I think the widgets need some help. My first suggestion is to make the first widget screen to come up when pressing the widget button is "my widgets" I should not have to go through or look at the preset widgets that someone else has chosen, many of which I have no interest in.
As far as the types of widgets, I would like to see
an internet browser (since it is on FiOs anyway)
check my Verizon bill (and be able to pay it)
well that is all I have at the moment. My thought is if all of these things are available on a cell phone, why aren't they available on an integrated TV/internet/phone system?????
An earlier post mentioned that you were looking for which Arabic channels to include.
Here are some of my favorite ones when I used to have the Dish Network Arabic Package.
Dubai Television (Dubai Satellite Channel)
I think a really, really good Arabic package would have channels that would appeal to all of the major Arabic dialect groups (something from Egypt, something from Lebanon, something from the Gulf (Dubai, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia), something from Iraq) and then perhaps something from Syria.
There is no FIOS service in Bennington Community in Gaithersburg, MD. I know for sure that there is a huge customer base here and currently RCN service charges are much higher as they have no competition. Fibers are there in surrounding areas and for sure expanding here won't even be a huge capital expense. Can somebody wake up in Verizon Business Development or whatever department it is called?
I WILL NEVER install Adobe Flash. There are SO MANY problems with it and with its security holes. So, why not allow me to chech a box, NEVER ask me this question again. The answer is ALWAYS going to be NO!!!!!!!!!!
Even if I did click YES, I am at work. The IT department (Information Technology) automatically blocks all loading of software, and BESIDES, automatically blocks all Flash from coming into the company because it is SO DANGEROUS.
SO, just stop driving me crazy with that hated Flash demand to install Flash.

Since Fios is such a huge company and offers a lot of useful services and features,it really surprises me that they haven't come up with the idea of video communication using your existing TV. When you receive a call, see and talk to the person over your TV. Seems pretty obvious since they already have a service that lets you see the caller ID on your TV. Why not take it one step further?
I am a translator and I currently subscribe to five Fios international channel packages (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian). I would like to subscribe to several more (specifically Chinese, Russian, Arabic and Japanese). Would Verizon consider offering a discount for people who purchase multiple channels/packages or perhaps a megapackage of all the channels for a monthly flat rate (~$150.00 - $200.00)? That would be terrific!
Also, are there any plans to add some more Arabic channels (Dish Network has a more extensive package)?
1. Right now if you try and play a 2nd show from the mrdvr on a different hd box it comes up with a message saying max hd playback reached and to stop the other room. Since mostly everything is available in HD it would be better if the max capacity was 2 HD shows at the same time. Increasing the capacity definitely would make the MRDVR more functional because currently if someone is watching soemthing your only option is to watch from the DVR which anyone with a family knows is not always possible.
2. In the VOD some shows have an end date ( CBS, HBO, Showtime) and then other titles do not list the date which that title is available until. It would be so much better if all titles in the VOD featured the end date. Currently NBC, ABC do not offer this. If its available on Fios TV Central site then why not include that in the VOD info and make it easy for everyone.
Former TiVo and DirecTV user. One feature I really miss is the ability to search using "show types". In particular, I used to have saved searches (that's another thing I miss!) for "season premiere" and "series premiere" so I could quickly scan the guide to see what new shows were coming up. Without this, it is too easy to forget to schedule a show I might want to record. There were lots of other options, like "first run" etc. Being able to narrow search results by various qualifiers would be very useful.
It's been a year since NECN (New England Cable News) began to broadcast in HD.
Last August, your spokesperson, Philip Santoro, was quoted in the Boston Globe saying that Verizon is planning to add more HD channels and that will include NECN. '"We are playing nice in this particular case," said Santoro.'
Why isn't NECN HD available yet? Are you not playing nicely enough? Will you keep you word?
The spam filter for outgoing e-mails needs to be fixed immediately.
It is blocking an ever increasing number of my e-mails.
It seems to eat "reply" e-mails including return-receipt-requested auto-replies with special vigor.
I just copied the contents of a message where I used "reply all" that was marked by the outgoing spam filter as spam to the same addresses from the "reply all" e-mail and that message sailed out without issue.
This has got to be fixed.
It's getting to the point where the e-mail service is unusable.
