One of my frustrating problems with Fios is the remote control; the device has to be pointed right at the box if not it will not work. I switched from Dish Network where the remotes worked with FM signals and I could use it from one room to the other, thru walls, not directly pointed at the box with no problem whatsoever. I think it is time for the best cable company in the world to go back to basics and make everybody happy. Please let me know what you think about the idea.<br>Victor Sacramento Monteiro<br><br>
Please leave all of the episodes on VOD available to watch. I have recommended several shows to friends ie; "The Walking Dead", "Missing", are the two that come to mind. But, when I go to VOD either the Pilot or the first few episodes are missing which ruins the series because I don't want to commit to a show without being able to see how it started.
Currently the DVR begins recording approximately 30 seconds before the actual show begins and ends about 30 seconds before the show ends. Why can't the DVR start/stop times be synchronized with the actual start/stop times of the scheduled shows?
Is there any chance Verizon can change their pricing policy for CableCARD to compete with a policy of that like Comcast's?
This is a big problem for trying to eliminate monthly rental fee's from the bill by purchasing 3rd party devices - TiVo's, PC CableCARD tuners, Moxi, CableCARD TV's, etc...
Comcast doesn't charge for CableCARDs unless you add more than 1 card on the same device.
I think that's the best policy to have because it's not the end user's fault that they have to rent these cards from their provider just because the provider chooses to encrypt the majority of their channels. The customer should not have to pay access fees to use a device that they own with a service that they're already paying for.
If Verizon changed their policy on this to mirror or better that of a provider like Comcast, it would make Verizon FiOS TV even more attractive of a solution for customers trying to get the most out of their TV watching experience.
I checked my availability for fios internet and it doesn't seem to be available in my area could you possibly make your fios internet and other services available in the entire town of Braceville in the state of Illinois zip code 60407??? It really sucks when you're a gamer and either have to use 3g/4g or the only non mobile internet you can get in your area is hugesnet which sucks is even worse for gaming due to it being satellite internet and with mobile broadband (3g/4g) being not much better I heard about fios recently and according to your ads it' really exceptional for gaming with low ping I would really like to be able to have that.
And also while I'm at it I want to ask what are the prices exclusively just to get internet service in order from lowest plan to best plan
Ok, I just set up my FIOS Digital Voice Service. I was able to set up voice mail forwarding to email (.wav attachment) without any problem, and it seems to work fine. I check all voice mail by listening to the email attachments on my smartphone, and I never dial into my mailbox or by logging onto the My Verizon website.
Coming from AT&T, however, there is one thing that I think I will miss - the option to automatically delete those voice mail messages that are forwarded as email attachments. Without that option, my voice mail inbox is going to fill up and I will have to log into the My Verizon site every so often to delete messages I have already listened to.
So, my suggestion is this: In the event the "Attach voice mail in email alert" option is selected, I would love to see an additional option that says "Delete original voice mail".
It's 8PM. I want to see a movie. I rent a 2.5h HD movie for $6.
Now it's 9PM and I'm tired. I hope to finish the movie tomorrow. But ... I can't. The rental is good for 24 hours only. That's ridiculous. Sorry I have to work tomorrow. The earliest I can sit down to finish my movie is 8PM-9PM. By then my rental is gone.

I develop marketing initiatives for clients. Never do I allow a digital component to be released unless we have covered both PC AND MAC needs. This is not hard work, folks!
I see all of these wonderful features being released but most are not compatible with a Mac. For instance:
- I can access Call Assistant but I have to keep checking for new messages, et all. The PC user can download a program that will alert them to new messages. What's up - do you not think Mac users would like the same ease of use?
- Media Manager - I realize a lot of folks are having challenges with this program, I am sure those issues will get sorted. However, as a Mac user, I can only stream music or photos. What I really want to do - stream video - is not part of the Mac program. Why not???
- And the biggest issue by far - no WiFi access for Mac. I just don't get it.
I also don't get that I have to continue paying the same rates as PC users but can't even get access to the services. At the VERY least, until your features are Mac compatible offer your Mac customers a discount until you get the services in line. That would accomplish a couple of things. First, your Mac customers would at least know you appreciate us. Second, the cost of this discount could be incentive to your developers to serve both Mac and PC customers equally. I would bet if there was a shared cost/risk arrangement between you and your developers we Mac users would be better served.
Currently, when the LOCATE ME feature is turned on with, say 3 rings, then the home number rings 3 times, then a "THE PERSON is being LOCATED" message comes on, before the so-called located phone number rings.
Is there a way that we can turn off that message. I think the call-forwarding action should be completely seamless. The caller should not need to know that the call is being forwarded.
I have a close relative who has recently been incarcerated. I would like to stay in contact with him,but recently found out that fios doesn't accept collect calls.I would like to suggest that some time in the near future you add this option like some of your other competitors.
