We trusted the rep at the Verizon store who told us we’d get $700 for trading in our old Google Pixels to upgrade. That was a lie. According to the fine print, what we are actually receiving is a $20 discount on our device payments every month for 3 years. If we pay off early, or upgrade early, the balance of the $700 trade in value will be forfeited.

Customer service is totally impotent, disconnected from customer accounts far enough that they cannot make this right. The only course of action is to file a dispute for arbitration.

This is how it feels to be a dog on Verizon’s leash 🤡
