Can't wait for my Verizon contract to end

Postby MemberSince99 » Thu May 15, 2014 5:49 am

Every time I deal with them I hate them more.

Today I go to log in to pay my bill which is about the only time I log in or otherwise deal with them (and once that contract ends so will my dealing with them) and they have all this new security crap, basically to force you to jump through hoops to pay them.

You know next one of these boneheads is going to think it's a good idea to do like their job and force you to change your password every 45 days because "SOX requires it" and they will force you to use some password you can't possibly remember, some weird freaking combination of lower case upper case digits and special characters at LEAST 20 characters long. Anyone caught writing it down or saving it will be harshly interrogated to death!

And what's up with them imposing terms and conditions on me paying them? I'm the customer not the employee. I can choose not to pay you again and you think you are going to make me agree to whatever your demands are in order to get paid? I should try that with my employer some time and see how far I get with that. A hearty Seig Heil to you too sir!

I can't wait to get out of my contract either! Sometimes I just want to toss my phone into the street so I don't have to deal with it anymore. But knowing my luck, someone would find someway to use my info on there against me. Is there any company that won't treat me like a herd of cattle? What happened to customer service?!

I was thinking about it, and it's not only Verizon who does this - they pretty much all try to impose conditions on getting paid. Honestly just be thankful you are paid in full and on time, and go play your fascist games with victims who have to put up with it, like your employees.

Had to mention that to be fair. They all do it. But having mentioned that I still am looking forward to seeing what T-Mobile has to offer. I really would like to be able to use my smartphone as a smartphone. To Verizon that's great, they'll just charge the living hell out of you for the priviledge on TOP of charging the living hell out of you for not doing it - greed is virtue ya know, as long as it's not the hourly help being greedy (the CEO and his henchman, that's virtue).

I have 6 more months on my contract with them, very much looking forward to it being the last cellphone contract of my life.

Like I have said in another thread AT&T has gotten way better since T-Mobile has started to take away some of their business. They are improving their network and lowering their prices. T-Mobile does not have the coverage to warrant the change unless you are always in the metro area.

Also I would suggest moving to a stored password solution such as LastPass. It stores all of your passwords online and lets you make a unique password for each site like you should and for $12 a year you can also use their app to access all of your info on your phone. It also has a built in password generator that you can use to generate strong passwords right in the form where you have to enter one.
Discover IT - $5,700
Chase Freedom - $5,700
Costco Citi - $13,000
Sallie Mae - $4,000
Chase Sapphire Preferred - $6,000
Chase Sapphire Reserve - $19,500
Citi Double Cash - $6,500
Amex BCE - $13,000

FICOs: Discover (777), SallieMae (764), Amex (767), Citi (772)
FAKOs: CK- TU (760), EQ (760)
