no dial tone

I have a DSL line for phone and internet.   I have no dial tone on phone...just a loud buzzing sound.   My internet service comes and goes.   I've tried disconnecting everything several times with no luck on the phone service and soometimes temporarily restoring internet service.

I have tried the Verizon troubleshooting web page, which supposedly tests the line, but it seems to go into never-never land and eventually times out.  Unfortunately, I seem to have to complete this test before I can file a trouble ticket.  So, I'm in catch 22 situation.    How can I place a trouble request given I don't have a working phone and Verizon's internet trouble shooting options don't seem to be working for me?
