There are little magnet gadgets available at Radio Shack that can help with certain kinds of
interference on phone lines. Basically, the phone line gets fed through the magnet a few times
under the theory that this will help cancel out noise. I've never seen one do any good, though.
Just a thought.
Your phone company will probably cop out of helping you (mine would anyway--and I work for them!) on
the basis that "We are only responsible for the phone line up to the point where it enters your
house. It looks like the inside wiring is the problem, so you will have to pay for any service."
It's worth a shot at giving them a call, though, perhaps even if you have to pay. You can have the
line conditioned, but you usually have to pay for that.
