja says:

    @battery77 yeah, you’re right, i wasn’t thinking about that, thanks, i found your info helpful :)
    thumbs up!

  23. battery77 says:

    @glupsamja to force shut any running applications in the background. Sometimes when you’re shutting down normally you’ll get a couple of “End Program” alerts and you have to do it manually, this forces all apps to close.

    25 cents a kilobyte, lmao a picture would cost like 400 dollars to download

    Since you already knew the answer to the questions. You could give the rep the benifit of the doubt that they gave you the wrong verbage. Ask the rep again to make sure they gave you the correct answer. And if they stick with their same wrong answer then you can assume that they are to lazy to ask for help or to look for the correct answer. Last, if you have an inadequate trainer. You get inadequate rep. This happens with all companies not just Verizon Wireless.

  31. jcsj6776 says:

    Before you judge this video. You should call each carrier to make a comparison. Why be bias to just Verizon Wireless. Call ATT, Sprint, T-Mobile, Alltel, Cricket, and etc. in your Market. Plus, calling cust service in your market is handle in different region of the United States. Next time ask which call center handled your call. There could be a learning curve for that location and for you to assume to judge Verizon Wireless to be a bad carrier. Don’t be an idiot make another video to compare

    Bad Service, Bad Products, Bad Choice, That’s t-mobile!

    Check out the “T-Mobile Boycott Page” on Facebook for all the latest t-mobile lies, scams, lawsuits, class actions, One Click links to State, Federal and Consumer Protection Agencies. You can read t-mobile customer horror stories and even leave your own.

    Bad Service, Bad Products, Bad Choice, That’s t-mobile!

    How did that one operator who answered both questions correctly slip past Verizon’s strict policy of only hiring idiots?

  35. pixelchild says:

    @JStanz02 haha, that had me cracking up as well.

  36. hellishemo says:

    I bet people’d kill for .002 CENTS

  37. stardog2897 says:

    i didnt understand how bad verison is thank u this vid was helpful

  38. johnchen0213 says:

    maybe it’s really .002 cents per kb

    @alianza1310 You so funny! You make no sense!

  40. SufferInJuly says:

    .99¢ = 99/100 of 1 cent (That’s LESS than 1 penny.)
    $.99 = 99/100 of 1 dollar
    $.99 = 99 cents or 99¢
    Why do people not know this?
    .99¢ makes no sense anyway as numbers appearing to the right of the decimal point ALWAYS represent a fraction of 1. Whole number ALWAYS appear to the left of the decimal point.

  41. KaineTECH says:

    @alianza1310 I think _56_ calls to customer service counts not only as research, but DILIGENT research. Whether or not they ask you for a contract, the point of the video is that the people they hire, train and put on the phone to dispense information are dispensing WRONG information, and they can’t even agree on which wrong answer to give you.

  42. alianza1310 says:

    Thats the worse video i have ever seen. FLASH NEWS FOR YOU RETARD…Verizon Wireless has been recognized for BEST CUSTOMER SATISFACTION and guess what they don’t ask you for 2yr contract when you add a data plan OR change your calling plan. DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE MAKING ANOTHER STUPID VIDEO.

  43. zxxkcxxz says:

    @nickyperezz Lmfao, yea xD

  44. AndrosForever says:

    rofl .5 cents per kilobyte!? holy shit pure robbery!

  45. JStanz02 says:

    lmao @ “they shut you off… actually”

  46. brkila says:

    lolzz

  47. cocacola443 says:

    @Creepingdeathx81 The point is that the majority of people who call won’t look it up because they won’t know it’s wrong, and then they’ll be charged a rate different than they were quoted. Rather, the point is that it’s dishonest unless Verizon makes a massive effort to train their customer representatives that “point zero zero two dollars per kilobyte” is the price, not “point zero zero two cents per kilobyte” (and consistent numbers would be good, too…I wonder where .15 comes from.)

  48. cocacola443 says:

    @flicklefish lol, yeah, you ever see what happens when the computers go down and someone in retail has to make change by hand?? Heaven forbid. ;-)

    Whenever I go to the store and pay in cash, I try to figure out the number and denominations of bills and coins I get back before I get them back.

    Ooh, even better…every get something that’s, say, $15.68, and pay with a $20 bill and a $1 bill, and have the clerk look at you funny and give you the $1 bill back?

  49. cocacola443 says:

    “dude who wouldcall these poor people at wprl that many times”

    @URIN He called a radio station? :-)

    Seriously, the point was to demonstrate that Verizon is misquoting the rates for data roaming in Canada, and they aren’t even misquoting them consistently.

    Perhaps you didn’t notice that the answers were different many times. Trust me, they are. :-)

  50. Creepingdeathx81 says:

    ok so what was the point of this so what if you got so many different answers questions like you asked can just be easily looked up without havinig to call .
