I installed it, took seconds to activate it, and it's working great.

You have to do it on the TV and on the Phone.

Enter the code shown on the phone into the tv.

Then the TV gives a confirmation code, enter that into the phone. Then you can exit out of the TV menus (or reenter to see the status change)

Then the Phone app should go to your tv listing.

I added mine from the internet while sitting here at work and it worked awesome...

 

Well I should say the Verizon Website didn't like Firefox..  After some discontent I used IE and I was able to register and confirm my iphone..

 

Freeking app is AWESOME!!!!!!

 

THANK YOU VERIZON!!!

 

p.s. so is the iphone going to VZW?  No really, you can reply this to thread and I won't tell a soul..  🙂

Anyone want to play the game of suspecting something now that Verizon has released an official app on the iPhone?  Yeah I know this is Verizon and that is Verizon Wireless, but still.  Are we close? Seems like it.

Updated version released today.
Version 1.1.1
Change Log:
* Provisioning Flow has been fixed for iPad and iPhone 0S 4.0 devices.

Also noticed that after I updated, I had to re-run the activation. Did it via the STB, took 30 seconds.

Ok i'm deleting my dvr access, and starting over and putting in the steps. WITH screenshots.

I'm running iPhone 3GS.

 

First of all, make sure you have an account at http://www.verizon.com/fiostvcentral

 

Make sure you have the latest verison of the APP.

Download it here on iTunes and sync your iPhone.

 

I'm connected via WIFI on my iPhone. I suggest you use that, and not 3G data (just for the setup).

 

Launch the App.

Select TV

 

Follow the directions Step 1-4.

 

On the STB, Press: MENU, SETTINGS, REMOTE DVR ACCES, MOBILE DEVICE ACCESS, press OK (if you have parental code setup, enter your PIN).

 

On Step 5 you will get a 10 digit code in RED on the phone. ENTER it into your STB. Press OK, it will say status: Awaiting Authentication.

 

On the Phone, Press next and it will remind you to enter the red numbers. Press OK.

 

Back on the STB look down and find the Confirmation Code (9 digits).

 

Enter it in the Phone and select Login.

 

You're done, the App on the phone should now download your DVR status and TV Guide.

On the STB you can press Exit to get out of the menus.
