Today I have had the pleasure of speaking with 7 Verizon representatives, including a supervisor and find they agree they cannot change my bill without changing phone numbers, or at least exposing to numbers to loss.
If i want to switch to AT&T they can guarantee I retain the numbers I now have by porting them over and keeping them active 100% of the time. Verizon insists they have to terminate a plan, possibly (probably) lose numbers then reactivate.
the problem is I have phones under contract, which I am willing to buy out at their price, but they claim when I do the contract terminates and by the time they install the new plan my numbers will likely be gone.
Now if we step back and think about it, nothing needs to be actually done to any device, it is an accounting change but they all swear there is no vehicle to get there within Verizon, so they lose a customer...incredible. Well Lilly is cute kid anyway, I guess VZ doesn't need the business.
The last kicker is that to communicate in writing now REQUIRES USPS snail mail, they don't have an email contact. I told the last rep that Verizon would be a good name for a technology company.
I've been trading VZ very successfully, but I'm looking for a good research site to get stock picks from. I've made a lot of money (over $60k) from UA (underground stock alerts*) google them - looking for more solid research sites to add to my trading arsenal. please leave your recommendations below along with a review, i think this will be beneficial to all traders here on the board. thanks and good luck to all!
Just bought 2,000 shares. You can't argue with Warren Buffett. He knows how to make money.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You owned it for 8 years and you just made up a new ID today to report this?
I've owned it for 4 years and I'm way up.
Timing is everything.
Verizon has a class for folks like you, its called "How To Find The Power On Button On Your FIOS Equipment", obvious that you have not taken it yet.
Kinda hard to make money on this stock when you don't own any shares. Ain't that right, moron?
Then they'll zonk you with a $230 early termination fee. Call your attorney general if it happens to you!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
3 years, +42%, 5 years +82%, and a 4-5% dividend each year. Yeah, stagnant. Bet you wish all your stocks would stagnate like Verizon.
10 million shares in first half hour of trading can only be explained by institutional buying. The big boys see 60 within a year. JMHO
shocker...they STILL haven't figured out the "service" part of "customer service". they treat every subsequent call (even if it's about the same issue) like it's the first time you've called. more like "customer frustration".
I am buying VZ here at the close at 48.60 at my own risk. I am thinking there may be a little bounce on Monday. They have been buying VZ here while a lot of other stocks I am watching have moved down in the last hour. GLTA The candlestick also looks like it could move up Monday.
If you look at the one year chart of VZ it continues down for some time before it stops. It appears that they have only begun the journey now. The DOW moves up this much in one day and VZ is in the red could be an indicator that they are not interested in changing direction. I have been hearing many say buy VZ but have seen few doing it.
what are you ranting about- i bought in at $23.47, have collected quarterly dividends for a few years, and its now pushing $50.00- why would longs complain about that?
