***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in!
For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address.
If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
Suggestion: Verizon Wireless Softphone

I would like to see Verizon Wireless release a softphone app for the PC.  I'd like to be able to make and receive phone calls over the Internet with my computer using my Verizon Wireless number.  It would come in handy for those times when battery power is limited or when I need to talk for an extended amount of time.

jbeaver78, I'm glad you're interested in some new ways you could use your VZW number. We always appreciate suggestions from our customers and enjoy your feedback. I'll definitely lift this idea up, so it can join our other customer recommendations. Thanks for being with Verizon!

This would be FANTASTIC - if I could use Skype or some other softphone from my laptop to take and make calls using my Verizon phone number over wireless. Wow, that would rock my socks.

 

Even if it would require connecting a Verizon "modem" device to the laptop, as long as it came with a solid softphone functionality (perfect ifiif would work with Skype) - a minimal monthly fee similar to my tablet that has a Verizon sim in it - if I could do that with my laptop. Wow.
