Land line down five days now, no cell phone.

My and my nearest neighbor's land lines have been down since May 1. I am rural with no cell service. I am in my late 70's and live alone.

All the testing says it is on their lines, not mine, but the soonest date, as of last week, that they can send someone here to determine that it is their lines, not mine, is on May 9.Smiley Mad

There have been no storms or natural disasters in this area. Is Verizon understaffed, or is it like the old Lily Tomlin line..., "We're the phone company. We don't care. We're a monopol. We don't have to care."
