    So we've established that you're just here to troll at this point.

    LOL. I don't even like Verizon that much.

    Actually neither.

    You should try actually reading my posts. Of course you don't want to since you're just trolling.

    Well, it's not hard to believe the earth is flat if you believe that T-Mobile has more coverage than Verizon. Stupid people believe lots of ridiculous things.

    Dude, your trolling is just lame at this point. You just keep lying over and over and over, even though everyone else knows that what you're saying is patently ridiculous.

    If "trolling" truth to the Verizon fanboys is what you're talking about.... then guilty as charged.

    OMFG.... you're trolling like Verizon fanboy #1..... it's sad to read how much they've brainwashed you.

    You keep telling yourself that.

    I need to put boots on to get through the pigpen of your Verizon trolling. Lies, lies & MORE lies! Stop believing everything Verizon is telling you...

    That sounds like a personal issue that you need to work out with yourself. I deal with facts, and the fact is T-Mobile has more coverage than Verizon. (Another fact is that not everything that Verizon mails you is factual... especially when they're losing thousands of members to T-Mobile each quarter.)


    I don't mind putting Verizon fanboy trolls in their place when they start to lie. T-Mobile is the better network, and I have no issues putting you in your place to... educate you.

    Oh, and once again, you're welcome. :)

    Well, I guess the only way to move on is to block the offenders.

    Thanks Ted! I got the same message on a still-active HD unit. If I recall correctly, I've never connected a TiVO box of any type via dial-up, as there's no phone jack anywhere near the TiVo/TV location. I would remember running a 50' cord across the floor, as the wife would have wrapped it around my neck.

    Then step up and actually deal with the troll instead of complaining about it.

    Posting ridiculous lies like claiming that T-Mobile has more coverage than Verizon is trolling. I can't tell how much of this is just pure trolling and how much of it is actually being delusional about basic, easy to obtain facts.

    You should try actually reading my posts. I'm not a huge fan of Verizon. If I had to pick a carrier to be a fanboy for, it would definitely be AT&T.

    It's just the reality.

    Well, you could go by the map on T-Mobile's website that shows how much larger Verizon's LTE network is than T-Mobile's, even with T-Mobile's extra creative crayoning and dishonest representation of AT&T's network that doesn't show Faux G, yet shows T-Mobile's tissue paper thin 5x5 B12-only LTE that has less capacity than AT&T's Faux G network.

    You clearly have some issues because you're either so delusional/stupid that you somehow believe T-Mobile has more LTE coverage than Verizon, which is just an insane concept, or you are just trolling over and over even though no one finds it funny anymore.

    In fact, you're so delusional that you've made up things that no one even claimed in the first place. T-Mobile claims that they will have equally as much LTE coverage as Verizon by the end of 2019. We'll see.

    "Better" could mean anything. But Verizon's network is still quite a bit bigger than T-Mobile's in terms of land area coverage. That's just an objective fact which is even acknowledged by T-Mobile itself.

    So easy to do.... and I've been doing it like a BOSS.

    Except when the trolling Verizon fanboy wannabe (emphasis on the "wannabe") continues to spread ridiculous lies regarding Verizon. The fact that you think Verizon has more coverage than T-Mobile, when just the opposite is true, makes me think you might have neurological issues... I'm actually serious about this.

    Don't feel bad, I stopped reading your posts after you started regurgitating lies about Verizon having more coverage than T-Mobile. When I deal with people with psychological issues such as yourself, it's pretty easy to put them in their place, especially when their version of reality borders on the absurd.

    ...that T-Mobile has more coverage than Verizon... Yes, we all get that.

    ...and the turnaround starts here, folks. Welcome back to reality.

    I have no qualms dealing with idiots that continue to spread lies and believe they're right, when they are not. You're just a notch on a totem pole to me... and a small one at that...

    Again, please stay on topic and stop running away from reality. Put your big boy pants on or leave the sandbox. For the second time, I'm not going to allow you to change topics to create MORE confusion in your delusional, delirious world.

    Such as "T-Mobile's network is BETTER than Verizon's network."

    Got it.

    No more of this petty bickering or you're out.

    I got the message and it scared me too. It was so emphatic about me using dialup that I worried about hackers or scammers using my account or something.

    P.S. How do I block mahermusic and Bigg?

    Click on name, then ignore. Note that when they are quoted or the thread has new posts by them, you will still know.

    Even better, both parties take it elsewhere instead of trashing a thread that has nothing to do with Verizon or LTE coverage. Maybe there should be a Private Bickering forum that we can all ignore.

    This thread is SUPPOSED to be about TiVo phasing out dial-up service, and as unlikely as it sounds to most of us there are still people out there who probably need help converting their S2 or S3 boxes.

    That's a great idea! Maybe the Hydra Haters can gather there too.

    But not TiVo's support. They deserve the bashing. :D

    I'm one of the original "gold-star" members on the official TiVo suppport forum, and I couldn't agree more. I gave up on it about a year ago when it turned into the the official TiVo spam forum. If they're not going to monitor it they should shut it down and just link to TCF.

    I also got that message. i never used dialup with my TivoHD. I used dialup, briefly, with a DTivo unit, at least 10 years ago.

    I don't know if it's related but my MAK number is temporarily unavailable on my TivoHD. I'm trying the usual steps before contacting support.

    Where have you been?? :)

    I believe there used to be a sticky post here about it and of course it's listed on under Support (Support & User Forums).

    Anybody know if my Moca connection will still work? I've been using since 2010. They don't mention this as a replacement, just ethernet and wireless. Makes me nervous as my Premier 4 has lifetime and don't want to lose a good thing.

    This change should NOT affect a MoCA connection.
