Re: [Southeast] Got Dry Loop July 30th, but AT&T would not relea
This possible suggestion might get you around the droids at the ordering center.
1. Order a second (new) phone number.
2. Have the DSL moved to the line that the new number is on.
3. After the above has happened, transfer the old number to what ever carrier you want to.
4. Try cancelling the new phone number after the old one has been successfully transferred.
Notice I said to try cancelling the new phone number.
Some service areas of AT&T will want to switch you to U-Verse any way they can. Hope you don't get the "Sorry, we removed the copper wires when you told us to cancel the phone service. Now we only hook up U-Verse in your area." song and dance.

said by BlueMist:95% of U-verse is delivered over copper wires. It would be kind of hard to deliver U-verse with the copper ripped out; unless they were replacing it with fiber. Which they are not.
Hope you don't get the "Sorry, we removed the copper wires when you told us to cancel the phone service. Now we only hook up U-Verse in your area." song and dance.

Thanks for the suggestion, BlueMist, it sounds simple enough and it might work.
I will give them a call to see how fast they can hook up a second line at my place and will inform on it here.
