GTE Corporation, formerly General Telephone & Electronics Corporation (1955–1982), was the largest independent telephone company in the United States during the days of the Bell System. The company operated from 1926, with roots tracing further back than that, until 2000, when it was acquired by Bell Atlantic; the combined company took the name Verizon.
Alecia mentioned, "Purchased a phone from Verizon. Received phone and tried to activate it. Called customer service and was hung up on at 7 when they closed. Got connected with a "live agent" via chat support. They couldn't figure out why my phone was to be activated in three days nor could they fix the problem. Disconnected or transferred three times and had to restate my problem each time. Ultimately the tech support told me that they could cancel my activation 3 days from now but it would take an additional 3 days to get the phone activated. I've been a customer for 20 years in ready to switch carriers. Verizon Support does not have a clue what supporting customers means."
Denny Christensen says"Its stuck in my obd2 port that's not good. And my car idles rough but it need a remap tune anyhow. But I have felt some top end performance at 5500 rpm and up. All and all 1-10 I would say it's a 6.5 on performance"
