Re: Question about my dad's IPDSL install

said by mhn8d16:

There is an apparent malfunction in communication between myself and my dad. Probably because his mobile phone service is AT&T, and his landline service is centurylink, his 62 year-old brain confuses what he practically has defined in his brain as two telephones he's gotta a pay for (He just upgraded to a smart-phone a few months back).

Why would seeing two telephones (mobile and landline) he's gotta a pay for be inaccurate? Or are you saying he views the internet connection as a third phone to pay for?

Based on the OP, father equated telephone with landline. Assumed landline was AT&T (both "lines").

Reality was, father has one landline phone (CenturyLink), and one wireless phone (AT&T).

Well, that is my best guess; based on subsequent post from the OP.
