oKAY, i AM READY TO GO BACK TO OPTIMUM.. THE ONT IS BEEPING AND BEEPING..CALLED TECH SUPPORT AND ADVISED HAVE HAD FIOS 1 1/2 YEARS THEY SAY I NEED A NEW BATTERY AND TO CALL ANOTHER NUMBER. IF IT HAD BEEN UNDER A YEAR THEY WOULD HAVE REPLACED IT FREE. CALLED THE NEW NUMBER AND THEY WANT $46.00 AND $10.00 TO SHIP THIS TO ME. ARE THEY OUT OF THEIR MINDS? i IMMEDIATELY CALLED EVERYONE I KNOW WHO HAS THE FIOS TO INFORM THEM OF WHAT THEY CAN EXPECT..SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING GO BACK TO WHERE I STARTED WITH OPTIMUM, IN THIS DAY AND AGE WHO CAN AFFORT TO SPEND $56.00 EVERY 1 1/2 YEARS. ALSO AFTER LOOKING ON LINE IT SEEMS THESE BATTERIES SHOULD ONLY COST $20-30.00, SO WE GET RIPPED OFF ANYHOW.

Hi, you don't have to purchase the battery online. You can go to any store like Radio Shack and purchase one for much cheaper.

Where online were you looking? Maybe you could purchase the battery from one of those places.
