I just moved 2.5 miles from unincorporated Bexar County to Live Oak. After a whole bunch of trouble (to lengthy to list here), I had my phone transferred on March 4th. It didn't work, so workers came out and laid a very visible cable across my yard. Still didn't work so they said have a bad box and it could take up to 30 days to fix.
I'm not way out in the country somewhere. I'm in a subdivision that has been there at least 25 years.
Is there another phone company I can use? I know there are the internet phone companies. But I'd really like to have a land line. I really wanted to keep my old phone number and email (I also had DSL with them) but I can't keep putting up with their lack of competance forever.

Thanks

I switched for a while to an alternate landline provider that I found through Refinance Mortgage, Home Loan, Home Equity, Home Purchase, Debt Consolidation - LowerMyBills. AT&T (back then, SBC) had already done the installation, but this other company provided the service on my line. Eventually, the other company's rates crept up to a point where they were more expensive than AT&T, so I am back with AT&T.

I honestly can't recommend using another company on AT&T's lines because any service on the physical lines has to be done by AT&T. Curiously, AT&T was never particularly eager to schedule a service call for my account when I was with the other company. It took a minimum of 2-3 working days after reporting a problem before I'd get a tech out to the house foe the service call. I suspect that AT&T prioritized its own customers' needs ahead of those of its competitor.

Grande phone service is essentially a hardline... It is not like Time Warners phone over cable, or a true internet phone.... In fact it is possible to get phone only....
