Hi Eric.  I'm sure it is not just a one modem or one phone thing.  I get 
into three fones in my house.  Two were bought from GTE, and one cordless 
phone.  In my sons house, he has a GTE phone and a cordless and I get 
into both of them. I'm sure I'm getting into my neighbors phones, but 
they never have said anything.  73 and CU in the SS
