• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

I've had FIOS for over a year. The first couple of months we lost service twice...and when it went down, it stayed down until the technician came into work the next day. I was probably one of the first in the neighborhood to get it, so maybe that had something to do with it. The phone service is on it as well, so when it goes down, it all goes down.

The phones in the house hook up just like always, so no change there.

They install a battery backup, so if you lose power you still have phone service. One time our whole neighborhood lost power, and I still had internet for a little while!

Only a few cities have the FIOS TV service; I'm not in one of those cities. There's a lot of TV regulation that Verizon has to deal with, so that's moving slowly. Some customers who got it indicated they were satisfied. I'm not sure they're going to be moving forward with HD as fast as DirecTV, though.

As far as HD goes, Dish Network has the largest number of HD channels, followed by DirecTV and then Verizon FiOS. If we don't get FiOS TV, we'll get a dish. Comcast is officially the worst cable/ISP I've ever seen, and we only have it because they bought out Adelphia.


But you're pleased with the speed, the reliability, and Verizon's service?
