Re: [Homephone] Losing dial tone every day I agree with Anonymuss.
My son bought a house that had an alarm system from the previous owner.
The initial problem was traced to an improper Internet filter in the house and since my son was dithering about buying the ADT service; that was all that was done.
The annoyances caused by the beep - beep beep every time any door was opened resulted in the ADT system being disconnected.
If there ever was an alarm installed in the house, locate the control box, remove the electrical connection and open the box and remove the battery AND make sure there is no connection to the phone line.
