Re: SunRocket bankruptcy... Anybody else burned? :(

Here's the other trick... I can't confirm this offhand, but reports came out the other day that once you take FIOS phone, you can't go back (to analog... I suppose you could probably switch voip providers). VZW cuts the hard lines, to use matrix terminology. I don't know 100% if that's true, but it seems to be the case.

Damn that means I still have digital phone service all this time?
Any ideas when FIOS will lower prices?
The first year I used it I only paid $30 month.

You know when you get FIOS your phone will be converted as well.
I don't even have FIOS anymore but I still have to keep the battery pack running inorder for my phone line to work.

Negative.  You don't HAVE to get phone service with it.  Just like you don't HAVE to get TV service with it.  It's 3 separate services, just like cable internet/tv/phone.  They just offer discounted packages with all 3, just like cable does.

Personally I don't know why anyone would replace an analog line with VOIP. You really just can't beat the quality and reliability of analog phone lines... especially in a power outage.

If you have FIOS when there is a power outtage your phone line stops working when your battery pack dies. =(

Yep, any VOIP service. I want FIOS badly, for internet. But not for phone. For phone, I don't want any VOIP.

It isn't really a scam or shady or anything of that sort... the company simply went boom. That's what happens when you invest in a startup - sometimes, they go boom. Especially if they're up against massive established companies.

Re: SunRocket bankruptcy... Anybody else burned? :(

I got into their $199 for 2 years deal over a year and a half ago so I got some useage out of the phone but still, kinda shady and I won't repeat the same mistake. Oh, and I can still make outgoing calls on my phone?
