    I have Verizon service for my home land line and Comcast for my internet. I'm considering switching to Verizon fios for internet and phone. I wanted to find out if people have been happy with the Verizon phone service. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    thanks!

    Phone service has been very good on Verizon. One thing I miss, having Comcast prior, is the ability to get an email notification of new voice messages and ability to go to the web site and listen to them. Maybe Verizon does this too...I just haven't had time to look into it yet.

    That's one of the main reasons I kept Vonage when switching over to FiOS for TV and Internet.

    Plus Vonage will now let you prepay a year, saving about $5 a month.

    I have FiOS but opted to get Vonage instead of FiOS phone service. Vonage provides all the features I want far cheaper than Verizon.

    And getting my voice mail via email is great!

    No, FIOS has this feature, not sure when they implemented...

    You need to setup Password/PIN for your voicemail and check online.

    In my case, I forgot the PIN and couldn't check voicemail online. I need to call their support and reset it soon.

    Yesterday (5/7/09) we had the second "total" outage with FIOS, in about 6 months. Internet, phone and TV were all down.

    A fiber line was cut, according to the customer service guy I talked to. I was back up around 10pm.

    Huh. I live in Ashburn Village and it was all fine over here. I suppose it's a localized thing.
