When asked about it, they are very complacent about blatantly false advertising.

Rossmann Repair Group Inc(17:58:24): when I click order now, it turns to 47.99/mo

Tanesha(17:59:13): Thank you for using Verizon's chat service. I will be more than happy to address your concern.
Tanesha(18:00:14): On the provided page is the general prices that we offer the plans in some areas. Once you click on Order, you will be given the price for your address.

Tanesha(18:02:14): I do understand. The price that is listed on the first page is a general price.
Rossmann Repair Group Inc(18:02:27): So how do I get the general price?
Rossmann Repair Group Inc(18:03:00): You realize if you hit add to cart on a website, people expect that to be the actual price they pay, especially if they have entered all of their business information on prior pages

I ran into this same issue several years ago when I bundled. I phoned the number on my voice bill and spoke with a rep. She was able to enter the pricing manually. It did take a few additional calls because they botched the speed and added some unwanted "extras" on the DSL package, but it wasn't a horrendous experience getting it straightened out. From what others have posted here and elsewhere, the online chat support is a total waste of time.

Actually it says the offer is " starting at " .... $37.99 in smaller print of course. Got to read the fine print.
