To date a friend has been unsuccessful in having SafeLink Service Support resolve the problem and would now like to change to another LifeLine provider.
The problem is he still has almost a year left on his contract.
My friend checked the FCC website https://www.fcc.gov/lifeline CONTACT US http://www.usac.org/li/tools/contact.aspx which mentioned "If your telecommunications company has not yet resolved your issue… Please contact your state public utility commission, which has jurisdiction over telecommunications companies." so he emailed his problem to New York Public Service Commission and received "we are unable to assist you in this matter...can be directed to the Office of Attorney General" but did not give a contact person or email address.
He then checked New York State Attorney General website http://www.ag.ny.gov/ but did not find a way to file a LifeLine Cell Phone complaint.
By this time he was extremely frustrated and I agreed to help. I have checked the Internet but have not found any mention of how to file a LifeLine complaint with the New York State Attorney General?
Would be nice if someone who has done this would provide instructions concerning how to file a LifeLine Provider complaint in New York State which seems to be different from most other states.
Product or Service Mentioned: Safelink Wireless Phone Plan.
