I had a verizon Fios Account a few years ago with a roomate. Account has been cloased and the equipement never returned. because during the move it was lost. Paid a the unreturned equipment fee which sucked but it was our fault.


Anyway, I recently found the box. I do not have the old account number but I currently have a An Account under my name.



1. Can I Get credited for this by returning the box.

2. Do I technicall yown the box now since it was a couple years? I'm not returning it unless Verizon gives me my money back.

3. If I do own the box, Can use if for my existing Service without paying a rental fee?

The box is of no use to you. I believe if you return it you will be credited back the money you paid on your account. Make sure you save your receipt.
