This isn't a specific Droid issue, it's a beef I have with Verizon, but it does piss me off all the same. Just thought I'd share it with you guys and tell you why never to buy a Network Extender. So I bought one thinking "oh great, I have no service at my house, this should clear things up." So I unboxed it and plugged it into my home network. It worked fine and I got great reception; no duh, it's like having a mini-antenna in my house. I went online to read up on how to get Managed Access working, cause you know, I don't want some random person using my bandwidth to make phone calls and any idiot could see that. What I learned was disturbing, to say the least: "Where a compatible cell tower is unavailable, callers that do not appear on your managed access list may access the Network Extender when not in use by priority callers." So "Managed Access" translates to "we're going to let you think you have control over your own internet connection but you really don't and we tucked this little tidbit of information away in the bowels of our FAQ so we're not responsible for anything". I e-mailed Verizon telling them this is ridiculous; would you leave your WiFi unencrypted so everyone around you could use it? I also told them considering the throughput can go up to 240kb/s, that's potentially well over 70GB a month of usage and I bet Verizon would complain if I had Verizon DSL or FiOS and pulled that much data. I summed it up by telling them that this needed to be rectified because it means their users are paying $250 to share their internet bandwidth with the rest of the neighborhood. I never got a response from them (surprise surprise) so it was off to the phone: Me: *explain my case as I did in the e-mail I sent* Rep: "Well, you know, it's not like the whole world can use your internet connection through this, the range is fairly short and I doubt anyone is using up your bandwidth" Me: "I live in New York City so it's not like there are no other homes within range of the Network Extender. Both of my next-door neighbors have Verizon and considering this is a dead zone for your network, they will be pulling off my extender whether they know it or not, whether they want to or not. WiFi also has a range similar to your extender's but Linksys, Belkin, D-Link, and pretty much every single router manufacturer out there provides encryption mechanisms for their product." Rep: *silence* Me: "So what do I do next to get a return?" Rep: "I'll transfer you now *all the have a nice day, I'm sorry we couldn't rectify your problem, yadda yadda tech support speech*" Sorry if this thread is meaningless to most of you; I just wanted to tell you guys, if you have no Verizon reception, don't pay them to be a miniature antenna for your area; just switch carriers (it's what I'm going to do when this stupid contract is over. HTC EVO, here I come).
