The 6xxx boxes MUST GO. IMHO they should go to the recycle grinding mill along with all the QIP-2500. That would get them out of circulation!
Verizon Go Greener campaign? Phase our the oldest hardware QIP-6xxx, QIP-2500, and send them to the electronics recycle grinding mill. After those are gone target the QIP-7xxx that are not Energy Star. Verizon could combine this with their new what ever percent of Energy Star boxes in use that was posted by them on You Tube. I think the percentage is a bit inflated.
We had some bad weather possibly a tornado come through the area in the middle of the night with no way for the weather service to warn residents in those areas. As a recently retired fios tech I know the fios system is remotely addressable and can be sent commands to self check system. I think Verizon could utilize that unit to be a warning beacon at night when residents in bad weather areas are not watching tv or listening to the radio.
How about instead of asking me to give up my one bill per month, you quit sending a mailer of some sort to me every day of the week and every week of the month? I'm sure my one little bill is minimal compared to the thousands of trees per month you send useless advertisements. I bet you could cut the costs of some of your services a little as well if you didn't spend so much money on mailing!! Isn't that a great idea?
Eliminate the need for me to needlessly have 5 boxes using power, generating heat and impacting carbon footprint. My TV's have built in tuners and through your FIOS internet service, I would now expect that I could order on demand services through my internet enabled TV.
For those that don't have internet enable TVs, you can still rent them extra equipment....IF they want it.
Lets be real honest...I have extra boxes needlessly consuming power in order for Verizon to charge me more money. Same goes for Comcast.
Macs need to be supported more they are getting more and more popular they are really good computers verizon should offer more support for them 10.7.1 lion is the newest operating system and it needs support their is the new mac app store and apple even released their own devloper tools called xcode 4 which is free verizon needs to add more products and support for macs and lion lion is $29 and is the most affordable operating system out on the market their needs to be more support for macs and the operating system lion window Cds are way to expensive $199 since macs cant use window upgrades their needs to be more support for the mac and original operating systems not bootcamp.
Thank you for sending a new, working DSL modem to replace the one which was no longer working. I ask you to consider this green option: a mailing label that can be taped to the box which the new modem came in and is then shipped back to your warehouse or recycling center. Many companies are using this recycling method already, such as Amazon, BUymyTronics, and Zappos. The cost to return the old modem to your recycling center/warehouse is negligible compared to the cost of putting a modem in the trashcan.
The telephone switch box at the corner of my block is always being covered by ugly graffiti no matter how often it is painted over. My suggestion is to collaborate with Philadelphia Mural Arts program and have mural artists paint these boxes. This would discourage the vandals and beautify neighborhoods where Verizon's customers live.

My Account / Account Actions, there is order status and repair status.
Add Order History, and Repair History, so we can track when account changes were made, or service repairs were ordered.
I realize repair history may be more difficult, but anything with a repair order number, or account order number for changes, should be accessible to display from a database for the customer.
I am not sure if tech support can see these, or who internally to Verizon can see these, but the customer should be able to see their history, without having to go though months or years of old bills. Perhaps a link to payment history can also be added here, since it is an account action. I know payment history can be found under the Billing, but it would be nice if the account history could be found all in one place for the customer. Depending on how those items are tracked, it may also help Verizon internally.
These changes may even lead more people to paperless billing if they can see their account history more efficiently online, other than going through bills. It would provide more confidence that Verizon has these items tracked in their database, other than just on the monthy bill.
I once had to talk to billing and show one month, and then the following month's bill just to prove that, yes it was there and now it has changed. So I still shy from paperless billing, even though a paper PDF can be downloaded.
Promote that in addition to the ability for downloading an electronic copy of your bill for archiving, account and repair order history is now availible online, and more easily found. Stop your paper, it is no longer required. You can now see a history of any change to your account.
I just now tried to renew my bundle via Live Chat. After 30 minutes of going back and forth, the agent suggested I call Customer Service. I would have done that to begin with had I known it would take so long. I then called the number on a notice I had received indicating that my service agreement was about to expire. The agent I spoke to was very nice, very helpful, and renewed my bundle at a lower monthly payment! However, the notice very specifically included this statement: "Plus, as a special thanks for renewing, you can choose your bonus gift:" When I asked the agent about this, she said no, that didn't apply to me, because it was only if you upgraded or had more expensive services. I pointed out that it didn't say anything like that in the notice, and she rather sheepishly agreed that it was confusing. My idea is actually three: 1) improve the website; 2) avoid fraud and deception (aka "bait-and-switch") in notifications such as the one I received; and 3) increase training for Live Chat agents.
While there may be households that still require printed phone books in this day and age, for Verizon to deliver *two* identical yellow-page books such I received today in a single plastic-wrapped package is an unconscionable waste of resources. Shame on you.
Verizon needs to work on the concept of "householding" and linking accounts.
First some background. My billing address is different than my service address. Additionally, I home office so my company reimburses me for my internet service but of course not my TV - therefore I have my services split into two separate accounts so I get two separate bills - one for my company and one me personally.
Here is the specific problem. Verizon does not seem to be able to connect these two separate accounts in their system or to account for the fact that my service and billing address are different.
Result - they keep mailing me promotional materials to sign up for their services to my billing address which is nothing more than a PO box. I've asked them not to to this and they say they will take care of it - but I still get the mailers. Why - I already have ALL of their services - home phone, mobile phone, TV, and wireless internet modem card. Verizon is wasting money mailing these to me and killing trees in the process to print this stuff.
Please stop - please find a way to fix this. I like Verizon services but this just drives me nuts.
As a Comcast subscriber I would like to know why you feel it necessary to call us "dimwits" in your latest round of advertisements heard on popular radio stations in the Philadelphia area such as KYW 1060.
I had FIOS triple play istalled in December. It didn't take long for a tractor trailer to come along and pull down the wires, ripping them off the side of my house and pulling the FIOS Box with it. This caused damage to my siding and pulled the hooks from the house.
I would think that in today's age you would be able to make a plug connection at the pole and/or the house that would pull apart and not take down the side of the house. It also causes a traffic problem when the wires are left hanging very low over the roadway. In my case the Police Dept just came along and cut the wires. This in itself has to be an expense to run new wires.
When I contacted the service department they were very helpful and uderstanding and had my service repaired the same day.
