    Still, most people (no matter how many times you tell them) do not seem to get it… that a few people in this country are not able to use a cell phone from home because they cannot get a signal, and cannot call 911. Therefore, it is very important to them to have their land line repaired as soon as possible, especially if they live alone, are elderly or have a medical condition. It would be great if everyone could get a cell signal.

    Until AT&T fixes it. :) Seriously, they have not given a timetable.
