After having my phone number for decades and having everything I own attached to it, Family mobile decided to expire my phone number without telling me about this. In doing so, they switched someone else's phone number to my phone.

After hours on the phone w/ their "customer service" they've explained that I haven't had my phone number since 10/2017 when I purchased the new phone. They have erased my phone messages plus taken my phone messages off my boyfriends phone.

Now I've tried to take the phone to Verizon to start a new service, but Family Mobile has to unlock my phone, that I paid for outright. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! CUSTOMER SERVICE WILL LIE OUT RIGHT AND NOT ASSIST YOU!

I've talked w/ your customer service for 3 weeks, to no avail

AUTHOR: CRYSTAL - (United States)

POSTED: Wednesday, May 01, 2019

I've talked w/ your customer service for 3 weeks now, with no results.  They have explained to me that I haven't had my phone number since 10/2017.  And that there's no other person I can talk to for assistance. 

I've been hung up on, and I've sat there while the phone has just be sat down on someone's desk.  I have been told I'd receive a call back, never heard back.  I have spent hours nightly trying to get this resolved.  Only to be told to call your customer service, who again will tell me I haven't had this number since 10/2017 when I purchased my phone. 

If you google my phone number: 816-537-7614 my information clearly comes up.  If you google the number Family Mobile switched my number with: 816-204-1311 Doug Marshalls information comes up.  

I have been in contact with 3 others that this has happended with and we're discovering that I'm not the only one. One has started talking about a class action.

Can you put me in contact with someone that can assist me?  My licenses, my accounts, my friends are all tied to my phone number.  With all the time I've put in to obtain my phone number back and all the time it'll take to switch everything to a new number, it'll be very time consuming.  

Thank you
