Default Time Warners Phone service

Why when I add phone to my time warner account all I get is random calls from random services wanting money and I've only given my phone number out to my parents and my in-laws?

TW probably buys the rights to sell your number to outfits who market. ask them if they prctice that. TW phone is bad. If the cable goes out, you loose service! No 911/nothing! IT offers no discounts, like lifeline service.
You can add your number to the do not call list also.

have you ever heard that a cell phone even without a service can still call 911 dispatch?

Last time my cable/phone was out was 2006 and that was the October storm here in Buffalo.

Ive never received any odd calls ever with TWC. It is more likely that you used or provided your phone number to someone whether it be something like signing up for internet banking or going to the DMV.

I am sure that a phone provider does not start selling your number once you swtch. Not sure if that is even legal.
