Local and Regional Calls
You will need the following information before you contact Verizon to discuss a billing dispute:
- Date of the bill
- Amount of the charge
- Label of the charge from your bill
- Page number from the bill
- Reason for your dispute
Contact the long distance company directly to dispute any incorrect long distance charges. You will find the appropriate phone number in the left margin of the long distance carrier's page of your bill.
If your long distance carrier is Verizon, please contact us for more information.
Charges from other long distance carriers
Verizon bills on behalf of your long distance company and other long distance companies that your household may use. If you, or another member of your household, place a long distance call using a seven-digit dialing code (in other words, 1010-xxx), Verizon will bypass your regular long distance provider and connect you to the company associated with the dialing code. The company dialed with the seven-digit code will connect your call, and its charges will appear on a separate page of your Verizon billing statement.
Likewise, if you accept a collect call from someone who uses a different long distance company, those charges will appear on your bill.
If you believe that you have been billed incorrectly, please call the telephone number that appears at the top of the page on which the questionable charge appears. A customer service representative from the company that assessed the charge will assist you.
