Import Verizon Cellphone contacts into Verizon residential WiFi account

Import Verizon Cellphone contacts into Verizon residential WiFi account

 

I would like to easily import my Verizon cellphone contacts (kept online) into my Verizon residential WiFi (e-mail) account, then add my several e-mail accounts to that set (several bump 5000, so I would need a 'bank' or storage potential over perhaps 15000, then have AI (artificial intelligence) sort through them and suggest duplicates (but allow me to clean them up and to keep them in one place - my Verizon e-mail account).

I don't want merely the option of copying one over the other, but rather some way of seeing them side-by-side and moving key information from the more robust records into one common record. 

 

[Also, why does the Verizon spellchecker NOT recogize these words: 'cellphone' and 'WiFi"?]

I was approached by a guy named Dave at Best Buy in Newark,he offered me phone and internet with comcast double play, I asked verizon to match it and they said no, phone and internet at comcast for 34.99 a month before tax's of course. Tell Verizon to change and match it before they loose customers.

Better internet service

I note with some disgust that a year after announcing Verizon Wifi hotspots for subscribers, Mac is still unsupported as are handheld devices like ipads, ipods, and wifi enabled cell phones.   Comcast, on the other hand is offering a similar deal to internet customers with no such limitations, proving it isn't a tech hurdle.

 

The elephant in the room is the fact that Verizon also  has a moile phone business which charges high rates for data access on the move; useful wifi access for internet customers away from their desks would cut in on that lucrative business. The conflict of intererest is hurting its other customers.  Unless the two business arms are separated, Verizon will always have a strong disincentive to offering quality, accessible wifi to its internet customers.  After many years avoiding Comcast (waiting for Fios that may never come?), I am finally considering the alternative attractive.  Comcast doesn't have a cell phone business that would be hurt by easy wifi access;  Verizon's "service" will always be little more than a sick joke.

On July 15, 2012, I was having trouble connecting to WI-FI and an extremely patient and competent technican helped me.  I want to personally give Kudos to Katrina {edited for privacy}.  She was extremely helpful, patient and knowledgeable.  I continue to have great confidence in Verizon because of the extremely competent people that you hire to work for you.  KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK KATRINA!!!!

correct problems

Over the years I dreaded calling for tech support because I could not understand the technicians nor could they understand me. I was forced to call for assistance because of a problem. This time I chose to "chat" with the technicians, No more problem!! I could read their instructions and the problem was solved. No accent or dialect problems.(even though  I could not pronounce his name). I would suggest that we all start CHATTING.

there is also Twitter (@verizonsupport)... couldn't agree with you more... my fav for getting support is chat on www.verizon.com/support and twitter...

Fios at my house

Status: Acknowledged
by Casen on ‎05-01-2011 02:06 PM

Hi,
    I recently moved up to Andrews AFB, Md and was extremely interested in getting Fios at my house. Unfortunately, I was saddened to discover that Fios is not available at my house on base. I was disheartened even more when I learned that the newer houses on base (built within the last few year) do, infact , have Fios. I am not able to move into these newer houses, and would love to get Fios.

      How would I go about getting the cables run from the newer houses (which are about 200 feet behind my house) to the houses in my area?

Status: Acknowledged
There is really nothing you can do... we build where we can... there is probably an engineering reason or a restriction from the base as to why your residence doesn't have FiOS.

Verizon Homepage Offensive Advertising

Status: Acknowledged
by walnuthill on ‎04-30-2011 09:40 AM

I have been using this start page for my verizon account for many, many years. I have been very satified with its content until the past few months. The creepy animated photo of old men selling morgage refinance that is running on this page is offensive.  I have been trying to indure, in the hope the ad time would expire.  Please give me a option as a verizon customer of many many years to either remove or block this ad.  The homepage I am refering too is http://headlines.verizon.com/headlines/portals/headlines.portal

 

Thank You

Stop Search Redirection

Status: Maybe Later
by JerseyFresh on ‎04-13-2011 04:54 PM

I have recently noticed that my URL entries are now being redirected to a Verizon search page. I am not the only one who does not want this. I have changed my DNS server to one of the top level DNS servers so I am not affected by this now, but there are many people who do not know how to do this even though its not hard. Maybe you could put a tutorial on the site directing how to go about changing this. I will post one on my site. Just a thought

cat6 will run faster from the main box to inside the home. also the newset router verizon is using needs to be updated to the latest version. to handle the 150/60 speeds. the customers are paying for the best, we should get the best. i know verizon can handle that.

The Calico Farms Community has been waiting for Broadband or DSL forever.  We get mobile broadband, but this gets very expensive.  Verizon has a tower about 2 miles from this community and I am sure they can leverage that tower to provide all their services to this community.  Most if not all residents would then use them for everything.  Most already use Verizon Wireless.  Why not get the landlines, cable, and most importantly the internet.  This is an opportunity for everyone to win.  If they do not believe me, come to community and I can promise you will get big commitments from Calico Farms and surrounding communities.  Come on Verizon, you have made a huge investment in the community by building a call center here.  Reach out and grab the majority of the market share by being there for everyone in the Midlands area.

Our focus for the near term is to build more homes in the communities we already serve.... before adding new communities...

Here's something that has come to mind for pretty much any company that still sells DSL today. While I'm sure Verizon will toss the idea away as it breaks established network managing policies, it would be pretty cool to see a company such as Verizon implement the ability for people to change speeds on the fly, even on residential accounts if they wished to have more speed, regardless of the equipment they are going through but still within the physical limits of the equipment (eg; DSL technology and sync rates, edge router profiles). In an area such as mine that has been rejected for first-stage FiOS built-outs, it would mean keeping the DSL network in some form of competitive positiion now that Cable is pretty much scooping up people left and right.

 

I've outlined my idea in my blog since it's pretty wordy, so here's the link to it if you want details on what I've got to share. It's simply an open thought to consider for the company for the DSL service while they hopefully consider expanding FiOS out to areas such as mine full of people willing to pay for it.

 

My Blog Entry (http://blog.seansite.dyndns.org/?p=358)

 

So to wrap this idea up, yeah, I know it isn't practical and it's going to cause some headaches for anyone reading the idea, but it's about time we try something new and actually innovative. Many people I'm sure would love this ability, and as defined in the last section of my post, we would rather pay for a cheap, best effort service that has the occasional slow-down than to fork up a couple hundred thousand dollars just to get a service that can be delivered to us already through conventional means.

Why does it take an act of GOD to get your email transferred if you move????

It is not in the best interest of the customer to require technical support just because you relocate.  I had to call 7 times over a 24hr period to get my email transferred to my new account after moving into my first home.  After going thru the annoying prompts to only be connected to someone who then puts me on hold for 20 minutes is not increasing my loyalty to Verizon.  After my call was dropped, I called back for the 2nd time tonight only to be connected to someone who says they don't handle this but will transfer me to email tech support only to sit in silence for 10min before giving up.  Call number 3 I reached someone named Anthony and explained to him my frustration only to be put on hold again for about 20min before my call was again dropped.  Call number 4 I immediately asked for the manager.  This time I was helped after 41 minutes of reloading and registering for Verizon DSL (which was already installed on my computer since I ONLY MOVED).  Although the last tech seemed to help resolve the issue (still waiting out the 15min he told me I would have to wait before his manager could re-direct my email) I still never was allowed to speak to a manager.  Overall- this process needs to be much smoother and your focus on good customer service needs to be greatly improved on.  In this day and age no one can afford to be without email for 2 days because Verizon can't link one account with another in a smooth manner.  I take customer reviews very seriously when deciding which companies I will give my business to.  I can assure you- this experience with Verizon will be posted on every website I visit that allows customer reviews of Verizon.

I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced in your move and transfer of emails. We will investigate this issue further and work to close the gap that caused the problem. Thank you for your candid feedback.

I know you are corporate conglomerate like the rest of the tv providers. More and more tv is going to on demand and on the internet. I'm sure most cordcutters wouldn't mind paying $20-30 more a month if those certain channels you do have were available web only. I'm not talking about your live TV streams but your on demand stuff. 

 

TV is changing and people are watching shows in a non traditional manor. 

 

Positives for you

 

  • 100% profitable 
  • Fewer service calls (most users doing this are tech savy)
  • Additional profits from allowing subscriptions to premium channels
  • No equipment in the customer's home 
  • Additional customers asking for the service (no one else is doing it)

 

Negatives

 

  • none

FiOS CPE Link Qualification

Status: Already Exists
by kspinka on ‎03-05-2011 04:03 PM

The technical support is non-technical, including the "network escalation group".  I'm sure that somewhere at Verizon, the people who designed this network know what nominal ranges are achievable and expected.  Considering that Verizon deploys heavily customized CPE devices, there is no excuse for not having auto-selftest functionality to qualify a new install and then continuously monitor the quality of service that is being delivered.  This would eliminate at least 50% of the truck rolls, and I can't imagine why it's not being done.

 

To give you some examples, I have techs here working on Internet issues whose managers think that 50ms of latency to the first hop aggregation router is acceptable.  I wonder how the chief engineer/architect of the FiOS service would feel if he knew that the service delivery was so far below design-spec and capability of the technology.

VZ In Home Agent software on your computer and set top does more and more every month.around this realm...

Simply put, Verizon High Speed Internet is available where I currently live, but FiOS is not. I find it odd, that only some of the services is available in this area, while the one that is advertised heavily on TV and claiming to be in my area is very much not.

Status: In Progress
FiOS will pass slightly more than 18M homes by early next year. We are adding many homes this year ... hopefully you are one of those homes... if not, have you considered moving ... I heard Rhode Island is lovely in the summer and that Dallas has pretty great BBQ :smileywink:
