thats what i thought, but was hoping for an easier way. given that there are no phone lines in the house and i have the digital voice telephone plan,
would having a contractor run telephone wires be the only way to get service? if so, what is the general range of wiring/wall jack installation? If there is a less expensive way, what would that be?
or should i just cancel the digital voice option and go with a VOIP service? and then just use a phone that connects to the router via wifi?

Probably there are a few exotic ways to get the signal to other locations. The simplest being a wireless phone station near the entry. But I am not sure how many others exist. Certainly running wired connection would be the most reliable.

You could try using something like a GE InstaJack Wireless Phoneline Jack. Provided you're not using powerline extenders for ethernet, these extend a traditional phone line over the electrical infrastructure (outlet to outlet) in your home. You'd plug on in near the ONT and make a short phone line run from the ONT to the jack and then plug the other jack into an outlet elsewhere in your home and plug a phone in there.
There are different models and different vendors of similar products, but searching the term on your favorite South American Rainforest based shopping site will yield a number of alternatives.

Sounds like my house ... except I have VoIP adapter and use an internet based VoIP provider. ATA is in the basement, base station attached to the ATA, and wireless handsets (Panasonic) in each room of the house (link-2-cell via bluetooth, intercom, etc.). No phone lines used anywhere in the house. Glad you found a solution.
