Can't make a call, get "Welcome to Verizon Wireless..."

Re: Can't make a call, get "Welcome to Verizon Wireless..."

I have A Straight Talk Samsung S3 - SPRINT Service. I frequently get the following message, whether I have 0 Bars or 4 Bars of Service - "Welcome to Verizon wireless. Please hold while your call is transferred to an external operator where you should be able to complete your call with a credit card, calling card, or via collect call.".

In December 2013, I contacted Straight Talk telephonically and enrolled in Auto-Pay. In January 2014, Straight Talk turned-off my service for not paying. Gee, why did I enroll in Auto-Pay the month before? This was the first time I ever received the "Welcome to Verizon Wireless ...." message. I addressed the message I was receiving and he said he never heard of this. No resolution offered. In February when I took the leap again and called to enroll in Auto-Pay. I was again told they never heard of this message and it should now go away. Why now? This has not went away, and in honesty has become a nuisance as it occurs to frequently and I cannot make a call. I called twice today and after a lengthy wait while they contacted their supervisor, I was told this will happen and there is no fix at this time. :oops: Why do you not educate you Customer Service Reps that this occurs? It is documented here, and on other Forums on the internet. Can the FCC assist?
