    While I find that Verizon has the best cell phone service throughout the U.S.A., I also agree that they do participate in misleading service prices. They find it cheaper to subcontract out because then they are not responsible for healthcare, dental care, and other things associated with hiring their own employees. Actually, they would do better to hire there own employees, if for no other reason then checks & balances and trackinig service.
    They are bad in that when I did not owe them money, it took more than one year for me to get them off of my back. The situation went so far as to have collection agencies contact me on something that I did not owe. It was actually Verizon that owed me!
    The only Verizon service that I have is a landline (which is probably really digital!). They have been trying to get me as a 'triple play' customer for a while now, but they cannot give me what my cable provider gives me at that price. So no Verizon for me.
    You are correct, unless the FCC gets involved there is little that we can do. But what we can do is write to the FCC, write to your State Attorney General, write to the Better Business Bureau, write to your local, city and state representatives. I say write because it fairs better than electronic medium (e-mail, website complaints, etc.). You can go as far as to sue them in small claims court. It is not much, but it is a start. And if any of these solicitations or offers or problems stem from the mail, then that is a case for the Post Office General because it constitutes mail fraud!
    And yes if we collectively did not use Verizon, the company would be forced to change. But how many of us are really willing to boycott them by not using or disconnecting their services collectively? We are so stuck thinking that we are powerless that we have become slaves to companies like Verizon.

    Unfortunately, this is how a lot of the cable companies are working throughout the U.S.A. Because there seem to be no regulation or very little, they seem to get away with misrepresenting deals. Unless the FCC gets involved with this, many more people are going to be sucked into these type of things. Because these companies know that they will not and cannot be penalized, they are going to continue with these practices. One way to slow this is to have people simply not use there services. This may prove difficult because we are all reliant upon cable companies for entertainment and internet access, and some of us for telephone service as well. Writing to the State Attorney General, writing to the Better Business Bureau, writing to your city and state representatives, writing to corporate office and taking some of these thieves to small claims court are other ways that we, individually, may fight them. I say 'writing' because it seems to still be more effective that electronic means (e-mail and the like). Also, if these offers are coming to you via the mail, then this is also a matter of the Post Office General because it constitutes mail fraud. And that's an easier way to get to these big companies in their pockets books! Having a monopoly because of your service area does not give a company the right to take advantage of us.
    If we all did it, then these companies would have to change, but the question is...How many of us are willing to take on these companies? Many of us are just not willing to do without or make waves collectively.
