How to Cancel Verizon Cell Phone Service after the Contract is Up
You can cancel your Verizon Wireless cellular service even after you’ve signed your contract. Verizon charges no penalty in doing so. However, you cannot cancel the Verizon service over the Internet. The only way to cancel the cell service is by contacting the company via phone or in-person. The service will be canceled at the end of your next billing date. This is done to prevent overage charges due to pro-rated minutes.
- Contact Verizon Wireless customer care by phone at 1-800-922-0204. You can also dial *611 from your Verizon Wireless phone or go into a Verizon Wireless store.
- Talk to a rep and provide your account’s password or your picture ID.
- Inform them that you wish to cancel your service. You may be asked to provide a reason for cancellation, or the rep may try to sell you a new contract.
