Enter New Idea

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.

Status: Launched

Let's do these topics in the Home Networking board. If there's enough discussion on these topics, then we're happy to pull them out into their own forum if needed.

Prune Moved Posts. This may already be happening. But doing a search of moved for greater exposure, 2 years?


They take up as much space as duplicates in the Ideas Forum? But perhaps not. Just a thought.

Adding it to the list of ideas over at Lithium to see if we can get it implemented in the software. It's not a feature right now that I'm aware of.

2012 Olympics

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.

Why IMG 1.9? Why not On-screen Guide?

Status: Already Exists
by custom on ‎01-12-2012 08:34 AM

Especially with the recent changes, info for the on-screen guide should be prominent.  I'm technical, and I wouldn't look to "IMG 1.9" for help with the on-screen guide.


Further, right now, the link for the on-screen guide should be featured, not buried in the Residential Products and Services list.

Lock the thread once voting starts?

Status: Not Likely
by on ‎09-28-2010 04:40 PM

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.

Status: Not Likely
We will keep the discussion open on the main Idea Exchange. We've actually seen some good discussion, and there are often valuable follow-up ideas posted as comments.

If this subject line is only allowed 100 characters, don't let me type past that.

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.

Suggestions for improving the forum look and functionality

Add a Community Favorites to the Category side bar. I did find my floated items when I opened the Forums link in your big picture found here, under the link.




Not as intuitive as if it were the first item listed Under Categories side bar. Where it would expand and show your floated boards.


"Community Favorites" or Just "Community" as shown under the Forums link in the picture above. If it would make the page code change easier.

That is a great idea, Prisaz! Let me look to see how/if we can do that from a development standpoint... Appreciate the feedback!

When is FIOS coming to my neighborhood?

Status: Acknowledged
by turpan on ‎10-25-2012 08:31 PM

I live in Rolling Hills Estates, CA in a neighborhood names "The Ranch" and all around me are neighborhoods with FIOS but mine :smileysad:. 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.

Control Employee Performance

Status: Acknowledged
by netcong on ‎08-21-2012 08:01 PM

Over the last year I have spent a lot of time in the Netcong area.  I am amazed at what I see re: your employees and trucks.  On many days I  see your employees and their trucks parked in the Adam's Bakery and Bagel in Budd Lake up to 9:30am.  When are these employees supposed to start work?  


Recently, I  walked near the Ford dealership near Wiltop Rd., Netcong.  There were 3 trucks parked on the side of the road.  One guy was on a pole working.  One guy was in his truck reading a newspaper.  The 3rd guy was in his truck sleeping.  It was 3pm.  I don't  think they were on their own time.


Yesterday I was downtown Netcong.  3 verizon trucks parked in the Quikchek parking lot.  Coincidence? What was that a koffee klotch?  


We all know labor costs have a direct bearing on phone, cable and other costs.  Who supervises these employees?  What controls do you have in place to monitor employee performance.  We don't have FIOS in Netcong and I was looking forward to it in the next 50 years but I am having my doubts re: possible costs.  


Does management care?

Side Bar for Ideas and Statuses for Idea Categories

Status: Acknowledged
by ‎11-09-2012 05:24 PM - edited ‎11-09-2012 05:57 PM

When displaying an Idea Category, have the Idea Statuses box display the statuses as Idea Category Statuses. Or have it display the Idea Status results for the Idea Category you are viewing.


This way a user can look at the status for ideas in a given category.




Other items are duplicated on the right side bar. Waist of space and not filtered correctly for the Idea category being displayed. Perhaps one box was intended to be the count for the currently displayed category, and the other was for all categories. Or just to see it multiple times as you scroll the page?

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)




  • none

Invest in the Caribbean

Status: Not Likely
by Rusty101 on ‎03-07-2011 04:45 PM

 It would be really create to have a Verizon network here in the Caribbean. My current internet provider is extremely unstable and does not provide the promised speed, while I am using it. If you can set up a network over here I would be extremely happy and I am sure that thousands of other Caribbean who are stuck using this extremely slow network would agree as well

We used to do business in your realm, but exited the region a few years ago... don't see us coming back (but never say never). Sorry.

This is another suggestion about this webpage.

I've had a lot of trouble posting anything to it,  I discovered that you now are prevented from posting a message unless you submit a category (see the area on the right).

Thanks to ornahp, a Moderator who posted about this. 


My suggestion is to include this instruction prominently right where the poster will see it, maybe above the posting window.  I'll bet there are people who have tried to post ideas and gave up, especially after seeing the line about how "a few functions were impacted, including the ability to post new ideas to the Idea Exchange."
