Ditto. Once FIOS gets your copper, you can EVER get it back and your
inbox and snail mailbox plus your phone get deluged with incessant calls to sign
up or their TV and internet service.

I'm keeping my landline until they shut it down. Offers to sign up
for U-verse go riight into the roundfile unopened. I know hams who
dropped their land line around here and regret it. And it is hard to
get it back once you let it go. Give me the copper twisted pair. My
WeCo model 302 in the shack works great.

cheapest AT&T long distance option. Along with the usual cordless phones in
the house, I still have a couple rotary dial sets, which are the only ones
that work during a power outage. I have yet to find any cell phone of any
type that can meet the audio quality of a landline pushbutton or rotary
phone. I hear dead quiet in my landline, but the cell is full of beeps and
burps and an occasional part of a voice from somewhere else when in use. While
they have put quality cameras in cell phones now, a better mic might
improve things. The issue now is the masses that have no idea what a quality
phone connection sounds like, and apparently don't really care.
