Not crazy about having to dial 10 digits to make local calls, but not a BIG concern.
We've been doing this for a very long time, so no issues there.
I'm very happy with FiOS DV. No reason whatsoever for a traditional POTS line as far as I'm concerned.
Don't care about regulated vs. unregulated - I have multiple cell phones as backups if DV is down (it never has been, btw), and barring that, I can make some phone calls to make things happen at VZ if need be.
Big win for me - save money, works great, and I absolutely love the "voicemail as email" feature...
