Hey Ford, it's good that you switched from Ace-resold FiOS to regular Verizon FiOS when you did.

Verizon is ending their FiOS reseller programs. You would have had to switch over along with everyone else.

so I know I have to spend an hour on the phone with verizon but I thought maybe one of you guys would know.
If I tried to port my landline (fios attached) phone number away, is that going to screw up my fios?
I imagine it would becuse they drive off billing telephone number.

Dunno but I'd love to find out. Maybe our friends at Ace know.

that probably would have gone much easier than what I went through.

Well it was only about 40 minutes and they say it's not a problem. I can pull my number away and it will magically unbundle and my account will still be there in whole or part.

I'm interested in knowing what you end up paying for FiOS Internet + TV without the phone service. I'd switch my phone back to Ace without hesitation if the price was right.

me too, I'll let you know. I think when I asked they said $66 or $86 but their quotes are meaningless until I see the final bill with all the taxes fees and surcharges.

When they do the bundle pricing, the Internet portion of the bill seems to be where they apply the bundle discount (you certainly won't see $15 for 25 Mbps by itself).

maybe the marketing people already see the writing on the wall that everything will be running over ip eventually.

Ironic that you mention that today ... right now some l33t hax0r from Canada is trying to hammer my Asterisk server with SIP registration attempts.

iptables & tarpit

I did use iptables to drop them at the firewall. No big deal.

That's no fun. Redirect all their traffic to 1man1jar.com.

SIP traffic?

[#] Fri Jul 09 2010 13:12:50 EDT from Ford II @ Uncensored

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

surely there's a SIP response packet that refers to a URL. Isn't SIP an http offshoot?

Parts of it are very HTTP-like, but it runs over UDP. You can probably issue something resembling a referral, but most phones wouldn't know what to do with it.

If I really did want to mess with them, I could program my Asterisk to accept one of their registration attempts, then when they start trying to make calls, send all calls to the destination of my choice (or better yet ... Animal's choice).

Unfortunately that would get rid of them pretty quickly. I'm sure what they really want is to access a trunk line and use it to sell "heavily discounted" international calls to illegal immigrants and drug dealers.

why not route them to the fbi? although that would probably get you in trouble more than them.

I could route them to the rejection hotline, I guess. But they're already gone now.

T-Mobile has started pre-announcing the G2, a new HSPA+ phone that may even have a dual-core processor in it. This could be interesting.

Of course, AT&T and Verizon keep insisting that "the only true 4G technologies are LTE and WiMAX" but we all know that's just a bunch of marketing gobbledygook.

I wonder if they'll offer attractive upgrade pricing for G1 subs.
