VERIZON Wireless, has absolutely worst customer service I have ever encountered. Instead of resolving problem they told me to go home, call American Express & have them do a charge back!
Verizon is knowingly and intentionally overcharging iPad users for service and hoping they won’t notice. Hands down the worst customer service there is. instead of charging me just for the data I use on a one time basis Verizon started changing me a monthly fee for my iPad.
I went into a Verizon store and was told to I had to come back with the iPad to have the issue resolved. I took the iPad into my local store 5975 Topanga Canyon Blvd Woodland Hills, CA 91367, and explained the situation – The man in front pretended he didn’t know what I was talking about – when I asked for a manager he told me he was the manager.
At this point I informed him he either needed to resolve the problem since I had only used the service for less than an hour one time and was supposed to have 2gb of data for $30.00 – and not a monthly plan. And that I had as I was told to do turned off the Verizon wireless after the one time I used it so no data would be used until I needed it again.
I told him to either solve the problem or close my account and I would call American Express and have them do a charge back for the fees they had charged me.
His response was that I should go home and call American Express do the charge back and have them close the account! -
I tried one more time to resolve it in the store and he said I come back at 5:00 and maybe they could do something. It was between 3:00pm and 3:30 pm. I called American Express and they took care of it but this never should have happened.
Verizon is hands down the worst customer service there is.

If you wondering why someone without an iPad is so interested in the availability of designer iPad cases it’s because people know I carry my Toshiba R700 laptop as well as any other computer or tablet that fits in in a Chanel Grand Shopper or a Chanel tote bag, so they often ask my opinion on designer iPad cases.
