Need an inside Phone Line

I just bought a house and the phone company says that they only guarantee a dial tone on the phone box outside, not to any jacks in the house. I do not understand because the seller was using a phone in the house last week. What do I have to do to get an inside line without paying the phone company a bunch of money to come out? Thanks, Jennie

That is how it works. The phone company provides dial tone to the NID box outside. If the house is wired for telephone, then there should be dial tone inside. Plug in a telephone and listen to see if it there. If not, then something must be disconnected.

Hope this helps.
