How to Get Verizon FiOS Without Getting Verizon's Phone Service
By Greyson Ferguson
Verizon FiOS is a fiber-optics entertainment system that brings in not only television programming, but Internet and telephone service. However, you are not required to use or connect all of the options available to you, including the phone option. Without the phone service, FiOS is still going to function correctly with the Internet and television programming.
Contact Verizon FiOS (1-800-837-4966). This is the direct Verizon FiOS telephone number.
Request to sign up for the Verizon FiOS service. You are asked for your current zip code. This is desired, as Verizon FiOS is not available in all areas.
Pick out the service package you want. This includes the speed of your Internet and the number of channels available. Here you must state you do not need the phone service. The base price is not going to change, but it informs the service technician on the needed equipment for installing the hardware.
Select a desired day and time frame for installation of the Verizon FiOS service. Your Internet and television programming are then installed, without the phone option.
