Default Home passes from halfway house / home confinment: Home phone service issue

We are trying to get home passes and eventually home confinement but it seems the home phone is an issue. I have a bundle package that includes a home phone but it has all the features. Bop says that's a no no. If I change my phone to what they are requiring it will increase my bill by $80. Is there another way to go about this? I'm having a hard time getting Cox yo understand what I am needing. We can't even get the house inspected til I get the phone situation fixed. So frustrating.

Your going to have to get a basic hardwire line. I don't know of any cheap way I tried where I am and it was crazy high. See what other companies in your area offer. If he has to be on a monitor then maybe you can get a lifeline discount I don't know but it might be best to keep his line seperate then yours.

We were able to get the phone provider to remove all of the troublesome "features", like caller ID and call forwarding, but only because it was something they already offered.

After spending half a day arguing with Cox I was able to get it done. It will cost more money for less features go figure
