Default Home Phone Wiring Repair

bob haller posted for all of us...

Phone companies put the NID outdoors to make service easier.

Not in my case. They installed it inside, so I don't have outside problems.
It also made it easy to diagnose. Always outside faults-my drop had 5
rockets one time.

Can't go to the basement any more so I wonder what's going to happen when
the FIOS battery ****s. As far as I am concerned the NID is now the FIOS box
and Verizon's problem. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

their techs confirm the phone is working at the NID, and its the customers hassle after that.

No, they have the helpless grandmother check and confuse her.
