Verizon Hub Review

Back in 2005 there were rumors about an upcoming product known then as the Verizon One, which was said to reinvent the home phone. Then two years later a prototype was revealed at CES ‘07, showing a device with a color touchscreen and interactive software. It has now been another two years and the device has finally been released under the name ''Verizon Hub''...

I love this device, for all the things it offers under the 35 dollar price tag it is well worth it, plus it is now my 4th digital picture frame. And yes you can customize ringtones

Thank you for your comment. Our testing shows that you can select from a list of pre-installed ringtones, but you can't add or upload your own ringtones.

In reference to PhoneArena criticizing them for making this exclusive to VZW customers only: It will definitely NOT limit the device's growth. If any of the other cellcos had this they would probably do the same thing. Part of the Hub includes VZW's proprietary Chaperone service and VCast video. They now also have included internet radio at no extra cost. Also, you forgot to mention that calls to Canada are unlimited as well ( as is certain U.S. territories like Guam ).

I realize this topic is almost 1 year old, but i will ask my question anyway. My question being, i notice in the beginning of the article it was stated that this was used with comcast, was the $35 service fee required to use ALL the device features or just certain proprietary ones? Can i use this device at all for free, or must i pay the $35 fee just to hook it up and use any of it's features?
