Re: Verizon FIOS Battery Backup This is becoming an issue more and more since we are provided equipment that does need some maintenance from time to time. Like a car battery, these battery backups need to be changed. I had a friend who had an APC backup for his computer and was ready to toss it out and buy another one just because the battery died in it after 2 years. I told him all he needed was another battery but even at half the cost, he said he wanted another one. Took his old one, put in a new battery and used it myself.
Face it, if the power does go out, people would still blame Verizon for the service not working because "it used to work when I had a phone years ago."
And I do keep a regular phone on hand just in case the power goes out and I need to make a call. To not do so would be unwise.
