Yeah my house is a nightmare, when it was built I'm not sure if the builders were just retarded or took mad shortcuts. Our guest bedrooms don't even have phone jacks and only one of them has a cable jack. When DirecTV came to install my system the tech was here for almost 12 hours, it was ridiculous.

My new house is brand new and if i didn't add cable jacks i would have only gotten 3. I still only have 2 phone jacks; soon those will be obsolete. Actually i won't even use them because i have vonage and phones that work off a base.

My dad's house he had them put in Ethernet cable jacks through out the house; totally waste now a days with WiFI.

Juts a matter of time when cable jacks will be a waste too.

They really didn't start pre wiring houses until around the mid 90's.IN our new house we had a choice of 14 lines they would run for our system. Then there is what I think he called a smart box that makes it easy to hook up to which ever system I choose. The guy also ran an extra line under the house and one in the atic. We also ran speaker wires in several rooms and out on our back porch. Should make things pretty easy. That's just what my builder package included and all comes at a cost. We are jsut about done with the house and they are now holdin me up and trying to shake out any last bit of money I have left.

Yes, some people still use a house phone. I don't want but so many people to have my cell phone because I don't want everyone I know to have 24/7 access to bugging me.

Re: So I am back...

Also if i dial 911 they know my address with out me saying a peep. Plus long conversations are more comfortable on a house phone; at least receiver wise.

Shoot only $25 a month no biggie.

Re: So I am back...

I just had comcast hooked up. Awful just plain awful service. it pains my eyes to watch their product.

The Comcast guy was like if you are lucky the FiOS guys will be done before 30 days and return all this under the Comcast 30 day GTD. Even the installers know it is junk. HA!

Re: So I am back...

Just got FIOS today at the new place. What a breath of fresh air! 15 days of craptastic and I was going crazy. How anyone can watch that crap is beyond me. I personally rather have bunny ears.
