I have a dead Rev.A, a Rev. C still in service, a Rev.D, and a Rev.F. in reserve. None are primary.
Staying on topic, VZ isn't the only outfit to charge for lost or damaged equipment. There's the occasional building fire and tornado damage events that expose cable's merciless hearts. At least until the media gets a hold of the story.
But these are people with real losses -- lives, homes.
My DCT700 was one of those free for life deals when analog switched off. I still use it today to feed a slingbox for my 92 y.o. friend who's too cheap for his internet and TV. I give him a wireless freebie. Who cares about PQ when it's free.
