land line no dial tone

am i the only one without landline service in fulton county ny, town of stratford? i checked the outside box and theres no dial tone there either. a tech cant get here until next monday!! i have no cell servic here so i cant provide verizon with an alternative number, so i cant place a repair request. obviously i can not go without any phone service at all until monday. can you tell me if verizon is having problems in the area or is it just me??
