Post-Sandy, we are thinking it would be good to have an old-fashioned landline for future outages. We currently have FIOS phone, cable and internet. When we lost power, after the second day we had no home phone I guess because the battery backup died. So is there such a thing as old-fashioned landline service anymore? And who can I call to get this service from? In central NJ?
Son in Ireland has broken down in a car from Cong to Shannon airport. He has a US cell phone and cannot figure out how to call for police or road aid, Can anyone explain how he would dial for help? THANKS!
