A Week to Get a Tech to Come Look at Phone???

Why does it take almost a week for a tech to come out and look at our phone???  No line/dial tone and first appointment isn't until 8/19?  I live in an area where there is no cell service at all, so no other options!!  Then they say I am going to be contacted at my alternate number (which is my cell) and if they can't contact me, my ticket will be closed.  How am I supposed to be reached when I don't have cell service at home???  Not everyone has this option!!  Then I look online to see what other options to contact Verizon, maybe chat or something to see if there is anything that can be done to escalate an earlier appointment and I am told through all these automated options, they recommend I CALL the 1-800 number??? How am I supposed to do that WITHOUT A PHONE????   Unreal. Anyone one know I can get this escalated?? PLEASE HELP!!
