In paying my monthly bill, I was confronted with an announcemen that I had"won" a valuable prize. After some 100 mouse-clicks, I was led down a rabbit-hole of numerous ads and subscriptions, with successive reminders that just one more click and I'd get my reward. This feels a lot like bait and switch, although I'm sure that Verizon, a reputable and multi-billion $$ corporation would not intentionally waste their subscribers' time with such tactics. If these are necessary, please post an early notice that not all subscribers who are announced as "winners" will actually win. Or, preferably, please review these ads with your customer Ombudsman.
Every other message board and website that has a character limit will cut you off if you go past it. As in, I should be physically unable to type character 101 in your subject. You should be embarassed that I need to suggest this.
For your own well-being, pull this ad immediately. I understand you're going for a "green" image. But doing so by picturing 1 guy in a giant wearhouse, during the day (I see 2 well-lit skylights, one of which appears to be directly above the guy), with absolutely *every* light in the house on, just so he can stare at a single tiny windmill? Even the desk-lamps behind him pointing at empty desks are turned on. He is wearing a sweater... makes me think the A/C vent in the ceiling is probably spewing out cold air. Mr. "I hate the earth" Scientist likes wasting power apparantly.
I think that Verizon is a large enough Company to realize that they should recognize our Olympic winners. Especially, the dedicated and talented American women and in particularly the five gymnastic young women that fought with all they had to make America champs. They call these heroes the Fierce 5. The captain of this team, Ms. Alexandra Raisman should be rewarded for her fierce courage in bring this ship home sailing with Olympic gold and American pride.
To many comments. Vote and we get it or don't. I think once a request is made, and voting starts the thread should be locked. I do not know if this is possible while still allowing votes???? Current method of Ideas board ends up just like another thread on another board. Many many comments, and off topic posts. Impossible to moderate, and an over whelming amount of work to maintain.
Perhaps our Lithium folks could tell us. I think this is what is required if the channel voting board is ever created. Administrators' and moderators' comments only based on status.
Windows, Linux, Mac. As a start? With a Clear header that these are user supported boards and Verizon does not endorse or support any one operating system. These could be areas where users could discuss OS issues. Like what used to be in the news groups.
I live in Rolling Hills Estates, CA in a neighborhood names "The Ranch" and all around me are neighborhoods with FIOS but mine . A few years ago I believe Verizon came in and accidentally drilled into an electrical line, and my neighborhood sued them. This may be the reason why FIOS is still not in my neighborhood, but I'm just curious if they really care about stuff like that. I'm dying here it takes me 5 hours to upload 1gb, and 45 minutes to download 1gb, I can't take this anymore it's driving me crazy. BRING US FIOS! I'm about to switch to Cox because I can't handle how slow DSL is, and I have the most expensive one.
Add a Verizon Media Manager Board to the community. Since Flex View, and much of the Media features are being managed by the software, it seems only fitting to add a board for it. This would bring up more discussions, and perhaps promote its use. I know I have tried it, used it and ran into one issue or another. I believe there should be a place to highlight the product and support it. It is a PC software product and has postings buried here or there on the FiOS TV Technical Assistance board or elsewhere.
