I'll second that, in fact I voted with my wallet 2 years ago when I took 
offense at having to call the states PUC on my cell phone just to get my 
pots phone working again for the 4th time, in April since Jan 1.  Over 90 
of those days I had no pots phone from vz. I've been on cable for both 
phone and net for over 2 years now.  Verizon didn't have a quarter to call 
anyone who cared.

Cheers, Gene
