Since you only cover the battery for one year of my two year crontract I have to disconnect it now that its beeping. I really don't think someone should have to pay for a battery under the contract.

Verizon needs to be able to look up verizon truck license plate numbers to connect to their cell phone. I was on hold for with verizon for 45 minutes because they didn't know what to do! I WILL NEVER BE A CUSTOMER OF VERIZON AFTER THIS EXPERIENCE. I talked to them about 3 mintues from the 45 minutes I was on hold. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE

I am so sorry- what a frustrating experience for you! I'll work to get this in front of the proper team within Verizon- it's a great suggestion.

Customer Service

Verizon should provide to every customer that call to VERIZON customer service telephone lines a tracking numbers or confirmation numbers as a proof that the inquire/complaint has being entry in the VERIZON system.  This will help the customer in case that he/she will not receive answer to their call.  It is very difficult to wait 15 minutes on line to speak with a customer service representative and at the end of the conversation receive no help at all. 

I am suggesting this because the Verizon representative that I spoke today told me that VERIZON do not have a confirmation or tracking number to give me.

Fix hardware and service cost when you renew

When a customer agrees to renew, they are doing that are a fixed service rate. Verizon should also fix the hardware rate for the term period, and only raise it on renewal.


Since you are locked into the service with penalties for cancelling, you need to know what your cost will be for the enture firm in advance. Either set top rates need to be fixed forf the term, or if Verizon raises hardware rates during your term, you should then have the option of ending your contract with no penalties.

At 5:00 AM on a Saturday, we discovered we had neither telephone service or internet service when my husband got a call on his cell phone from work because he is on call during off-hours.  I called the 800-VERIZON number and WAITED ON HOLD FOR 1 HOUR AND 5 MINUTES before the Technical Support Agent took the call and proceeded to tell me that they were doing maintenance on those two services in my area and that it would be back up and available by 8:00 AM.


Why can't Verizon send out an email earlier in the week to the subscribers in the area that is getting the maintenance to let them know that which services will not be available and for approximately the length of time of the outage?  The banks and the credit cards we deal with always tell us ahead of time that their site is going to be down and then we obviously do not go into those sites during that time.


Or why can't Verizon have a recording that says "maintenance is being done in your area and service is expected to be back at approximately [give a time]".  In that way, callers would hear the message and then hang up without waiting endless minutes to have a Technical Support Agent say this.  Our electricity provider has a recording that states areas that they know there is an outage and this is helpful because customers know that they are aware of the situation and when they expect to have the service back. 


I think it is absurd that you would let a valued customer hold on the phone for 1 HOUR AND 5 MINUTES only to be told information that could have been told previously (in an email) or when they call (with a recorded statement) so that they do not wait on the phone.  Verizon could eliminate some of their calls by providing this kind of information in advance and therefore it would cut down on the calls coming in or the callers staying on the phone to talk to someone.


 I expect to receive an email or a phone call from Verizon to discuss the experience I had as it would totally unnecessary for me to spend 1 HOUR AND 5 MINUTES on hold at 5:00 in the morning.  I could have spent that time sleeping for the upcoming busy day I had.

Your frustration is completely understood. I will share your experience with the Support and Service team.

I have a hundred hours of shows on my DVR, and vios has been out for the last 8 days. I had an appointment today between 8am and 9pm to restore my service but its 8:09 PM and Im not hopeful.    The box won't boot withuot a signal from verison, so even though there is a TON of stuff I could be watching, its not possible.  There should be a way to access stored information on the DVR durring service outtages.

Last night at 12:15 right in the middle of a good program, my DVR reboots. OK I get to miss about 5-10 min of the program. I understand at times it is required to force a reboot, but why and when? How about a message that the STB needs rebooting, and let the customer do the reboot after the program?:smileymad:

Status: Under Review
not sure that was us; sometimes they do reboot on their own. If it was us please accept our apologies.

Put yourself in the shoes of any customers.  When your services are down and you're working and have responsibilities, would you appreciate being told that you have to wait and be around all day at home from 8AM-5PM for a tech to come to your house?  I don't personally know of anyone who honestly has the time or the patience for that and when that happens, I don't know which kind of inconvenience is worse: not having the services or having to sit home all day just for someone to come and repair the problem itself.  It's very inconsiderate and I'm not blaming these CSRs for only having access to all day appointments in their system.  It's poorly managed and I am sure that techs are on a schedule of locations.  There is no logical reason why we, customers, cannot be at least given a 4 hour time frame to work with.  Expecting customers to sit home and wait the whole day is unacceptable and unreasonable!   


And I find sometimes that when I request a time frame, the CSR will be put me on hold 3 times sometimes while instant messaging someone in the dispatch department only to find that I can't even get an answer to my question.  I don't know about you but my time is limited and valuable. 


Listen to your customers and please do something about this.  It's very unfair and just because we don't have the luxury of being able to quickly change providers doesn't give Verizon the right to take advantage like that.  Verizon is a good product and I don't dispute that in the least but from a customer service perspective, I feel like Verizon doesn't care by only giving customers all day appointment times.

I'm not sure this is where my idea and/or complaint should be placed but, I placed it here because Verizon dosen't make it clear where else this should be done.


I am a loyal Verizon customer. Every way I communicate whether it through the Internet, TV, Home phone, Cell phones, Business phones, it is through Verizon. I might add that I'm happy with the services.


What I'm not happy with is the customer service. For a month and a half now I've been trying to upgrade my home DVR to the new Motorola STB. I started by contacting Verizon Fios Customer Service. I was told I had to order it online and that I could do thatfrom the "My Verizon" page. I couldn't. I then re-contacted Verizon Fios Customer Service and asked what the website was. I was told I needed to order the STB from a Verizon Plus Store. I went to the Verizon Plus Store and was told I could only order it online. I asked for the website address in which I could make this order and was given the address. This address tells you it doesn't work anymore and options that take you to the new service ordering page at Verizon. I finally got fed up and called the Verizon new service phone number where, I finally got a hold of a Verizon employee that had great customer service sense. He told me I could order this box because they were out of stock from Motorola and wouldn't have any of the new STB's until March. He told me the website to order it didn't work because they were out of stock.


Here is my idea. Verizon tell you're employees to just be honest with your customer from the beginning! The last person I talked to realized I was a good customer, willing to PAY for what he gets and just needed to be told the truth.


Wake up Verizon, **bleep**-ing your customers especially, you're good customers is totally unnecessary. Think about your good customers (ones that exclusively use you and you only) and do your best to keep them, good customers.


I run a business myself and not only do my good customers get treated well they are given discounts for their loyal and exclusive business.


This experience has left me paying more attention to the competitors offers.


Just a thought from a good and loyal customer who would just a-soon stay one.

Outage notifications

I have previously signed up to be notified of outages.  Recently I received two alerts, one via email and one via text message.   Both alerts told me that I could go to to request outage alerts.


Why?    If I am already signed up to receive alerts provide information on the outage. Telling me I can sign up to get alerts is pointless.  Why not tell me what is wrong?  And hopefully provide a estimate of when it will be fixed.

*Keep your system up 24 hours a day so that those of us working days can actually get some help at night

*Use screen names and call back IDs so that we can talk to the same person when you inevitibly disconnect us

*Adjust your system so that your employees can actually read the notes left by others across the board

*When an employee says they will call someone back, hold them accountable when they do not

*Train your employees to follow through

    You are wasting money on these phone books.  1/5th of the listings in this recent book (received yesterday) are either no longer in service or the company no longer exsist. Before you waste stockholders money on printing these books you need to have someone locally for all the businesses listings dial each and every one individually to ensure that they are correct. The problem with these books and it isn't just yours is that no one verifies the listings. I have looked up a few companies this past year in your previous book and three out of five were no longer in service. Should you need someone to waste hours/days dialing and speaking to each of these businesses I will be happy to help.

I am wondering if Verizon has any plans to support IPv6 on FiOS and DSL even as a public beta before World IPv6 day.


Verizon Business has been quoted in Network World as participating. So far, Comcast has made you all look really bad regarding IPv6 support. They've done public trials, while Verizon has done just a tiny little employees-only trial.


If this is such a new and advanced network compared to the cable companies, why should it be hard for you to enable FiOS and  DSL for IPv6?

FiOS wireless settings shown with In Home Agent(Support) without parental controls pin.


Restrict access to this information at the TV STB/DVR. Make a PIN number entry required for this information.
