Static on the land line
My phone line has become unacceptably unreliable-- static which is sometimes so loud that I can't use it, and an intermittent echo which is sometimes as loud as my voice.

Also, the volume on my land line got so low (on two different but similar phones) that it was almost unusable. Weirdly, changing to a different sort of phone solved that.

I'll be telling Cavalier that I'm changing providers unless they get it fixed, and I'm wondering who's got the best quality/service. Any recommendations?

Well, I didn't use a cell phone enough to have a regular contract, but I used Virgin Mobile pas-as-you-go phones. Very happy with them. But currently lacking funds to add minutes.

I've been using Verizon for wire phone & internet and they are reliable; can't say about FiOS. My only problems have been from the wiring inside the apartment.

Can't really help, sorry.

I've been meaning to research phone service lately. My land line is $30 a month and I never use it except for going directly to the answering machine. I leave the ringer off because otherwise I'd have to go on a rampage against telemarketers.

A large part of why I still have it is so I can truthfully give out a phone number that isn't my cell to entities I don't really trust but who still may need to contact me.

I have Verizon for cell, but they want $30 a month for a second phone number, so no point in changing there.

Any suggestions for a cheap phone number that never makes calls and always goes to voice-mail?

My cable company says they can add phone service, but I haven't checked on the price yet.

And I've now got three different phones hooked to the landline, each of which lacks a different aspect of functionality.
