No, if your speaking of service such as ATT or such. Comcast is considered your phone service now. All you need is to be able to plug into a wall jack and your ready to go. It's just that easy! Just remember, when your electricity goes out, so does your phone service! Sometimes the wait can be long. I have it and like it but I also use a safety necklace and do get a little bit of anxiety when the electricity goes out as you never know if it will be a few min. or a few hours, especially with the storms we have in Tn. Hope this helps answer your ?
