I you do not connect them to a telpehone line it is possible that they will call you to update "the information" on the receiver.

It's actually getting information about the receiver that they want. They will ask you to go from receive to receiver and gather that information

If they are unable to get the info on one of them and it will automatically be shut off and you will need to reverify all 4 before the reconnection. Another verification can not be performed before 24 hours

I answer based on what I learned when I was working at's possible that somethings have changed since then

Your terms and conditions with ExpressVu require you to connect to a phone jack although ExpressVu doesn't seem to get too worked up about it if you don't.

This has been discussed a lot. If you need more information, please see search existing threads for more info.

In future, please make your subject more practical so members reading know what you are trying to ask.
