Why was FIT TV channel removed? I used to do the yoga each morning and the belly dancing and then exercises during the day and nite whenever I had the time. There are now hundreds of channels of silly TV shows, but FIT TV , which was for one's health had to be removed????????????? Please bring it back now!!! Im very upset about this.
The FiOS TV Set Top Box (STB) has a particular programming set up for the TV guide that is bulky and not conducive to quickly finding information. Currently, your STB guide shows about 6 channels with a maximum time window of 90 minutes, and I feel this is insufficient to make a decision on what to watch. The TV guide formatting used by DirectTV might be considered more of a benchmark for a better setup for the STB interface (although it is not perfect either, just better). In the meantime, rather than reinventing the wheel, It is my deepest desire you consider the following:
Considering that the guide information is already digitized, how about offering an online version of the guide that would provide a user determined three hour block of time for about 20 channels per window view that a user could scroll through.
If Verizon advertises something in the brochure-live up to it. The brochure says Etreme HD package receives ALL HD channels in Select and Prime HD. I have Extreme but cannot get Hallmark Movie Channel (739HD). I am told I must upgrade to get this, but brochure advertising says I am supposed to have it. No one seems to be able to help.
I just switched last week from Cablevision to Fios. The thing I really miss from Cablevision that Fios should have is the HD boxes with the time on them and the a button to change the date on the guide instead of having to scroll through each day to get to a future day. Another item I wish Verizon would change is that we signed up for a 2 year contract but the price is only guaranteed for one year. If Verizon wants people to sign a 2 year contract they should fix the price for 2 years.
I believe AntennaTV and CoziTV should be on the Metro Philadelphia basic list. Family in Queens (New York City) has it, and our market is large enough to support it. So why are we deprived of these (and other "Classic TV" stations.
This is unfair and needs to be corrected/updated. There are large numbers of people that would patronize these stations BECAUSE of their programming
Speed Dial 100 needs a pause function. I rely on my fast Fios connection when working from home, but I need to be able to access my office voice mail quickly and seamlessly. To do so, I need to program my company voicemail number, then a pause, then my voice mailbox number and access code. Inability to pause means many more key presses (at least 10-15) just to access my messages. This slows down my work flow and delays my responses to clients. Many other speed dialers offer a pause function. Any chance Fios will catch up with this key feature?
I find it incredible that Verizon does not permit Apple products to access its wi-fi hotspots. If the company insists on using a proprietary program (which in itself is outdated and creates unnecessary coplexity), then there is simply NO EXCUSE for not making it available for the range of Apple devices. I have searched the forums and found Verizon employees repeating the statement, "An apple compatible solution is in the works, but no eta"--- for OVER TWO YEARS. I literally heard that exact same line from Wi-Fi technical support 10 minutes ago. Well, let me say that at this point repeating that statement is a pure and simple LIE. It is an insult to your customers to continue to claim you are working on a solution when nothing has been released for years.
Here is my idea -- solve the problem!! If you are going to advertise and promise Fios customers that they will have access to Verizon hotspots then you have an obligation to do so for all customers. If the concern is that all of your Verizon wireless customers with iPhones will use wi-fi instead of their data plans, then deal with that issue instead of making wi-fi inaccessible to Fios customers. If you do not intend to provide any solution for Apple products then just say so instead of continue to perpetrate this lie.
How about a social forum where Verizon users can share their interests? Add topics like a 'town hall', 'coffeeshop' (where people can share about what;s going on in their lives), Music, Sports, Science/Technology, pets, TV shows, pictures, favorite books/novels, and a forum for those of us in recovery? It would be cool to connect with other Verizon subscribers!
WHAT WE NEED ON THE SYSTEM IS DIGITAL VOICE BOXES , SO I CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE IN BOX 302 AND WHEN YOU CALL, YOU DIAL 302, AND YOU CAN HEAR WHAT I HAVE TO SAY! THEN U HAVE THE OPTION OF LEAVING A MESSAGE FOR ME, OR HANGING UP. THE SYSTEM WILL HAVE THE CALL TIME/DATE/CALLER ID STAMPED AND I CAN RETURN THE CALL IF I WANT TO, OR NOT!! THERE SHOULD BE ABOUT 50 BOXES AVAILABLE FOR MY USE. THIS CAN BE AN EXTRA CHARGE FOR THIS FEATURE, BOTH FOR RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL USERS.
THE PROGRAMMERS NEED TO WORK ON IT!!
ALSO, TOTAL CALL VOICE RECORDING, A WAY TO RECORD THE ENTIRE CALL ON DIGITAL, WITH THE TIME/DATE/CALLER ID STAMP, AND IT CAN BE SENT TO ME IN MY E-MAIL, AND I CAN LISTEN TO IT AGAIN, E-MAIL IT, OR DELETE IT. IT WORKS ON ALL OF MY CALLS, OR HAVE SOME WAY TO TURN IT ON AND OFF AT WILL WHEN I AM ON THE PHONE. LIKE A MEMO TAKER, SO I DON'T HAVE TO WRITE ALL THE THIS INFORMATION DOWN WITH A PENCIL AND PAPER!!
TIME FOR SOME HANDY FEATURES ON FIOS TELEPHONE, OR GET THE PHONE ALL TOGETHER AND LETS GO PHONE ON THE MONITOR, WITH VIDEO AND AUDIO BOTH , AND HAVE IT OVER WITH. THE TIME HAS COME, ITS 2013! THATS WHAT WE ARE PAYING THE BIG BUCKS TO VERIZON FOR !! THANKS!
I don't know if this is appropriate to post but when I was with Dish they had over 20 "adult" channel options available where in Verizon we only have I believe 2. Is there a way we can get more of these channels?
Web mail is fine for phone use but has many limitations for home use. While TV picture and sound is 1st rate, house phone is fine but mail kills this whole setup. Dark ages as far as email goes with zero support for anything other than MS products. This is killing the whole package for me as I save things on MY computer plus we both use Windows plus Android. We may not make the 30 days because the mail system is so bad or may just cut internet and go back to RR, don't need the speed but we do need REAL email.
My idea would be to post setting for many email programs, not just MS products.
