Sorry to chime in late. Just got back from a 15 day cruise last night.
Is this the program that the Verizon store rep said will handle wired
home security systems,too? I was told by a store rep that "later this

security systems and satellite TVs (stuff that needs a phone jack) and
was wondering if this was the same.
