2. You could have two lines going to your BB. If you don't want a line open, just turn it off, no?
I had a land line at my old apartment because my roommate was making a lot of international calls. I used it exactly once, to make an international call. Other than that, I don't even answer calls from that phone.
Didn't realize I could get another number going to my BB. Might look into it. However, I still want to physically fax documents. The main thing I fax are actually wine orders from my 20 or so mailing lists. I could easily email my CC number and such, but call me paranoid, I do not like emailing that stuff. Also, so much easier to just fax a piece of paper, vs. scanning etc. Lastly, don't those web-fax services have a monthly? My fax cost $80 four years ago.
That 2nd BB number is an interesting thought though.
