I've been trying for some time to get caller id on my phone line. I have DSL and was supposed to get caller id but they screwed it up. That was well over a year ago. Every single time I call them to try to get the caller id enabled they send out a technician to install FIOS.
I've told them that I don't want fios, that I want my caller id enabled and yet they still send out a technician to install fios.
The company is almost impossible to contact these days and so I've left huge notes on my front door stating, "I DO NOT WANT FIOS! I AM TRYING TO GET CALLER ID! DO NOT INSTALL FIOS!"
If I call them then I get a response saying I need to call another department and so forth and get shuttled all over the place. Using their virtually unnavigable website guarantees a visit from a fios technician.
This company really exemplifies the very worst of what american business has become.
Even their DSL performance is pathetic. Thursdays thru Mondays and on any holiday I get dial up speeds, at best.
I suspect a lot of people who download 'pirated' material thru verizon will never know if verizon is punishing them by cutting back on their transfer speeds.
