Roughly a week ago, I chatted with a rep about getting a STB which will support 2160 (4k) resolution. She mentioned the X1 and during the chat I asked multiple times what charges if any would be associated with changing to the new STB. She assured me multiple time that the only charge would be the $15 to have the new STB shipped and that the X1 is covered as part of the standard packeage. I get the STB pretty quickly, set it up, return the original STB and all is good. BTW I have really enjoyed Xfinity since leaving Fios.
Today I receive an email stating changeds to my account are approved, which I found odd since I didn't authorize any changes. When I login I foind new equipment charges and a DVR service charge per month. I'm now very angry because I tried to avoid this. I get in touch with another rep this evening and explain I have an issue with this entire situation. He explains that she was wrong and that there is a charge for the STB and the service. When I asked him if the service could be disabled as I was never interested or asked for DVR service, he essentially said there is nothing he can do and that now that I have the STb I should just try to use and enjoy it. I expaliend I would be happy to if he waived the fees. He stated this was not possible and that now I would need to take the new STB back to a ser ice center that they would be able to work on refunding the shipping charges.
So in summary, I will now have to be put out by making two trips to remove a service I never asked for only to get thedowngraded service I originally had. I am only looking for support for the beter resolution. Help please???? make me a happy Xfinity customer again please.
