Our phone hasn't been working well lately. Every time we tried to call someone, there was so much static on the line, we couldn't hear what anyone was saying. We called Verizon twice, and they said there was nothing wrong with the phone. Finally, Dad sent in a request for a technician to come by online. They were supposed to come Monday night, but didn't come until this morning. The first person didn't know what was wrong, so he had to get someone else to look at it. That man left a little while ago, saying it was there cables. I just got a call from Verizon saying they had fixed the problem. I'm so happy. I can Mylot again!

Wonderful! Actually, I am suffering from a proble, something like that you talked but the defference is that I still can not work it out. That is, every time when I begin to surf online the problem as you mentioned will happen on my telephone and after I shut off my computer, it will disappear. I think it is because a conflict always happen between the signals of the net and the phone so i have got used to using the mobile phone instead of the fixed phone

I couldn't stay online, either. Like you said, as soon as I got offline, the static left, but it always came back after a couple minutes. I hope your problem gets fixed soon.

Ours went like this recently, it was a pain because I could not make any phone calls or anything and it was interfering with the internet a lot too. Luckily it just turned out to be the connection box and we were able to fix it ourselves.

That is great. That is odd that they claim to tell you nothing is wrong with the phones when they could have easily checked and realized the cables were a problem. I guess they try to save that trip so they don't need to pay for it unless customer insists and call someone to come out and get it done.

At first they wanted us to pay ninety dollars, but when they found that it was their own fault, they said we didn't have to pay it.

I'm glad it is working again. I've only been on here for a few minutes a day, since it kept cutting me off. I'm glad to finally be back. Thank you.

It's good to hear that you got your problem resolved. I was useing veizon a few months ago but endedup changeing services because I had the same problem as you were but mine was constant and verizon said it was fixed when it wasn't. I am now with comcast and much happier better service and no static I hope this dosn't happen to you again and good luck.

Welcome back! Its good to hear that they finally came out and fixed it for you. I always hate having to get phone companies out because half the time they try to blame it on you not their own stuff.

They tried to say it was our fault at first, but they finally realized it wasn't.

I am happy for you!! We had trouble with the internet and it took someone coming out 3 times before I finally got someone to actually fix it.

Good thing you got it fixed. I guess you meant that your cable connection was not working. Where you using dsl or cable? Sometimes the cable wears out after some time and you have to watch to see if none of the cables get twisted or broken. That happened to us, but it was the one to the keyboard of our computer. I cannot understand why that kept you from myLotting though.
