  • Aren't we supposed to be able to choose our phone company (for landlines)? I remember it being a big deal that we could choose. Did I imagine that?

    I can only get Verizon and they don't have caller ID here. Waaahhh!

  • In NY you can pick the phone company you get service from, but only if you want digital service through your computer or if you use one of those things like Magic Jack. If you want a standard line, it only comes from the phone company, which here is Verizon.
Thank you Oreo!

  • I'm not sure. Around here it used to be only 1 company like BellSouth, but now you can get AT&T, Comcast, or Vonage. We have an AT&T bundle that includes the landline phone, but that service might even be provided by BellSouth through AT&T...I can't remember what the bill says.
Thank you MrsS1stbaby!

  • I don't know. We have VoIP through Earthlink so I don't know about the options for "real" landlines.
Thank you Dopey406!
