When I switched over to Sprint to get the Palm Pre from Verizon Wireless, the switch was painless and quick. In fact, I was surprised that Verizon didn’t try to get me to stay with some offer, like the way AOL used to do. When I moved my old Verizon number over to Sprint, they said it might take 8-12 hours, but in actuality, it took less than one hour. I didn’t keep checking it but it may even have been under 30 minutes. As a comparison, when I moved my number from Vonage to Ooma, it literally took weeks.
So, with such a smooth transition, it was a little funny when I got one last email from Verizon asking me to take a survey to find out why I left their service. I started answering some questions about why I left, and after about the 3rd screen, I got this error below:
This error can be caused by many things but the most common is too many requests. So I guess a lot of people are being asked to take a survey about why they are leaving Verizon Wireless. Nice parting shot Verizon.
