Even "disconnected" customers due to non-pay have access to E-911....

I believe its still the case, but you can order from the local LEC a
soft-dial tone. You hear dial tone, however the only calls that can be made
are to the LEC's Billing & to the PSAP(911). This might be a good option for
people w/ kids, etc. without paying the full price of a land line.
