Access Problems Part II

Posted by Alex on April 23, 2001 at 10:04:31:

I originally posted a message titled "Access Problems" regarding the fact that my phone service is out and the super of my building is interfering with it being restored. You can read the post for the complete details. I received a few responses as solutions and I have included the last one within this post. I was wondering if there were any other possible solutions that anyone could offer other than attacking Verizon. I have been doing that for an entire month now on my own.

Here is the last "solution" I received along with my replies
: Is Verizon telling you the truth - or just blaming the super for their own lack of repair ? Does this problem affect only you or everyone in the building ?

This problem affects many people in the building because we all share this cable that snaps or whatever happens. Last year when it happened, all the people on my floor lost their service at the same time mine went out.

: Disconnect the Verizon phone entirely and get a PCS cell phone and digital cable for internet access. Its cheaper, better, and more convenient.

I already have cable modem service and a cell phone. I would like to have a backup phone for when the battery on my cell runs down since it doesn't live up to those talk times they claim. Does anyone else have any other suggestions as to how I can handle this? The letter to the landlord and withholding rent is an obvious logical solution, but are there any other options (legal or otherwise) I can pursue?
